Everchanging Routine

The voting is done, I'm home from work and the boys are home from school... A bit of relaxing before we get to the homework and the sink full of dirty dishes and then hubby will be home and I'm thinking breakfast for dinner and we have the new Get Smart to watch tonight... On the way home there were people on various corners encouraging people to vote and on one corner was one guy with a sign that read vote Yes on 8(canceling gay marriage in California) and on the same corner four guys with a an American flag and a rainbow flag and a sign that read vote No on 8.... When the light would change the one guy with the yes sign would cross and then all the guys would follow right behind, lol....

Work was good today although I barely made a dent in all I wanted to do... We're still having the VIP's tomorrow in the afternoon... Today I wanted to stock the men's shoes, the men's work boots, open a ton of boxes, stock the women's hanging shoes and clear up some areas in the stockroom... I didn't even finish stocking the men's shoes, the day went so fast... But we are still way more ready then the last time when we lost control due to the remodel... Also at work there are talks of schedule changes, actually I've thought of it myself, as we are still trying to adhere to the correct way of how shoes should be as open sell instead of commission... So my days of 7am may be disappearing if they decide to try it... We're not supposed to schedule anyone before 10am, although the store opens at 9:30am... I just know I don't want to stay past 4:45pm... which I thought of even with eliminating the daycare... And then starting the week before Thanksgiving I will be working Saturday's until Christmas, which may mean I get Monday's off with hubby for a while again so we can Christmas shop... I just hope I can stay with Wednesday as my day off now... I'll need to update my availability as I'm full time 30hrs and need to be available so I don't go below 30hrs plus even be available to go up to 35-38hrs if needed... and to keep my medical insurance...


About a half hour before I left work today guess what they are now playing on the P.A. system.... CHRISTMAS MUSIC... half regular music and half Christmas, actually I expected to hear it when I went on Sunday as November had started... and it's really not too early as you only have three weeks to get those packages in the mail and then just four weeks til Christmas after that...
Now that all the Halloween hoopla and all the AOL hoopla is over I need to get back on routine of a few things... like the crunches and weight lifting I was doing so well... Now that I'm back to work from vacation, I'm back to eating yogurt and although I've been drinking two sodas a day instead of just one, I'm compensating with water... and son3 has got out of the habit of wearing his patch after school to strengthen his left eye, so got to get back on that... And I hate that it gets dark so early now... I run out of time to take pictures of the roses, yes they are still blooming and I'm ready for bed at 7pm when I still have things to do, lol... It's very windy today and finally the temps are in the 60's...It rained up til yesterday but mostly at night when I'm sleeping and can't see it... and Gas is $2.49, can you believe it....
Happy Journaling...

I'm with you, I don't like the darkness so early either. I am running around feeding & closing up the animals in the dark and I don't like it!! I have to re-adjust my schedule now.

You really have a hectic schedule between work & family. I got tired just reading everything you did.

Sounds like your store is really busy! Hope you get the hours that you want. Wishing you a blessed week. Blessings, Janie

Your life sounds so much like mine - down to the whole eye patch thing for my youngest , which we haven't been doing lately either!

I think we must have been seperated at birth ;-)

At the Wal mart here they were playing all Christmas music Nov 1. Gas here is 2.45, well on Monday it was, it changes so fast I'm not sure what it is.
I don't like it getting dark early either.

One of the Seattle radio stations played Christmas music all day on Halloween. I thought that was a neat idea. They are back to regular programming now~it was just for the one day. I got gas yesterday for $2.299 ($2.30). I noticed today it was pretty dark shortly before 6pm. But for awhile it's lighter in the morning. Have a good evening...Linda in WA

When I went out today gas was $1.93. Why is it still so high where you are at?
Hugs, Chrissie

It is unusual for us but my one and only rose bush still has roses on it. I'll have to see if I can get a picture. Hope the scheduling goes ok for you.

Linda~
I always hated stocking men's shoes or zoning the men's isles...LOL I feel for you today!
Thank you so much for the card. I love it! I have put it in my scrapbook (with all of your other cards over the years) and I must say it's one of my favorites. Wherever did you find that???

You take good care!
Huggers,
Gayla

PS: Finally Google/Blogger is identifying me as GaylaGal instead of VegasGal....LOL!
