I miss my journal...


Hello! I'm here... and I now have two days off!! Inventory is over!! I haven't heard yet how we did... On Tuesday at 4pm I finished opening the last box, phew... Except for setting the ads on Sundays, all I have been doing for the last two weeks is opening boxes and boxes of shoes... Wednesday was inventory in our department... I only worked 9-1pm as it is my usual day off as son3 gets out of school early... The inventory team started counting at 6am and were done with the sales floor and almost done with the stockroom by time I got there... that included our associates checking counts behind them... Our department was completely done before 10am... last year we finished about 11:30am... with more people counting... we were way more prepared this year... So I did my weekly scan of the floor for our display reports... Worked the exception sheets for inventory... and straightened the displays as we couldn't move anything or take out any stock... time went quick though, I was worried it would go slow, lol... Thursday it was just me in the morning again from 9-1pm as son3 had early day all this week for teacher conferences, he didn't have one... So I stocked work boots the entire time and still have a lot more to bring out... But that will have to wait til Monday, as Sunday is ad day, and start on the boxes that have now come in on my days off...

I finished reading all the Twilight books... I don't know why but that was very stressful, lol... I just wanted to get to the end and see what happened... It took up five weeks of my life, I couldn't move on til I finished... I have since started another book and it is nice and relaxing and Bentley Little is a bit warped and freaky... I will say that the fourth book of the series was the best and yes I like the ending... They all live happily forever and ever and ever and ever... Which I figured, it was the how I needed to know...


Son2 got a text from son1 last week... Nothing extensive just that he was working a part time job three nights a week repairing motorcycles in addition to his full time job at Cycle Gear... well probably not too full time as his hours are cut according to budget with the cut backs this year... So I'm assuming he and girlfriend are still together or living together out of necessity or he left her and is at a friend's... Don't know until he is ready to tell us...

Son2 turned in his papers for cheerleading and found out he is not the only guy trying out... He has a meeting on April 23rd and then try outs are May 2nd I think... He got a 50/50 on his Call of the Wild report and a 50/50 on his Romeo and Juliet report... He was also asked by his construction teacher to join the competing construction team, he felt really good about being asked but after thinking it over through the weekend, he told his teacher it wasn't something he was interested in...

Son3 did not have a teacher conference this week which is for students that are possibly failing, so I guess I will accept that he is going to the third grade... However the teacher asked hubby to see her before school on Monday as there were some state testing results that she wanted to share with us so we could work on it at home while studying... He got his progress report yesterday: Reading C, Language B-, Writing C, Spelling C+ and Math B...


And I even started the taxes! My goal is to be done before April 1st... Just one more week and the boys have two weeks off for spring break and just two more weeks and I have a week of vacation for Easter... We are open Easter day.... The Easter Bunny is not even ready with the boys baskets yet... Today the boys are off at school, hubby is off at work and I have a whole day just for me... I am on the second load of dishes in the dishwasher, the third load of laundry in the washer... I have my list ready but two days to get it done; ecards and cards for April holidays and bdays, water plants, fill the bird feeders, son3 needs a haircut badly, straighten up, clean up some of son3's toys that were left outside too long so I can put them back in his room, sprinkle snail treats, balance the checkbook, taxes, vacuum, Netflix movies: The Miracle Worker, Open Season 2 and High School Musical 3, make some teriyaki chicken for dinner, read journals and get sucked into Facebook several times a day.....

Happy Journaling...

Linda I miss you. Don't have time right now, but I have lots of reading to do. I need to catch up on the fam. I'm so terrible I don't read or WRITE anymore. When something isn't fun anymore you don't wanna do it. I just didn't want you to think I fogot about you and your precious family.
Hugs, Chrissie
