April Second


Well I didn't get my vacation... I'm not really mad though... maybe disappointed... for some reason I wasn't really looking forward to it... maybe cause I kinda had a feeling something was up each time I asked the supervisor if she approved my vacation and she didn't answer me... I checked the computer at work this morning and I was on the schedule... so when supervisor came in I said 'so you couldn't approve my vacation'... she said 'no and it's been eating at me all week'... I said 'so the three times I asked you, you couldn't have told me then'.... seems we may have an audit next week, the same auditor that was supposed to come the last three weeks... so we have to relabel the stockroom and relocate the shoes... and we had a lot of shoes come in this week... I can understand that... plus they have never really declined any of my past vacations... I'm just wondering if the supervisor was going to say anything before I left work today if I hadn't have asked... although when I was leaving work she was saying that the auditor probably wouldn't come next week and there weren't too many shoes in receiving... I wonder if she was waiting for me to ask about my vacation, but I didn't say anything... just that I have five weeks of vacation and four personal days to take in the next seven months before the Christmas season hits... I just feel bad for son2 and son3 cause we weren't able to do anything on their Spring break...


So I've been off work since 11:30 this morning and I have got nothing done... except eat lunch and snack on chips... and take some pictures in the backyard and hang out on the computer... son1 came home from work and left again with friend A to buy horse feed and chicken feed... girlfriend is supposed to come over after she gets off work... I have talked to hubby as today is his day off... The van is still at the car place... hopefully it will be done tomorrow as they are closed Sunday and we need both cars for Monday... they had to replace all four breaks and rotor... they did a tune up... they used the parts we had bought to fix the oil leak... and they have to replace the radiator and water pump... eventually we need shocks in the back too but not now.... $1450.00!!! but we are getting a 10% discount and top priority to get done by tomorrow since we have gone there for many years and they know hubby by name... I tell hubby it's good he has a car guy... and then the Saturn still needs it's brakes checked too... and I need a dishwasher... and the dryer is squeaking away at the moment... I have spent my tax return like three times already and I haven't even got it yet...



I have a headache... I am off the weekend though including Easter... son1 has Easter off too... don't know what his plans are yet though... he was invited to his Dad's family out of town... don't know what girlfriend is doing... Hubby boiled the eggs today to color tomorrow... Tomorrow I'll make a cake and get the baskets all ready... Hubby wants to do some yard work in the backyard... I want to get a few things done on my list that I was saving for vacation... And then on Easter if it doesn't rain we may go to the zoo...
Hubby has gone to pick up Chinese food... We have Supernatural from last night to watch and Men Who Stare at Goats with George Clooney and Ewan McGregor... and we have ice cream and strawberries....
Tomorrow is Show and Tell at The Motivation Station so be sure to stop by and leave your links of what you have been up to...
Hubby is back with the Chinese Food!!
Happy Good Friday Everyone!!
Happy Journaling...

Oh that is not good that they didn't let you have vacation. Looks like they didn't even have a good reason either. At least you have the weekend off so you can enjoy Easter with your family. Sooner or later they are going to have to let you take vacation. Hang in there!

Have a very Happy and Blessed Easter!
