October Ninth

Welcome-vi

fetchr

Thursday I was up and off to work for the certification… Took me all day just to finish putting toddler shoes in numerical order… We had others from other departments helping with the sales floor… The VIP was at another store in the morning so still hadn’t gotten to our store by time I left at 2pm… Can you believe we passed with a 94%… Seems everyone was passing… We could miss up to three things… so he was giving everyone a chance to fix some things so you could pass…. So he’s not coming back on the 25th but he is coming back with his boss the second week of November…

Came home, walked to pick up son3 with hubby… did homework with son3… and had dinner… we watched two episodes of Hercules with Kevin Sorbo… Bones and Fringe came on but I fell promptly asleep at 8pm… So I still need to watch Bones… I’m not into Fringe at the moment with all the alter world they are doing…

Thursday I ate: vitamins, water… lunch~chimichanga, yogurt, cola… tortilla chips… dinner~blackeyed peas on rice… orange soda… two brownies…

Friday I was off to work to set the ad… had help though… changed out some sale tables and hanging signing… wasn’t able to print missing signs as the sign machine was out of ink…

Went to lunch and my friend who had left to work at another store came to surprise me… so she vented about her certification and we got all caught up on our families…

I did some online training and discovered that the system is giving me 40 hours a week vacation again… So the one for this week can be deleted but my pay check was all messed up again for this pay period… giving me overtime and double overtime…  I did discover though that it only paid me for 18 hours of vacation as I didn’t have 40 hours left to take… So I will hand it over to HR to sort out on Monday… and keep an eye on my time statement every week til we get passed this… I had requested vacation for this week but just one day and deleted it… So now I’m thinking of just canceling my vacation for Halloween and just taking two personal holidays to have Halloween off… and then in January I will see what vacation I have left and take some then… Our year for taking vacation ends in January…

Came home and son2 was home again with an upset tummy… Hubby was going to take him to school when he was feeling better but he had missed half the day by then and just had part of Biology and Art left… But son2 got lots of homework done Thursday night and Friday…

I was home early on Friday so hubby and I went to Walmart to check on pants for the boys and a few odds and ends… We got home in time to walk and pick up son3 and I put enchiladas in the oven for dinner…

We watched The Big Bang Theory, William Shatner’s new show, CSI which ran out of tape when taping so we finished it online… then the boys went to bed and hubby and I watched Criminal Minds…

Son1 and girlfriend were off at The Big Fresno Fair…

Friday I ate: vitamins, green tea tablet, water… lunch~chimichanga, yogurt, cola… tortilla chips… chicken enchilada, corn, beans, tortilla chips, lemon lime soda… ice cream cone…

Today we all slept in til 9am… so nice…

Hubby made breakfast of scrambled eggs…

Son1 was off to friend S’s house to work on jeeps and trucks…

When son1 came back all the boys were playing video games…

Hubby and I were going to go to Hillcrest Farm Pumpkin Patch but I couldn’t figure out if they were open yet as their website said the last three weeks of October which starts next weekend but then another page said the 9th to the 31st… So we will wait til next Saturday and then maybe the boys will want to go too…

So hubby has been decorating the front yard for Halloween…

I decorated a bit more inside…

Son1 was off with Friend S again…

Then off with girlfriend…

I trimmed the roses a bit…

Played a bit on Facebook…

The house is a mess…

I did son1 and son2’s laundry…

Now I am doing mine…

Hubby is watching Legend of Sleepy Hollow, animated version with Bing Crosby…

Boys are fighting over the internet…

I think it is time to start pulling out the leftovers for dinner…

What should we watch… we have Hercules, McHale's Navy, and F Troop…

Our team only has 36 hours this week… I automatically get 30 since I am full time… not good for the other two… tomorrow I only work til 10am, just four hours… so time to clean the house then…

Gonna eat dinner before I post this so I can finish “today I ate”…

Dinner is done… We watched Hercules, a couple of F Troops and now son3 wants to watch Van Helsing with Hugh Jackman… I got caught up a bit at Fronterville, Farmville and Yoville on Facebook…

Son1 and girlfriend are back from the movies, they saw Life as We Know It… now they are watching 13 Ghosts… girlfriend wanted to see a scary movie even though she was scared of our decorations in the front yard…

I’m ready for sleeping…

Today I ate: vitamins, water… breakfast~scrambled eggs, sausage dog, English muffin, hot chocolate… cola… tortilla chips and beans… lemon lime soda… dinner~enchilada, corn, rice, black eyed peas, water… chocolate frosting…
