Well it’s been awhile since I have written ….. It has been a grueling few weeks. Working 10 hours a day really is a toll on the body. We have really not done anything on our days off but, clean, laundry, cook and get groceries.
We were moved from inbound department to outbound. We now pack orders in boxes. Neither of us like it, but we can’t seem to get moved back, believe me I have tried!!
The original 6 that trained in the beginning was Bob, Gary, Norman, Loretta, Jesse and myself. We all would sit together at breaks and lunch, so splitting us up was sad. Norm, Loretta, Jesse and I were being moved to outbound, but Norm and Loretta decided to just quit.
So before they left we all went out to dinner the night before. It was fun to have some social time with them and to say a proper see ya down the road. We went to Jack’s bar and grill. They had a shuffle board game there and 4 of us played, although we didn’t finish the game we had fun.

Yesterday was supposed to be our overtime day, so we were up, dressed and off to work. When we got there the parking lot was full!!! Jesse dropped me off then parked the car. Once we got to our work area, we were told that there were too many people and not enough packing machines and that they were going to send people home. I couldn’t get my hand raised fast enough. We were out of there in a flash!
We spent the day just relaxing around. I took down the fall decorations and put up a few Christmas things. I really didn’t want to do much because I would have to try and put them away when we leave. Jesse took the car to get it washed, just to get the grime off it.
It has been very cold here; below freezing at night and in the 30’s during the day. Can’t wait to get somewhere warm.
Mr. B has been just hanging in there. He is lethargic, and still having problems holding his urine, but eating and drinking. He is still quite loving and will let me cradle him just like a baby.
Bye for now.
