1st day at work closing

Today was my first day at work where I closed by myself - and I think I did it right - I mean there really wasn't that much I could have messed up. The lady that had the morning shift did not have any business (zero, nada) and I had two sales - both cash - one for a jacket and the other for two bars of ice cream (that one was Dan and I). So, there wasn't that much I could have messed up - other than the paperwork that we have to turn in and I'm pretty sure I did it correctly - guess I'll find out the next day that I work. Actually today wasn't that bad - a little boring (I did read some) but I also straighten the shelves and refolded some of the merchandise. Just a typical day I guess. I'm sure that it will be busier when the weather clears - it has been raining here for two days and is suppose to rain through Saturday. Not many people want to be out in the rain.

After work - most of the hosts met at the Lodge for dinner - Dan and I had soup and salad bar again - I still say you can't beat the deal ($7.81 for both of us - which included dessert -I didn't have any due to the ice cream bar today - and drinks). After we ate we sat around and talked and laughed for about an hour. It was a nice relaxing evening. Only one of the couples didn't come - Don and Judy - Judy had a terrible headache (I can understand that!) - but maybe they will be able to go the next time.

Tonight Dan can't pick up anything on the television - probably due to the cloud cover and rain - so we are just chilling. I told him he could put a movie on - but he just wants to read his new book - the only problem with that is, he is going to read the thing in two days and then won't have anything to read again. Oh well -I'm reading a couple of books at the same time - one on my Nook (here at home) and the other is a paperback down in the store. They are both pretty good.

Tomorrow I think we are going to go into Helen and do some grocery shopping at the little local store - we only need things like milk, bread, and butter - maybe another dozen eggs. We should be able to pick that stuff up locally and not have to go into Cleveland to the Wal Mart Super Center. I don't think we have anything else planned for the day - since it is suppose to still be raining we will probably just chill here. Then we work on Saturday and off on Sunday. The schedule is one you have to really watch because there is no set framework to look at - but that's okay. We just have to make sure and keep track of when we are working.

I don't really have much else to report - but to tell you the truth I don't think anyone out there is reading this right now - not a single comment on my opportunity to go to China. Come on guys, that's pretty cool!!!! Bet if I had said that I was going to China I would have some comments!! Oh well, such is life.

I hope your week has gone well and you are looking forward to your weekend - take care - and if it raining where you are - try and stay dry!

I'll talk to you tomorrow!


  1. Yes I AM reading and I even told someone at church tonight (I help with ESL) about your opportunity. They were missionaries in China for several years. They said the people over there are so grateful for any help you give them and you can save a lot of money living over there. It's been a monsoon here all afternoon and more is forecast for tomorrow.

  2. I didn't say anything about China because I wanted to say GO!!!!!!

    It sounds like you're gearing up to make French Toast with that grocery list. It's what everyone must eat during a snow storm. They all buy milk, eggs and bread. Happy Friday.

  4. Okay, Okay - so you guys are out there - and believe me - if it weren't for the fact that we have made commitments to other people I would have gone (and I still think about it) but I don't think it was meant to be. Glad you guys are there! (Hey Dana - what's up???)


Rainy, Dreary Days

Well, I don't know what the weather has been like where you live but here it has been warm, overcast, and rainy.  We are having temperat...
