Lotta Joy may not want to post about her piddles for fear of boring her readers, but I suppose I’m not as concerned. At least I’m writing SOMEthing.
I’m still upset about receiving a pic of my car in the mail with a hefty fine attached. It’s not even my best side. He should’ve shot me going instead of coming… you know, to show how super fast I am….
I wrote the check today and managed to refrain from writing FU in the comments section. I plan to chuck it out the window as I pass through the city today. Oh wait, that’s right, I DON’T DRIVE THROUGH THEIR CITY! But they’re getting my money anyway. Hope they spend it wisely.
Work has slowed down to a normal busy. One of my trainees is not coming along as fast as we’d like, so that’s been tough. We’re looking into finding another department in which she can shine. I know her feelings will be hurt, but it’s best for all involved to move her on to the next thing.
Our other trainees are holding they’re own and are now a help most times and no longer a hindrance. We’ve got two brand new ones this week, and they’ll need time and patience. With luck, they’ll learn quickly, and I can finally get back to having time for my other responsibilities.
We’re also getting closer to signing a contract with our very interested buyers. We’ve agreed on a number, and have asked them to get the contract drawn up. We’ve half-heartedly begun looking for another place to live, and we’re hoping to find something that works before we’re left homeless. In the meantime, I am happily not cleaning the house.
Just today I finalized our family vacation plans. We’ve decided on a couple of nights in Gatlinburg, TN and a couple of nights in Nashville. We’ve reserved a cabin in the Smoky Mountains and hope to fit some white water rafting and zip lining in the few days we’re there. And in Nashville, live music, BBQ, and the American Pickers shop are on the agenda. Only a few more weeks!
