Let's Try Mobile Blogging.

As I'm sitting here eating birthday cake, one of our sales persons birthday was Monday and our manager bought a cake and we have leftovers, in between calls coming through and trying to finish my morning work I've decided I don't want to do that anymore and that I'd rather be blogging via my mobile device. And I'm sure this will take me a good amount of time to finish because our phone has been ringing off the hook today.

Today I am working alone since there is only two full-time office workers and my office manager has the day off, which who I usually work with, and I don't mind working alone - I did it for two weeks and was fine. I'm new, I've been here a little less then three months, but I'm expected to know everything, to work 40+ hours a week for less then 9.00 a hour. ( Hopefully I will be getting a raise when my probationary period is up otherwise I will find a new job. )
Not only am I expected to know everything within the office, some stuff I wasn't even shown and learned how to do today, I'm also a repair woman since I've now had to fix our copier, it broke this morning, and I'll be taking care of the printer situation today that has been going on since Saturday.

My schedule is constantly changing and for once I thought I had one that was consistant but nope, of course not, its been changed again. Next week I'll be closing on Friday and then that following Wednesday I will be closing again. Without breaks, which we get 30 minutes for lunch, that's 41 hours. What happened to getting in trouble for me working overtime? Sure the paycheck will be nice but at the end of the day it's leaving me feeling frazzled.

I can't wait for my 4 day mini vacation that will be happening in October. I requested 2 days off to see my brother at his Basic Training Graduation and then I have two of my regular days off at the same time so its going to be really nice. That's one thing, right now, that I'm looking foward to. I'm also looking foward to Sunday, which is when we are celebrating our 1 year anniversary.

Anyway, our one year anniversary is going to be a very special day. I can't believe it's already been a year. I ended up buying a bottle of wine last night and I'm going to use that for our anniversary, even though we already opened it, so I'm pretty excited for it.

I'd better get back to work and do something productive since I sat here for 20 minutes typing away on my Palm. Now my thumbs are sore.

Wow, I am actually using this thing.

The only thing I don't like about this blog is that the layouts suck and I'm not computer savvy, shock I know, enough to make one of my own.

Anyway, I ended up going shopping the other day and bought myself a pretty cute outfit. We were out getting shampoo, since I bought two conditioners, and I decided I needed to buy something for myself and ended up not seeing anything that I liked at Target so we headed over to Khols. I wasn't even planning on going shopping just buying the one thing I needed and that was it but of course I got distracted and ended up spending $ 70 dollars. I got a cute, purple, sweater shirt and then a pencil skirt and then of course the thing I orginally sought out to purchase. My jaw litteraly dropped when I saw the total and I actually argued with the sales lady asking if these were the discounted prices. Which they were I'm just used to shopping at places like Ross, which I will never shop at again because their clothes are poor quality, and getting 6 outfits for $100 dollars. Last night I also went shopping, which these are things I actually needed, and got new eyeshadow, mascara, nailpolish, a necklace, a black headband and some Carpet Fresh or as William likes to call them "stupid things". Which ended up being another $ 50 dollars for one bag worth of stuff which is outrageous but that's all the spending, shopping, I'll be doing for at least a couple of months.

My next paycheck is already spent seeing as my car payment is due on the 8th and then I've got to get groceries, maybe this time I'll actually get two weeks worth, and then figure out something to get William for our 1 year anniversary. Speaking of paycheck's work is going pretty good my boss came back today and it was nice to be able to eat my lunch is peace or not have to rush to use the restroom. And I got the time off that I requested for my Brothers Basic Graduation in October which will be nice considering it will be a four day weekend!

Hopefully I'll be starting my Project 365 back up again since I've got fresh batteries in my camera and I'll post those on here, too. I guess that's it for now time to start winding down and getting ready for work tomorrow. Hopefully it will go by fast and my day off will get here sooner.

Nothing Better To Do.

The couch has pretty much been the only place I've been today, besides the trip down the street to Taco Bell, because last night all of the sudden I felt feverish and dizy/light headed. Honestly I think it's my body's way of telling me to slow down and just take it easy. So that's what I've done all day and I've got everything I need next to me - gatoraid, my antibiotics, ibproufen, the thermometer, and my cell phone and charger, as well as plenty of blankets. And I'm bored out of my mind. There is only so many shows you can watch before you've run out, there is only so much Myspace or internet I can take before I'm ready to do something else.

Last night my temperature was 101.1 degrees and now it's managed to get down to 99.5 and it's nice not feeling like I'm cold all the time. I am feeling a little bit better then I was last night, or even this afternoon, but I am still going to take it easy and not push myself to do anything - like clean our apartment that's really bugging me.

I did have plans for today and I'm rather dissapointed but I'm glad I didn't push myself to go out and run around town and take the chance of making myself worse. There's always tomorrow or even later this week to do those things that need to be done.

Well, I guess I've got to find a way to pass the hours before William gets off work and Are You Smarter Then A Fifth Grade just really isn't helping. Maybe I'll read the book I've been trying to finish for almost a year now.

New Blog Site?

I offically now have three different blogging sites, Livejournal, Vox and this one. Livejournal I am just tired of and I never get a response on anything meaningful so it's almost like what's the point of writing? Vox, only one person I know has a Vox and I half the time it won't even work for me. So I decided to make this one now the question is - Will I actually use it? I guess we will see. I used to write about anything and everything and now I hardly ever right and it sucks. I miss writing.

It's actually a huge step for me to make a public blog usually mine are Preferred Users only so this is a big step for me. I may re-think it and make it Friends Only but then not everyone would be able to read it, hence the reason why it's public.

I've been feeling rather frazzled this week since my boss is on vacation, our office manager, and I've been there by myself the entire week except for one day. But, I've been doing really well and I've proven myself that I'm a necessity to the company. Back to my orginal point - me feeling frazzled. It's just like everyone is depending on me to be there on time for me to be able to make sure their tickets are done properly, I mean I can't even leave my little office area to eat lunch because within 10 minutes they will call me back up to the front for something, and at first it was nice and I felt important but now I'm just ready for it to be over. I don't have Manager in my title and I'm not getting paid enough to work this hard. I'm just ready for all the weight to be lifted off my shoulders. I'm also not getting enough sleep, going to bed around 12am-1am and then waking up at 7:30am is defenitaly taking a toll on me, I've been getting bad headaches and I am just always exhausted. Hopefully on my two days off, in a row, I'll be able to relax and get some sleep. Hopefully I'll be getting my raise in 2 months which is what they promised me when I was interview. And I need to get my paperwork in for my insurance so I can take care of myself. Why is it that once you get a job that's pretty much all you talk about? I don't like talking about my job that much, yet I just wrote a whole paragraph about it.

Though I have a lot of things to do on Saturday I think this weekend will be very relaxing. I'll be getting a haircut, finally, since I haven't in about six months and it's driving me nuts. And then I'm taking my ring in to get cleaned and inspected. Probably doesn't sound like a fun, but I'm pretty excited about it. Then I've got to clean this apartment, top to bottom, it really needs a scrubbing. Sunday I will not be doing anything it's just going to be my day to rest and not worry about anything.

Something that has been really weighing on my mind is our wedding is coming up in less then 7 months. And what do I have done? Nothing. I've browsed and gotten and idea of what I'd like to be at my wedding but I haven't made any purchases towards the big day. Money is always going to be an issue, or at least for the next few years, so I can't use that as an excuse. I'm almost starting to feel as if I don't want to have a big wedding with everyone there. I don't want to worry about if they are going to show up or not and then feel crappy later on if they don't. Part of me wants to just elope but I think my parents would be upset if I did that. Or I was thinking of having a super small wedding and just having very close friends, my parents and hopefully brother, the mother-in-law and his brother and sister and that's all. And then just send out invitations to everyone else. Because honestly I could care less, right now, if anyone else was there. None of my family members keep in touch with me, which is pretty sad, and I'm sure it would be such a hassle for them to take time out of their busy lives to enjoy this moment with me. At the end of the day all I want is to be married to him.

Speaking of him, our one year anniversary is coming up pretty quickly and I'm excited. Which will also mean we are common law married, haha! Even on the bad days we have I still wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I still have no idea what to get him, guys are always so hard to shop for, but I'm sure I'll figure something out plus I've got to make up for not giving him a birthday present.

That's all for now, I guess, let's see if I actually use this damn thing.

Life Through My Eyes.
