I could listen to 2Cellos playing Benedictus for hours (well, maybe not, I'd probably fall asleep at some point) because it relaxes me totally.

Work is becoming more and more stressful. And I don't look for it to become any better.

I ate fried chicken from the deli, finished closing, got home and threw up. Sick doesn't even cover it. And I'm never eating any of that food again, it's not the first time I've been sick on wm food, but it's definitely the last! Even now I'm not feeling too well. And tomorrow I will be telling them that our food made me sick.

And it's too hot. 100+ degrees is just too much. There is a chance of rain tomorrow... But every time they say that, it goes north and south of us.

Makes me want to move to the west coast -- Oregon or Washington. At least they're cooler.

Because it's so dry (and fairly warm) everyone who still had field work has been out and about and are also burning out ditches and waterways and now I have a headache from hell. The husband doesn't smell it, all I could think each time I woke up last night was, I wish it would rain and get all this crap out of the air.

I also had my annual review at work yesterday. Whoopie. Same ol', same ol'. Although, I did entertain my zsm when I said that I was trying for being more honest for the year (actually, he put his hand over his eyes and said, "Oh God." snicker) Took 45 min to go through all the bs that the asst mang wanted to talk about (10-15 for the eval) but since I was doing the whole honest thing, I could say stuff and not get in trouble for it! So, come Feb 20, I get a whole 40 cent raise, 'cause the only way anyone is getting 60 cents is if they save the life of the store mang. I did make the comment later to co-workers that I had gotten a 60 cent once, but it was because my asst mang was scared of me. (Really! She had the co-mang of the store give me the eval while she sat there and smiled like she was afraid I was going to attack. I kept waiting for her to say something, she never did. Very weird.)

It's still warm here (comparatively) at 35.2 and it's not supposed to get too cold (or snowy) anytime soon. Doing wonders for the heating bill! We could use some rain, but... can't have everything.

I get to go to Iowa this weekend! And it's all because my stupid work gave me 3 days off in the next schedule and then I was working 9-6 on Fri. and 2-11 on Mon. So the husband could pick me up from work and then on Mon drop me off.

But then, something strange happened. We were looking at the schedule, and I find that I was now working 2-11 on Fri.

I threw a hissy fit.

I check my schedule on Sat from my home computer, and stupid work has us scheduled 3 weeks in advance. And when I checked my calendar, I had written 9-6 on that Fri. So, sometime after Sat, they changed the schedule, but neglected to let me know, or ask if it was all right!

And yes, I did get it all fixed, I switched with one of the deli workers, and even get to leave a little earlier since she works 8-5 but still.

WM is really driving me nuts! And the little mini-vacation will be well worth it!

I hate it. I hate it. I hate it.

Really. It's cold (and further north, they're saying frost! Too Damn Early!)

But the parents have power again, and my mom figured out that the hot water heater was still working so they did have hot water, then got up early on Sun (she could hear the electric people working down the block), cleaned the frig, and had everything ready when the power came back on at noon.

And work sucks. Really really sucks. One of my co-workers threw a hissy-fit today, she was working the slicer end and I was running freight, the rest were doing who knows what and she felt that no one was willing to help her, so there was a lot of banging and stomping around. After a trip to the office (and lots of yelling, I guess), she came back and is in tears and apologizes to me (not sure why) and then weeps all over me! Why, I ask, why does this ALWAYS happen to ME! The rest of the deli was like, oh good, she's not weeping over us! Crap. Anyway, I told her that everyone has bad days and to just breathe and be calm. (Or is that breath, I get them confused.) She came from a Florida wm and now wishes she hadn't left, feels that wm here promised her things that she hasn't gotten. And no, I don't know what, nor do I really want to know. Too much drama.

So, just another day in the life. I'm going to try and work on some of my fic as well as work on kracken's book!

So, the son is off to Ft Lewis in Washington for training (with his entire unit) before going back to Iraq. yea. And he and the wife are now divorced. And Tues. night, when he was still here and Wendi brought Allie up to see him one more time, she seemed to be much more calm and wasn't screaming hysterically at him, so it's an improvement. And even though she didn't come out to the house after Christmas, I had bought her gifts and sent them back with Chris. And she was surprised that I had done so. I almost said, but you are the mother of my grandchild, why wouldn't I give you gifts? But Allie isn't taking this whole going overseas too well, she's old enough now that she understands that Daddy won't be coming to see her every whip-stitch. But as soon as Chris has his first couple of checks, he's buying her a computer with video so that they can talk. Technology can be wonderful.

And the daughter will be coming back from Afghanistan in Feb sometime and then gets to come home for leave. So we can have more Christmas! She's trying to decide how she's going to get her extra stuff home, she'll carry her computer and Kindle, but she also has dvd's and such that she bought so... I told her to send it to Tim (same base) in CA, and if she does it late enough, she'd be there about the time it got there.

And work has been it's normal sucky self. Our lead went to a different job and one of our co-workers moved to Indianapolis and a much better job and then another one fell and broke her ankle and will be out for 6-8 weeks. And management is always farming out everyone who works in the deli (redheaded workers of wm) and so we are continually shorthanded. And next week, they still haven't given us back hours. So, it will be interesting to see how everything goes. Personally, I'll be going home when it says my shift is over, whether the jobs are done or not. They aren't really paying me to think, here.

My brother. *sigh* He is doing somewhat better. Still in the cities, going through rehab (for his leg) and taking to the nutritionist about his eating habits (or lack thereof). Tues. he has another tumor in his head removed (gamma knife, so not invasive) and they are hoping that this will help with his tasting things. That's been his complaint, that nothing tastes right. But then there is the surgery to get rid of the tumor on his adrenal gland. That will be... whenever. So, my parents are going over with a cousin to see him and Aundie this weekend. It's just a waiting game. At least his job is supportive, the guys are always showing up and visiting with him and his boss has told him that if he wants to come to work and just sit there, he'll sign his check. Tim could always to the paperwork and be the consultant, he is very good at his job. And in June, he will have worked for the Willmar Police Dept for 30 years. Pretty amazing.

Well, now that I've vented (and cried a bit) I should get busy and finish up cleaning from Christmas. And vacuum, I really need to vacuum.

So, I was at work and one of my co-workers came over to me after cutting some meat and cheese for some customer and said, "Have to love the customers."

Do NOT ask where the following came from, I have no idea.

I then said, "Yep, gonna love them and hug them and kill them with bombs."

After everyone picked themselves up off of the floor from laughing hysterically, Matt looked at me and said, "That is just so wrong."

As I said, I have NO idea where that came from, but I used it several other times that night.

I think I need a vacation. Or something.

I was going to just put a blank page up here, and then another post about how if I did post, and the job found out, I could be, at the least, pulled into the office and have yet another 'buddy talk'.

Then I decided, screw it. Work is just not worth the time or effort it would take to complain (again) about everything that could and can go wrong, and the 'wonderful' people that I work with.

Because, you know, I just LOVE my job. Really.

And, on another note, if everyone out there could keep my cousin (well, my Mom's cousin, I always forget how that all works, but he's not that much older than I am!) in your prayers and thoughts, he has throat cancer and is starting the whole chemo/radiation and hopefully it will all turn out well.

And this makes three in my family. I'm really hoping that that will be all for awhile. I'm too tired to worry.

And now the daughter will be home from the 31st until the 17th!

So, I'm definitely making wm change my schedule for this weekend so that I can go pick her up at 11 at night... Since right now I'm supposed to work until then! Stupid wm...

Just a note, I'm really tired of people who expect something for nothing. (Can you tell I work in retail?) And are grumpy when they don't get what they want, even when they don't deserve it.

And one of my co-workers decided to turn out the lights in the freezer today (twice!) while I was in there. And the second time, she leaned against the door so that Kim couldn't even open the door. And then she was amazed that I was PISSED at her. But I'm claustrophobic and it wasn't funny, even a little bit.

So, now my heart hurts (yes, it sent me into a stress attack) and I really need to get to bed but...

So, I read the next chapter of Yanagi-wa's Runaway Wizard and am listening to John Denver's Calypso.

Sooner or later, I'll breath normally.

Dammit.

It's been a really nice week off.

Went up north, saw the parents and brother and sister-in-law. And since my hubby went, my dad was really happy.

And today I cooked (again) and then watched Star Wars (been going through all of them, trying to remember what was changed from the original) and finished the night off with Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust. And now I have part of the soundtrack running through my head, and of course iTunes does not have it. Stupid thing.

But the strange thing is, I swear part of the music was used in one of the last movies I saw at work (the one where the guy is a modern day Noah, no, I don't know or care what the name of the movie is, I like my movies a touch more... ah... violent) but... really, I was talking to someone and the ending credits were rolling and I turned and looked at it and said, 'Vampire Hunter D!' Yes, I did.

So, now it's going to snow and be cold and I have to go back to work.

Bah. Humbug.
