On Quandaries: Adulting is Hard · 5:24am Mar 29th, 2017

So... At my work site, my supervisor could put me on overnights (10p-6a/11p-7a) at the truck gate, or on second shift (3p-11p) at one of the two employee gates...

Pro for Employee gate shift: I get to potentially have sleep-snuggles with Fiancé.
Con for Employee gate shift: Standing for hours on end; physical agony.

Pro for Truck gate shift: Work I'm good at; time with my supervisor (who is AWESOME); active

Life, Shenanigans and All the Rest · 1:32am Dec 12th, 2016

Well... the 13th of November came and went with little fanfare... I no longer work at the steel mill, and now I'm doing odd shifts at UPS shipping facilities or at another site while doing Anti-Piracy work in theaters for advance screenings of movies...

This has resulted in me seeing several movies... Obviously I can't say much, but here's what I can say:
*Passengers - An okay movie
*Sing - Cute and funny. Would recommend.

Ahead of schedule - Continued Shenaniganery of Employment · 12:40am Nov 3rd, 2016

So why, you might be asking yourself right now, is Witchy already ranting about work? She's not scheduled to work until 10pm tonight (Wednesday), right?

Well, dear reader, you would be correct. I was not scheduled to start until 10pm...

The Special Hell Known As "Employment" · 7:20am Oct 11th, 2016

So...
Today...
Today has not been kind...

Today, I was awake at 3pm... and yes... I had to be up at 3pm, which is highly unfortunate, given what I had to be up for.

Boss-MomCord is a benevolent dictator in general... but due to Newbie doing a cock-up with his availability, she was unable to give me both Monday and Thursday off this week...

"Why is having Monday and Thursday off so important, Witchy?" you may be asking right now... And, my dear readers, I shall tell you...

Moar adventures in Employment - Read: Dealing with Jerk Coworker · 9:29am Sep 14th, 2016

I was gonna try to keep this clean, but since I can make no promises of the sort, please be advised that there's significant obscenity when I'm describing how many ways I got the shaft and how much of an absolute prick this coworker is... The best I can do is put it under a cut...

Good news -- Fiancé had a phone interview that went REALLY well.

Bad news -- His prospective schedule is gonna mean that on Monday mornings, I'm gonna have to blast home as soon as possible so that he can get to work.

Coping with a B0rken Husband: Part the Second · 4:27am Jun 29th, 2018

Has it been 7 weeks already?

Feels like forever, or maybe only a week or two... not sure... But in any case...
Hubby's doing much better now. He's gotten so I don't have to do everything for him, and he's even walking!!! (Though usually he needs at least a cane or a walker for support.)

Out of the Frying Pan and Into the Fire -- Witchy's Continuing Adventures in Employment · 7:58pm Oct 23rd, 2016

So... Ali ditzed, didn't look at the schedule, and missed her Friday morning shift, forcing MomCord to cover it... :unsuresweetie: Fffuuuuuuuuu--
And then she had her car towed so she wasn't able to work her Saturday morning shift either, making Snowfire cover it... :trixieshiftright: Fffuuuuuuuuu--
And she couldn't get her car out yesterday, so Snowfire couldn't just do a shift-trade with Ali so she'd have a day off and not go into overtime... :ajbemused: Fffuuuuuuuuu--

I'm officially terrible at this... · 3:44am Oct 8th, 2018

So it's been over three months. Let's see if I can briefly recap this...

Good Things:

  • Hubby's no longer in Physical Therapy and he's walking without even a cane for assistance!
  • I still have a job.
  • Hubby has a better job, still within his company, that pays him more, and also gives us days off together.
  • We have a second car! We've named her Hotaru and she's amazing. It's been loads of interesting to learn how to drive a manual transmission.
