Scheduling has been pretty whackadoodle around here. I have been working both jobs, one of which is pretty slow now (which isn’t a bad thing with learning new stuff). The work has been sporadic with both jobs, so I decided to work from the new house so that when it was slow I could do work during the day rather than coming back at night because Thursday night is opening night of FOOTBALL SEASON!!
I hope the Seahawks go down hard tonight. I am still smarting about the Super Bowl… Time to start the football picks for the year as well. John and I also challenge his sister Sarah and her partner. Last year I was the champion (with a little trophy to boot). I hope to reign supreme again this year 😀
I have to admit I am not sold on this second job, actually. There is something about it that makes me uncomfortable, and I think it is the fact that they expect you to work whenever the work is there, even if that means it doesn’t come in until 11 pm at night. I can’t wait around all day checking for work. They had a mandatory call in meeting that was announced at 10 pm on Friday night. It was announced by email as it was happening. Sorry, but I am not logged into my work email at 10 pm on a Friday night, especially if I have been working all day! It’s the owner that is like that. Everyone else has been super, super nice to work with. So, I am not making any moves to leave the older job for the new one at this time. I am very lucky I can do both for now and will just keep evaluating. Who knows, they may not want to keep me.
Anyhoo, during work spurts, I have been painting cabinets:
Cleaning, priming and painting. These are half the doors. The others are in the dining room and another room! Good thing we don’t have furniture yet. John has his business set up and is running it now and after a few hiccups of getting used to a new spot, it seems to be going well. It’s weird having him gone during the day, although I was with him working today.
Pixie is not happy with how much we have been gone:
This was how she was looking at us when we got home tonight. I hope she adjusts once we move. She seems a little out of sorts now because the rugs are gone and we are away a lot. Plus it’s hot and she is so fluffy that she must be terribly hot.
I am rooting for the Packers tonight!
