Hello everyone...
Im off to work in a little bit..(12-6)
But that will be my last 6hr day for the next week..
I am very unhappy to say they cut my hrs..AGAIN this week..I was told Id average 35-37 hrs..a week..
Well as soon as they took me off of training,, My hrs are less and less...
Last week it was 25, and this next week they only gave me 19hrs.... four 4hr days, and one 3 1/2 hr day....
and really rotten times...like 3-7,..none in the morning.
That works out to 28.00 a day...

Ann,
You baking and food prep sounds yummy!..
and Im so glad you got to spend time with the sisters again!
Tell them I said Hi!
Hey did you get to see the pictures of Julia in prom gear?..My little DGD is growing up!...NO...Grown up!...
But she looked so pretty in her gown!

Robin,
So good to hear you are using the trailer...I wish I had time to use ours...
Im sure we should be able to take it out a few times befor the end of summer...I just have to find a regular day job...FULL TIME..and then I have my weekends back and a little extra money to boot!

Well I better get moving...
I hope you all have a good day!

DU, PD, TW, SA, Kim..... HEY!

TTFN

Betsy! I know how hours cut makes a difference. At MAX, I only work 9 hours a week, down from 12! But, I'm grateful for it.

MATT OFFICIALLY GRADUATED TONIGHT! Doesn't stop the loan payments but, he's very happy. Also, according to Matt, Chevy Chase, THE Chevy Chase (SNL, Caddyshack, etc.), was at his graduation tonight. I missed him I guess. The person I DID notice was a local TV news guy and, thinking 'news', I thought the guy was there for 'news'. Turns out he's a parent of someone Matt graduated with! Many of my apprehensions about this brand-new school (while still apparent) were subsided tonight when I saw that a local news guy had his own son in this non-degree, fast-track program. It was a nice night. I even got along with my ex with no problem, talking, kidding, joking, taking pics, etc. About time Matt's parents acted like grown-ups.

Left the graduation reception just to drop off Kelly at school at about 9:30pm (4 hours after the start) for a lock-in Girl Scout overnighter. And Matt, who was also going to pull an all-nighter , ended up going to eat (and have 2 drinks) with his Dad. I can't complain. He's home now, he's a GREAT young man, and he didn't drive.

Flashpoint Academy now has it's FIRST, INAUGURAL Graduating class, under it's belt!! Thanks for indulging me!

Such great news Kim!!!!

Congrats again to Matt

I am popping in to say Hi

John is working, I am doing some reading for homework -Tartuffe for intro to theatre.

I watched the tv production video our teacher made from our finals, ours actually turned out good. I have two full videos done now-one of these days I will put them up on youtube. My first one was 3 minutes longer than youtube will accept or else it would already be up there~

Good luck Betsy - if I have learned anything being out of work it is how to be patient and optimistic while looking~

Love you guys-Mean it!

Do I work for the ONLY company who ADDED hours to our weeks? Starting Monday we have to work a 45 hour week, for no extra $

Just got done seeing UP! in 3D.

Not bad, but not awesome. I felt the glasses made it look more High Def than anything, I mean it had a few moments that sprunge out but nothing blatent. The Pixar crew did a fantastic job. Looked stunning! Kids liked it. All that matters.

Actually really excited to see a trailer for Toy Story 3 in 3D.

That 5 mins looked amazing!

Counting the days...........

I can't even imagine the you feel DU but, I have to say you MUST BE INVALUABLE to them and, any job, imho, IS a job MANY don't have these days, and wish they did.

Hiya Threadkillers!

I just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you. DH & I are having a quiet day - reading books & newspaper.

Well, we've added another thing for our schedule - a good thing, too! We've got the wedding that I'm cooking for that's June 27th, the Library Grand Opening that I'm making a cake for on July 1st, the Sister's getting together on July 9th and our son from California is coming on July 14th for a week!

We also changed our Christmas trip. We're not going camping on Christmas (still camping Thanksgiving), but we've decided to spend it at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando. No disney trip - DH isn't a fan, but we'll relax, read, swim and probably hit the spa. We got a good deal on a premium room that is IN the atrium with a private balcony so we can sit on the balcony and see all the Christmas decorations inside without leaving our room. We're excited!

Sleepingaurora - your strawberry trip sound wonderful. I just love stuff like that!

Kim - congrats again to Matt. His graduation sounds like it was really something!

DU - keep your nose to the grindstone!

DP - I hope your new schedule works out.

BMS - I've not seen UP yet. It sounds good, but not one I've GOT to rush out & see. I think I'm going to see "Angels & Demons" on Monday....my last day of no cooking!

Hi Sewer - I NEED some sneakers! I wear them when I'm on my feet cooking and mine have lost their bounce! However, I'm not a clothes or shoe shopper, so when I go, I'll buy a few pair.....that's WHEN I go!

Hey TW - I looked up Tartuffe and it sounds like a good play....it also sounds like something you could eat - doesn't it?!

Good morning to all the other threadkillers! I hope ya'll have a GREAT day!
