I totally agree with you about not being appreciated on the job - won't go into details but I do know where you are coming from.

As for Walmart, a discount on diapers is great, but just make sure your daughter doesn't know that you can also get a discount on lego!

I know it's easier said than done Suziquzie but don't take it personally. Unfortunatlly it just seems to be the way of the world today. A lot of folks have an "it's all about me" attitude and never even consider other people or their feelings into the equation. That's exactly why I started an at home internet business. Now I work for myself, when I want to, where I want to and don't have to deal with anyone else!

Thumbs down no power for thirteen hours

yesterday it was very hot here, as it is now. about 2 pm power went out. temp was 102.

what a bummer, you really can't do much with no power. took shower and cut out a chair cover. when it got dark , lit many candles. fortunately i have a little light for reading that runs on batteries. fits around my neck. my large flashlight was dead of course and no new batteries for it.

and of course it was getting hotter by the minute in the house. i opened every window. i then worried my cat might lean against the screen and fall out.

no! he decides to catch his tail on fire. had a lit candle in his path to window sill lucky for him it went out almost instantly. smelled awful but little damage done.

hard to sleep when it is so hot. power came back on about 3am.

all and all a real bummer. we forget how lucky we are to even have power and all the things that run on it.

babe

haha no pds I dont work with her, we have the same job. She bakes mon-fri I do sat-sun. Once in a great while they let me come in to help her during a weekday, we have alot of fun!
I really love the job, but it's starting to be not worth the heartache, maybe I shouldn't be so sensitive I suppose.

babe I hope you get to keep your power awhile!

It's hard not to be sensitive when you KNOW you are doing a good job and working your butt off and taking time away from your family...
