My birthday was pretty much a bust, due to circumstances beyond anyone's control. It looks as though things may happen this coming weekend instead though. Also probably going to visit my mom tomorrow which will be nice too. I miss my mom.

We had a huge winter storm Sunday night and Monday. School was closed and my shift at work got cancelled, so everyone got a snow day on Monday. We ended up with over a foot of snow and temps are below freezing for at least the next week. My autumn went away *sad face*

I have to remember to ask what days I have off for Thanksgiving. It's only two weeks away. And then it's December already. Oy.

First week of second shift went ok considering almost everyone else is a new hire and still learning.

My dad had minor back surgery two days ago. He seems to be recovering ok from what little I've been told.

It's my birthday tomorrow and plans are all falling through.

I'm not having a great day and I'm really depressed.

I know I'm behind on comments and such. Work takes a lot out of me. But it's getting better; I got a QA job. I've been training most of this week to be the second shift Lot Tracker, meaning I keep records of how much of what product goes to which production line, when some comes back, how much gets used, when we change products, how much of the orders we fill, all kinds of things like that. Most of it became self-explanatory once I knew what I was looking at. There is some math involved, but I have a calculator, and I'm getting better at executing the proper formulas and knowing when to apply them.

I start third shift, 3:30-11:30pm, on Monday. I won't be entirely on my own at first, but the goal is to get there. I also have a desk and a stool to sit on. So I'm in less pain after work, though I still stand a lot and so my feet hurt and my legs and hips still get stiff and sore. And I'm right under a climate control unit that blows cold air at me so I end up cold a lot, especially my hands. But to not be in so much pain, I'll deal with all of that.

The most stressful times so far are first thing in the morning when EVERYTHING for all three lines is coming out AND I'm trying to prep my station at the same time, and occasionally there will be a flurry of activity at other times especially when there's an order change on one of the lines. But some of that will be alleviated once I move to second shift, because 1.) I won't have to "open" and do the prep work, 2.) I'm told we'll only run one line instead of all three, and 3.) I'm also told there may be no order changes at all, maybe one at the most. So things I'm learning that seem stressful now, may not even be a factor anymore next week. So all seems well.

In other brief news, we're going to my mom's tomorrow to trick-or-treat in her neighborhood, and then will spend the night there. I may also stay Saturday night, I haven't decided yet.

But I should get to bed. I have a meeting in the morning. Thanks for reading.

Left work an hour early yesterday because my back pain was interfering with my ability to do my job. So I worked eight hours instead of nine. Today I was there for nine but worked bread prep instead of on the line. I'm still really stiff and sore. Ok more than sore. But my family needs me to work. So I have to suck it up and tough it out. They're adding a second shift and have a QA (Quality Assurance) position available. I'm talking to HR about it tomorrow.

Guess that's it.

Working nine-hour days sucks.

First day of work was long, cold, and hard on my muscles, but overall uneventful. Hopefully today won't be nine hours again and my body will adjust quickly to the new strain. I'm not really sore this morning so I think that's a good sign. Bringing Tylenol just in case.

One of the downsides of my husband going camping all week is that allllll the housework and childcare and ogodno cooking fall to me. I hate washing dishes, I lack confidence in my cooking abilities, house cleaning makes me incredibly stressed and anxious, the kids can be frustrating and overwhelming...*gggggrrrrroooooaaaaannnnn*

My husband left yesterday for a week long camping trip. My kids are on their way to school. Mom is coming to visit at some point today. I'm still wondering what I'm going to do with myself all week.

DQ hasn't even called. It's been almost a week. Guess temp agency is my only option.

Home from the trip. I'll talk about it tomorrow. But I am so looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight.

After a hiatus due to offline life, I’m posting to sorgae_tarot again. The Majors have all been posted, two out of four suits for the Minor Arcana are finished, and the end of the Keriosak (Cups/West/Water) suit is closing in! Feel free to visit sorgae_tarot to catch up, and then friend the comm to see the rest of the deck :)

I don't normally repost things from tumblr, but this seemed important. If you're on tumblr and have triggers, here are tags to avoid and why.

Apartment is 90% moved. Trailer is filled with boxes. If timing with weather is on our side we could sleep there tomorrow night. I need a shower and sleep.

Hi everybody. In honor of World Tarot Day today, I've set up my Sorgae Tarot tumblr to post the 11 remaining Major Arcana cards once an hour, starting at noon CDT (or GMT -6). The posts are also tagged "world tarot day," so track the tag or follow the blog to play along today :)

In a holding pattern about the move since we can't get any materials or windows or anything until we can get in there to measure. Hopefully soon.

My mom got me flowers and made me a card for Mother's Day. I'm too lazy to take pictures now, but I will soon probably.

That's all the news that's fit to print, folks.
