I had to change the garbage at work twice today, and both times had the bag leak.  The first it got all over my pants-not cool-the second a puddle on the carpet.  Thankfully not too bad though.
Got my first tip though, and it was cloudy enough to not be too hot.
My photo's haven't arrived! So I can't submit them unless they somehow get here in the next twenty minutes or so...

Watched Now You See Me last night.  Cool twist at the end.
School's having the annual block party today, so I meandered there for an hour after getting my paycheck from the video job.
Got to take my family-save the sister who went on wednesday-to breakfast this morning.  They enjoyed it.
Trying to think of lunch...

Thursday, August 28, 2014


Well, my photo's for the fair have been sent, though I can't tell when they are expected to arrive.  My mom decided to enter a painting as well, so I can drop both off when mine get here.
I fear my sister's-not living at home-financial situation has taken a bad turn...
I get my paycheck from school tomorrow.

My sister and I were able to do breakfast this morning, and we saw a little one crawling away from their mother.  She kept watching us and wandering-as far as she could crawl without running into someone-before the mother finally managed to catch her.
Then I get home from work and my two nieces are here.  The oldest was leaning over the piano to try and reach me through the window.  Of course my youngest brother tried to get me to take the youngest niece from him while I was still in my uniform.
But I still had fun with them before they had to leave.

Tuesday, August 26, 2014


That didn't go so well.  My sister wanted to have breakfast before I had to work this morning, but she fell asleep and I got distracted.
Got off late from work as well, but not because it was busy.
Hopefully will have my photo's in time for the fair...

Not Quite

We actually got a bit of hail while I was finishing up at work today.  Didn't last long though.  Grabbed my mom some bread with a sandwich for my lunch before heading home.
Have to skip taking classes this semester...

Saturday, August 23, 2014


Didn't expect to see that...A little kid threw up while waiting in line at work today.  Had to clean that up, then my coworkers did the detail sanitation for it.  Not fun at all.
Busy though, which is a good thing, but kind of a sporadic busy.  Got called in an hour early due to that.  Not going to complain about it.

Friday, August 22, 2014


One of those days where things seem to go wrong.  Nothing big, just events like dropping liquids-I and a coworker did that, theirs was a smoothie that went everywhere mine a syrup container which thankfully didn't do too much.  Or running into someone carrying something, like me with a kid and a full glass of water-only a bit spilled on me and them, none on the floor-or me and a coworker trying to get an order out.  Nothing spilled there though.
No major scenes though.  Raining after I left so I had to sprint inside when I got home.
What to do about school...

Wet and Hot.

Well, not so much hot today.  But certainly wet.  A coworker asked me to cover their shift tomorrow, not that I have anything better to do.
I guess my failure in math means I can't even get student loans for this semester.  Grrr.  Maybe I should take a break from it...

Our tomato's are really starting to produce.  Picked a bucketful this morning.  Really wish our cantaloupe would ripen, as we've finally got some big ones without the deer taking bites out of them.  Corn is getting there as well, and the cantaloupe is threatening to swallow the volunteer potatoes nearby.
Got the last grade-all B's save math(AARGH). so I've still got a good G.P.A.

Communication Error..

My sister wanted to go see Guardians of the Galaxy today, but failed to communicate time before I went to work this morning.  So she's at the theater with my cousins and I'm at home having got off work too late to join them.
Got my math score-have to take the class yet again...

Not Sure About That...

Lost my video job today, as my boss said I wasn't improving fast enough.  Given today was the fourth time I've filmed in the past two weeks, I don't know how they expect me to be at the same level as my coworkers.  But I was leaving friday anyway, so no big loss there.
Had my first meeting at Kneaders, and got paid for it too.  Hot today, so my sister and I are planning to use the new pool.

Saturday, August 16, 2014


May have to talk with my Manager at Kneaders about school, if I can afford this semester at all that is.  Got sunburned at work again today, but not as bad.  Just a little on my right bicep.
Only one new grade: a B+ in my modern american lit class.

Friday, August 15, 2014


Not sure I can do classes this semester...Trying to work them in around my work schedule for the moment.  May have to just grab a few and leave the rest.  Even then I may not be able to afford it.
Got to film today, and my boss said I was doing well.
Got off lat from Kneaders though, very busy lunch today.
What can I make for dinner that is portable...

Thursday, August 14, 2014


Humid again.  Work was a bit boring as I was just helping today.  As usual.
Got things work out as best I could though.
Still no word on grades though!

Wednesday, August 13, 2014


Got to see the newly refinished temple yesterday, with quite a few cool cloud pictures to go with it.
Also saw the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles last night with my sister.
Once again it was cloudy and raining last night, but humid today.
Work went okay other than one or two mistakes and having to go in an hour later due to a slow period.

Tuesday, August 12, 2014


Burned my neck and scalp worse than I thought yesterday.  But was able to help at video today.  Helped that it was overcast.
Work at Kneaders was normal, though we had some air force air show men come in rather hungry right before I got off.
Heard a funny comment on the walkie talkies the other day I'd nearly forgot about.  I was on the roof ready to film and we were checking the walkies before the start of practice.  Then we hear "Hey guys, thanks for letting me know I'd left my radio on".  My fellow filmer picked up theirs and said "who is this?".  All we got back was "I'm heading up the canyon and didn't realize my radio was still on.  Thanks."  Nothing after that.
Done with finals but anxiously waiting for grades now...

Not. Fun.

Get to work today only to find out that because we'd moved the scissor lift and boom camera to the practice field on saturday the landscaping crew was now mad at us.  Mainly because the scissor lift has tough wheels and dug into the grass quite a bit so they had to fix it.
we tried to remedy the issue by using plywood boards to protect the grass-after we got yelled at twice-and then the stupid boom camera wouldn't work after morning practice!  Gah!
Didn't help that it was very hot and I got a bit sunburned-livable though-because we did a lot of moving around outside-can't help where the football team practices.
Then I found out I'd have to forgo any student loans in order to qualify for works study, and even then its a maybe.  Grr...
Got my math final done, but the calculator I was using didn't want to do the log function so I may have got some wrong...

That was a Long Day...

Had to get to work by 8 at school, then ran to Kneaders for my shift, and then back to school for a half hour more where I took pictures of the football team for the highlight video-which I'm now focused on there, just haven't done much with yet-using my supervisor's cell phone camera and I think I surprised them.
Just the math final left...

Friday, August 8, 2014


but cool.  My mom wants me to bring home bread from work soon.  Of course this was after she came by with my sister and oldest niece while I was working and my sister 'harassed' me during their stay.
Final is done for english, just have one math quiz and the final next week.  Yay...til fall starts...

Thursday, August 7, 2014


Had a lightning storm after I went to bed last night, which made it hard to get to sleep.  Had a big one actually startle me awake.
So far work's going well, Kneaders I only messed up twice-that needed fixing-and they were okay.
Still need that paper for english due today...

Wednesday, August 6, 2014


I'm trying to figure out why my modern american literature teacher brought up the autobiography and other writings of Benjamin Franklin.  We're supposed to cover 1900-1950 period writings.  But I guess they thought it counted.
Got my draft back with comments, so I can work on it for tomorrow.
Just have math homework before the final next week after tomorrow.
And more work today...

Some Good, Some Bad.

Got my first paycheck from Kneaders, which helps a lot.  Plus I think I managed to avoid any mistakes at work today.
But then I messed up big yesterday with video, so I couldn't do much today-which was okay given i had to leave for Kneaders anyway.  Still Grrrr...
Second to last day of english class, and I'm one book short on the reading.  Trying to get them done before the test thursday...
Stormy now.

Not Good...

The rain last night cooled things off a bit for my first day of video stuff, but the sun came out enough to make it uncomfortable.  Plus standing on a roof six stories off the ground doesn't help.  Raining now...
Couldn't sleep last night, and apparently none of my coworkers did either. Grr...

Saturday, August 2, 2014


Was doing my typical saturday cleaning and had to vacuum around my mom  she told me I was doing a wonderful job while moving so I could get where she sat, and to try and get a grin I asked Would you like me to vacuum you feet as well?
Was not expecting the bark of laughter, but she declined anyway.
Of course this was after I got home from work.  Was very tired this morning too, which did not help.
Did much better on that math test, but still not where I'd like it to be.

Friday, August 1, 2014


Trying to work two work schedules together is not fun.  My food place one has me working most days for the next two weeks, and my video one wants me to work the same times.  I can't do both. Sheesh.
Exam two score is up, so I can go see what I got.  Really hope its better than one.
