Not A Great Day!

Hey Everyone!

Sorry I missed out on posting yesterday.

It wasn’t a great day for me. I was informed at work that I did not stay in the running for my boss’ position here at work. That stings even if you are mostly sure you wouldn’t get it anyway. I am ok with it, but it isn’t ever something you want to hear, ya know? I was told that I was impressive and that I made the decision harder than they had initially thought, which is a huge plus. I let them know that I was willing, able, and ready to move up. My boss said that he told the rest of the interviewers that I would be a great leader one day, whether it was here or somewhere else. He has always had my back and continues to even entering retirement shortly. The rest of my day, at work, fell flat. I didn’t care to do anything and rode it out.

When I got home I stayed in my work clothes because we had an electrician coming at 4:30-5:00pm. Well long story short he just…didn’t show up. Who does that? I know that plumbers and electricians have jobs that run over and everything. That is understandable, but to not call your next solidified appointment to let them know is a dick move. So I sat and waited until about six and then figured he wasn’t going to show for real. I still haven’t heard from him at all. I’m going to be calling a few other people today, I guess. I need some one to come in and do the damn work, plain and simple. If someone was willing to pay me to do my job, I’d do it. I’m not sure what is so hard about this concept. So we are still stuck with no answers, or solutions.

Work is doing slow today, as I am posting early. The one thing I am looking forward to is just after work. A few of us are meeting at a local bar in town to ‘send off’ our Human Resources Assistant, who is moving to Virginia. We are just going to have a drink or two and tell her good bye.

Tomorrow I have my Bio-metric screening at work, and will have to fast for 10-12 hours. They will check our vitals, as well as cholesterol. They then give us a print out of all the results so that we can take any action if needed. I will most likely need to take mine to my doctor, as my results have been high the last three years. :/

That is all for me today. I hope you all have a great Wednesday, and I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀

Good Surprise!

Hey Everyone!

Last night I tried working on my lights again, and boy let me tel you it was awful! I tried thinking about what needed connected and where. I tried putting the knob and tube wire that I had to the hot wire from the additional run, and it popped and flashed and I was done. Nope, a whole lot of nope after that. I’m at a loss, as to what to do. I hope to find someone to give me a hand that has a clue about what they are doing. I really don’t want to rip it all out and tear down a wall or my ceiling so I hope I find someone.

Today I got some good news about my current position here at work. I was bumped from a category ‘B’ position to a category ‘A’ position. That starts me off at the lowest rate for that and from there I will get reevaluated at 9 and 18 months from when it starts, to get me to the mid range. From there I can get to the top of my category by merit raise only. If I get to a point where I cap out before I get a new position I believe there is a way to change my job description and open up a new set of ranges.

I just realized today that Monday is Labor Day. I get a nice long weekend! I can use that for sure. I’m not sure about the weather yet, but if it is nice it would be a good idea to work on the cabin. We will probably get together with my family and have a cook out or something. We may just have a quite weekend at home, I’m ok with that too!

That is all for me today! I’ll be back again tomorrow, and after that I’ll see you again Tuesday! 😀 😀
