Month: August 2016

The Weekend!

I am savoring my weekend, this has been a long work week for me, a long training work week.  The training is over, passed the test, now will be out on the floor for another two weeks, 4 hours on the phones, and 4 hours in the class for Quality, I really haven’t made it, made it, but I am moving towards it all.  That last test was a toughie, but in all 17 people made it through.  We started out with 22, and ended with 17.  I really do hope I like it better than that last job.  I know I feel a lot different, I still get the anxiety, but it is not anywhere like the last job.  To be continued…

Today the rents and I went down to Burnett TX, there is this little eatery there called Cafe 2300, the food is fantastic, and the wait staff and owners are delightful.  The place is up for sale, it has been since October, looks like the owners want to sell to be closer to family in Dallas TX.  Sad for us the patrons when it happens, but happy for the owners.  Just hope we have more time spent there before it happens.

It is almost the end of August, can you believe it, the months  are moving on.  Next stop September!

Constant cravings…

Well today anyway.  Today the weather is cloudy, rainy, humid and calm.  Yes, it is a pretty quiet Saturday.  You know the kind that makes it feel as though it is not even a Saturday.  So the rents and I took a little trip to Brady, TX.  Just to get some barbecue.  Sure there are tons of bbq places in austin, heck I really do need to get some, and do a comparison.  Anyway,  the ride was great and the bbq sandwhich was delicious.

If you happen to stop in Brady, Texas this place will not dissapoint.

Training Days…

Well today is day three of three weeks of training.  Hoping to pass tests next week.  The trainer just seems less than thrilled, basically the class is boring.  There are 21 of us stuck in a tiny cramped class,  it is a snoozefest.  Everything is done on a projector screen, I take notes by hand, she does not clue you in on what important notes should be taken.  You are just figuring it out as you go along.  The class participation is meh…  I just pray I soak it all in.  Stay tuned.

Between getting home around 6 and taking in the Olympics, that has been my week.  Then dinner, and off to bed to start it all over again.  I am glad that the training schedule has the weekends off.  I can do something this Saturday, probably  go to the mall.  Speaking of Olympics, did anyone catch those swimming finals oh yeah!  They worked it out. Well, time to get this day started, gotta keep hydrated, it’s hot out there y’all.  Enjoy your day.

Today was a good day…

First day of the new job.  Went well, no first day jitters for me, probably because I was just way ready to get back at it.  Bills wait for no one.  I feel confident that I will do well, more like I am praying I will do good.  Stay tuned!  Today was not as hot as yesterday and the day before, I can deal with it today.  I am returning to waking up at 5 am to get the 6 am bus.  Since this job is far south, out near the airport area.  I am going to do my best, try to get a whole year in if possible, then try for something a little more closer to the north.  

Life has been chugging on for me.  Trying to keep cool in the heat of summer.  Especially since I hate staying indoors, when I can be out exploring, but for my health, I try to limit the outdoors to early mornings.  

Gonna try to get to the pecan street festival next month.  Plus going to start attending church again.  Stay tuned as well.  Well this is it for now, until the next time.  Enjoy!
