Where have I been and what have I been doing?


Raising a puppy takes a lot of attention and I even have a doting husband doing a lot of the work. She is so much fun. We all agree bringing her into our family was one of the best things we've done.

Raising Roxie and selling Christmas merchandise in stores. Today I had to listen to a grumpy Safeway manager in my lesser store that I could take or leave. The drill is: Safeway Corporate approves orders for the store, my company sends it, I put it out, local Safeway manager pisses and moans about too much product on the store. "Corporate doesn't run this store" he huffily says as he walks away. "Hey, this is between you and your boss, little man," I say. "Go complain to them, not me."
Well, I say it in my head. I had heard this manager was anti-social and he appears to be that way. His female counterpart just took the time to say it's always that way, the lack of communication is commonplace.

I'm starting to see the end of this job on the horizon. Dear Husband and #1 Son are going to be going off for training this Christmas for the second year in a row, leaving #2 Son and me behind to find some trouble to get into. Soon, I plan to be the one going off since it's about my turn.

Happy Solstice is coming up!
