Just a few days after Holly came into our family I re-started my job at McDonald's and it's been craziness ever since. First of all, Holly is doing awesome! She has really come out of her shell over the past few weeks and she's gotten more confident to come out of my bedroom and be around all of us without freaking out. She's getting along really well with the kids to where she lets them pet her and play with her. ^_^ And, as I sit here typing this, she is snoozing quite contentedly next to me on the couch (oop! Now she's snuggled on my chest). <3<3<3<3<3 Every day she's exhibited more and more of the personality traits from her last life while still maintaining her different individuality in this life and I could seriously burst with how happy I am to have her with me again!
For instance, like Tippy, she'll come trotting right to me when I call her name and she'll be meowing all the way. That was one of my most favorite things about Tippy's personality when she was in that life. I love my little kitty friend so much!
Let's see....what else? I turned 30 a couple weeks ago (oh joy!). I'm not as bothered by it as I thought I would be, but just wait til I start getting significantly closer to 40. We'll see how much bitching I do about that milestone! LoL!
Regarding my job, I can't say I'm overly thrilled about it, but I'm still thankful for it. I'm thankful for the extra money and I still manage to enjoy it most of the time. There's just the occasional rough patch where I'm having to deal with bitchy co-workers, which I find to be worse than rude customers. Hell, just the other day I was working the morning shift and this one chick was just......well, lemme put it this way: I was THIS CLOSE to asking her if she needed to change her tampon. I'm still getting used to being back at McDonald's and trying to find my multi-tasking groove (which I've not had much of in the first place) and I was helping with Drive-Thru. Well, apparently my multi-tasking skills aren't as good as hers which, she felt, meant that it was ok for her to treat me like an inferior plebian piece of trash.
Finally, when she decided to snappishly demand my headset and shove me off to other duties, I had it. "There's no need to be rude!" I barked. She and another co-worker tried to justify it because of my, apparent, ineptness to do the job to their satisfaction. "Huh uh!" I snapped. "I don't care! I'm trying my best and this is only my second week back on the job, so can it!" I decided a long time ago that I won't be treated like anybody's bitch.
That's not to say that I don't understand the frustration they were feeling, but even T knew that I was new back on the job. I wanted to smack her the worst because SHE KNEW.
Meh. So, it took me a little while to get past that bad mood. Admittedly, one of the things that cheered me up a bit was watching A get her Karma. That morning was heavy with rain and, while I was sequestered off in an out-of-the-way corner of the Drive-Thru to just take orders for one of the Drive-Thru lanes (fine by me), I watched A suddenly have to deal with a leak in the ceiling right above where she was taking orders for the other lane and dealing with some of the drink orders. I admit, every time she wailed about getting dripped on and futilely searched for a way to shield herself from the drips, I giggled a bit. Still, I reminded myself not to be TOO gleeful lest Karma hike a brow in my direction. I took a few (smirking) deep breaths, turned back to my business, and ignored everything else to do with it.
But, barring all that, my job has been alright. :-) Barring the fact that my feet hurt so bad by the end of the day that I'm ready to bawl my head off, that is.
My Year and a Day classes were, basically, on vacation for the past two weeks and will be resuming this upcoming Monday. ^_^ I'm very excited for that.
Overall, that's pretty much all that's been going on over the past few weeks.
Oh! And I'm in the middle of creating a website on Weebly! :-) I haven't published it yet, but I've been trying to get things set up beyond the mere bare bones. ^_^ I think I'll be able to do more of the in-depth things on there that I've been wanting to do here such as have pages from my Book of Shadows as well as bits of my writings. ^_^ I'm working on it. I hope to have it up soon.
