Lets end the week with a few questions or comments that were made throughout the past week.
Monday there were some questions regarding my daughter getting married. I guess I never mentioned it but yes, she's getting married the day after Thanksgiving. Just a small gathering of family.
Wednesday a few of you commented on talking to other players while playing games. The nice thing about the gin rummy that I play is that while you can talk to your opponent, you can only choose from a list of words and phrases what you want to say. That way like Ginny mentioned, you don't get people hitting on you when you are trying to play a game. I normally choose to just ignore the other person if they try and chat with me.
Andrea mentioned that sometimes she wonders if the people she's playing against are sometimes automated instead of real people. I've often wondered the same thing. It's possible that if they can't find a live player they just put you up against the computer.
Yesterday I talked about my new schedule and having to close a couple nights a week.
Ginny asked if I refused would they have fired me. Honestly, no, I do believe so. He has very few "good" employees and he told me recently that me and the deli manager are about the only two in the store he can count on.
Sandra asked what time does the store close. We are open from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. so yes, closing would definitely mess with my sleep. I'm normally in bed sometime between 8:30 and 9:00.
Sandra also asked and Rose wondered too if I would go in late on the days I closed and if the days would change. Yes, I would go in late it would likely be a 1:00 to 9:00 shift and once the days were set it wouldn't change unless someone needed a day off.
Beside the Babbling brook asked if I really had to do this or if I was just being nice. I did tell the boss that I didn't want to do it but I would and that I wanted it to be temporary which he said it would be.
Well he handed me a schedule the other day and I wan not happy about it at all. This was just for next week while I did a couple nights with the manager who's retiring. I've closed before but things have changed so I need a refresher. 2 nights would have been enough. Any way I complained about how he had it and asked if I could edit it which he said he figured I would. I gave him my suggestions and he didn't say much. Wednesday I asked him if I was supposed to post the schedule the way it was and he said no. Yesterday he brought me a new schedule with my hours back to normal. Apparently he worked something out and now I won't have to do the nights. YIPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

First the disappointment. When I ordered the fire tablet I also ordered a Bluetooth keyboard case. That item shipped separate and was supposed to arrive yesterday. When it didn't I went to track the package to see where it was.
First I see this

I'm heading home yesterday, I get to the stop sign and all I need to do is make a right and I'm the first house on the right. There is a road closed sign sitting there because they are working on resurfacing the road. The flag girl sees my turn signal and heads towards my car. I roll down my window and tell her that's my house right there. She says ok and lets me go through.
After letting Gibbs out I went out front and took a couple videos because why not? It's blog material right?

Actually, I've done a couple things lately that have been all about ME. I decided that this year I would buy myself Christmas gifts, wrap them, and put them under the tree so Gibbs and I can open presents on Christmas morning. Silly yes but who cares. I already have a couple things ready. I purchased two things recently that I didn't really need so I decided I would save them to give myself for Christmas. I just realized as I was typing this that I'll have a post for after Christmas to show all the gifts I got myself.
Any way, yesterday I was on Amazon. I've been wanting a new fire tablet because my kindle is getting pretty old and my Samsung tablet bit the dust. I had gotten an email advertising a deal on the latest fire tablet so I went to check it out. With the deal they were offering, the cash back points I've earned using my Prime visa card and the $50 gift card I got from a sweet friend (thanks again) I made the purchase. I think I'll save this for a Christmas gift even though it's scheduled to arrive on Monday.
The other thing I did happened after I had that really BAD Friday at work. I've been wanting a computer for the room formerly known as the man cave. Wade's desk has sat empty and if I want to use my computer I have to go upstairs. Well, you guessed it. I purchased and all in one computer. I'm loving that room more and more all the time.
Here's my cozy little corner for hanging out on my computer.

First off from the comments on my post about the most recent cake order I did at work.
Andrea said Oh how fun, Ann, and a very good suggestion. Our local mom 'n pop grocery store does character cakes all the time. I wonder if they're breaking the law?! Probably!
Actually, you can do character cakes under certain circumstances. I can purchase either an edible image or what's called a deco pac which contains various pieces to put on a cake. These are ok to use no matter what character it is. However, if I freehand draw a licensed character that is considered copyright infringement.
On my post regarding the shower fizzies a lot of you confessed to doing similar things. It's nice to know I'm not alone.
On my post regarding my really bad day at work last Friday Catherine said Ann you need a 2 week vacation, some place restful but beautiful - away from both home and people.
Well Catherine, I couldn't agree more. It would be wonderful to go lounge around somewhere having people wait on me and not having to worry about anything.
Well that's about all I've got for today. Maybe some time before this week is over I'll have something more to blog about.

Yesterday morning it was dark and dreary. It was the perfect day for sitting around with a good book. Aside from a few small household chores, reading was pretty much all I did. I ended up getting drowsy and took a little nap. When I woke up around 2:00 the sun was finally shining. By 4:00 the dark clouds were forming again. All in all it was a good day off.
Depending on how you have your comments set up, I might not be able to comment today. It seems that anyone with a pop up comment box comes back with an error message if I try to leave a comment. I am reading though.

I had a girl order a cake for her daughters birthday. She wanted something with Dora the Explorer but I didn't have anything. I told her I couldn't copy anything because that would be a copyright infringement. I suggested doing a cake that looked like a beach with palm trees and she could add her own Dora figures.

Yesterday started out good. Then I got to work and it was all down hill from there. One thing after another annoyed me and then people were involved and it only got worse. When I left work I made a quick stop to pick things up so that I didn't have to go anywhere today. I waited in line forever because Walmart will only open 2 registers with a live cashier. Then when it's finally my turn, my credit card says "can not process request." I tried it three times before it finally worked. The final straw was the jerk who was tailgating me on the way home.
Today is going to be a no people day. I doubt that one people free day will be enough to refresh me but it'll have to do.
