Just stuff

Tuesday morning when I left for work it was only 43 degrees and when I was on my way home it was 70. The nights are getting much colder and I actually broke down and turned the thermostat up in my house. I don't normally let the furnace run this early in the year but it was feeling extremely chilly. Monday on my day off I made sure to get all the storm windows put in to help keep the cold out.

Sunday at work I had another cake order to do. They wanted an orange border and light purple flowers

So we have a manager that works just 3 days a week. This was a job he started after he retired from working as a prison guard. Well he's decided that he is ready to retire completely and his last day will be Oct 26. Unfortunately for me, the boss wants me to take over closing the two nights a week that the other closing manager is off. I told him I don't want to but I'll do it. So there goes my schedule again getting all messed up. I told him this better be temporary because I hate doing this. We shall see.

Oh gosh. If you had refused, would they have fired you? If not, I would have refused! You have earned some consideration. We have been running the heat at night and the air conditioning in the day!

oh no no no on closing, what time does the store close? it will mess with your sleep and also upset Mr Gibbs. will you go in late those days? will they change? or be the same? so sorry

I am wondering a lot of what Sandra has asked...and there should be a pay on grease or nice bonus for this. Even if you go in late.

I turned our heat on recently too, but then it got warm again. Today, it might get to mid-70's.
I sure hope you having to close the store those couple nights will only be temporary.

So you're closing two nights a week. Let me guess what nights those will be. I'm so sorry this is happening to you. Bugger.

Have a fabulous day, Ann. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

To say that your employer takes advantage of you is putting it mildly.

We've turned our heat on occasionally too, and even the air conditioning when it's been too humid out! No sense in being cold or hot, right?

Good luck with that Ann. I hope you don't have to do it for too long. That's a pretty cake! Chilly morning and nights here too and nice during the day so far. Rain and colder weather next week. We will probably have to turn the heat on next week.

Mmmmm, that's not 'my' color combination choice. -smile- You do what is requested of course.

Mmmmm, how late will this be? I'd not like it at all, to be working late, especially now that it's getting dark so much earlier.

Do you REALLY have to do this?????

Or are you JUST BEING NICE?

Hope you choose what is BEST FOR YOU!

Ugh!!! May your closing duties be short-lived, Ann, and your schedule be back to normal soon. I don't blame you... I would NOT like closing either. That cake is beautiful. I wouldn't have thought to put orange and purple together but boy oh boy, I love it!!! ~Andrea xoxoxo

Hootin' Anni said...

Orange AND purple? Hmmm, wonder if there is a significant reason for the color combination?

As for closing the store, I hope this is not something that will be permanent.

Yes, may your closing duties be temporary - and it's not quite time for the air-con switch on my heat-pump as there was a night this last week, where it was on for the evening. And today a gale force wind with no sun but not particularly cold or warm ...
