I Am Still Here

I am sorry I haven't been posting much on my blog(s) lately. I just can't seem to come up with something interesting to talk about. I can't even seem to glean something from my Bible readings to post.

Work has been picking up now that people are going off on vacation. For the last couple of weeks we have been working full days (8 hours) instead of around 7 hours each day. An hour doesn't seem like that big of a deal, but it all adds up! And besides, it makes a big difference when your job is sitting behind a computer all day doing data entry...

Three new ladies have been hired at work since I started back. Before I started there were about five who had been hired after the new year. Two of those ladies left - one left because her husband wanted her to stay home with the kids (and they didn't need the money anyway), and the other one just up and stopped coming into work. She never called to tell them she quit or anything like that.

I suspect that two of these ladies recently hired are to replace the two that left, and the other one isn't doing any keying, but only batching (which is just taking the airwaybills and putting them into batches of 50 each - there are things they have to look for and such, so it's not just simplying counting out 50 bills and putting a paperclip on them). I don't think this lady will be working past summer though (she looks young enough to be a student, and they usually hire 2 students each summer to do that work).

My wrists aren't hurting much now that I've found my wrist thingys (I really should learn the name for them) and worn them some. I have also been taking a break from my knitting so I am sure that is helping as well. I do know though that this is a job that I can not do for ever. In fact, I am counting down the days until I'm done this summer because I just can't keep doing this.

Anyway, I'm going to call it an early night tonight because we can go in early in the morning because we are a little behind on the work due to the holiday on Monday and several people being out. I only made it in 15 minutes early this morning, so tomorrow I'd like to make it a little more (not that I want to, but it does help with the pay cheque) than 15 minutes.

Have a Christ filled day!

wrist thingys - I call mine "braces".

Aren't they lovely? I mean not PRETTY but they make me feel great!

Have a wonderful day. **hugs**

Dear Shelly,
It's hard doing a job you don't really like, hope the bracelet thingies help. God Bless.

I'm glad to see that you're at least blogging! Last week it was hard for me to even get off the couch let alone get on the computer, but the past couple of days have been really good. I'm finally learning how to continue living in spite of my circumstances! Thanks for not dropping by my blog. Your comments encourage and bless me!

Hi Shelly,
Thanks for dropping by my Home Away From Home. *Ü*

So sorry times are a bit difficult right now, I know it's not fun. Just keep reading that Bible and looking to the Lord for strength.
