Good morning! I feel oh so productive today! It's day number 3 of being on reserve, or "on call" for you laypeople. Usually I get a trip the first day and I'm off on an adventure, soaring through the air at 40k feet, meeting lots of people, staying in some fancy hotel, eating fabulous hotel food, looking fabulous in my new uniform dress... Oh yeah, and "working". ;) However, it's the slow time of the year, so I haven't been used at all. I've been at the crashpad, essentially alone for 3 nights and almost 3 days...(2 days,13 hrs, 26 minutes...27...) After spending most of the first day on Facebook, watching TV, and constantly checking my schedule to see if they were going to assign me something, I finally got busy doing some things that I've desperately needed to do. I started with banking stuff...paying bills, budgeting. I ran to the post office. I rearranged the small appliances and tv in the kitchen/living-room at the CP...then I spent some time on Pinterest. Long story short (ha) I found WEEBLY webpage designer. It's free and so easy to use, I just jumped right in and Voila!! I finally have a website done. Yay!!!! I will continue to edit and add things as I learn about all the options I have on here, and hopefully it will stay interesting. My intention is to use this primarily for promotion of my jewelry designs and I hope to have a "store" set up soon. I guess this is the month of being forced to have downtime so I can get things done. The universe makes things happen in strange ways, that's for sure. For example - I had to call in sick this month because I got --- PINK-EYE!! Oh, yeah. Not once, but twice in 2 weeks. I'd post a picture, but my vanity and pride prevent such a thing. Who freakin gets pink-eye at 44??? Me. But because of that, I cleaned out my attic, my garage, sold half of my belongings on Craig's List, put stuff in a garage sale, installed a hammock chair on the back deck, and hung some curtain thingys in my bedroom. Whew! All of these things I've been meaning to get done when I had time, but that has been really hard to come by lately. I guess all my complaining about how overwhelmed I've felt was heard and duly noted, and my prayers for time were answered. I'm just glad I didn't choose to use that time doing something silly, like sleeping in, playing with my dogs, or sitting in the new chair on the back deck watching butterflies. Sigh... ;)
Oh! Scheduling just called! Going to MSP and back! Yippee!
