Guess catnaps it will be!


I still have not gotten my schedule fixed from my other job and it seems Black Friday/Saturday is gonna be hellish. Here’s what my schedule looks like:

Friday 11/23
1:30pm-5:30pm: work at 1st Job
5:00pm-2:00am: work at 2nd Job (this is after the ‘adjustment’ it obviously needs to be fixed, originally this was a 6pm-3:30am shift)
5.5 Hours off! Minus 30 minutes each to and from work, minus an hour to shower & get ready for work=3.5 to nap & eat!
Saturday 11/24
6:30am-11:00am: work at 2nd Job
Noon-4:00pm: work at 1st Job

So obviously Friday needs to fixed because I can’t start work at 5:00 when I’m working until 5:30 at my first job. It’ll be interesting to see what my schedule for next week will be, judging by this week schedule, they’ll double book me at least twice next week too. I doubt I’ll even nap in between the time I leave Saturday morning to the time I come back. I’m not one of those people who can just fall asleep at the drop of a hat. This is just insane.

UPDATE: I finally called and made sure my Tuesday shift was covered and so now I think I just have to worry about my Friday/Saturday shifts, I won’t bother with them until I come in on Thursday- Thanksgiving!


Thanksgiving? What’s that?


This might totally reveal where one of my jobs is but I’m not going to outright say it. I got my schedule for my work next week and to say it’s a little jacked up, is putting it lightly. I probably wasn’t paying that much attention because I didn’t need more hours at this job, but I was under the impression that I would be able to spend the day with my family on Thanksgiving- you know the holiday you’re suppose to spend with your family before the insanity of Black Friday and Christmas kick in. I was not expecting to be working from 5-9, one of my mandatory holiday shifts. This year we were suppose to go to San Ramon and we were all finally going to be together for Thanksgiving but alas I am going to be missing it because of work. In case you didn’t know where that is- San Ramon is about an hour and a half from where I live. Even if we ate our meal at 2 pm I’d still have to leave right after to make it home in time to start at 5. So I won’t ruin everyone else’s day I’m just not going, I want my family to have a good holiday and not rush through dinner and then driving home.

To add insult to injury I was also scheduled to work on Black Friday from 6pm to 3:30 am, then from 6:30 am to 11:30 am followed by a shift at my other job from noon to 4:30 pm. That’s not going to work. So I brought it up at work and luckily they found it unusual as well and will fix this. As well as my double booking on Tuesday. Oy, what a headache!

The fact that its not a known fact that the store will be open just annoys me. All this hoopla about Target opening at 8 and no mention of our store which has normal hours on Thanksgiving and then closes for 4 hours to reopen at midnight and will stay open for the next 24 hours!


This weather! Hot, cold, hot, cold- c’mon already!


So last week was so nice and chilly I was about ready to get out my sweaters and fuzzy pajamas and now this week we got weather in the 80’s again! I even got a nice fleecy hoodie I could wear (I finally got to wear it tonight but I quickly had to take it off cuz it was hot), they keep saying its the last warm wave before it gets cold finally but is it really?! I just want cool weather, the sun can come out but I want a nice breeze, chilly mornings and coffee weather, that’s not too much to ask right?
