The weekend is coming!

It is Friday and the weekend is coming!! Today is the only day this week that I am not doing overtime. Yeah! I have gotten my new shift at work. It starts on 10/25/2011. 8am to 4:30pm Tuesday thru Saturday. I am off one day during the week and that is a good thing. I will be able to save my PTO hours for something fun instead of doctor's appointments. I will be able to get to my quilting group and guild meeting. I am so excited. I will be able to do overtime and still have a life.

I have moved the quilt in the banner from the floor frame in the basement to a lap frame next to my work station in the living room. When I am slow on the phones I will be able to put a few stitches on the quilt. I was not able to get much quilting done on it while it was in the basement. It is very calming to work on it in between calls. I take customer service calls all day long. I have been doing it for over 5 years and just recently have started working from home. I would not trade it for the world.

My sister, Karen and I are going to the gambling boat in Indiana tonight and then tomorrow hooking up with the rest of my sisters and my mom for breakfast before my sister leaves to go back to Georgia. Her visit has been short but she how packed a lot of stuff into the time she was home.

This weekend will be yard work for sure. The lawn is screaming to be cut. It has been longer than this and I am not in danger of losing children in the yard yet. I am also hoping to work on the mulch pile on Sunday if the weather holds. It has been warm and sunny all week but I have been doing overtime. If you volunteer for overtime you own it and cannot give it back, unless it is the company's idea. It was their idea to cancel overtime for today. Not mine.

Time to finish the laundry in the washer and get ready for work. And get ready for the weekend!!

In stitches,
