My Own Thoughts

-For 5 months, overtime has been virtually non existent for me. I have worked 2 days of OT since September.

-New graduating classes, rough job market (people are hanging on to the job they have), and projects closing out combined to turn 5-10 overtime slots into 3 or more extra personnel every day, more or less.

-The only way to get overtime was to wake up on your off day at 4 AM and call in to see if the shift was running short from call outs or new projects that popped up.

-Today will is the third day of OT for me in the past 3 weeks. It’s very helpful considering that I am going on vacation.

-Today also marks a raise for me, which is going to be amplified by my OT.

-I interviewed on Monday for operations. I have been told that 40 people are fighting for 15 job openings. In all, I feel my chances are pretty slim this go around, but if this door is shut then I trust God.

-Hind sight is 20/20. I have learned so much from all my mistakes and even successes. God is so good even when (especially when) I don’t deserve it.

-This year is about 18% over. It seems like we just celebrated New Year’s Day. Wow!

-I can’t wait to get my $13 extra each week in my paycheck. This is what Democrats call a substantive tax cut.

-What’s up with Pelosi dancing around like a giddy school girl during Obama’s address to the congress? How did she get where she is?

What is the website number to track porkulus spending?

Thought Omelet

-Day 12 of my bachelorhood is here. I am doing OK in case you wanted to know. The birds and plants are still alive.

-I have not heard from Marcela in two days now. She is at a camp with no electricity so she cannot charge her phone. I can hardly wait for her to get back.

-Life group last night was great. Jason facilitated and we discussed the parable of talents and it was a great discussion.

-It’s looking good for a fishing trip on Monday and/or Thursday. Overtime at work has almost totally disappeared.

-I have a trade and a special request not to get mandatory overtime on July 30 and 31. That would be lobster mini season. My brother and I will be catching some bugs.

-No overtime is good and it’s bad. It’s good so I can relax a little. It’s bad because I wanted to work as much as possible until Marcela got back.

-I decided to save on gas mileage and drive Marcela’s beautiful little Chevy Cavalier (it’s a gorgeous little car!) to work instead of the truck while she is away. A few people at work have laughed at the little thing. I don’t blame them one bit, but I will continue to save the money.

-I found a site for free games for my Blackberry. I have sudoku now. 🙂

-The Citizen Cane is now the #1 result when you google the term “annoying songs” because of this post which is now my #1 most visited post of all time, and also #1 when you search google for pictures using the term “beetle juice shrunken head” because of this post.

-I’m really look forward to church this week. Word on the street is that the videos this week are going to be some of the funniest ever.
