Pink Sheets

Thursday, February 12, 2009

Well, it's almost the end of the week and I am ready for the weekend. I did take yesterday off, but it wasn't enough. I need the whole week off. However, I should probably conserve my time off considering it's only February. It reminds of a little snippet from the TV show The Office where the girl is talking about her time off and how she tries to wait as long as she can to take her vacation and this year she waited until the third week of January. I told my boss that was like me. He thought that was pretty funny.

Work is pretty slow. It's good because now I have time to blog, but a little bit scary. However, I was assured that as long as the company was still around and the mills were still running we all have a job. We did our layoff in November and there hasn't been any rumors more were on the way. But, you never know.

We haven't made any plans for Valentine's Day. We usually take Valentine's Day off, but this year it's on a Saturday so I'm pretty sure that would be a waste of a vacation day. So... we don't have anything planned. I think we should take Jillian to the Olive Garden because for some reason, every time she sees it, she says she needs to go to "The Garden". At first I didn't even know what the heck she was talking about. I don't even know how she would know about The Olive Garden. She's bizarre.

She's so bizzare she tried to give her dad a valentine that she made for Riley. She might have better luck when she's able to read because it said right on the front to Riley from Jelly Belly. I'll have to let her make one this weekend for her dad.

Happy Valentine's Day!


  • I do like Valentine's Day but not the overcommercialism stuff. Just the part about where you appreciate your loved ones! I always send cards to my friends for the day.

  • Hope you had a fun-filled Valentine's Day!

    My daughter's going through the same exact situation you are with her job. She's an account manager for an auto supplier so it's very scary. We're holding our breath, crossing our fingers, and praying.

    And then there's our GM pension and health care to worry about.


    But, thank goodness Barack is in there and not McCain/Palin.

  • Goodness....I hope no more layoffs come down! The good news though, there are a lot of survivalist near you may be able to charm your way in, or give them Jillian! They couldn't refuse her!
