Well...it has been a CRAZY last few weeks at work! The economy has finally reached our "Andy Worhol" looking Corporate Office and our floor was literally cut in half. Some supervisors had to take pay cuts, others were demoted to phone reps and still others had total job eliminations. Our staff went from 50 to 25 and now 3 call centers are merging into one great big call center to meet all your needs! It has been a challenge to try and learn while the phones are ringing off the hook non-stop. I know....I know....I have a job and I should feel thankful for that!!!!...and contrary to what you have read so far, I actually AM. The economy SUCKS right now, and I have had to watch my friends lose their jobs, and then listen to the news that all of the "bail out money"...(millions of dollars) that went to AIG is being used for employee bonuses!?...okay, I am trying to understand this one because I do understand contractual agreements, but am I wrong to think that without that bail out money they could have lost their jobs too!?...and now they have jobs and will be getting bonuses, while all of the little businesses, like the one my husband owns, had to make loan payments in lieu of giving himself a paycheck this past week!!! Okay, Mr. President...I am ready for your "big change" to come down the pike of that superb "Stimulus Package" that is supposed to help out those businesses...that too will take time, I know....I am just frustrated and stressed and just down right sick and tired that our country, The Home of the Free and the Brave... the land that I love...the land of opportunity has been reduced to a shamble of poverty and not being able to make our ends meet...and don't even get me started on all of the free benefits of illegal aliens in this country, who haven't paid a dime into our tax or Social Security system...or the wages that members of Congress and our elected officials get to take home each week. I wonder how it would feel if they had to drive themselves around or fly on a commercial flight instead of taking that private jet???
I am married to the love of my life and the most patient man in the universe (love you Dino!). We have two gorgeous daughters are 15 and 24 this summer. One graduated college this year and became an RN,got a "real job", has a house and new car.. and the other is my baby, who is a high school Sophomore this year (yikes!)...and they are the BEST!!!!I LOVE THEM TO DEATH!!
I am "grandma" to Uno & Tegan (my two grandkitties) and Nigel(my cute granddog)
I love to be creative, especially with scrapbooking, stamping, painting and paper crafts. I love to journal as well... and someday dream of quitting my 8-5 job and being able to run my own business where I can do just that...(be...do... and share creativity)
I love music, poetry, quotes, art of all kinds and journaling. I am also getting into and loving altered art/books. I love to cook and entertain and love movies that combine music, cooking or creativeness. I also love horror flicks, vampires and things that go bump in the night...halloween is right after Christmas in my book...and then come birthdays! Comedies are right up there at the top of the list too.
I sing in the shower and dance in the rain! :)
