How I Love Changes

Filed under: Work — Mr. Green @ 10.09 am

Changes in my work schedule mean more work and less blogging. I’ll be spending about an hour and a half each day at my company doing the billing for the orders I do here. How I love changes!

Not one order

Filed under: Work — Mr. Green @ 12.02 pm

I haven’t had one order come in today and I think it’s about time for my lunch break. As much as I enjoy free time to browse the internet, I need some work to feel like I’m accomplishing something. All my web design work must be done at home, so I really can’t be that productive here at work.

I know what I can do! I’ll start reading this book I’ve been lugging to work every day and not looking at. Mmm…lunch and a book sounds quite appetizing right now.

Bountiful Harvest

Filed under: Work — Mr. Green @ 5.42 pm

I guess it’s harvest time at work because yesterday three massive files came down which has made me busier than ever. I spent all day today copying one file. I guess file is not a good word for it because it conjures up images of a folder. This file took up three boxes and they wanted two copies. Hopefully I will be able to get everything done on time.

It wasn’t a bad day overall, though. I was in fairly good mood and made some good money for My Company which I’m sure they’ll enjoy.

Tomorrow I get to enjoy another bountiful harvest from the lovely fields of supermarket with my family. Jamie and I are going to my parents’ house for food, fun and festivities. Stephen is back from college for a few days and Andrew and Natalie will be paying a visit all the way from Illinois! I think I’ll miss opening Christmas presents on Thanksgiving like we did here last year.

God is good and I have a lot to be thankful for!

Edit 2004.12.01: I changed the name of my company to “My Company” in light of this article on Personal Blogs and The Workplace. I have taken care to hide the identity of “The Company” I work at, but it’s good to keep my employer anonymous for now.

Work a Tired Man

Filed under: Work — Mr. Green @ 3.10 pm

I’m feeling tired and all wacky, like I’ve been using crystal meth. This of course is due to the snow plowing I did on Sunday morning, not drugs. I was called at 1.00am and didn’t get to bed until 5.00pm not wanting to go to bed too early. At least I got a couple hours of sleep before getting called this time. It’s not so much that I didn’t get enough sleep, just that my schedule is all wacky. Now I don’t feel so good…maybe it’s something else too.

I took some pictures at Intel (where we plow) so maybe I’ll put them in our Gallery.

Of course, wouldn’t you know it…. Now they have me working hard all day here. I’ve been working almost non stop all day (unusual and annoying) and I have a stack of nine orders! I was going to wait until i had free time to blog, but i don’t think that’s going to happen today. Needless to say, I had better stop writing and start copying. blah. :(

The First Plow

Filed under: Work — Mr. Green @ 4.10 pm

Holloween brought with it plenty of cold weather as usual here. I had a pretty good idea that we would be getting enough snow to plow, but didn’t know when I would get “the call”. It came shortly after 11.00pm when I was just about asleep. I drove through blinding snow in our Cutlass Cierra and made it to work a little before midnight. What a night…morning…day…whatever! There were only three of us and two trucks because Zach (the boss) is out hunting and didn’t bring all the equipment down.

I plowed in a beast of a truck and spent most of the night plowing one road because the snow kept coming down. Some time before sunrise (if you can call it that) I started feeling quite ill, but once it got light I felt better. I did call in to work to let them know I wasn’t feeling well and wouldn’t show up which I ended up feeling bad about after I woke up at 3.00 that afternoon. At 8.30am I was relieved by someone fresh and went for breakfast (for some strange reason) where I tried to eat food when all I wanted was bed. The drive home was probably the worst and I nearly wrecked after I sloshed around on some slush without realizing I was speeding. :| Last night I was back at it for a couple hours cleaning up the parking lots.

Today, I’m feeling a bit ill and quite tired today in a sort of “what kind of drugs was I on last night” sort of way. I did have a good talk with Joe (my day job boss) and may be getting a night job that pays more than what I’m doing now. I told him why I called in and that it wouldn’t happen again because it’s importnant to me to be honest. Honesty, in my opinion, is more than not lying. It’s about telling someone truth that you think they want or need to know, not just truth that makes you look better.

At any rate, plowing was kind of fun, very tiring and pays nicely. I plan to try to keep it up for a while. The next time I plow and actually force myself to come into work may tell a different story, though.
