This is the busiest time of year for me.

Well despite all my questions I've been had! Thought I was being hired for 25 hours-well it's not - talking to my mgr could be 0-20 hours /week-no guarantee. Another lesson learned-talk to the area mgr-not the hiring mgr. Well this week is 1 hour. WOW
I need to strangle some one
1 hour? Unbelievable!

No, and I used the cottonelle that I was saving for her, too.....

We had open house both days over the weekend.....one guy brought his wife back today to see it but we haven't heard back yet..(which is not a good sign)...we are having broker preview tomorrow.....and open house again on Sunday...... Clean, clean, clean, scrub, scrub, scrub....

Before all this, I planted/replaced 3 huge flats of sweet alyssum, some vincas and a few impatiens..... We are finally getting some summer heat......(well, it's hot inland, but not here, but too hot for some begonias that are out in the sun, so I need to go buy maybe a little 6-pak of vincas and replace.... Boy, if it wasn't for sale, my 'spring' planting would have been over long ago..... I plant a lot in the spring, but not summer....<sigh>

I had very bad headaches for 2 days solid.....it tried to come back today but I headed it off at the pass......(thank gawd!) Last night, I didn't fall asleep until 4:30 this morning.....I took melatonin tonight and I need to go to bed soon.....

DKVA....1 hour this week? Why do they even need someone for one hour? I'm so sorry!

And, Wurzig, I'm so very sorry for your stresses. A house on the market is a big stress-er and you've got so much else going on too. I want you to know that I planted a St Joseph statue in my front yard for you yesterday. Some people think it's silly but a lot of people (especially we Catholics) believe that it can help to sell a house sooner. Of course, it should be planted in the front yard of the house that's on the market but I told St Joseph about your home while I was planting it.

I dropped a case of dog food (24 large cans) on my foot yesterday and it feels as though I chipped off a piece of bone on the side of the foot. So I'm limping a lot right now. No complaints, though...some of you have it a lot worse and I'm praying that things improve for you. In fact, Catholics believe in offering up their sadness, pain, etc for the benefit of others and I've been offering up my foot pain for Wurzig, DKVA and others. That may sound ridiculous to non-Catholics but please at least accept it as a token of my friendship and concern for you.

I think that is wonderful TFW! Sometimes I spend so much of my prayer life focusing on my own self and my family, until I neglect to pray for my friends as I should. I'm going to take your post as a reminder from God to spend more time caring for others....instead of just worrying about my own back yard.

DKVA....how is the job market in your area? I know it is really rough here. We put up with so much crap at work that wouldn't have panned previously just because the job market is so slim.

Now in hindsight-I think they over hire.

OMG-hopefully you're ok! Don't worry about me-I worry about you!

Omg! Are you sure your OK? I thought I was going to die form the pain when I broke my toes, I can't imagine what you did!
