Today's Picture:
Hope your autumn is mighty fine! (Kobber will have to wait a while.)

Halloween is finally packed away, it only took 5 days this year. People are really upset at work after they all just lost about 6k a year in pay and some pto days. They eliminated the pm shift bjh because they wanted the work week reduced to 36 hours. One coworker told me that she will have to cut her hours because she will be working 5 or 6 12 hour days between her other job and the part time 8 hour shifts she picked up at work. One of my coworkers was crying yesterday because of the pay reduction. I've been in touch with my friend who is the manager at the big box hospital from hell I used to work for. There may be an opening in December. It means 6 weeks of intense training and lots of exams if I even get hired back. My only other option is night shift 12 hours. Kill me now on both of those options. The good side of being hired at the high stress big box is I'll make fabulous money and will only need to work 3 days a week on pm shift. Everyone keep your fingers crossed for me please. Part of me wants to retire but my SSI will be cut in half if I do.

Yes, I make cake frosting from scratch all the time. But....they sell the bakery type frosting that you get on bakery cakes, at the Pig!! (Piggly Wiggly). Even bakeries dont sell it.
My favourite flavour of course is chocolate fudge or just chocolate. Have a good evening everyone~~~
