I’ve been really down emotionally for the last 6 weeks or so…I haven't really “cooked” a meal in weeks…had a sink full of dirty dishes that has been staring me in the face for longer then I want to admit…but after the couple of hours in to the plant this morning I finally looked in the mirror and said you got to get over this…did the dishes…cleaned out the frig…(another job that was long over due)…and went out and got some good things to eat…made a simple omelet on toasted pumpernickel …topped with a store bought generic sausage gravy with coffee for a late lunch at 3:30 PM…while my pot of a beautiful piece of shank beef, and numerous aromatic veggies, with a bit of turnip and red skinned potatoes were on a low simmer…had a bit of it after 6 PM…nice…

I awoke in a really bad place this AM…mentally decent but physically forget about it…I felt all of my 58 years and a tad more…so I discover I got 3 loads and 4 truck orders for tomorrow…so go out on a scouting trip trying to ascertain where everything is and I can’t find a couple of pallets…2 sources say I got ‘um but I can find them…so I pulled the stair ladder on the transfer and crawled up on time…well I got what I need but I really hate it when whoever loads the transfer can’t log the pallets right…so I’m crawling off the top of the dang pallets feeling worse then I have all morning…boss wanders by on his way to lunch…J-man I say I think I might take the afternoon off…I feel like I’ve been drug through a knot hole backwards….you can’t says he…because I am…dang…

Stopped after work for the check thing and to gas the car…and decided to stop at the dollar store to get a few mirco-waveable meals for lunches…and spied some no name brands of sausage gravy…I love sausage gravy but up to this point really have not the skill to make homemade and haven’t found a store bought brand that was worth a fart in a wind storm…and although I did add a fair amount of pepper and freshly ground sea salt…really nice…must remember to go back tomorrow and buy what they have left…

A zombie night…just going through the motions and a heavy day tomorrow…dang…night all

Today was whacked out and weird…first of all the container load to Portugal that was supposed to load tomorrow got moved into today because the “gate” on the ship closed tomorrow at 4 PM…marketing never asked shipping (I would have checked) or production whether it would be done or not…they just changed the date…. 11AM appointment…driver gets there at 9:30 AM…. the last roll for the load comes off the machine at 1:30 PM and the drivers speaks limited English…. plus it’s a load at this location…load at the second location and then come back to the first location…and wait for 2 hours…dang…

When the pallet was finally done I was at the other location finishing the Nogales/San Diego load that was supposed to be tomorrow but had to be loaded because of the drivers schedule…and the Wisner Idaho load that needs to be in the ‘Cuse tomorrow to connect with the long haul trucker…wasn’t picked up by the local guy…we’ve been trying for weeks to get a connection to Wisner, and if we miss this one I’m going to be p*ssed…

Have spent the night in an ugly mood…just haven’t been able to get rid of the “baggage” from work…have struggled with leaving work at work…have had a better time doing that lately…except for tonight…
Checked the old dashboard tonight and only 27 posts from the 2000th post to my blog…early April looks like the approximate date for the milestone…

I have been trying to take a half day vacation this week some things to attend to…plus it would finish off last years vacation…had a load yesterday that I thought would occur in the morning…yeah half day vac…which got pushed back several times until it ended up today at 8 AM…looking good…but to many other issues plied up so maybe Wednesday PM…now a load I knew about…+ a load added…+ a load we’ve been having great difficulty finding some one willing to take…we’ve had a load sitting ready to ship to Wisner, Idaho for almost 2 weeks and no takers…so tomorrow is not only out but means most of the day for the old trollie on the forklift…

Worship team practice tonight ended up a wash…we had a bunch of technical problems and after an hour of trying to resolve them, we left without singing a note…what ever has become of unplugged…but spent most of the night chatting with my peeps…despite the lost practice was a good night…well almost…found out tonight that our keyboardist and descant vocalist is leaving the area in June, her hubby is military…will miss the abilities of the K-lady…but have also missed the abilities of several other members of the group who are either military or military related…

Today was not a difficult work day just a frustrating one…I had a mid morning load and nothing else shaking so intended to take the afternoon off, a few things to do that I’ve been putting off, and a ½ day left from last year…well by the time the day was done the load kept getting pushed back all the way to tomorrow morning…nuts…rats and that’s the reason they call it work and not fun…

Dang, this week end has been a drag…a very down time for me physically…ah nuts…I was very pleased with the ‘cuse getting a 5 deed in the NCAA’s but quite frankly can’t understand why Seton Hall got in and Cincinnati didn’t…once I saw that SH was in I was saying to myself…dang… the Big East got 9 bids…was shocked when Cinncy didn’t get a bid…I guess that only proves that I don’t have a voice in the seeding…
