Just looked at my work schedule for the next three weeks - the last week I'm down to 3 days. Not real happy about it, even though I know it's because it's just a slow time at the store. Still, one would think, since I worked extra days without objection, that I wouldn't be one of those taking the cut. Not sure how many weeks that will happen, but... Just another reason to look for other work.

Got my W2 online this year and did just a quick calculation - getting back more than I expected, but of course, not as much as I'd want. LOL  But every little bit helps.

Going to get security lights for the back yard this week. Bad enough my truck radio was stolen last year (while it sat disabled for a couple months) but now my brother's discovered someone stole our old wheelbarrow. I mean, WTF? Who steals an old beat-up wheelbarrow? But just the fact it was stolen was enough. No more believing that our little town is 'safe'. And next spring I'm putting up a fence between the barn and the toolhouse, so they don't have such easy access to our yard. (Don't think my brother will object to that, under the circumstances. Although I know he wouldn't go for a six foot privacy fence around the whole yard. He's not into fortress thinking - yet. LOL)

Sooo... taking down the Christmas tree tonight. Kinda hate to, because it was so pretty this year. But all good things, y'know.

Am thinking I'll be doing more blogging on my writing blog this year. Maybe. It still doesn't excite me all the much, and I doubt I'll do more than maybe monthly, but what the hell. Give it a shot and see if anybody reads it.

It's the "It's Just Me" link on the side there. Nothing monumental so far :p

Companies never show loyalty to the staff I've found. You work extra time, sometimes unpaid, and they'll never thank you for it. Screw 'em, I say.

The wheelbarrow. My first question these days about weird unlikely thefts of stuff is always "was it metal?" Prices for metals are so high that here in the UK at least people are stealing every bit of metal they can get that hasn't got an armed guard on it!

Look forward to reading that blog. Have a schedule and remind yourself in enough time to get something written for it! That means you have to come up with something to keep to your schedule.

Yeah, the thing that gets me about work is they just gave me a verbal warning about days off - I'd actually dared to be sick again. (Which is another thing - I've never, in 40 years of working, had warnings or anything else about calling in. Good grief.)

The wheelbarrow was one of those big old industrial types - so huge metal 'cask' and wooden handles. So yeah, metal might have been the reason. So dumb, though.

Been reading some other writerly type blogs, and so maybe it won't be so bad. Won't be like I'm telling people how to get published (which I don't know about personally) but more opinions on writing and writing advice (which I do know about LOL).
