Wow I'm tired...

I was right - MASSIVE order today. My stock covered the back wall to a height over my head in places and was lined up three aisles besides. Jonnie gave me Tracie to help out so I priced and she emptied my carts for me. I managed to get all the stock out of the aisles and got a start on the back wall, but I feel like I barely got through half of it - if that. I'm going to go in a couple of hours early tomorrow and see if I can get a head start on it. Ideally I would like to be able to get everything priced by the time I go home tomorrow, but I don't know if that's feasible or not. Hopefully I can get an assistant tomorrow as well. The next problem will be finding a location to store all the leftovers until there is space for them.

I finally gave in and sent an email to Sallie Mae today about my student loan. I've tried all the automated options and nothing is helping, so I need to have an actual human look at my situation and see if there is anything that can be done. I am too far under to get out right now and it will be December before my bonus checks show up. That is my only chance to get out of the hole I've dug for myself, but I don't think they will be patient that long. Ah well... I'll keep doing what I can and hope for the best.

Annita gave me a box of Funfetti cake mix and some Funfetti icing yesterday. The boys said they don't really like them so they figured I might want them. Fortunately I know someone who is extremely happy with Funfetti and so Abby is very excited at the donation. I just like the idea that they were given to me by my current quizzers and I'm giving them to a friend I met through Quizzing.
Speaking of Quizzing, the next meet is this Saturday. We're headed for the Aldersgate church in Indianapolis. I told Annita I could drive the church van, so I get the chance to get the 14-passenger van up and running again for my first time in years. I kind of prefer being the driver over being a passenger for longer trips like this anyway. Makes me feel like I'm doing something. =)

I was running behind on some of my podcasts last week and when I got in the car this morning I almost skipped Rick & Amy's podcast from last week and just listened to this week's. But I went ahead and listened to the former one and I'm glad I did. They did a special tribute to Petra - which is the first I've heard any of their music in a long time. What's funny is that I listen to my podcasts on Stitcher and I sometimes run them at 2x speed. Years ago this would have annoyed me because running a recording at higher speeds causes a higher pitch and general distortion, but with digital files they can speed it up and it is still at the same pitch and relatively easy to understand - even at twice the speed. Rick and Amy generally speak clearly enough that I can understand them well enough when I run at 2x. But this was the first time I've ever listened to Petra music at double speed. I've got to say that it gives them an whole different sound! =D But I learned some things about the group and heard some songs I've never heard before and now I'm kind of wanting to go pick up an old CD or two of theirs and take a re-listen to some of the songs.

Okay... getting up in 6 hours. Time for me to be unconscious.

Current Location: home
Current Mood: anxious anxious
Current Music: Petra

wow

is all this stock for the holidays or just stuff you needed, sounds like a lot of work for one person. No idea why but I thought you ran that store.
Oh no, you poor car gave up. What are you driving now. I don't drive Mark and Carl have lost years dodge Dakota they share. Mostly Carl uses it cause Mark can't go anywhere unless he lets gramps or Trent know first. He's only had is license back couple months because it expired when he was sick this last time. Gramps had to take him to do the test again.

Re: wow

It's for the Christmas season. My department is one that is hit really hard by people buying presents, so I have to boost a lot of stuff up a lot higher than I usually carry.
My current car is a Ford Taurus that I bought late last year. So far it's pretty good, although I do need to get it in for some basic tune-up work.
