Happy Turkey Day!!!!!!!

 Posted by Picasa

With my job comes the responsibility of having to work 24-7 and all holidays. At 911 it is the luck of the draw, some year you work Thanksgiving and Christmas or you don’t. I seems like I work the holidays most of the time. I have a wonderful family though and I can depend on them to make my day great no matter if I am working or not.
This year my co-workers and I are lucky enough to have dinner catered. I think I mentioned it earlier. Fred and my daughters are right now slaving away in the kitchen roasting a 20lb bird with all the trimmings. The food is starting to pile up on the table; I hate my nose right now.

NWS Melbourne, Florida

Yesterday I went with several co-workers to Melbourne for a quick tour of the Weather Center. It was interesting enough but although I love a good thunder storm and it always gets my adrenaline going the NWS in Melbourne did the opposite. I tried so hard to stay awake but I worked 12 hours prior to our little field trip. Just as soon as I sat down and became comfortable, my eyes would begin to close. I was a little embarrassed but I will survive. Check out the weather web site it is pretty cool.

The rest of the trip was nice. I heard a little office gossip and spent time with co-workers I haven’t seen in a while. Napped on the way back home and arrived back at the center with just enough time to pick up Beth from school.

We are gearing up for Thanksgiving. I have to work but my husband and daughters are so eager to cook Thursday they volunteered to cater Thanksgiving dinner at 911. We are all excited.

No Over Time.....

I have no more over time. I signed up for the 30th of November but that’s it. I do not know what I am going to do. Clean I guess……

Today I started on the Florida room; chair rails are nice but do you have any idea how much dust gathers on these little ledges. I washed a few windows but I still have the rest of the house to go.

I cooked a nice pot of chicken soup last night. Tonight I think we will be having Pork Chops or Kielbasa….. I can’t decide.

I still have a ton of laundry to do but that’s everyday so no big deal I guess……..

I sprayed of the patio……and I swept but need to mop…….

God I need a maid I was not meant to be a house wife …..

Maybe I can call work and volunteer to work for free…..

No that’s right I’m still mad at the unfairness of it all but I’ll get over it.……. I was passed over for promotion again. All I can say is that the maybe the person who was chosen needed the position more than I did and I’ll leave it at that……

Did I mention I needed a maid…….

Snakes, Braces and Beer Fest.

My recent house guest, 9.3 foot Boa Constrictor (official length), found a new home this morning. One of my co-workers took him away this morning, no more snakes in my Florida room. The dogs were happy to get their space back.

Elizabeth had her Orthodontist appointment yesterday; she now wears braces on her top row of teeth and she’s already broken two brackets, back to the Orthodontist tomorrow. I don’t think it’s anything she did the adhesive they used did not stick.

The orthodontist appointment for tomorrow at 10am interferes with my weekend. Fred and I planned to leave first thing Friday morning for Orlando. We booked a hotel room for 2 nights and tickets to Beer Festival, no children allowed. We will return home early Sunday, Fred wants to attend Chaney’s Florist grand opening. The manager is our new neighbor.

I cant wait to get out of town. I have work so much overtime the last two months I am completely burnt out. My nerves are a little fried, it’s rumored the announcement for promotions is to be made today but I don’t think that is going to happen until next week. I am fairly sure I will be passed over again but I still have my fingers crossed. I hate political intrigue and just not knowing what is going on……….

Look at what my husband brought home today!

He can not keep it. This Boa Constrictor/Python is over 7 foot long and thick. I'm guessing maybe over a foot in diameter. I called my friend Amy (she likes snakes) but she won’t answer her phone. OMG.............
