Blaahhhh...

I HATE working Saturdays... I've been doing it for a year straight now, and it doesn't get any easier. Especially as it is 4 hrs... in the middle of the day... I think I've had Sharon work maybe 3 Saturdays for me in the past year. I work fulltime, but we're open 10-5:30 Tues-Fri & 10-2 on Sat during Jan, Feb & March. April-Dec I actually work 10-5:50 Mon-Fri AND 10-2 Sat. When you take out my 1/2 hr lunch during the week that means 32 hrs for 3 months and 39 hr for 9. I'd probably hate getting up earlier too, but if we were open say 8-12 then at least I'd still have half the day to plan something else to do. As it is I always feel like I'm getting home at bedtime if I have an errands or plans after work.

Oh! Then there's the fact that any crops in the area are always planned for Saturdays. I am about 97% digi now, but don't own a laptop. I also only go to 1 crop a year now that the LSS closed. Guess what?!?! I found out yesterday that the crop moved from May 5th last year to... March 29th this year!!!! I've been watching for ads on Newzjunky where they posted last year to make sure I signed up as I could take the day AND get paid this year... no ads... nothing... yesterday I'm perusing some classifieds and found it listed among area activities?! Say what?! Did you actually want people to know about it, or did you think with no LSS in the area word of mouth would actually work? So I have to decide if I want to go alone 'cause my niece can't go with me, AND if I want to be jerky enough to ask my coworker on Tues if she can cover Sat. OR, if I just want to miss out on the first 5 hrs of a 12 hr crop (9am-9pm)... Oh, and I forgot to mention it is the same exact day that my niece's aunt on the other side of the family is holding an all day crop in their town from 10am-10pm... I could take Krys to that one, but she has to be home by 5pm...

Ok, enough of that rant... Jay called Thurs night. It is most likely the computer for the car. He said he never had to replace one in a Cav before, but then, he didn't realize that my wheel well cover was missing. So in case you missed that PSA in Feb - Don't EVER listen to someone who tells you th plastic cover inside your wheel well is not necessary. It is what keeps all the water and dirt and salt and ice and CRAP in general from getting into your wiring and computer!!!! Jay said the wiring harness was corroded right into the pc. He managed to clean it off all the pins for the pc, but wasn't sure if a new harness would actually fix the issue. He MAY have it done today...

No LOs to share today 'cause I'm STILL working on ADSR 7. This sucker had better be good when I am done! I have it about 90% together at this point, but I'm thinking I may have to move some stuff around 'cause I'm not really sure it has enough white space to be considered CLEAN. Maybe I should just make it 2 pages! LOL Nothing in the directions said it HAD to be one page... Clean is just really not my style - especially not with 3 photos... With 1 photo I may have been able to pull it off easier, but 3 photos just takes up more space... You are not going to want me to post my credits for this LO here. I am listing every single item seperately to make sure I have the right number, AND use no more than 2 items by any one designer. I think at this point I am still missing 2 stitches, 3 buttons, 1 random element, and 1 gem/bling item.

I have added labels to my newest posts, and am slowly working my way backwards. The links are near the top left, and do NOT have a heading above them. These should allow people to quickly flip back to other posts for LO or QP info! :)
