--Iowa has a meeting with asshole boss #2 this morning.
I wrote everything down on paper breaking down their offer at the beginning of harvest hour for hour and dollar for dollar. Either give him the time off or pay him the O/T.
--This company has lost 75% of its original staff. That’s not saying much when they’ve only been in operation for 2 1/2 years. Iowa is one of three guys remaining. Boss #1 is one of those three so that only leaves one other “worker”. And, the thing is, most of the positions they aren’t replacing or filling with candidates who don’t possess the skills and qualifications that the previous employees did. No one who is qualified is going to put up with the BS and accept the pay that they offer. End of story.
--My sister’s kids are in NC with their dad and step mom and my sister is off to Hawaii with a German guy. He’s a retired (yea, retired at 51...must be nice) scientist who came over here to work for Google. Sounds like she’s doing okay.
--We ordered an antenna from Amazon. It’s actually pretty big. It goes on the outside of the house/building. We’re just using those cheapy ones you stick in the window now and are able to pick up 3 channels. Hopefully this will get us 6-8 more and that will be sufficient. Neither of us care to have cable.
--Still just getting by with my hotspot for purposes of internet. We’ll eventually get something permanent but this is working good enough for now. We just can’t stream movies but it’s not like we’re watching anything right now anyway. Might as well save that expense every month for as long as we can.
--Got my last electric bill at the house! Woo Hoo! One less relationship with that crummy utility company.
--I made a double batch of banana bread because we had a big bunch of bananas getting way too ripe too fast. Put some of it in the freezer and gave a mini loaf to the older man that lives across from us.
--I put my scale in the garage sale pile but I’m pretty sure I’ve been dropping some weight. I can tell by how my clothes sit and I even had some make a comment yesterday. I honestly think 100% of it is due to getting my hormones leveled out. I am feeling so much better too.
