I've been getting so drained at work lately... I keep anticipating the time when it will all just go away, and yet it doesn't...

My Lockport store is currently the #1 Wireless zone store for April (out of several hundred), and last month we were#2. It has been SO BUSY!

Which of course is good for profits, but I'm finding it to be a hard time juggling sales, and trying to keep these guys going long enough to keep their other tasks up. I walked into the store Monday morning and it was a DISASTER.

I placed a $35,000 order because we were so very low/sold out of stuff. Seriously - that is a big order.....

I love working in Lockport because it makes my check much more bearable, but holy hell does it kick my ass.

Today I'll be in Springville, which has still been a profitable store, but less chaos. A little relaxation, I guess. Except the admin lady called in, so I get to do her job too. BAh.... AND as a result, I don't get to go to the dinner tonight. BALLS!

Its so hard leading these kids into battle....

oh... haha on another note, (e:lauren) got a ticket yesterday! haha

um... yeah! That sounds like a whole lot of crazy. If you can sneak it in, try and relax a little.

I Bought a Japanese Juniper plant.

it looks sorta like this

the intention is to prune it into a bonsai

like this:

I intend on doing this tomorrow. But I don't have any bonsai pottery. Nor do I have gloves. Which could suck as my hands already have red prickles on them.

That sound so fun. I think I would enjoy having some bonsai trees. Keep us posted on the pruning, I am curious to see how it goes.

Is this like a prop for the story you are mentally writing while commuting?

A couplea thingies

Firstly, I was unable to get my shift switched at work so I can't make it to Tuesday. Sorry folks.

Today is my only day off this week. I'll end at probably around 50 hours and I can't wait to see that delicious paycheck. Overtime AND commission. Peaches.

Ive been writing a story in my head in the hour and a half a day I spend commuting to/from work. Its super complicated. And rather sci-fi. Kind of a Harry Potter meets Journey to the center of the Earth.

Here is just a snippet of the craziness I have developed. A Bonsai Bridge. Yes, 6 trees meticulously grown and groomed over thousands of years to become a sort of bridge over a waterway.

Yup. When I say it outloud it sounds reaaaaallly nuts. :)

Every time I start to write a post, I realize two things.

1. I really have nothing exciting to share.

2. Anything that I could share would involve a lot of back explaining to fill in all the gaps that have occurred because I have not been sharing. I get overwhelmed and sign back out.

Thus I continue to stalk.

Well then it would be Like a Henry Rollins Spoken word performance. Some of his stories tie in with other stories. Or he will be telling something and then go back and explain some part of it.

Would the appropriate term be "lurk"?
