This is Where I Work

Where has all the time gone?  Monday, I still hadn’t gotten my schedule, so I just worked Mindy’s.  She is the manager and just fills in when needed, mostly 4 until 7.   She has been doing things in the office while I worked in the front.   As the week progressed she would be doing other things like cleaning the pool, going to do other stuff, but still available by the phone.  I’m getting a little more comfortable with the processes.  I still am uncomfortable with figuring out which site to put people in.  They finally got the schedules done.  I will be working Friday and Saturday, starting next Sunday.

                This is where I work, reservations, some groceries and gift store

                       I may put some of my art in the store on consignment.

I did go back into Waco to check out the COE  gate keeper possibilities, they are mainly for couples because they are long hours and have to be bid on, as do other positions as well.  I got the paperwork to read.  I also wanted to check if Hobby Lobby had any linen paper, (no such Luck), but they did have the watercolor block which I prefer.  I also picked up a couple of things that I forgot at HEB.  

Another reason to go into Waco was to get a manicure and pedicure.  After four months of dirt, dust and wearing sandals I wanted a bit of pampering.   There is a nail salon near HEB on Waco Drive called Nails Time.  They just do nails and some waxing.   This is the first time that I have had a pedicure while getting a massage.  The chairs have their own foot bath and source of water, with drain.  (no carrying a tub of water out to dump.)   I don’t know his name, (who did my Med/Ped) or any one else’s, they didn’t speak much English.  the pedicure included getting my legs massaged and with the manicure, my arms massaged. I was so relaxed,  I will definitely will go back again.

Ted will be arriving tomorrow afternoon from San Francisco.  We will be going up to Fort Worth to visit Sandi and kids, as well as one of his former H. S. Teachers, who lives near there.  We may come back the same day, but may spend the night.  We figure that out later.  He will help me fix a couple of things here, but is mainly here for vacation.  Oh BTW, I  want to wish my daughter, Sandi a very Happy Birthday.  hummm , which one is it?  I won’t tell!
