So far today, I have done some dishes (some many times each because I reused them while doing the next thing), prepared a few meals to put in the freezer for easier cooking on days I have to work, printed an email mom sent for the genealogy notebook I have, put my load of whites in the washer, dug out the blender and wiped it down and washed it, talked to my little sister on the phone, and added a recipe to the meal plan I made yesterday.

And hmm, I really should get some good cooking userpics, heh.

meep.

So yeah. I'm alive... and I was actually rather productive today.

I did my grocery shopping today. I had a lot of stuff on hand already so really I just had to pick up some necessities like laundry soap and minor ingredients to complete some of the meals I have planned out for the next couple weeks.

Got home, put away the groceries, and started catching up on my dishes. Didn't quite finish, but I made a huge dent and can see my stove again which is good since I plan on using it again in the very near future. I just never seem to have the motivation during the week to keep up with my dishes, so they usually end up piling up all week. :\

I also cleaned my coffee pot and got it ready to use tomorrow. Managed to also get some laundry done as well.

Thursday night when I noticed my paycheck had posted to my checking account, I scheduled the final payment on my 2nd Capital One Card. This means I now have permanently gotten rid of 3 credit cards and their balances. I've also managed to pay in full the $500 I agreed to pay for the car I had from May to November of last year. And June's budget is looking great so far. I will probably be posting more about that soon in the [TMMO] filter.

For now though, it's bedtime since the start of another long work week is about 9 hours away, and the alarm is going off at 7.

So let's see... woke up at about 8 this morning because I knew the people who've been working on the bathroom were going to be arriving sometime between 8am and 830am and I figured it would at least be better for me to be up and round before they showed up.

So, I ended up watching the newest episodes of NCIS and CSI:NY this morning and then around 11:30, I left and headed out to run a few errands. Ended up getting the tags renewed on my car, got rent paid, went by the bank and got cash for groceries, gas, spending money, etc... stopped and got some lunch and then while I was just about to head home, I found out my ipod nano had arrived, so I ended up driving out to the facility and picking it up from the front desk. I've decided I am going to keep the 8gb ipod nano and maybe save up for the 30 or 80gb one for more storage at a later date, but for now 8gb should be plenty.

After I ate, I started messing around with the new geek toy and getting it set up on the computer. Transferred over today's Dave Ramsey show podcast and went for a walk around the neighborhood. Ended up walking about a mile which put me at 1.5 miles for the day at that time. Afterwards, I came home, rested a bit and then headed to Target, where I was going to get a case for the ipod nano but they didn't have any I liked. Instead I braved Wal-Mart and not only did I get a case I wanted, but while I was there I decided to go ahead and get my grocery shopping out of the way too. Stopped and grabbed dinner on the way home, and just kinda bummed around chatting online as well as playing a few rounds of Literati on yahoo games. I did notice that once I got sat down for the night, I had logged a total of 2.75 miles today. go me!

Now? I'm listening to it thunder and watching for lightning as it's thunderstorming! :) It's supposed to thunderstorm most of tonight as well as Strong thunderstorms are expected for tomorrow. Yay for thunderstorms!

Was pretty lazy this weekend, except for today. Today was a lot more productive. Most of yesterday, I finally started watching Heroes thanks to the episodes being online at nbc.com and about 5am this morning I realized I should probably get some sleep. Woke up around 11 and finished watching the rest of the episodes, did 3 loads of dishes, took out the trash and did 2 loads of laundry. As you probably guessed, no I didn't do any overtime this weekend. The lazy streak won out this weekend unfortunately for my paycheck. I am going to get back on track though and do at least 5 hours on Friday and Saturday.

I've also been very slack on walking as I really didn't do ANY this week. :( I have decided I need to take a different approach as I never seem to be motivated to just go walk. I also need to get back on track on drinking more water. I guess if I go about it by taking baby steps into it, then the smaller victories will help keep me motivated.

Well, I need to go get my whites out of the dryer and get ready to get a shower in before bed since landlord will be starting to redo the bathroom tomorrow and putting in a new shower.

An update

So, let's see... I'm still alive. That's always a good thing.

Found out that yes, we will be moving to different teams at work, we just don't know who our new supervisors will be or where we are moving to yet. I guess we'll find out this week. It has been extremely busy at work too. No room for time off at all the rest of the month. In fact they were asking people to work overtime Friday and Saturday. I was going to work some Friday but due to circumstances that happened Thursday night, I didn't go in. I did do 4 hours Saturday. I haven't decided how my OT will work for this week. I have to be in Salina on Saturday for my baby sister's 9th birthday party. I will probably end up pulling a 10 hour day on Friday, and then start working 5 hours Fridays and Saturdays possibly more depending on how much energy I have at the end of each week. At least 10 hours of OT each week though, that's my goal.

Got another 100% quality score last week. That's #6 so far. I also found out that every 5th 100% you get $25 added to a debit card, so four more to go before I have another $25. It also means $20 cash so far this month from my current supervisor. He set a goal for each 100%, you'd get $10 cash. This month has cost him $70 so far and it's not over yet, heh. My sales have kinda sucked the last week or so, but I am still at $450 in comission so far this month. I just hope the next week or two go much better. Would be nice to have another $600+ commission month. Especially for a month that only has 28 days in it. I need to keep up the 100% quality scores too though because for March, April and May I need to be in the top 10% for Quality scores in order to earn the Specialist position in June. Hard to believe in just 4 more months I'll have been at Alltel for a year. What a long way I've come since January of 2006.

So yeah, as to why I didn't work OT on Friday... Thursday night, I managed to hit a 2 foot tall wooden post in our driveway and cracked my front bumper. After I looked at the damage on Friday, I decided to have it looked at for estimates... the damage is cosmetic only so I am holding off on fixing it awhile longer and will be putting money back out of each paycheck til I have the cash to replace the bumper.

I figured I would at least try to do some OT in the afternoon but that quickly got nixed right after my power supply died and I tried to get out of the driveway to go get a new one and couldn't because of the ice/snow still in the driveway and I couldn't get up the incline from the parking area to the actual driveway. So I parked and came back inside and waited til later in the evening and tried again... was able to get out of the driveway and off I went to the computer shop to get a new power supply.

I did manage to put in 4 hours of OT on Saturday. I probably should have done some today, but I was lazy and slept in til 9:30 (waking up from what I think was going to end up being a nightmare). Got up and did a load of dishes, took out the trash, got yesterday's mail. The only thing I got was my little sister's letter, where she was nice enough to send me her birthday list. She had 5 things listed, but had numbered the list from 1 to 13. At the bottom she wrote "Please dont get all of these things, just one." *laughs* Funny thing is, the gift I'm getting her isn't on the list at all, but I know she will still love it.

So hmm... other than work what have I been up to? Well, I spend a lot of my free time after work listening to podcasts of the Dave Ramsey show and hanging out on the my Total Money Makeover Online forums and chat room. I have managed to get a letter written to my little brother. Still owe Mom and Grandma a letter and my other grandma an email. I should probably also email my uncle and let him know I'm still alive too.

I've got two filters started... one for walking and one for my path to become debt free. If you want to be added to them, just let me know.

So I got home tonight and started out real productive like. Came in, did up a load of dishes and then vacuumed the Kitchen, Hallway and Living Room. I think tomorrow I will be cleaning and vacuuming my bedroom. Need to still take out the trash also tonight, and cooking dinner might not be a bad idea at some point. :)

Work was ok today. I didn't have to escalate any calls, so that is always a good thing. :) We did our little new hire graduation ceremony around 4pm and then got to go out onto the floor to start setting up our cubicals. I finally saw my schedule entered into ESP, but it was not the right schedule, so my supervisor is supposed to be getting ahold of workforce management to get that fixed. I absolutely *hate* 30 minute lunches, and that is what they have me working according to the schedule. They put it in as 10am - 6:30pm and it is supposed to be 10am - 7pm. Hopefully it is fixed before I have to work on Sunday.

I also managed to call and set up an eye appointment for the 18th of this month. I have not really had an eye exam in far too long and now that I have vision insurance again, I think it is high time I get that taken care of and probably will be getting a new pair of glasses. :)

I also need to finish my little brother's letter and get it mailed so he doesn't start thinking I forgot about him.

Ok I might post a bit later with more stuff but for now, I am going to post a meme I stole from [livejournal.com profile] vulpine137 and then go start making dinner. :)

So got home from work tonight and heated up some leftovers for dinner.

Ran a couple missions in AO, and then unhooked my tv, vcr and dvd player, took them out of the entertainment center, moved the bookcase out of the way and then moved the entertainment center so it is on the opposite wall it was on. I can now see the TV while I'm on the computer.

After that, I went for a 20 minute walk.

Click to see the route I walked )

Ended up walking .96 miles tonight. I especially like the area I live in because 2 of those streets were an uphill incline while walking which makes it a little more challenging.

Once I got home from my walk, I moved the bookcase into a corner by the couch and finally unpacked my books and got them put up on the book case. (Yes, it's sad, I only own 1 bookcase of books).

And now, I'm working on a few more missions in AO before it's time to grab a shower, do up the few supper dishes there were, and get to bed.
