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.

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 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.

Didn't do a whole lot... slept in til 11am which was kinda nice (even with the x-men themed dream I had last night).

Was going to go out to dinner with my best friend tonight but due to a ton of homework she had due tomorrow, we've made plans for Sunday night instead.

Am going to be going to Salina on Tuesday. Mom is taking me shopping for a Rice cooker/Veggie Steamer as my birthday present. Yay for new kitchen toys! :)

Emailed my dad back tonight letting him know my address and phone numbers (both cell and landline).

Also did a couple of loads of dishes and made a smaller batch of the Almond Poppyseed bread I tried to make the other night. The first attempt the other night failed miserably. I will know in the morning if this batch turns out ok. I'm hoping so because it sure would make a great breakfast bread.

I still have not finished ranking my shift preferences. There's 126 shifts for us to rank! I do have the top 25 or so done. Am pondering just leaving it at that... I'm ranked 38/194 and there's enough shifts in the top 25 schedules that I'd definitely get one of my preferred shifts... I'll probably work on it some more between calls tomorrow though.

Checked my comission today... in just the 2 days I've worked this month, I'm already at $52. Hopefully I will see another $5-600 month by the 31st.

Well, I guess I'd better get to bed if I have any hope of waking up to the alarm in the morning.

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 [ profile] vulpine137 and then go start making dinner. :)

So I really didn't do a whole lot yesterday. Kinda just vegged and played lots of AO.

Today, I was quite a bit more productive. Went and got a few groceries so I would have the stuff I needed to make the BBQ Meatballs that I'm taking to work tomorrow for our potluck dinner. Also got quarters, and did my laundry, cleaned the bathroom and did most of the dishes (still have the ones from making the meatballs to clean up, but most of the rest is done already). I think I am going to warm them in the oven in the morning before I put them in the portable carrier thing with the warm pack thingy underneath it.

So... Work tomorrow, off tuesday, but going to Salina to see Mom and the little sis (at least that is the plan), work Wednesday, Thurs and Friday, off Saturday, then start my new shift on Sunday. Starting the 9th, I will be working Sun,Mon, Thurs, Fri, Sat 10am - 7pm and off Tues, Wednesdays. Last week of training this week... as of the 9th I'll have my own cubicle and be out on the floor. And in a couple weeks, will be watching the next new hire class get their feet wet while they learn the ropes too.

I just found out via 1 broken glass that my dish drainer doesn't hold glasses on the side well when placing them on the side closest to counter's edge. So instead of 8 nice glasses and 8 juice glasses, I have 7 glasses and 8 juice glasses... oh well. :) I think I shall manage and at least I know not to use that side of the drainer anymore for drying my glasses.

I've managed to get the tupperware lids, one set of dishes, the silverware and glasses washed so far. Still have one set of dishes to wash as well as the rest of my bakeware and pots and pans.

I've also managed to unpack my DVDs and get them back up on their rightful shelf. Am pondering moving the shelf closer to the entertainment center but I think I will wait until I have the living room unpacked and all the boxes out of the way first.

Um... oops!

So it looks like another trip to Wal-Mart will be in order... I was working on unpacking the boxes in the kitchen, and I got the pots and pans and the bakeware, but somehow my actual dishes, silverware and glasses are still at Mom's. It'd be cheaper to just go buy a small set of dishes until Mom either finds mine or I can afford to buy some more. Need to get groceries sometime soon anyways, and fill up my gas tank and then I'm probably going to be quite broke until my first paycheck. At least I also managed to pay a couple bills and the rest wont be due til after I get my first check or right around the time I do.

[ profile] chuck_lynn called me earlier. :) Tomorrow we are going to meet up to get something to drink and visit for a bit before they drive on towards Abilene to visit a couple of the museums and sites there. I am very much looking forward to getting to meet them. We have been talking about meeting up for a long time now.

Mom called shortly after that and I told her about the missing dishes. I should have told her if she finds them, set them aside and I can come back after I get paid or something and pick them up. Maybe I will next time I talk to her. Mom is really excited about getting my old room back as her bedroom. She's been talking about all the things she plans to do as far as painting and decorating and such. My little sister talked to me for a little bit too. She really misses me, and I am sure it is a big adjustment having her big sister there one day and not there anymore. I lived there for almost 3 years this past time. I plan to write her when I can so she knows I haven't forgotten her and I know she loves to get mail.

My little sister had her very first softball game last night. She is playing in the 12 and under league, apparantly there werent any 10 and under teams this year, and as most of the girls on my sister's team are more like 8-10, they lost last night since the other team was more towards the 12 year old end. I told my sister as long as she has fun, it doesn't matter if she loses or wins. That's something I learned way back in 5th/6th grade when I played softball.

I'm not nearly as sore today as I thought I would be after the move. This is a good thing, although I'm not sure how well doing dishes is going to do since part of me that is sore is my hands. Need to finish clearing off the dining table of boxes so I can stack the dishes on it that need washed and dig out the dish drainer, dish soap and sponge and start tackling what I do have so I can at least get them cleaned before I put them away.

I also need to either find my cord for my stereo or find my computer speakers so I can listen to music again since Cox says they can't hook up my cable until the 13th. At least I have DVDs I can watch until then. I just hope they at least wait til I am home from work that day and dont come between 5 and 5:30 since I've specifically told them I work that day and will not get home until 5:30.

I'm pretty sure my digital camera is ruined. Was in the process of cleaning off my desk and packing stuff I wanted to keep that was on the desk into a small box, when I turned around and saw my water had spilled onto the desk and all over the digital camera. One more thing to add to my list of things to get when I have money again, I guess. :(

My aunt called earlier this evening. Apparantly she is having computer problems and from what I was able to gather, it's turning on, posting, and then giving her the option to either retry boot or go into setup. Joy. She's wanting me to come look at it if I do end up going to Wichita this weekend with Mom.

Well, it's bedtime for me... carrying 3 old 486s out to the car and unloading them at the DAV plus the cleaning and other stuff I did today just zapped the energy from me today.
krzy: (Default)
Supposed to get up to 95 today, and we're under yet another thunderstorm watch. Normal Kansas weather I guess, but trying to clean and pack while mom's a/c isn't working sucks. Esp with my room being the warmest in the house most days.

I was doing some searching last night and found out my step-brother has been released from Hutchinson Correctional Facility finally. I think I also found his current address and sent him a letter today. Yay for the internet. I just hope it's the right address. It has been far too long since I last wrote him or even heard from him. I've also written my little brother (half brother) and let him know of my new address as well. So hopefully he writes me back soon either here or after I have moved to my new apartment.

Speaking of the new apartment, need to get ahold of the landlord tomorrow. He said he would try to get the lease filled in and mailed to me so that I'd have it by Monday and it still hasn't shown up in the mail. I really want to get this taken care of since I will be moving in a week and 2 days.

Went and finally got the change of address stuff from the Post Office and picked up some 2 cent stamps since during my cleaning I found almost a full book of 37-cent stamps. I also have almost a full book of 39-cent stamps so it looks like I am set on postage for awhile, heh. I also got gas in the car I'm driving now and then went and picked up some boxes from a place mom used to work for. So now I just need to re-motivate myself and get them re-assembled and packed.

I did crap all today... Pulled a rubbermaid bin from under the table, dumped it out and put my books in it and that's about the extent of my productiveness today. I was just so totally unmotivated today for some reason.

Tomorrow I should be getting the car I'm borrowing from a friend of Mom's. I think once I have it I'll start loading up the things I'm taking across the street to the DAV and then drive them over to unload. That way I won't have to make several trips back and forth across the street. :)

Also, if the lease hasn't shown up in tomorrow's mail, gonna call the landlord and find out why.

Started the day by calling SBC to have my DSL and phone line set up to be turned on in Manhattan on June 1st. So I should have internet as soon as I can hook up my computer when I get there, but will prolly not be on that day til later that night after everything is unloaded and the bed is at least set up and some things are unpacked.

Then I came in and took my matress off my bed, and moved my box springs to lean in front of the entertainment center and spent the day cleaning under the bed and then putting the bed back together. I think that's all the cleaning I am doing today. Tomorrow I shall be going through the 2 plastic bins under my table and starting to pack them once that is done. And eventually, I shall brave whatever is inside the closet!! I also need to start hauling away the computer bits I know I will never use (i.e. the 486s) and drop them off across the street at the DAV.

Heh, my great aunt just called Mom's cell phone... asked her how she was then asked if I was home because she wanted to talk to me. I am amused. So while I was talking to her I made sure she had my new phone number and my cell phone number so she could call me directly next time. :)

I need to get a few letters written and sent out so family and such will have my new address and phone number, as well as do the change of address form online with the post office. Maybe I'll start the letter writing tonight since it doesn't take a whole lot of energy.
krzy: (bedtime!)
My best friend's sister graduated this weekend and is moving out of her apt at the end of this month. I emailed her landlord and left a couple phone messages earlier today and just got this in response:

Thanks for your phone calls. It is available and be happy to talk with you. The rent will be little more due to increase in Utilities and Propety Taxes. I'll call on Sunday.

Here's hoping rent is still reasonable. It's really a cool looking apartment, saw it on Monday last week but was undecided at the time. It is definitely bigger than the two places I looked at friday that were tiny.

Made some major cleaning progress today. got 2/3 of under my desk cleaned out and in front of the closet.

Need to call my best friend tomorrow and apologize for not being able to make it to her party this weekend and also let her know what her sister's landlord has to say.
krzy: (Procrastinate)
Have made a minor dent in the cleaning process... Still a long ways to go, but I know I will get there.

Tomorrow I go look at 6 places, and might even get lucky enough to decide on one. Once I know where I will be living then I will swing by the post office and get the change of address forms to fill out as well as call SBC to start the process of moving my DSL and setting up the other utilities so that everything will be all set up (theoretically) on June 1st.

Watching the rest of CSI then I'll try to motivate myself back to more cleaning.
