What a long weekend. Woke up early Friday morning and put in 4 hours of overtime, went and got the oil changed in the car after running by the bank to cash a check to fund my grocery and gas and spending money envelopes.

Saturday I woke up at 5:30am after going to bed at midnight and got dressed and left for KC by 6:30. Made it to where I was supposed to be after getting slightly lost right on time. I volunteered to work at a live event hosted by Dave Ramsey, and was supposed to be there at 9am. got through the intro/training and by the time the doors opened was already at the table I was going to be working at for the rest of the day. About 10 minutes after the event started, I got to go in and sit down and watch until the first break then go back to the tables... rinse/repeat for the 2nd break and toward the end. After the event, helped clean up and had dinner with the other volunteers. Finallly left to head back to Manhattan around 8:30 pm and again got slightly lost finding my way out of KC but I did manage to make it home around 11:00pm even having to drive through a few storms. It was lightning the whole 2 hour drive back to Manhattan and a few miles outside of manhattan is when the rain really started coming down hard.

Today it has been thunderstorming and raining off and on all day. I expect it will probably still be raining/storming tomorrow too. :)

Well, I guess I just wanted to get in a short post to let people know I was still alive.

[livejournal.com profile] mizdandylynn, I would have let you know I was going to be in the KC area if I had been able to fit in the budget more for being able to stay overnight. Next time I am up that way I will definitely let ya know ahead of time so we can make plans to get together again.

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!

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.
