So um yeah... I haven't posted in a few days... there goes my perfect posting record for this year, haha. Somehow, I knew it wouldn't last. Oh well, heh. I blame it partiallly on the new schedule.

Let's see... did overtime last sunday from 8am - 7pm, then worked mon - thurs 9am - 8pm. was very lazy yesterday and today... and didn't work at all. Tomorrow I am going in from 9am - 6pm for some more overtime, then Monday - Thurs 9am - 8pm, Friday 9am - 6pm and Saturday 9am - 1pm. I am only doing 4 hours on Saturday so I can get things done around the apartment that I won't have time for or want to do during the week (like cleaning!).

I've been in the lead queue 3 times so far and it's been ok. Only have had 2 escalated calls to take, the rest have been questions. It wasn't nearly as hard or scary as I thought it would be! I have a feeling I'd be very good at it on a full time basis.

Things at work might be a little uncertain on the team front at least... My supervisor managed to get himself promoted to a new position effective 2/26. While I'm happy that he got the new job, I'm very sad that I'm losing my favorite supervisor there. So yeah, I should know more later this week on how that is going to affect our team and who we might be "stuck" with. If I do end up on a new team, I might not be team captain which will suck since it was so short lived. I'm hoping nothing changes except the supervisor. We'll see.

The walking thing is going ok. I haven't been walking as much as I'd like and that's mostly my own fault. I have managed to log about 16 miles so far since January 22nd when work started their walking tracker thing. 9 more to go til the first milestone.

Need to find time this week to get letters written to my little brother, mom and grandma. Got letters from all of them last week. I also need to email my other grandma back.

Got paid yesterday, and after my car payment and insurance payment post from checking account, filling up the gas tank, paying the payment on one credit card and taking out $50 for groceries, I had enough left over to move another $350 over to savings bringing me to $800 out of my goal of $1000. Once I hit $1000, I am going to start paying off my debts smallest to largest, and the first to die will be the Orchard Bank Mastercard. This will be able to be done either once my federal refund hits the checking account, or next payday. I cannot wait!

I also need to swing by Wal-mart in the next couple of weeks and pick up my little sister's birthday present before I go to Salina for her birthday party on the 24th.

But for now, I'm going to head off to bed since I am going to be going in tomorrow for the overtime.

Am home

Got home around 7ish tonight from Salina. Visit at mom's was good.

We went to Wal-Mart today, to get the rice cooker mom was going to get me as my birthday present. We walked in, got the cart, headed towards the home appliances. When we got to that aisle, we were searching and finally found the ONLY one they had... I decided I wanted to at least have 2-3 to compare and choose from so we headed over to Target. Target proved to be a lot more productive as I came out of the store with this rice cooker. I can't wait til payday so I can go grocery shopping and start using it! Though I have decided... I need to rearrange my kitchen a bit... the lack of counterspace is um... inconvenient at best.

I've also challenged Mom to hold each other accountable and start walking at least 3 times a week and start working our way back up to walking on a very regular basis like we started doing last year. The odd thing is, she and I weigh the same (we checked the scale this afternoon). So at least we're on the same starting point essentially weight wise. So tomorrow, I am going to start wearing my pedometer again. And I've started a walking filter. If you want to be in it, comment and let me know. I'd hate to subject anyone to that daily that doesn't wanna read it (hmm though it is *my* journal... haha).

I'm also going to be doing some research into some healthier recipes before going grocery shopping this weekend. At least I have the water intake thing going in my favor. I have a 64 oz mug at work that I fill up in the morning and drink it through out my workday. Then when I get home, I have a Brita water pitcher that I drink water from. Now I just have to motivate myself into eating better and even more motivation towards doing actual exercising and walking on a regular basis.

Talked to my Uncle Mike on yahoo messenger a bit this evening and then got to talk to him on the phone. It really made his day when I called him on Christmas and reopened the lines of communication. It's funny because I take after my Uncle a lot more than I do my dad.

Well, I guess I'd better start getting ready for bed. Gotta get up and go to work in the morning. Hopefully by the end of this week we will know how the shift bid went and what schedules/supervisors we got. It'd be really cool to get my old supervisor back.
