A Pointless Post

I have been thinking alot about this little blog.  Like everyday.  I come in here to check email and facebook and read a few blogs....then think I should do a post.  

I have been meaning to post something...anything... but honestly, I can't think of one thing to post. 

I could tell you that I love my new job but my feet ache at the end of the day. 

I could tell you that I am getting to know all of the other employees a little bit better every day.  I am hearing a little bit of their "story" each day....where they grew up, how many kids they have, their likes and dislikes.   And I am letting them in on mine.  They figured out I like to talk...turns out I'm good with customers because of that very trait.

I could tell you that the customers are so nice....really nice.  Well, maybe one was a little grouchy.

I could tell you that Will's apartment full of furniture is sitting in my dining room waiting to be loaded on a U-Haul trailer next Saturday.  It was supposed to be this Saturday but the trailer couldn't be promised before 11:30 a.m. and with this heat, that's way too late to start loading a 3 hours and then unload it and take stuff up to a second story apartment. 

I could tell you that I went to see The Help and absolutely loved it.  So well done.  It took me back to my childhood....the clock on the wall, the hats and gloves on the women, the cars.  It was heartbreaking and funny at the same time. 

I could tell you that I know all my teacher friends are getting ready for "meet the teacher" tomorrow and I wish I was there to help them.

But this is just the ins and outs of the dog days of summer.  Shift change.  Summer ending.  School starting.  Summer over.  New job started. 

I am feeling so blessed right now that I have a new job...and that it overlapped my last paycheck from the school system.  I know there are others out there with real problems.  So I will not complain about my feet hurting, feeling like the new kid on the street, that one grouchy customer, Will's piles of stuff in my dining room, or missing my teacher friends. 

Don't give up on me.  I haven't gone anywhere...just having the creativity zapped out of me in other ways right now. 

My friend sent me a funny video to watch this week.  Loved it.  So if you need a good laugh....go here.
Priceless expressions on the faces of these men.  And the subject matter?  Well, you'll see.


  1. Will make a point to visit you soon. You must keep a journal of those "grouchy" customers....they will make for some great blog entries....believe me I've had my fair share of what I call "crazy" customers....I could write a book on them. They make for great stories!!!

  2. Great day to laugh out loud-it's hilarious. I can only imagine that the heat has something to do with you feeling worn down. Maybe you need to visit the East Coast. Wait, we are flooding-I'll come there.
