Long time, no blog
It has been a long time since I last posted a blog entry. Since then I have been promoted at work (not as the second supervisor as was planned, but as the ONLY one), had my oldest daughter home from the Army for a few weeks, been diagnosed with migraines *whee* and assorted other stuff.
The promotion is a good thing, as it comes with tuition reimbursement (nice), and a small pay increase as well. I am essentially doing the same job as I was before, but now I write the schedule, interview potential employees and do performance reviews. We’ve been struggling with staffing since the school year started because several employees are in school and aren’t available as much as they were over the summer. That should change soon with a new hire and a transfer from another store.
Recently I started looking around for a set of double twelve dominoes. It’s not easy to find them, especially since I like the white ones with black dots, not the white with colored dots that are apparently popular now. I just think that dominoes should be black and white (or white and black) and shouldn’t be colored. It is supposed to be easier to tell what number you are looking at, but I don’t think it’s all that hard to tell a 10 from a 12 to begin with. While I was on my quest to find the dominoes I kept seeing Mahjong sets and decided it might be nice to get one of those as well. I have always enjoyed playing Mahjong on the computer, and it would be really cool to have a real set of my own. I think it would be fun to learn how to play the multi-player version as well as the solitaire version I am familiar with. Maybe I can even find someone who would be interested in playing with me 🙂
Now I have a whole list of things that I want to purchase (if I ever decide to indulge myself). A nice set of double twelve dominoes, a mahjong set, an i-pod, and a nice digital camera. I know some people would argue that I already have a digital camera, but I honestly don’t feel that it is mine, since it is not mine to keep, only mine to use. (provided I ask to do so) Perhaps I will indulge myself now that I have a little more spending money… We’ll see…
