A new Kitchen for Us!!! Woot!

Our new cabinets!!! They are far lighter than what we had before. We went with a light oak. Real oak, not that cheap pressed wood crap. The wall you see on the left didn't have any cabinets, and the fridge was at the end of that wall where you can see the side of what is now a pantry. In the center is an island that will be 4x4 ft when the counters are on with space to eat sitting on short bar stools. The empty space you see in the back is where the stove and microwave hood will be.

The new tile going down on our kitchen floor is travertine. It is a stone, but I have no idea where it comes from, or anything. Okay, now I've looked it up. A decade ago, Italy had a monopoly on travertine sales, but now it is coming from Turkey, Mexico, Peru and the USA. It is a calcium carbonate deposit from water. I love wikipedia!!!

Ho Hum

So, I'm at work. I have half the audit done. I realized after I'd already closed that section out and cannot go back, that I used the previous days numbers not todays. Arg! I wish that I had the passwords to go back and do a redo! They should give the auditors those passwords. Seriously!!!

I hope it doesn't mess up the home office part of the audit, but I think it will. Oh well. Its my mess up, I'll just have to let the gm know about it, so it can be dealt with.

I haven't been doing any knitting, writing or much of anything. Mostly I've been dinking around on the net and sleeping. I feel so tired all the time. I think it is mostly because working two graveyard shifts and then the rest of the week I am a day time person, it throws my system off really badly.

My cousin Jeron tells me that he got a sponsorship for his skateboarding. I'm very proud of the little booger!!! He's 12 years old and really seems to like skating. Who knows, maybe he will be the next skateboarding star!

The 1st paycheck!

I've pretty much already spent my first paycheck! Damn it!!!!

I've paid a bill, smog check, auto reg and......

I ordered an Xbox 360 with a 20gig harddrive!!!!

Yes, that is a video game console! I haven't had a new one of those in a long time. I still have my first generation playstation 2. You know, the fat one.

I also ordered Viva Pinata as my first game.

I can't wait til they get here!!!!!

Working graveyard after a funeral

Well, at 2:00 pm today was the funeral/burial of my uncle Jack. He was 85 years old. There was an honor guard and they did the gun salute with a trumpet playing taps. I bawled my eyes out.

I tried to get some sleep afterwards, but it just didn't happen very well. I ended up going to work in the same clothes I went to the funeral in. It was odd.

Work was okay, but I still can't get the audit to balance. I just don't get it. Even with other people helping it isn't balancing, so I know that it isn't me, but still it looks bad. Granted, it is only my third week and not all of my time has been spent working on the audit stuff. I hope it gets better soon.
