Not Feeling Well

 Hi friends, I am feeling nauseous tonight and kind of sick.Mr Red is probably to blame, Also I was very upset to read a dear friend of mine had some trouble with a troll in her journal, it makes me so sad when I hear things like that, I will never make this journal public because I would'nt handle it well at all if a troll attacked me or the people I love.Makes my PMS mood worse, Grrrrrrrrrr, I am glad I am off work tommorow in case I still feel sick.I hope I do'nt.I hope you all have a good upcoming week, If Cold Case was on in 3 hours I would go back to bed, but tonight's show looks really good, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

And another one bites the dust

Hi friends, Ugh I am in the mood today , but I have a perfect excuse, Mr Red is due for a visit any day now.When I went into work today, Lydia asked me if I could work Sunday for her 10 - 5, I was like sorry I ca'nt.I felt like saying "Ya know last week during Easter when you were in Texas, I worked plenty for you then" Am I wrong to feel a little resentful that she got the week off and I did'nt ? Oh yeah and when I went in today to pick up my paycheck Crystal who was just hired two weeks ago was telling Bret she was quitting, Oh boy , let's see, 1, 2, 3, 4, people now who have quit since the Beast began working at our store.Wow she better get busy and start hiring some more people quickly.I asked for my birthday off which is not this Thursday but next Thursday April 10'th and I gave her 3 weeks notice too but watch her put me down to work anyway that day or deny me that one day, I'll just call in sick then , whatever I do'nt care, it's my birthday, why should I have to work ????????? Anyhow hope you all have a good weekend, Angie there is some snail mail coming for you so be looking next week in your mail, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

The Beast and the Police

 Hi friends, hope you all had a good Wednesday.Well I sure got a surprise when I came into work today, the San Mateo Police were in the office talking to the Beast.I was like "Whoa" I am dying of curiousity and I do'nt think it was about a shoplifter because we have cameras in my store .So yeah that was my excitement of the day, that and this lady who is a huge pain in the ass was trying to pull a fast one and return a stolen umbrella instead of the one she had bought.Bret caught her and the Loss Prevention guy happened to be in our store today so yeah she got in trouble.I have dealt with this lady before and she is a huge pain in the ass so I am hoping she wo'nt be back at our store again.My brother and I took mom out for dinner tonight, it was nice, tommorow I am working 12 - 5 , hoping my day will be beast -free since it was today for the most part, Have a good Thursday everyone, Cold Case is on tonight at 11:00 p.m. on TNT, Oh my goodness I meant to tell you guys too about a funny story I read yesterday in the San Mateo Daily Journal, the San Mateo Police were chasing this woman last Saturday who was involved in a hit and run and she was trying to elude them and drove her car into the lagoon and these two police officers had to dive in that dirty filthy water that ducks and cranes and seagulls swim in and rescue her, can you say ugh ????? She was then taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation. I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Slap me , I'm coming to

 Hi friends, OMG I had the worst time sleeping last night and my eyes are feeling the pain today.I tried to sleep in a little today since I did'nt start work until 11:00 a.m., The Beast was opening today but Robin, Andrew and Bret were all there so my day was pretty - much beast -free.I took Debbi's advice and was civil to the Beast and she was civil back so I guess until I leave that is the way to go.I have'nt heard anything from Torrid but it is still pretty early too.Cyndie called today and I answered and she was like "Oh are you feeling better?" I was like "Uh yeah thinking I was before you called "She was like "Oh I'm so glad you are feeling better" Gag me with a spoon, what a phony, deep down I know she could care less if I was sick or not.She was such a bitch to me when I first started working at World Market and I will never forget that.I am working again tommorow and Wednesday and Thursday, I was hoping for a beast -free week but Melissa is opening all this week, well at least the worst day of the week Monday is behind me now, yea !!!!!!!! Have a good Tuesday everyone,  Oh by the way last night Gina ( Motoxmom) surprised me with a phone call, Gina it was so great talking to you last night, I loved hearing from you :) I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Thank You Mandy and a good Thursday

 Hi friends, Thank you to Emmi for the wonderful and awesome tag above, hope you all had a good day.I enjoyed a nice beast -free day at work today This  olderlady I waited on today was so nice, my iced tea got knocked over and fell into my wastebasket and she bought me another one, Awww that was so nice,  but before I went in today I turned my application into Torrid, keep your fingers crossed for me.Tommorow I plan on playing hooky from work, I do'nt care anymore, lol.The beast ruined my week so one day of me not being there wo'nt kill her I'm sure.I would like to say a huge "Thank you" to Mandy ( Hugsdoodlewacky") for the package with all the cute kitty surprises in it, thank you so much Mandy, you made me smile today, more mail from me will be heading your way soon, also "Thank you" to Sharon for the awesome postcard that came today, I hope you all have a nice and relaxing Friday, I know I will without having to be around the Beast tommorow, Missie you are in my thoughts tonight, praying for you and Nicci, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Late Night Thoughts and Moving On

 I really should be in bed now, but who cares, lol. I filled out my job application for Torrid tonight , which will hopefully be the new store I will be working at.Here is the website for Torrid. It will be hard to leave World Market after so many years but I think for my health and well -being I need to, I know I will cry saying goodbye to some of my co-workers.I really love some of them as much as I love all of you.It will be hard, I read a few weeks ago when Jorja was on the set of her last episode she sobbed uncontrollably on her last day, I imagine though all her co-stars hugged her and comforted her though, they were all heartbroken when she left the show back in November,  but much of the strength I have is because of her being my favorite actress and role model and if she can make a change in her life, so can I.Please say a prayer for me I get the job at Torrid.I'll be turning the application in tommorow, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

OMG where do I Begin ??????????

Hi friends, Today was so crappy I do'nt even know where to begin, but when I had trouble getting out of bed this morning and getting myself out the door I should have known better.I woke up with a stomach ache - a combination of Mr Red coming and nerves too.The Beast was there of course, I wanted to confront her about why she gave Lydia this week off but I froze up and could'nt do it.I started feeling nauseous at my register and told the beast I was'nt feeling well.Well guess what ???????? She forced me to stay anyway for the whole day, what a damned heartless bitch !!!!!! If that's not a good reason to quit I do'nt know what is, she let Crystal go home last week when she felt sick and Kristina the week before, I think now that Steph quit , I am her new target to bully.The day got worse as it went along, this old grouch came to my register and was extremely rude to me about a soda that was'nt ringing up right.I had to have Dave come over and adjust the price on the drink and the old guy goes "He knows more then you do" What a rude old goat, I could'nt wait to get him moving on, this other older lady I got got all pissy because the customer before her was loading up her stuff for too long and started whining to me she was in a hurry, sighing I paged Robin for a Service 20, Boy was I glad to leave today, I even picked up a job application for another store, I think it's time to leave World Market, I am not about to become The Beast's new person to bully, hope you all have a good Tuesday, I'm off tommorow so I know I will, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Confronting The Beast

 Hi friends, hope you all are having a good Saturday.I am considering playing hooky from work Monday, I am just so pissed about the thing letting Lydia have this week off , but I get denied, what crap !!!!!!! I am going to confront the beast when I go back to work Wednesday since I am off Tuesday and say "Yeah I could'nt help but notice that Lydia got this week off" I am dying to know what her answer will be, probably some smart - ass remark, this is a big step for me because I have trouble confronting people, call it a flaw if you will, guess I have been stepped on in the past by some, I have trouble defending myself, always have, always will, Anyhow hope you all have a good Sunday, I will be seeing my friend Debbi tommorow, that should be fun, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Utter and Complete Bullshit !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Hi friends, I was pissed beyond words today when I went into work to pick up my paycheck.Next week when I was supposed to go to Vegas  the week before Easter that the beast was rubbing in known also as Blackout Period, I am working 4 days, however I noticed Lydia got next week off, uh what the hell ??????? I get denied for my week off but yet Lydia gets next week off to go to Texas , how is that fair ?????? The beast was telling me some bullshit two weeks ago about how everyone would be working next week and how nobody else would get time off, what a load of crap, I am so mad right now, excuse me while I stick my head in the refridgerator and scream !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I guess the beast is playing favorites or some crap like that.

I'm Still Here

Hi friends, I'm still here, thank you Lisa Jo for emailing me and asking if everything was ok, I love you so much for caring,  I just have'nt felt much like journaling lately.My life is pretty boring and I'm not happy about my work situation right now.Part of me wants to say "Screw it" and go to Vegas anyway next week but I know for a fact my ass would be fired for defying the Beast but I am very disappointed I ca'nt go to Vegas, I was really looking forward to going.I have been feeling really drained lately, I come home exhausted and depressed from having such a bad manager.I have always known a good manager makes all the difference at work and now I am seeing how lousy it is to have a bad manager, I dread going into work on days I know she will be there, I see how none of my co -workers like her and it makes me so sad.How did this happen at my store which has always had such a great reputation for good customer service ? Maybe it is time to find another job, but at the same time I have been there a long time and have come to love some of my co-workers alot, saying "Goodbye" would be really hard.I am thankful tommorow and this weekend I'm off work.I am so grateful beyond words to have all of you in my life, I do'nt know how I would get through all this crap at work without all of you and your support, Have a good Friday everyone, , Donna you are in my thoughts, Miss you Angie !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love You All Lisa XOXOXO

Early Morning Meetings = Ugh !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi friends, hope you all are having a good Sunday, that kitty's face says it all about my early meeting this morning, I tried to get some rest last night in my nice new bed but I think the anxiety over the meeting disturbed my  sleep, I ended up sleeping one hour and then begrudingly had to drag my ass up at 6:00 a.m. for the meeting, everyone was there looking sleepy, the meeting was mainly about upcoming changes at our store and customer service, I felt like busting up laughing when the beast was talking about customer service because she is pretty damn clueless in that department, but since the district manager Cyndie was there too she had to put on a big show in front of her, what B.S.,  I had to struggle not to fall alsleep during the meeting, it was sooooooooo boring, I'll be heading back to work in a few hours since I'm closing tonight, I hope I do'nt miss Cold Case on at 9:00 p.m. tonight on CBS, Have a good upcoming week everyone and do'nt worry Spring is on the way, I am so ready, Lisa Jo and Angie, I'm sending sunny vibes your ways to melt all that snow, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

A Nice Beast Free Day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Hi friends, I had a nice peaceful day at work today without the beast, Ah it was so great without her today, I hope that if she gets fired soon for being so rude and uncaring we get someone decent to take her place.I bought myself some red roses this morning and some baby's breath at the florist after work and bought an awesome vase in my store to put them in.They look so pretty on my dresser, I love the music we play in my store, Robin told me it was satiellite radio, do any of you have satiellite radio ??????? Is there songs on there that you ca'nt get elsewhere, I'm just wondering.I am working a long day tommorow, 8 hours, wish me luck, the beast will more then likely be there, what fun, Not !!!!!!!!!!  I found out tonight that a good friend of mine is coming down here in April, Ted was one of my neighbors when I lived in Pacifica, He always treated me so kindly and I love him very much.He is like the dad I never had , but always wanted.I am very much looking forward to seeing him again, he has'nt been down here since he moved to San Diego 6 years ago, I promise I'll take pictures for you guys of Ted and I, he has a heart of gold and he is a wonderful person who is so easy to talk to.I hope you all have a great Thursday tommorow, On a happy note my mosquito headache seems to have vanished , Thank God !!!!!!!!  Thank you to Terry Ann for the great tag below, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Drifting off to La- la land and Hurry Back Angie

Hi friends,Thank you to Emmi for the awesome graphic above,  hope you all had a good day.My staying up late last night to catch that Cold Case episode at 3:00 a.m. is catching up with me, I am getting sleepier by the minute and slowly nodding off.Work was pretty boring today and the beast was around being her beasty old self. My co-worker Kristina who was ringing in front today was sick at work from her night of drinking the night before, I gotta give the girl credit for going into work, if I was sick to my stomach I would'nt even consider going into work, she looked terrible and really pale, I made her promise me if she started feeling too badly to tell Robin , Kristina ended up going home at 11:00 a.m. and I took over the front of the store, Tommorow I am working again and Thursday too, hopefully one of those days the beast will be off, I am really getting tired of her b.s. and her stupid - ass rules.There is this meeting we are having at work this coming Sunday at 7:45 in the morning, I do'nt even feel like going frankly.The last thing I want to see bright and early on a Sunday morning is the beast.Angie I hope you will be back online tommorow, I am missing you big -time, come back please !!!!!!!!!!!!! Huge thanks to Amy for bidding on the awesome 2008 CSI calender for me,It was at the Post Office today waiting for me to pick up, Thank you so much Amy, I love the calender so much, great pictures this year, felt sad seeing the Grissom and Sara picture for June and Jorja's picture for July, she is missed !!!!!!!!! Your money order is on the way to you :) I hope you all have a good Wednesday, pray my work day goes ok, I dread going into work now, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Ugh Monday

 Hi friends, hope you all had a good day, the beast was her old beastly self to me today at work, she made a big fuss about me bringing an iced tea to my register today saying from now on no drinks would be allowed at the registers except for water, what a bunch of bullshit !!!!!!!!!! I calmly told her the tea was for my headache and she just gave me a blank stare.The day was pretty uneventful, the beast was in the office hiding most of the day so that was good at least, hope you all have a good Tuesday, I feel a little better then I did yesterday, I did buy some Vitamin B- 1 today to take everyday because I read in a magazine mosquitos will find you unappealing if you take vitamin B-1 so that is what I am going to do, hope it is safe to take one everyday, anybody know about that??????I'm getting up to watch Cold Case tonight at 3:00 a.m., I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Hopelessly Devoted to Cold Case

 Call me crazy, lol but tonight at 3:00 a.m. in the morning on TNT will be the pilot episode of Cold Case called Look Again, when I watched it the first time back during the summer I was impressed and in love with a new show, so even though the time  is not the greatest tonight and I am working tommorow I'm getting up to watch it tonight, I love this show, it's devotion I'm telling you, I would'nt get up late to watch many shows, but this one is always worth watching,  I highly reccomend that those of you who have never seen this show give it a try, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Sick and hating mosquitos !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Hi friends, I guess with you of you that have been sick in J-land it was bound to hit me sooner or later.I got bit by a mosquito last weekend and have been feeling sick ever since.I did some research online and I found out that I have West Nile Fever which is a mild virus that some people get after being bitten by a mosquito, it is alot like the flu, body aches, fatigue, headache, and when I read last night the fatigue can last up to 36 days I was'nt too happy about that.I felt ok yesterday but today I had to lay down awhile because my head was killing me and my legs are aching a little now,  some days are better then others, I never thought in February, almost March there would be mosquitos around , but I guess with all the rain this winter , it would make sense.I have had this virus before and it sucks !!!!! Some days it totally knocked me on my ass, so I urge you all when you go out on hot days to wear mosquito repellent or or citrus lotion and long sleeves, trust me you do'nt want this virus, I will do my best to comment in journals and visit you all , but I am hoping that I start feeling better soon, I never thought I would be looking forward to March ending, but now I guess I am, I hate mosquitos so much !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I Love You All So Much Lisa, Please do'nt worry, I'll be ok,  XOXO
