Another week gone by

Tigercats “In the middle of a world that has always been a bit mad, the cat walks with confidence.”


The weeks just seem to fly these days. I can't believe another week has already passed again.

Work has been super busy as always. Lots of holidays coming up all at once (Roshashana, Yom Kippur, Columbus Day) which always means a huge amount of planning due to schools being closed, arranging alternate delivery days and trying to make everything work out. I think I have it somehwhat under control now so we will see what happens next week. :)

On top of that big changes for the company are also coming on the horizon.
We are shutting down our plant operations and won't be producing/packaging our milk anymore.
(click on the link if you want to read the related newspaper article http://news.newstimeslive.com/story.php?id=75252&channel=Local)
They have signed a contract with Dean Foods which is a huge dairy company (they have locations all over the country)
They will be producing and packaging our milk for us starting at the end of October.
So the people in the plant are going to be laid off.
The company is trying to be as helpful as possible, re-training anyone that is willing to work in other areas and trying to place people with other companies wherever possible. 
It doesn't affect me directly and all in all it's a very good thing for the company.
It's just more change coming and I don't always like change.
Plus change usually seems to mean more work.
But then again more work also might mean more responsibilty and that usually means a raise. So we'll see how all this plays out in the long run. :)
A little part of me is also excited about it. I do like new challenges and look forward to see the new products we will be able to carry. It will be a good thing for our customers.

Managed to answer a bunch of my emails today but still need to write quite a few letters.
Yesterday I received two early birthday presents in the mail which made me very happy. My parents sent me the new Kuschelrock CD. It's a 2-CD compilation of love songs/soft rock. I am listening to it right now and enjoying it very much. Also sent along some money which will be fun to spend. Trying to figure out what I want the most and what to spend it on. Choices, choices. :)
The other package came from my long-time pen pal Charmaine in Malta. She sent me some sweet things. Will have to write her a thank-you note shortly.
Well, that's all for today. Hope you're all. Will try and post more often. :)
