Yes, it's been another long week - the trend continues. Upper managment decided that our routes will not go out on the 4th of July. You would think that I would be happy about getting a day off but of course it's not quite that simple. I remember last year's nightmare surrounding the weeks leading up to it pretty well. (making sure all the customers are aware of the changed schedule, reminding everyone and trying to keep an eye out for any issues) On top of all that the new girl I was training didn't show up on Friday (no call-no show). Maybe it's a blessing in disguise but of course short term it means that I am down a person.
Well enough bitching for now. Since I had to work Saturday I was off on Tuesday so I spent the day cleaning and re-organizing the area for our new kitchen cart. As you can see our cat Dinah was very eager to help me out. :) To see the final result click here.
I still feel like I am very behind on my mail. I am really sorry and apologize to everyone who I owe a letter. I will try and catch up as soon as I can.
Yesterday we made a trip to the library and I got two new books: "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger and "The Birdcage" by Marcia Willett. I think I am going to start with "The Time Traveler's Wife" in a little while.
Mail Update: Since the last update a letter went out to: Carmen/Malta, Lotte/Denmark, Liana/NY, Tizz/Denmark and Celia/MA. So far on Monday letters are going out to: Eunice/Malta. Received letters from/still owe replies to: Nina/WA, Jessica/DE, Sarah/Canada, Kimber/Canada, Alex/Germany and Tiffany/OK.

The cart looks nice.
And I hope your work time surrounding the 4th of July goes smoothly. And as far as the trainee who didn't show up, maybe it's good that you won't waste any more time on her. It's nice to have employees you can count on.
