Saturday, May 10th

Work – 6am to 2pm

A usual day, nothing really special happened.  I managed to stay pretty busy preparing for a couple of changeovers that were to take place not long after 2nd shift got there.  Either way, it was 8 hours of time and a half.

Stopped to get gas on the way home.  Yikes!  I filled up last Friday and I was at about 1/4 tank when I stopped after work.  I’m trying to top off every week so I don’t run low and have to get gas in the middle of the week when I may not have much money.  I’m happy to have switch jobs but a 20 minute drive to work is a lot different than the 7 minute drive I had at my last job.  I used to be able to go 3 weeks on a full tank.

Home – 2:30 pm to 5:30

Came home, shower and shaved, got in my PJ’s and sat on the couch with my laptop.  That lasted maybe 15 minutes and then I crashed.  Sprawled out on the couch and slept for a couple of hours.  The nap felt great, I spend most of my evenings fighting sleep, I feel very refreshed right now.

Supper at Culvers

We met Skyler there for some supper.  She gave her mom some flowers and a gift card for Mother’s day.  I was shocked.  The only other time Skyler has ever bought her mom a gift for anything is when I told her she needed to and I only did that once.  It was nice of her to do so, I could tell it meant a lot for Cheri.  It would be nice if Skyler would come to our Mother’s day lunch tomorrow and as far as I know, she isn’t doing anything.  We’ll see.

Stopped by Martin’s Supermarket on the way home, had to grab Chris a toothbrush and also some sausage for the cowboy beans I have to make for tomorrow.  Also hit Arby’s and grabbed a small something because Culver’s didn’t fill me up much.

When we got home, I browned the sausage and cooked the bacon and onions for the cowboy beans tomorrow.  In the morning, I’ll throw it all together for the party.  Cheri usually makes them for all of the family get togethers, but being as tomorrow is Mother’s day, I make them this one time a year.

Been sitting around on the internet and watching TV since we then.

Stats today

  • Worked 8 hours (52 hours this week)
  • Supper at Culvers and Arby’s
  • TV (only new episodes (to me) listed – Revolution, Criminal Minds, Growing Up Fisher Chicago PD and Chicago Fire (DVR)

The nap kicked my ass, it’s closing in on 1am.  I need to go to bed.


  1. We love Criminal Minds but I missed this last episode. I need to see if I can watch it on the Tv

    1. If we miss an episode, we can usually catch it on demand, we have that with Comcast but I don't know what you have. We love that show but man are there some freaky people on there.
