I had to work yesterday. Usually Saturdays are pretty quiet and this was no exception until.... About 3:00 p.m. the fun with the kids started. Running in and out. Shouting. Throwing things. Fighting. Eating and drinking. They were asked to leave. Then they were told to leave. One girl said she didn't have to leave because it was a public building. No one could make her. I told her the police would make her and she said she wasn't afraid of the police and she would like to see me try to make her go out the door. They left and then came back with sandwiches and lined up against the front desk, using it as a table for their sandwiches and trash. I asked them to leave and they turned around with their backs against the desk, still eating. They finally left with a shout of obscenities.
I have been feeling like I shouldn't leave the library. I love my job and my co-workers. Suddenly I remembered why I SHOULD leave. My stomach was tied in knots although I would never let them see it.
And then there was the woman who came in and screamed because I put her on computer #8 instead of #7 and then went to Boss and yelled at him because she is looking for a job and how dare he give her a time limit on HER computer. She needed it the entire day. What was wrong with him? And where was the employee to sit with her the entire day helping her out? She didn't know how to work a computer! What kind of a place was the library?
We won't mention the teens in the side yard with their huge dog who was pooping all over while they were destroying the bushes along the building. No, we'll just skip over that part.
I am SO GLAD this part of my life is almost over.
I had every intention of going to a different Bible Fellowship church this morning. I even mapped out the route and decided what to wear. Then the migraine hit. I ended up sleeping the whole morning away and woke up around 12:30 p.m. At least the headache is almost gone. I know I am stressed about what is going on at church and that probably gave me the headache.
Life is not fun for me right now. So I have to make it fun. I think I will take this afternoon and clean the kitchen. I will decorate. I will take pictures. I will make things nice for myself -- maybe even bake a dessert. Life is what you make it, right?
In the meantime here are a few pictures you might enjoy.
|I made a little pumpkin patch on my table. I still have a few more to add, but I think it's cute.|
|Look what's happening at the apartment house in back of me. I thought they were finished, but now they are adding a deck for the second floor. That will be nice for them.|
|My autumn tote bag broke so I took off one of the sides and taped it to the refrigerator.|
|I do love fall.|
|Here's Miss A. She's getting so big. And she is about to have a baby..... SISTER! In about 5 months that is.|
Hope you all have a nice Sunday. It's back to work for me tomorrow. At least it's only 49 days to retirement.
