I'm just as bad as ever at not updating regularly. Much is the same. Got a bit of good news. Will get to that. First, the sheer volume of customers we're getting at work now is crazy compared to a couple years ago. Most of the time I don't have to argue with Lori/Theresa about getting at least 20 hours every week. It still makes me angry when I see people who don't do as much or haven't been here as long get more hours than me. It happens every so often, particularly with Kari, and it pisses me off that they show so much favoritism. The other day Lori comes by the register and another cashier Joy has just grabbed a cart to go start facing and is just telling me what she's doing when Lori goes, "Now that you guys aren't doing anything, one of you needs to start facing, you know, like Kari does." I wanted to bash her face in. I mean, really?

And I find it funny because two nights ago I closed with Kelley, and there was no trash bag in the oops station outside. Also, none of the cleaning solution bottles had been filled for days. It was my first day back working from two days off in a row. Kari closed the night before. Hm, I wonder who didn't do all their closing duties like she's supposed to? I said something to Kelley about it and did all the closing cashier duties in their entirety. Like I do every time. Then I came home and vented to the Husband. I felt bad immediately afterward because I can tell from the look on his face when I'm telling him stuff like this that he feels guilty for not being able to support us without me having to work at a place I hate. And I've put in applications all over the place in the past couple of years, believe me. It sucks.

Enough of that. It isn't going to get better anytime soon. The good news is that Romex was officially cancer-free on the 17th of this month. They got the results of his scans back, and we're all very relieved and happy. Now we have to have a party! Romex and Jana are going to a Ren Faire this weekend, so it'll have to wait til the next one. I'm hoping that it can be a group trip next year, and those of us who don't care for Ren Faires can go do something else. So there. Also, we have a few ideas for simple day trips that we'll have to go over when we're all together next.

In other news, I got my Night of Hunters CD, and I love it. It's the best Tori album for a good long while. Among my favorites so far are "Job's Coffin", "Star Whisperer", "Snowblind", and "Fearlessness". I like more of them, but those are the best so far. I have to memorize them before the concert! Still so revved up for that, I can't wait. I've just finished re-reading all the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice, but I'm so bored with the other books I'm trying to read. I got Strawberry Panic, and it is three novellas in one big omnibus. The writing style is so ridiculous I want to give up. But I love the story, so I'm trying to get through it. Ugh. Also, The Passage by Justin Cronin is slow-paced. The Husband really liked it and gave it to me, but I don't know how motivated I am to finishing it. Well, that's all for now. I'm tired of typing. Haha.
