So, corporate is now handling the schedule.

I found out yesterday that I am supposed to work every Saturday through the end of this month.  In other words, my two regularly scheduled weekends off?  Not so much.


Which is why I am filling out applications on my day off, when I should be relaxing.  Of course, Mother Nature decided it should rain today,  so walking to Carrboro and going thrifting is out.  Grrr.  Well, at least I can run Food Network in the background while I type out my work experience over...and over..and over.

If the rain lets up, I may run up to Flyleaf, order the new Charles DeLint book (first adult fantasy novel in 8 years!!!!), and sign up for their adult summer reading program.  It's like the ones I used to do at the library as a kid (there are even stickers involved!).  I think the public library has one, too...I'll have to take the bus out there on Monday and check it out (yeah, since they're screwing me on Saturday, I get Sunday and Monday off.  Which would be sorta okay, if I didn't have to pay for a cab on Saturday).

Speaking of libraries, I found out that the one in Carrboro does a stitch and bitch once a month.  I have been needing...something else in my life besides work and sleep.  And I need to be around fellow fiber arts types.  Who knows?  I might even be able to find someone who wants to teach me how to knit.  (I can do the basic knit stitch, but my brain can't grasp how to purl)

I'm sorry about your Saturdays! Stitch and bitch, haha...that's funny. I'll have to tell my mom that, because she goes to a knitting group sometimes.

I read and enjoyed this one when the e-book first came out a while back.
