I'm leaving in an hr, been here since 6:30 this morning.

The gov't has me for an 8 hr day, if you go over sometimes they tell you that you donated that time. But, if you fight it you can usually get comp time which is better than over time since comp won't put you in a higher tax bracket!!

I like my job but there's times when I just don't want to be here and today was one of them!!!

My first day back to work went by smoothly, co-workers were happy to see me. I'm so used to my job that it usually goes by without any stress. Of course having a vacation next week does make it even easier.

All you lucky dogs that are cruising out of Miami soon:

The cab rate from the airport to the cruise terminal and downtown (and almost anywhere else) is set by the city.

The fare is clearly posted in the window and is per cab with no surcharges for additional passengers.

The bridge tolls are also included.

Now, if you get an honest cabbie tip him well because the port area is a zoo.

I am not going to argue with you. I am very lucky with the job I have right now. I get paid more here than I did when I lived in NJ and worked in Manhattan. Pluse they pay for my family benefits in full, with a company verhicle and expense account...which covers the cost of fuel as well.

Thanks Rinker for the advice this is my first time cruising out of Miami so any advice is appreciated. Croooozin what type of work do you do if you don't mind me asking.
CQ Buddy Boy lost his first tooth at the dog park today. I saved it to show my hubby. He asked me if I planned on making a necklace of puppy teeth. That is a little gross so I threw the tooth out.

Kat,

I am an Operations Manager for a building supply company. I must say, I never thought I would be the type of person to work in an office but here in Florida you have to do what you have to do to make it. When I lived in Jersey, I worked for UPS in the diamond district in Manhattan. I had 2 armed guards with me all day. One stayed with the truck and one came with me. So it was nice, I had someone to talk to all day long . When I moved to Florida I was shocked at the wages and could not get a transfer from UPS due to union things...Thats what I was told any way. So after some job bouncing I got "lucky" and found this job. But I am happy at my job, I am making more money than when I was at UPS, and I get to talk online to you guys.

Here I am !!!!

No problem with the coffee this morning -

it's one of those days where due to weather you'd rather be home - it started raining after midnight here in Ks and is still raining and according to the weather report this morning we can expect this all week with snow this weekend!!!

TM - Yes I do believe it's Long Island Iced Tea Tues - we need to help you get ready for your upcoming trip to Hawaii!!!

CQ Buddy Boy goes to the doggy park regularly cause I like to sleep at night. Maggie won't play with Buddy Boy (or any other dog), so I load both dogs in the car and off to the doggy park for an hour or two. I come home and Buddy is nice and mellow. He attacks the cats less that way. Maggie is the offcial doggy park greeter she sniffs each dog as it enters then walks away.
