    I apologize for not being around much, but I have had ten days of work and personal hell!

    This started last Monday with a "fire drill" at work to get an impossible amount of work done in 2 weeks.

    Can you say 14 hour days, as in 7:30AM to 10PM - and 8+ hours on Saturday! Throw on top of that a text from Lindsey (younger daughter / in Grad School at UCLA)

    "I don't think it's a big deal, but we are in lockdown in my classroom with an active shooter on campus in Engineering" - her major and her primary focus :surprise:She has been a TA there for this school year and someone is gunning down professors? Yeah, nothing to worry about there...

    In the end, she was safe - and all was well... except for our nerves. The OT continues for the immediate future, but the uncertainty continues...:no:

    OMG I completely forgot that's where your daughter was at school when I saw that on the news ... how awful for you :( I'm so glad she is ok.

    I think you win this week's "worst week" award hands down.

    School shootings have become a parent's worse nightmare. So, so sorry that you had to go through that, PSP.

    As far as the OT goes .... Cowboy up! :lol:

    I just got back to my Florida "home" after another 14 hour day According to Florida law, I am 2 hours into overtime for the week - yes, that's 42 hours in 3 days :surprise:

    Looking like another 20+ hours the next 2 days! Can you say "Cha Ching!"? :dollarsign:

    Man, I remember those days when I was working 90 hrs some weeks. It was hard to get through it at times but boy oh boy it sure was nice to get that paycheck with the OT on it!! I was the assistant controller/cost accountant for that company and cost accountant for the one I worked for before that one and when it was time to take inventory, I was front and center and ran that whole operation from start to finish so it added up to quite a lot of OT for me. Then there were a couple stretches of months that I worked 2 jobs to try and catch up on the bills and that was exhausting. Working 8 hrs in my accounting day job and then delivering pizzas from 6 pm to midnight or so 4 or 5 days a week. There ain't no way that my body could get through that sort of thing anymore in my ripening old age with a screwed up spine, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome symptoms etc.

    So, more power to ya PSP!! Don't spend all of your hard earned money in one casino, ah, I mean place! lol

    And, sure glad as is well with your daughter, that must have been gut wrenching to get that text message from her. Sure wish this BS would stop. All of it. Let's all pray on that today together. It couldn't hurt!

    Peace out,
    Leslie

    Wow @jumboscampi ! Working 2 jobs is tough, but when you have to pay the bills, you have to do what you have to do.

    Only once in my life have I ever worked 2 jobs. It was about 30 years ago when I was 9 months pregnant with my daughter. I worked at Payless Cashways (a hardware chain) and at a local car wash. I was at Payless Mon through Fri and worked the carwash Sat and Sun. Did that for about 6 weeks until I popped my bun out of the oven. Oh, and I cashiered at the carwash. I wasn't out there vacuuming and wiping down cars. ;) lol
