Hello Friends

May 13th, 2007 at 05:57 pm

Oh my--I am not too good at writing on a regualr basis. I apologize. Just so busy now that I am working a bit. I am still liking my job and find it very interesting at times. Saturday I had to train to do many jobs as I am the only one around on Saturdays. It was fun ---yet hard work. I felt very responsible to have been given so much so quickly. So far so good. I am looking forward to getting my paycheck with my name on it. I know that might sound lame or silly but it is important to me.

Shopped at the WalMart super center on Friday. I liked it but then I found it was so large it almost overwhelmed me. They have the best prices in town...no doubt...I just felt over over overwhelmed by how large it was for some reason! I got my oil changed while I shopped...that was easy and really helpful. Do you do your regular shopping at WalMart? I am on the fence right now if I am going to keep on going there. I will see. The prices were great....maybe the trip will be better next time.

I have to go to a funeral this week. My friend with cancer passed away on Weds. I am glad she is heaven. I was glad I saw her last week and glad they published a beautiful photo of her in the paper. She was a stunning lady with a pretty face and smile.

I hope you all had a nice Mothers day. We went to the mall and purchased outfits for my sons graduation. Shoes, dresses...you name it. We ate in the food court. For the most part we had a nice day. It felt great to get some things purchased and checked off my list.
It is like preparing to go to a wedding. Just lots of details.

I filled up my van this weekend with gas. It cost me around $75. I am so glad I work so close to home. It is awfully expensive anymore. Everything seems expensive to me and at times it is depressing. I feel grateful for what I have. Yet it seems scary to think too far into the future. Being frugal is so important. I tend to spend on the kids and not so much on me. Isn't that the way it is?

It has been a good weekend....have a good Monday!

    glad you are enjoying the job, it is nice to work at a place that you like. I know Wal-Mart has the best prices but I refuse to shop there, it is overwhelming; too crowed for me
    Happy Mother's day and I am sorry to hear about your friend

    The trick to getting around in a super WalMart is that you start in the toy department and catch the train over to sporting goods, where you get in the canoe and paddle down the river over to lawn and garden, where you take a ride-on lawn mower over to the grocery section...with a swing through automotive where you have them drop you off at the cash register... LOL You do get used to the size and location of what you want after awhile.

    I am sorry for the loss of your friend and glad that the job is going so well.

    walMart is huge! I love the idea of using in store transportation! One couple was using walkie talkies to talk back and forth....it was kinda funny. It is also a wonderful marketing plan. Do they even offer small bskets to hand hold to shop??? Fill up the cart with what nots and charge it. I just do not feel 100% great shopping there for some reason. I almost walked out depressed. I did stress as I shopped and felt not at all at ease as I pushed my way thru it all.
    Food for thought. I need to dig a bit thought wise and think about grocery shopping. Have a good day everyone.

    I'm glad you like your job! That is half the battle of having one!
    SuperWalMart is overwhelming! It is quite a workout when you go there! Nothing worse than forgetting an item on the other side of the store! But once you get the layout down, it will be easier. And you can skip many areas of the store you may have hit this time.
    I feel the same way about prices of everything these days. It almost seems like there is no way to get ahead! Gas, food, clothes! I agree that it does get depressing!
