Soooo Tired!
I feel like I've been going non-stop for way too long now. I don't think I mentioned in here that I got a part time job...a really PART time job. Basically filling in for bartenders at the pub when needed, maybe once or twice a month. But this last weekend they needed me, and I needed to get trained. So I worked 4 hours Friday night after my real job, got up Saturday morning, went and saw Spidey III with the family and then went back to the pub to work 8 hours.
Sunday comes along and the fucking birds in the trees outside my bedroom window woke me up at 7am as usual. I get up and start my day. Goth Girl daughter has a project due so we work on that then later that night I work on a projext of my own for work.
Have I mentioned it's SPIRIT week at work? No? Well spirit week is where departments think of a theme and decorate the department like that, then there are activities and food and so on. Lots of fun, but rather exhausting. So while watching Without a Trace on Sunday night I made a sign for our theme (Mardi Gras). Monday I was up and down ladders and standing on desks all day decorating.
Then I went home to make Monkey bread and Beer dip for the Fat Tuesday Pot Luck we were hosting the next day. Come home Tuesday night to make Chili for the chili cook off the next day for one the other departments lunchtime activity. (Jalapenos...yummmm)
Tonight is really the first night I've come home, made dinner for the girls and had time to actually catch up on blog reading and just relax.
It all starts again tomorrow though. Goth Girl has a band concert, Friday 2 other kids have a band competition that they don't even leave for until 8:30pm. and I will have to pick them up around 11:30pm. Then the next morning we have to leave the house at 7:30am to drive to Columbus for my aunt's memorial service. We are driving back that same day. Then dealing with my mother on mother's day.
God's help me, I can't wait until next week when things get back to normal. I am so glad I've finished my Masters, if I was still in school I think I would hae had a nervous breakdown this week!

    Oh quit your whining and fix me a Seven and Seven barkeep!! Good Luck with your full plate Raven. Cheers...

    The only way you are getting a seven and seven while I'm behind the bar is if you can tell me how to make it. And I already checked...no WIR there. Sorry.

    WOW! Bar keeps make serious scratch when it's busy. You can get really proficient at manipulating some guy who's looking into laying down a Benja-tip at the end of the night. That's what I'd do anyway, but I'm not a lady bar keep. Damn!

    Nick - I wish, this is a private club and it never gets real busy there. Case in point last Saturday I had 4 people for tips of $13 for an 8 hour shift. I do it more for the fun and learning how to mix drinks. Then maybe I can get a real bartending job somewhere.

    Geez Raven, who do you do with all of that free time! ;^)

    Sky - WHO do I do? Well if that is the question, my husband when he's home.
    And what the hell is free time...I don't think I've had any real amount of that since 1992.

    Well, the question really was supposed to be what do you do, but I am sure we all appreciate the update on your personnel life!

    Sorry about that, paging Dr. Freud...

    Good luck with mom on mother's day. I was realizing this week that this is my first mother's day without one. I'm missing her!

    This time of year is brutal, isn't it? End of school year... projects, events, finales, more events...

    A good friend of mine in CT bartended part-time and now owns the place! She knows more about the town and the town folk than anyone!! She rarely tells, though. She's a professional.
