Still have time off

I still have a buffer zone of two full days from the sweat shop of Amazon. I just had my second cup of black coffee and now am in water mode. I am kinda watching the local news for the weather mostly. It will be warm today,  but then getting cooler again. Maybe snow on Sunday. bleh. 


I am not looking forward to going back to work..but I know the drill by now. Ill consider it exercise now. I did cut out drinking the colas again at break periods. I do eat the random bag of cheetos. I like the flaming hot cheetos. I am sure the cheetos are not good for me. 


I was drinking a Diet Coke at breaks..but my stomach felt kinda raw and uneasy afterwards. The carbonation made me feel "perky". But I realize that Diet Coke or any cola or Gatoraide or Iced Tea has sweetners in it. On a cellular level, my body has to filter out all that crap, so why put it in my body to begin with? Water keeps my stomach calm. Ill just drink the boring water.


Now that I used up alot of my PTO and UPT (Paid Time Off) (Un Paid Time) hours....I really can't afford to take anymore unscheduled days off. So it will be solid work till I get more UPT on July 1st. PTO will only be given out until May 29th. Then that will be it for the rest of the year. 


I guess I am sticking with Amazon. Maybe after I get off the write up on April 27th, I can change my job function there to something less repetitive and monitored by the minuite. I would not mind working with the robots. Fixing them trouble shooting them etc when they malfunction. There are robot jobs open now, but I am currently under a write up for quality and that disqualifys me till April 27th.

I hope the robot job is still there in two weeks, it does sound like a better job. it maybe one of the jobs that is harder to fill so it may still be opened when you are ready.
I have been drinking water daily for about ten years now, it gets easier but I don't really see any of the benefits that I can say it's the way to go.
have a nice weekend

I love water so much that I've been given doctor's orders to drink less of it I was getting charly horses in my legs from washing the potassium out of my system. I love it so much that I can taste differences in the water I drink and feel vaguely surprised when people call it, "Boring." Still more proof of just how weird I really am? Letting my freak flag fly. . .

Steadying support while you hold the course, Chris. Even dream jobs turn to drudgery, sooner or later.

Did somebody mention robots? How 'bout some Robot Wars. . .

Your weather sounds like ours, a tease of warmth and then back to shivering.

Hope things get better with work. Ive been struggling with my job lately too. I think the illness makes things worse, but also makes things feel worse than they are. Keep your head up and keep going.

Caffeine is my drug of choice. Haha And I absolutely hate water. Some days I notice myself consuming next to no liquids. Gotta work on that.

Arfie, smiling at your freak flag. I salute you. :-)
