Back to work

Well I finally started back to work at Yavapai cafeteria yesterday. It was my fist day back since October 30th. 23 days off work & I really didn't do much in that time.
I didn't get most of the stuff done that I wanted to when I started that little 'time-off'. In fact, if you were to walk in my room now you would think it was a disaster.

Obviously my laziness has nothing to do with money or time...guess you can't pay me to do things or give me time off to do them either. So how in the world do you motivate someone to get something done? Something that they just don't want to do or feel to over-whelmed to do.

Christine Kane - Right Outta Nowhere

I found this song while I was on which lead me to look it up on youtube.

Now I was on coolworks today, because I was looking for info about jobs in Alaska.

I have been daydreaming about going to Alaska for awhile. Usually I check out pictures here on coolworks & different job sites but always whimp-out about sending in the job applications.

Well right now I am on a sorta LOA at GCSR for the next 2 weeks....while I have the time off, I am totally cleaning out my room. Decluttering at its best. By the time I get done, I figure it won't be so difficult to travel

up to Alaska.

I am making a physical folder for jobs in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Talkeetna, Girdwood, Seward, & Coldfoot Camp, Crows Nest.

I have found plenty of jobs available up North starting next May...Bus Person, Host, Cashier,Barback, Cocktail Server, Tour Desk Clerk, & Front Desk Clerk. Now I have never had a tour desk job but figure there is a first time for everything.

This desire to see Alaska isn't going away, and I ain't getting no younger. So I might as well head up there while I can. Yes the rent will be more then I pay now at GCSR, but I really think it's time for me to get out of the rut I seem to have found myself in. Besides who next May I will have lived here at GCSR for 4 yrs, which is the longest I have ever stayed in 1 spot. So maybe I will like Alaska enough to stay for 4 years...course not in 1 spot because some jobs are only open during the Summer. But some other jobs are open during the Winter if you know where to look; and luckily I do.

So 2011, will be my year to share Alaska stories with everyone


Well I just checked my bank account online. My paycheck is in...all $297.00, biggest paycheck in awhile. Good thing seeing as I am on LOA for now.

expenses that I foresee this month are:
Liz's birthday
Art show~frames & mats
Laundry soap

I might edit this later & add more to this blog

Well I have been out of work since Saturday afternoon...and today is Tuesday.

Sunday was halloween, so I mostly did halloween stuff. Yesterday was my day to
rest & relax...mainly sleep.
Today I will start my long list of chores:

Today/Tuesday~Laundry (organize dresser & get rid of unwanted clothes or clothes that just don't fit in the dresser cuz I have way to many clothes). This will take awhile as we only have 1 washer & 1 dryer working now for the whole building.

Wednesday~Books (oganize bookshelf & throw out unwanted books). Today is also flu shot day.

Thursday~Pantry area (wash dishes, organize food stuff)

Friday~start on closet

Saturday~Grand Canyon Marathon

Sunday~Closet day again...or I might go to Flagstaff with Brenda, and if I do then closet day will be moved to Monday.
