Babbling on and on

This has been a social weekend for me, which stresses me out some. We had company staying for the entire weekend. The boarders A (Jay's friend's boyfriend) and T (his brother), plus A's girlfriend and a friend of hers. They're fun, I'm glad they came, but it was a bit of a full house and I need some alone time now. On Sunday night we expected that all 6 bedrooms would be full, so Jay and I cleaned out the computer room. And then his parents didn't end up making it here till this morning. But at least we got the room cleaned up, it was a big sty. Jay did most of the cleaning since we only started 20 minutes before I had to go to work.

I'm starting to like this landscaping company job. It's relaxing compared to my other one, although that sometimes leads me to wander around looking for things to do. And I'm starting to feel slightly less useless. If I was more comfortable with running the Bobcat it would probably help. Unfortunately, there's not really a good way to practice without loading an actual vehicle, so I probably won't get a whole lot better any time soon. Oh well. I should have lots to do with entering landscape designs into the computer, so at least I won't be bored.

It's nice working outside, but I wish the weather would warm up some. Saturday and today I froze. It wouldn't be so bad maybe if I ran the Bobcat, because the little boy who does said he was broiling. Must be nice to be a guy, or in good shape. I'll have to try that some day. The second one, not the first.

I've worked there for 5 days now, and I had my first person ask for a deal today. Dude, I've only been here 5 days and the owner is out of town, I'm not giving you a deal. Unless you can guarantee me a new and better paying job after I'm asked to leave. I did give them $5 off on a vase they bought, but the owner was okay with that because it came with the shop. Sometimes I'm lucky, things work out. I just don't want to expect those things, because they're not guaranteed. Especially if you're me.

Speaking of jobs, I need to start applying again soon. I don't want to work at the housekeeping full time after the summer is over. It's too hard on my body, it's bloody monotonous (to put it nicely), and my cleaning partner has a line on a new and easier job so she'll be quitting soon too probably. I've discovered that I can no longer work with other people there, my partner has spoiled me for it. She's too efficient and we work too well together. Working with anyone else now makes me jittery and confused.
