Happy Labor Day

Hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day. I hope those who labor are getting some rest.

Some have the day off. Though my boss told me I could have the day off, I still had to come in for a little while to get some reports ran before tomorrow since it is the first buisness day of the month. He should have known that.

Thanks to all who have worked hard and sacrificed your time to make this country grow and prosper. To the ones that can not find a job, I pray you will find one soon. For those that are disabled or can not work, I hope you have the strength to helping others through words and wisdom.
I have a sour place in my heart for those who "can" work, but refuse to work, only to live off handouts and free money from the Government. I want even get started on that.

We live in a country where everyone has the freedom to work and take time off to rest. Some countries do not have this luxury. It should never be taken for granted.

"Work is not a punishment, it's a reward". 

Now for you reading pleasure, here are some fun work facts about me:
  • My first job was in a fish camp cleaning tables.
  • I quit my first job to chase a boyfriend around on prom night. Since I had to work, he took someone else and boy was I jealous. 
  • When I was little, I wanted to be a trashman when I grew up.
  • What I always wanted to be is a nurse. 
  • The closest job I got to nursing was working for a foot doctor. Lasted 3 weeks. 
  • I have only been fired from a job once and that was due to lack of experience.
  • The job I hated the worst was selling waffle cones at Carrowinds.
  • The most unusal job I ever had was a painter for new construction homes.
  • The hardest job I ever had was mill work.
  • I’ve made a living with the job I currently have. I am greatful but tired.
  • I have been at my current job for almost 26 years now.
  • I have never called into work sick.
  • I’m late most days but no one notices.
  • I haven’t found my dream job yet. 


  1. I have used quite a number of sick days. The only time I wasn't sick, my car battery died and I couldn't get my car to work.

    1. I dont get sick days. Only 10 days of vacation and I have to schedule those.

  2. Love the Entry, you expressed my sentiments nearly exactly. Oh yes, and I enjoyed the LIST! Very interesting....

  3. I love your work history. What fun. I especially like that after 26 years you are late everyday and no one notices lol
    Have a great week, Lisa. xo Diana

  4. You must be a wonderful employee since nobody notices your late :) I remember when I was little I wanted to be a nurse too! My shortest job was only 3 days at Dunkin Donuts when I was 19 lol. The manager was a jerk and tried to switch my shift after I started. I told him from the start I could only work afternoons until close. Let's just say the turn over rate was high at that location because his attitude towards the employees was so bad.

    Stay safe during the Hurricane Dorian. It's been crazy here in South Carolina the last few days. Praying for everyone in the hurricane's path.
