Today was just one of those brutally exhausting days; physically and emotionally.  Work was brutal.  Too few people; too much work.  When someone leaves, most times they aren't replaced.  We just suck up the additional work and do the best we can.  Things were slow after my helper left on disability.  I knew it wouldn't last.  The last two weeks have been brutal and no help in sight.  I hate to ask for help but I would take it now if there was anybody to do it.  Everybody I work with is feeling the pressure.  I hate when things get out of control.  It's exhausting beyond belief.

So I came home and played with animation.  LOL..and you are subjected to it.

My car is going back on Wednesday.  The service dept. manager was totally shocked.  He has an asst. manager who inspects all the work before it leaves.  He simply could not believe that the rusted old brackets were welded back on to the new stuff.  He said there were 12-18 new brackets in the kit.  I knew this because I checked it online before I took it down there to get an idea of the cost.  He is going to put it on the rack and check the whole system and have it rectified at no cost since I already paid for the kit and the labor for the job to be done right. 

Joey's car came off the insurance today.  He is planning on giving Jiffy Lube a two week notice tomorrow.  We'll see.....he wants to quit but also wants to save a little more money until his seasonal job at the cemetery starts in the spring.

I'm off to read some journals because I'm super tired.  Take care all and thanks for your wonderful comments.

I hear ya.  What a day.  I sure hope that tomorrow is better.  Things are the same at my work.  If someone leaves...it's too bad for those who are still there because there is no one to take over the work load.  I will pray for a better day.
