Since I'm always complaining that I'm bored at work I'm finally getting some more stuff to do. Kind of. It seems a bit half assed while it's getting going. BUT I got to go on a training! And it wasn't even in Davis. We have an office in Salinas which is by Monterey. The girl that I'm going to take over part of her job (one tiny part of her job) works there. So I got to go down and spend two nights in a hotel and play around in my off hours. I decided to take my own car because it's just easier that way (don't have to have someone take me to work and pick me up since we don't want to leave my car in the work parking lot).

ahhh there isn't anyone yelling at the TV or video games here..

So I drove down Monday night (after Easter, that was poor planning on my part) and I got situated in my hotel and then I proceeded to watch a bunch of episodes of Escaping Polygamy and nap. Woohoo such the party girl. In my defense I was really sick Wednesday through Friday, cleaned all day Saturday and half the day Sunday, then had 25 people come to my house for Easter. I definitely deserved that napping haha.  At like 10:00 I was like ok I should probably go get some dinner so I drove out to Taco Bell (TG for GPS these days, makes everything so easy).

Tuesday I had to be there by 8 and we did some one on one training all day. But it was Tuesday so I went with some people for a Taco Tuesday lunch.  While I was working my friend drove down to stay with me for a night in the hotel. She drove by the place I was working and got the hotel key so she got some relaxing time in until I was off.

After work we went for a ride to the beach for a little bit of tide pooling. We got some food on the way there so we ate on the beach watching the sun go down. She had never been to Monterey so we did a little driving tour and then back to the hotel for maybe cocktails but turned out to be just being lazy and watching TV and snoozing lol.

Wednesday more training and got taken out to Chinese Food for lunch (I got paid for my meals but everyone kept buying them for me lol). The girl training me kept telling me I need to make sure I go slow when I do this stuff and I'm like why are you making it so difficult. Basically what I'll be doing is office will order office supplies, I push the button for them to go through and then I have to make sure and get their packing slips and that the orders were right, put them on a spreadsheet and then reconcile them later on the bank website. Easy peasy. So once the girl that is going to approve what I do gets trained up we might be actually doing it lol. I swear everything is always ass backwards in the government.

Check out this old fridge in their break room, It had the old metal shelves in it.

After work Wednesday we did some thrift store shopping. There was a Goodwill Outlet "the bins" as people call it, right next to the office I was working at. I was excited to check it out since I've only heard about it. They sell by the pound. It was definitely a little dirty and I was wishing I had gloves like some people wear.  There was one lady just standing over a bin of books scanning them all with her phone to see what they sell for. She had 2 carts, one was completely full. She'd scan and cart or toss into another bin. I figured if there was anything good in there she already got it lol.

I spent $3, well $2.97 but the guy didn't even offer me my three cents. That really annoys me but I didn't want to make a scene lol. Plus I was practically getting stuff for free (which is really the way they should sell all their stuff instead of marking so much of it up).

After a bit of shopping my friend and I parted ways. I took my time going home and stopped at Casa De Fruita for some dinner. 

Ugh Scott is grunting and hobbling around. He said he stepped wrong off the train. Should be good for some knee surgery or something. He never just gets a little bit hurt. Of course he didn't even take any Tylenol let alone anything else. Wouldn't want to help yourself out or anything. Sign me up for another work-cation lol.

Pin It

oh, Julie, it is the man code. They can bitch, moan, whine and not work but God forbid they take a Tylenol or do anything that might remotely help it.
When you were saying you were going alone I thought, oooh nice, a mini vacation. That would have been my thoughts. I would love to go to a nice hotel and be alone (no funerals or family) just me myself and I for a couple of days and then come home and be happy to be there....tee hee. I'd be getting a massage, a pedicure, read, watch tv with no one changing channels. That kind of thing.

3 cents change? Sheesh, here in New Zealand the smallest coin we now have is 10 cents, so everything is rounded up or down to the nearest 10 cents. We used to have 1, 2 and 5 cent coins, but not anymore, not for years. Hell, I don't even use the 10 cent coins any more.
