That's simply breathtaking, Kgirl!
I sew.  There's nothing better for me than putting on some nice music, and just being alone with my own creations for a few hours.  Lately I've been using my crockpot alot for dinners so I can get a couple of hours of sewing in before my husband gets home and I need to have dinner on the table..
Oh do I ever remember the Barney days!    It wasn't so bad with our son but our daughter was obsessed with him.  She was two when the Barney movie was in theatres and she had to see it, and of course she had her stuffed Barney, BJ and Baby Bop firmly in her arms the whole time.  My husband missed out on that adventure for some reason.. I think he took our son to Union Station to view the trains or something like that..   As for what I'm listening to, right now it's...
I have someone in my department who likes to pitch fits when when things do not go their way.  The boss asked me to take care of a situation the other day so I did but then this person came in and started freaking out on me.   They like to lean on the fact that they have English as their second language and that they don't understand.. yeah right... I have worked with cooks that have not even been in this country for a few months and I have never experienced what I have...
I saw a guy get fired because he blamed his lateness on the bus.   I rode the same bus as him to work and I was never late.., not even once.   The thing I did differently than he did was give myself an extra half hour to allow for traffic jams, missing the conneecting bus., bus driver not sticking to the schedule..    What pisses me off... when people like to pass the buck for their eff ups... and when chef confronts them the first thing out of their mouth is "it...
I've done corporate and owner-operated and  I had a good experience with corporate and owner operated and then a terrible experience with owner-operated so really I think it depends not only on the place but the people who are in charge.   Now I'm corporate again, as well as non profit and both places are amazing to work at.
Well I sort of got the PITA sewing project finished.. it was a bathing suit for my daughter... and it came out really nice.  Unfortunately I made a minor mistake when I was at the fabric store and listened to the salesperson who was trying to help me.. so instead of making my own cups for the top, she gave me premade ones... big mistake!!  She had a backup suit with her just in case and I am going to take the top apart and remove those stupid things.. then it will be...
Kgirl I replied in your thread but I will say it again.. it looks like you had an amazing visit home!!  I will pass on the raw fish though and I did gain twenty pounds just looking at the pics you took!
Thanks Butzy.. good to see you again too!
Thanks ChefEdB... you are so right... for every place there is a person and I think this person has found her place..  it's not a glamour job and no one will ever see what I do or where I work but it is a great place to work and the pros outweigh the cons tenfold when it comes to the job itself.
