There was drama at work this weekend. There is talk of big changes coming. And still, we're just in the same old grind as always, with things getting worse when we thought for sure we'd hit rock bottom already. The only 'good' thing is that most of us are in the same boat, sharing the same feelings, and kinda keeping each other going until we see what's going to happen. We're supposedly getting "substantial" raises soon but they keep preaching that "With more money comes more responsibility. We're really going to be expecting people to step up their game." Ha! Right. We're so short on people because they can't get anyone to stay. They are supposedly having a hard time just getting people in the door, and then those people are all arrogant, lazy asses who quit the first time they're told to do something. We now have people working twelve hour shifts seven days a week! That is insane. But yeah, they say big changes are coming, so we'll see.
I was thinking the other day that while I don't mind venting about work and stuff here in my Natters posts, I'd like to get back to talking about more fun things like I used to. Things like my thoughts on TV shows I'm watching or books I'm reading. Instead of waiting to only do a review at the end, I'd like to comment here and there along the way if it seems Nattersworthy. Like the book I'm currently reading, Evermore, by Alyson Noel. It's an older series but it's new to me. I really don't know must about it at all. I'm about 3/4 of the way through the first book of the series and liking it. I was a little surprised to find it seems to be heading down a vampire path. And of course, if a YA novel has vampires I can't help but compare it to my beloved Twilight. In fact, I'm probably going to sidetrack in my reading after I finish Evermore, and just go reread Twilight again. I'm having an urge to watch the movie again too.
I'm behind on watching The Shannara Chronicles. We have last week's episode to watch and the new episode is on tonight. I thought I was really getting into that show but apparently not if I'm a week behind. LOL
Sleepy Hollow returned last week, now on Fridays. I'm not sure how I feel about that show these days. I do like it enough to keep watching but it's getting a little 'meh' now that they've gotten away from the original story so much. I'm convinced that Abbie with somehow encounter Katrina and Henry over there in whatever otherworld she's lost in at the moment, and that will be her way back to the real world and will be the way that Katrina and Henry come back to the show. I can't believe those two are really done. They were too huge to the story!
Vikings returns next week for the, what, fifth season . . . ? I'm excited for that although it's to the point them I'm fearing for Ragnar's life in every episode.
Elsewhere in my life I've just been quietly enjoying simple things like working on jigsaw puzzles and watching true crime shows on the ID channel. I haven't really been watching many videos on YouTube lately. Staying away from the haul videos has killed my urge to be crafty and keeps me from wanting to go to Dollar Tree and Target's Dollar Spot. (Although I did just see a video this morning showing some of the new Easter and spring things starting to show up in the Dollar Spot.) I haven't been fretting about wax. If I want some, I'll get some. If I don't feel like melting, I won't melt anything. I am getting to a point in my stash where I need to cut a bunch of things down to 1 oz. (ish) size so I can just grab something from the box and toss it in the warmer. You know I hate cutting wax. *whinydramaticsigh* I've been sleeping a little better lately. I'm very much looking forward to spring and summer, which still cracks me up because I used to NOT be a summer person. I'm just sick of winter now in my old age. Give me some cold and snow around Christmas to set the holiday mood, and then move that crap out.
So yeah, in general, just kinda hanging out and living the quiet life. It seems to be working for me at the moment.
How are you?
Looking forward to anything?
Watching any of the same shows I am?
