It's finally Friday!!! I can't tell you how happy I am to be done with work for the week. It was like groundhog day all week long. Get up, go to work, come home for lunch, go back to work, come home, eat, watch TV, and go back to bed to do it all again tomorrow. This week was particularily exhausting. We had a terrific end of the month and in the freight world, it means lots of freight and not enough drivers. We had service failures all over the place all week long. It never got any better. Freight was sitting at origin terminals because we didn't have enough road drivers to move it down the road. I hate having to tell our customers the same sad excuse.

On another front, my sister is not ready to retire because she is not old enough to get Medicare and to pay her COBRA it would be $1200 a month. Well I was talking to my boss and he asked about Dianne and asked if she was still working. I said "Hell yes. She's going to work until she's 80 like Edith in Knoxville. She must think she is going to live until she is 150." So we talked some more and we got on the subject of how much her COBRA would be and he told me that she could get insurance from Blue Cross for about $300 to $500 a month. He checked it out for himself and his sister. I gave her the info but of course she won't check it out. She passed it off to a friend that retired in January to check out first.

Tonight I spent some time in my stamp room getting my punches on my brand new punch board that Mark put together for me. He did a beautiful job. I can't believe how great my punches look all lined up on the racks. Before I hung them up, I made a sample of each punch so that I could have a sheet to look at to see what I have. I got the idea from my friend, Deb. She has a beautifully organized stamp room and I like to steal any idea from her so that my stamp room will be organized too.

That's all for now. Have a great night and a better tomorrow. I know I will because groundhog day is over for the week. YAY!!!

Hi Bevie,

Hopefully you can get a rest from work. sounds like it was crazy last week.

I can't wait to see your stamping room. I am glad that you got to spend some time in your "Happy Place" last night.
WE NEED TO LIVE CLOSER!! Sorry didn't mean to yell. Just miss you.
What am I going to do when you move to that Denver place? :(

Oh Sigh, we'll just have to celebrate today.

Love you girl.

How awesome of Mark to do that for you! I know I love Deb's! And yes, she is the most organized woman I know. Sorry the work week sucked so badly. It makes you appreciate the weekends even more! Love you!!!
