The weather was nice yesterday. Sixpence reported that the temps climbed up into the 70s (F) where he lives, well, those temps are hitting Central PA today and tomorrow. Then, supposedly, we have a dip down into the 50s (F) before the climb back into the 60s (F). I'm fine with that.
The retail business was slow yesterday.
The Orange Retailer I work for changed their scheduling system, from Kronos, to something else that's more cumbersome, probably to save money. I used to be able to print off a copy of my schedule and hang it on my refrigerator... not any more. They want us to use our phones. I used to copy my schedule over into my Calendar, the one that has all of my appointments so I could see everything at a glance... not any more. Associates aren't happy. This reminds me a lot of when Microsoft released Windows 8 (?), an update that was touch screen oriented. We Windows users all remember what a failure that was.
Rather than on 11/13 my new countertop is getting installed today, 11/7. Surprise! Yep. I got a call, and 2 texts, from them. One of our Kitchen Designers at my store who used to install countertops told me this happens if it's an easy install, and installations themselves are a bit slow. So, when I finish this entry, I'm going to go down to the kitchen and disconnect the plumbing.
And, since my birthday's tomorrow (cards, letters, and gifts are always appreciated) I bought myself a new computer / gaming monitor. Actually, It's more of a necessity. My aging Acer monitor has been having issues: random areas that go black for a few seconds and sometimes there's a black grid that covers an area of the screen, but never the same area. It is 7 and a half years old, so I guess it's time.
And of course this happened yesterday.
