It's been a slow month--- work wise......being a 'Reserve Flight Attendant" I am @ the mercy of Senior flight attendants calling out sick and being in the right place @ the right time to get called for a trip.
Luckily I did get one trip to London and that is ONLY b/c I worked the lead position (which you are supposed to be specially trained for) but they didn't have any of those people and the supervisor for those people (ISMs= International Service Managers) likes me and prefers I do it than someone who has NO clue & is crying the whole time b/c they have to do it. So yeah she called scheduling and made sure I worked that trip and since then......I have been 'on call'.............I think I have had 2 days off and done 2 Airport Alerts: Airport Alert ----I think most of you know what this is by now but their is a reference in case you don't. The other days I have just been sitting around wondering if at any minute I will be called to rush to the airport and save the day with my presence.
At first I really did think I was going to get called @ any minute but eventually I loosened that grasp on me and began living a life...... A life that meant working out....A life that meant cleaning.....A life that entailed 'hopeful' grocery shopping and home cooked meals. This has been a good life. I would prefer to be working and making money to continue the grocery shopping, etc... but I am glad to be back to working out and seeing the light of day (once in awhile).
Also, I have been able to work on the puzzle....unfortunately Joe has not been as excited about "The Puzzle" so besides Queen B's visit I have been on my own. Joe is VERY helpful....when he can pull himself away from the TV but that is only MAYBE during a commercial. hmmmmmppph........Hopefully we can work on this a little.
Anyway today was day 4 of working out...in 5 days......WOO HOO............and round 2 of severe grocery shopping and a yummy, delicious and healthy dinner with a new recipe for spinach that will become more of a constant FOR SURE. Maybe I will make it for you Queen B.....we shall see
Also, to clear up any foreseen comments about getting paid.....I get a 'pay guarantee' each month but it doesn't include per diem...........and I like to over my guarantee and work as much as possible but sometimes I just have to throw in the towel........
