Crazy Two Weeks

The past two weeks have been INSANE for me! I normally only work 75 hours every pay period (which is two weeks). However, this past pay period, I worked a total of 96 plus hours (AND it was the first of the month and we filled over 900 prescriptions when we had been averaging around 650 to 700 per week so this was a significant jump for our little pharmacy).

I say "plus" because what I will get paid for is 96 even though on Monday (Labor Day and the day I was supposed to get off "early" at 6:00) I had someone pull up at the drive-thru window after I already had the computers shut down and the gates pulled down and I was about to walk out the door (all I had left to do was log off my cash register drawer and literally walk out the door and lock up).

Of course, being the softy that I am, I end up staying because the prescription was for a kid and I was almost certain there was not another pharmacy open in Sparta...and I didn't want to be the mean person to send them to Cookeville to a 24 hour pharmacy (and competitor). I also have high hopes that the parents will remember me staying after on a holiday to fill their son's prescription the next time they need a prescription filled. However, I do not get paid for my time that I spent there filling the kid's prescriptions (or for calling the ER doctor when I realize that what he's written for does not even exist)!

Just my luck! They will remember the nice pharmacist who stayed after her shift had ended right?!?

The last day I was at work was this past Thursday. It is normal for me to get a 3 day weekend every other week because I work a 3 day weekend every other week! However, I have NEVER looked forward to a 3 day weekend like I did this past one!

So on Friday I ran around and paid some bills and did some errands. That night Juan had to work a 12 hour shift himself so after I cooked dinner, kissed him goodbye, and cleaned the kitchen, I got to do whatever I wanted to do and that was spend some time working on my scrapbook (guilt free)! The rest of the weekend has mainly been spent with Juan since we hadn't seem much of each other the past 2 weeks.

I have been trying to get caught up on the past several years that I have neglected! I have tons of pictures in boxes that I have not done anything with! This is a picture of a page that I had done a while ago (not this past Friday). I really like it for some reason. Maybe it's just because of what it's of - our honeymoon and the start of our life together! Who knows!

I was being lazy today and didn't take it out of the page protector (and I wish I had)...oh well!
