Mother's Day and Work

Since my mom never reads this, its safe for me to announce that I will be surprising her this weekend by driving to Salmon (by myself!) to attend a Mother's Day luncheon with her and my sisters. I'll hide out at Jenny's Friday night and show up at the luncheon. I can't wait to see her face!

This week is busy but good. I have a lot of preschool business to plan. Being the president was fun, but I am ready to pass the baton. It is a great school, and I am so glad both my boys attended. If any of you need a great preschool, call me and I'll give you details.

I am also looking forward to the MS Walk in Salmon the weekend after this. May 14th we will walk and raise money to fight the disese that Jeff's mom is suffering from. We have a good-sized group signed up and plan on having a ball! If you want to come and join us, call or just show up at the Sacajawea Center in Salmon.

Work is going well at EDS. I've quit bucking the system and now just do as I'm told--I am basically a droid on the phone. I still try to help my customers, but the scripting I have to say to every customer is so silly. The customer doesn't want to hear it and I don't want to say it, but I will say it if I want to keep working there!! So the next time you call a business, and the gal or guy on the phone asks you bunches of questions that have nothing to do with why you called, just bear with them. They have to say it! And at the end of the call when they offer you the daily "sale" let them fly through the scripting and then just say "no thank you." Taking close to 50 calls a night, I can say those scripts in my sleep! It's really not so bad once you get used to it....

Speaking of work, I better finish up the laundry and get ready to go. Have a super day!
