Today Maddie's speech therapist came and played with her while saying objects and words. She basically just tried to warm up to her and get to know her a little bit. She is going to come every Tuesday and Wednesday in the afternoon. I'd rather her come in the morning but oh well. After the speech therapist left I fed her lunch adn put her down for a nap. When she woke up we went to meet my friend Stephanie at the mall and I found a little black dress for my birthday and bought it. It looks really good on me but I think it might be too dressy. So I might just save it for my birthday dinner down in South Florida. After we went shopping we went to my work to eat because I also had to talk to one of my co-workers. You see I am scheduled to work on Father's Day which is apparently a mandatory work day because it is one of the busiest days in the year (even though I don't remember it being that busy last year). I told my manager that I was going to be out of town on Father's Day a MONTH ago. Since the day was blocked in the computer I couldn't request off so I had to tell him about it. He led me to believe that he was definately going to give it to me off. Well this weekend right before the general manager put the schedule up the manager that I had talked to said that I probably wasn't going to get Father's Day off now. The reason being they fired 5 people in one week and nobody had Father's Day off. I told him again that I was going to be out of town so I couldn't work. When the schedule went up I was working 10:45-4. So I said something to the general manager and she said that I have to get someone to cover for me. Since everyone is already working that means I would have to find someone willing to work straight thru. I wasn't having any luck so I asked my manager if I was going to lose my job if I didn't find anyone and he said yes. That's flippin GREAT!! There was one guy that said he might do it but when I went there tonight he said he couldn't because his car broke down and he had struggling all week to find rides to work and he didn't think he would find a ride on Sunday morning. Personally, I think he could if he really tried and that was just an excuse. So it's a pretty big possibility that I won't have a job next week. I wouldn't mind having a different job it is just finding one that accomodates my schedule so well like my job now does. And this is such a ridiculous reason to lose a job. Why don't I just cancel my trip do you ask? Plane tickets are already purchased, plans are already made and I am not cancelling everything just to work for five hours on Sunday!! I really hope I don't lose my job though.
Anyways Maddie was so hyper at Olive Garden tonight. She was squealing and being a huge goof. I'm not sure what got into her! She was acting crazy!! There was a birthday at one of the tables next to us and when everyone was singing Maddie started to squeal along with them. My co-workers thought that was the funniest thing and Maddie ate up the attention. When we got home I let her burn off some steam outside. I've been letting her run around outside almost everyday and she loves it. It's nice because she gets tired quick and doesn't really complain when I take her inside.
This will probably be the last post before I leave for South Florida because I have a lot to do within the next few days.
