New favourite tool
On a separate note, I leaned a rather hard lesson yesterday - never ignore internal promptings to do something. I had been off work on vacation for 11 days, and several times during that period I had thought that I should go in to work and check and see if the new schedules were out, and put in my availability. I ignored it, thinking that when I went in Monday, yesterday, it would be time enough. WRONG!! I checked the schedule when I got there, and it had been filled in for me, and sent down to staffing, at which point no changes are allowed. So there are now more shifts filled in than I usually do, on days that I didn't want to work. Needless to say, I'm rather upset with myself. On the good side......... the pay checks will be good. I normally only do 6 8 hour shifts in a 2 week period. There are 8 1/2 shifts in one of the 2 week periods that are booked for me. The other 2 week period has 6 and the other has 7. This could be very interesting. Maybe I can add the extra shift funds into my trailer savings fund.........................??????
