Halloween at the Waffle House

Well unfortunately for you I didn't get a chance to take pictures of the few that did come into Waffle House last night in their Halloween costumes. Bummer I know. Because a lot of people dressed up and came in, but we were "balls to the walls" busy last night.
Let me tell you about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So it's a typical Saturday night, like usual I get there a little before 10 and sort of "prep" myself before taking the floor. Of course 2nd shift doesn't have their work done, so my co-worker and I get it all caught up. The first two hours go by smoothly with customers litering in and out. Nothing major and nothing busy. Bout 12:30am when the bars finally clear out, we fill up. And I'm talking FILL UP. Our Waffle House can seat comfortably about 60 people (and that is a rough guestimate to say the least) But Jonnie and I are doing our best to keep up. She has one end of the store and I have the other. We're taking orders and filling the grill up. I'm keeping my sanity, taking orders talking with the customers etc....then all hell breaks lose in my corner of the store. Holy SHIT! I evaluate the situation as best I could and realize that "yea I have some army training and can handle myself pretty well when breaking up a fight......but these guys are pretty big and I'm probably going to get slapped around some" So I run to the grill and tell James (our old roomate and other grill operator) that he's the "biggest one in the store and to get his butt over to my corner NOW" he looks at me kinda dumbfounded like "WTF are you talking about" (you would have had to been there to really appreicate the look he gave me) He then turns and realizes what it was that I was talking about. I've never seen a big man move so quick! LOL My hubby is also a cook at Waffle House and yes he can handle his own I'm sure. But he's my height and these guys were like 6ft and taller. So I made him stay back! LOL James and I got the fight under control and kicked some of the aggressors out on their rear end. I mean hey, if they wanna fight in the parking lot go for it! LOL
But then it back to business like usual. And about that time I turn and realize that the store had some how filled up more than it was BEFORE the fight broke out. Needless to say, and to make a long story short, I got my ass handed to me big time last night! It was busy all the way up til about 5am and if I never see another dirty dish or customer I won't be sad! LOL So that was my halloween night in a nutshell (yes I know today is technically halloween, but the bars night for dress up was last night) how was yours?

It's that time again

It's that time of year again when things get crazy hectic at work. Halloween is right around the corner. Next up is Thanksgiving and then Christmas. And work gets crazy! We are all pulling doubles and such just to cover the floor becuase we at the Waffle House never close. UGH! I know when Tate and I decide it's time for kids I won't be working there! I will want to be spending that time with my family! But for now the money is good so I can't complain to much. :)

Life around here is the usual. Eat, sleep, shower, work and repeat. It's a daunting task for sure. But we gotta do it.

What kind of mother can you be?

So in our local newspaper there is an article about a woman driving off and leaving her 2 year old at daycare. Of course this isn't usually a big issue. People drop their kids off at daycare all the time right? Well what is so shocking about this story is the mother was late to the drop off for daycare. When the aid went in to check to be sure that it was still ok for the mother to leave her child there, the mother drove off. Thus leaving her 2 year old child out on the stoop. The child was found later roaming the street. What kind of mother just drives off and leaves a 2 year old kid stranded outside like that? Ugh this story makes me want to punch that woman in the face!

A week has passed

Well a week has passed now. And thankfully I'm feeling much much better! So just wanted to drop a quick note to everyone to let you know that I didn't die due to my illness. It finally went away! Of course I better go knock on wood now, because it will come roaring back with a vengence if I do not! LOL

Well one day I felt like getting better, the next day not so much. And NOOOOOOOO for the record I am NOT pregnant! Seems like that is what everyone is thinking. But I've been preggers before and I know those symptoms quite well thanks very much! LOL I'm just not sure if it's the weather changing and the allergies are acting up or if it's the flu, or a slight case of pneumonia. If it doesn't clear up by this weekend or my next day off which is Sunday I'm def going to the doctor. Cuz let's just say grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr is the only way I can describe it. And Missy if you are reading this, I'm not a good patient either. But I need the work so calling out and resting isn't an option for me at the moment. So I'm toughing it out and doing what I have to and working. But I've pretty much spent the past 3 days doing much of nothing but sleeping! Attempted to go to a good friends surprise birthday party, lasted about an hour and a half and had to leave. Just started feeling blah again. So hopefully it goes away soon and I can get back to life! Cuz this just sucks!

Getting better day by day

Well it only took 4 days. But I'm starting to feel much better. And I didn't get the rest and relaxation needed the whole time I was sick. I went to work everyday and toughed it out. Man it was a killer I'll tell ya! I'm still dealing with the chest congestion. But all in all I'm better. I've got my energy back. So thanks for all the well wishes!

Currently I'm enjoying my 3 days off!

Thanks so much for those of you that read my last blog post and made such positive comments! It really made my day to read them! Sometimes I'm just in need of a lift me up! :) And you all really lifted me up! Espically your comment Ron! LOL

In other news................

I'm currently suffering from some sort of awful sickness that won't go away! It's been 3 days now and everyday I tend to wake up feeling worse than I did the day before! It started on Wednesday. I woke up with an awful sinus congestion and head cold. Then Thursday started in with the hurting while breathing and chest congestion. Awful cough as well. Also felt like I ran a marathon after sweeping and mopping the floors at work.

I haven't had any new symptoms as of yet today.....But then again I haven't been to bed yet either. LOL So we will see what the day is going to have in store for me when I wake up to get ready for work! Hopefully I'm at the end of this awful sickness and just get better. After tonight I have 3 days off and really don't want to spend them sick in bed!

Well Later Taters,
