Melor is gone!

Typhoon Melor worked itself into a Super Typhoon (category 5 hurricane), then weakened into a Category 2, then 1 before reaching us. After a tiny bit of wind and a long rainstorm, Melor is no longer bothering us. The satellite view shows clouds all over Japan but it is a GORGEOUS sunny day here. There are very few clouds in the sky. The birds are singing. The crickets are chirping. The temperature is perfect. Its a glorious day. PLUS, we are all on administrative leave today so that means a day off WITH pay! Wwwooohhhoooo! The all clear will be given in about 45 minutes but the store is staying closed. Even better news!!! :) That means, I only have 2 more work days left. I can't wait!!!

So much going on......

First, to explain the photo.....there is a Super Typhoon brewing out in the Pacific. That translates into a Cat 5 Hurricane. Its headed our way! It is projected to be a cat 1 by the time it hits land though. Just to be safe, I am going "hurricane shopping" today. I will keep y'all updated on its progress.
Second, I quit my job. Yes, the one I was so excited to start less than a year ago. Yes, the one I was so happy with. Basically, a bunch of drama happened & all 3 of us "sales clerks" quit. You can only do your managers job for so long before you get disgusted with the situation and leave. I refuse to do her job for half of what she gets paid and let her get away with it. She's had 2 years to learn her job and the computer system and she still hasn't. I wont enable her anymore! My last day is the 10th. I am so excited!!!! I can't wait! I will be going back to college in January and looking for another job around that time too.
Lastly.....My mom called last week to say my aunt had passed away. (my dad's sister) She's been in the hospital for about 2 months now so it was no shock. What was a shock was not being told before it was in the newspaper. My parents divorced when I was young. Mom read the obituary and immediately called me. My dad's side of the family didnt want to call me until after the memorial service so I didnt spend so much money on last minute air fare. Oh well. Nothing I can do about that. I was very angry when it happened but I've moved on now. She is no longer in pain and thats what matters. Her request was that donations be made to Susan G. Komen or the ASPCA in her honor instead of flowers. Thats what I will be doing. I plan to do a tribute album to her once my dad sends me the photos. So, hug your loved ones tight and tell them how much they mean to you!!
