I've Been Busy!

KFC job is going good... Really fun.... I started February 23rd and loved it... When I got there everybody was thinking, this is the new girl that is going to be working here, wow she is short!

They showed my around the place and taught me how to make sandwiches before the lunch rush... I had to memorize it because there are over 8 sandwiches and 3 wraps, But the wrapstar isn't that popular so I don't really have to worry about that.

For the first day, I couldn't toast the sandwiches that well because it was pushed back to much, so I had a few people toasting the buns... The Wicked Zinger and the Big Crunch sandwiches, are the most popular sandwiches there.

The first sandwich I made looked not that professional... Sure it was a sandwich but all the lettuce was everywhere, not enough mayo and my wrapping skills weren't that good... A month later, I am very good at it! I can wrap it fast, and I mean fast! I can make the sandwiches good and fast!

I've had a few 8 hour shifts, and I can say that they go by really fast. But at the end of the day, your feet hurt so bad! I've been on till quite a few times now, I had a few people that were cranky and throw fries in my face... I learnt that the customers are always right even if they are wrong!

I was going to be on drive through but I couldn't because the headsets couldn't fit my head so they said that they were going to order a smaller one for my head... haha...

Just a few days ago we had a health inspection, They are saying that we are going to have to wear gloves... The gloves are LARGE!! Not small, LARGE! I couldn't believe how big they were, we all have small hands!

We have to wear KFC hats and shirts, black or grey pants.... Anyways I thought I would write in my blog... Take care:)

Got The Job

The manager called around 12ish today and said that he would like me to come on Friday at 10:30-2:30. He also said that he wanted to do a job interview on the first day of work.

I am kinda nervous about the job interview, I have no clue what it is. But I am super excited for Friday!

Since I am living in town, I thought I would get a job on the weekend on Sunday. I always wanted to work at KFC since I was like 8 or 9... Why did I just say " I always wanted to?" I meant to say is I am wanting to work at KFC since I was 8 or 9...

I went to KFC when I was 11 turning 12 and was asking for a job. They said to come back in a year. well its been about a year and abit. I came and asked for a job even before I had my Social Insurance Number and a resume made up!

They said to come back with a resume and they will put it on the managers desk. I had to wait a day till I could go to Service Canada and get my Social Insurance Number. They said to bring your Birth Certificate to the office.

I went to the office and gave them my birth certificate and quizzed me what my full name was, my Mom and Dads maiden name was, or should I just say Mom's maiden because we all know that boys always have the same last name when they get married.

Anyways they gave me the Social Insurance number and then I went home to make up a resume. It was really fun to make up a resume:) After I got all the information on the resume, I went down to KFC and said that they would put it on the managers desk, and he would look at it tomorrow.

So now I will have to sleep on it and will wait and hear in a day... Mom said that it might be a couple weeks before he even gets back to me, I hope its not that long, I am sitting in suspense!!!

Cooking With Brothers...

I have been loving my new house, I love the kitchen and I love to bake bake bake! I was making some cookies today because we were going to have company... So I was looking up online and then I found a perfect recipe, it said that it would make 2 dozen cookies or more...

So I read over the recipe to make sure I have all the ingredients... I copied down the recipe and whipped up a batch of cookies... It was time to add the wet to the dry and stir... 

So I have the beaters to one of my brothers and went downstairs... By the time I had mixed the wet and the dry together, my brother finished his beater, while I was downstairs looking for a pan to cook the cookies in... I went upstairs and saw Darcy and Tyrell in the kitchen and thought, why are they in here, are they looking for some lunch? They went downstairs and so I put the cookies on the pan..

When I was about finished, I only had a dozen and a half, I looked on my recipe, I did everything it said to do... The culprits came into the kitchen for some more dough!!! Then immediately I know that they were in the kitchen eating some cookie dough.... I will admit, eating cookie dough before cooking it is fun... I would I have to say that dough is better then the real thing! Tips on having trouble with your cookie dough disappearing, don't cook with brothers in the house!

I'm Official

Since I was 6 and understood the meaning of money, I always wanted to be a cashier... Well 7 years later my dream finally came true... I am volunteering at the Ark and working as a concession worker and a cashier...

First I stock up all the drinks, candy, and food... Then do the dishes, make coffee, boil water, and of course fill the customers needs... The first customer I served was a hockey coach and wanted coffee...

So I went into the kitchen and got a mug and filled it with coffee and typed the cost into the cash register and put the money in....The only down side of the job is that I have to do the math mentally..

Like in most concessions have a till that you can tally up the cost, I have to tally up the cost and the amount of change in my head... I guess math pays off! There is kids hockey there so when they are on breaks or done, they come in and want to have Gatorade or Powerade, I can tell that they are hockey player by there little, Red, rosy cheeks!

I volunteer every week or whenever I need to fill in somebody... One of the girls are going to go to Florida in March for 4 months so I will be doing in every Monday and Wednesday!

I cannot wait till Monday comes!

Niece and Nephew!

We had the Grandkids for the weekend:)

Wedding Day

By the title you might think I might be getting married... NO I am not getting married it was one of our friends, I couldn't think of any other name to name it, so "Wedding Day" it is...

It was really beautiful... I got a nice view, no tall person right in front of me...YAY! It was only an hour for the service and a couple hours for the reception... They had the reception at a ski hill... It was really nice, Dad fired up the wood stove so we could have some REAL heat... Thats one thing that I miss...

Being in town we have natural gas for heat... At the farm we had this little cabin and a big wood stove and if we had 2 wood logs, we would've been sweating up in the loft at night...

The wedding couple saved their first kiss till their wedding day, it was really beautiful... The little flower girl and the ring boy were sooo adorable, they were holding hands down the isle...

I am finally back to my little routine, I have been super super busy for the last month... I have finished helping Granny move and clean...Megan was going to drive the truck, Mom drove the car, and Dad went and drove the U-Haul home...Tyrell and I were switching vehicles every gas station stop....  We loaded up the U-Haul and out we went out of Sidney, stayed a night in Super 8 Motel and out of the Motel at 6:00 in the morning to hop on the Ferry at 7...Well it turned out that the 7 AM Ferry was full so we had to wait till another Ferry came in and was going to Twassenn... It was going to come at 9 so we would've had to wait in line for a few hours.... Half an hour went by, it turned out that the 7 AM Ferry was NOT closed, so out we went on the Ferry.... We just barely made it, when we were all on, we had only 4 more spots behind us then it was officially full.... The ride was an hour and a half so Tyrell and I were taking pictures of us on the deck, taking videos of the sea, Sadley when I got home, I was putting the pictures onto my computer, all the pictures were highlighted without me knowing, and I saw this one picture that I didn't like so I pushed the button DELETE and I accidently deleted all my pictures... I had beautiful pictures of the mountains, The Fraiser Valley, Tyrell and I swimming, ect.. Pretty much my whole trip, I looked in my recylce bin to retreive them but sadly, they weren't there, you would think that they would give you a notice like ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO DELETE 400 pictures??? Anyways getting off topic here...hehehe... We left the island around September 20th and got back on the 22nd.... I loved the travel and can't wait till I go traveling again:) When we got home it was around 6:00, there was an hour of construction on the Pine Pass Road... Craig, Steph, Darcy, and all of us went to Whitespot for something to eat and then we went home with a full stomache ready to unload the 26 feet U-Haul...Anyways we are all settled in and Tyrell and I are doing schoolwork and walking the dogs in town...

Garden Pictures

Well, I think we have to say that it is winter folks.... Last week it snowed but it didn't stay.... It is October 28th and only snowed once...That is pretty good.... I hope we don't have the same winter like last year. The Old timers here said that it was the worst winter in 50 years! My Granny and Grandpa moved up here, never been off the island before, tehehehehe they will experience 6 months of snow, and -49 weather.
Now, as I sit crocheting a Granny Square blanket and waiting for the now to come....
