Becky was "hired", or whatever it's called with a temp agency, by a place called QPS to work at a cheese factory called DCI. It sounded convenient. She was told she could pretty much pick the days she worked. The hours were miserable (4am-2pm), but if she only worked two days a week, they allowed her to coordinate around my class and mostly not conflict with me working at Pizza Hut. Which meant only needing a sitter periodically and for short times.
What that turned out to mean was, Becky could pick how many days a week she wanted, they'd schedule her for the specific days, and then call to tell her some machine had broken down so she wasn't needed. It was almost three weeks before she actually got a day of work . . . and a machine broke down, so everyone was sent home. Yesterday she finally got to work for a full day. Bagging Swiss cheese.
Ah well, not an exciting job, but it pays. It's still pretty convenient in terms of taking care of Tabby around our work schedules.
In fact, Tabby and I had a great time while Mom was at work. We grabbed donuts for breakfast, ate them at the mall and wandered around with the mall walkers for a bit. We saw that Cats & Dogs 2 was playing at the re-release theater and decided to return after lunch to watch it. It was a cute movie. Nothing to deep, but still a lot of fun. Tabby absolutely loved it.
