Cold, Windy, Snowy
Up in the northern part of Oklahoma they got tons of snow! I believe we just got the edge of the storm and all we got was a light dusting. But it's very cold and right now it's only 34 degrees. It's quite windy as well. I only have a short day at work tonight....just 4 hours so I'm going to hang around here and keep warm. I have cleaning to do and I don't know how this place gets so dirty. With the two of us here it shouldn't but I think it's a matter of it being small and anything that is left out looks like clutter. If everything is in it's place it looks nice and neat.
Russell is working on a furnace today. It's at the apartment complex that is next door to us. He fixed a heater in one of those apartments yesterday and now another one is broken. He's getting pretty good at fixing stuff like this and learning as he goes along.
We found out recently that that same apartment complex used to be a small hospital. I tried researching it but have not found out anything about it yet. Russell heard from one of his co-workers that the first floor was a morgue. Pretty interesting huh? Maybe there are a few spirits wandering around there. I told Russell that he should ask the first floor tenants if they saw any spirits and mention the morgue thing but I don't think he wants to scare them. I don't think I'd want to live in a place that used to be a morgue.
We had a meeting at work the other day and they talked about how Walmart was still doing very well despite the economy. I think I'm going to start buying a bit of Walmart stock and that will come out of my paycheck each pay period. I didn't realize that they matched it up to 15 % so it's like having a savings account and you would not get that much interest on any savings account that I know of. They always talked about all the *Green* things that they do as a company. They are very big on recycling and now they are doing something I thought they'd never do. At the other Walmart I worked at in SC I used to get upset that they be throwing away so much food....such as veggies that looked perfectly good or things that were a bit past their sell by date. Now they donate it to food pantrys. It's about time! They even freeze milk that's getting near the date and then it goes to the food pantrys. Things that are near their sell by date are perfectly good for quite some time after that date. Now all that food won't be going to waste and will go to people that can really use it.
Well that's it for now. Y'all have a wonderful weekend. :)
