Those of you who’ve been following me at least a year know that when Amazon starts piling on the overtime that the two or three hours I get that aren’t devoted to work or sleeping are devoted to eating, showering, and relaxing, and time is at a premium. Well, the Receive department is on mandatory overtime, 55 hours this week, so that black out period is starting earlier than ever.

There simply isn’t enough time to write blog posts twice a week when working hours like this, so like last year I’ll be dropping down to only one full post a week when overtime is called. But, in place of that second blog post I’ll do something like this, where I share a photo or two with a paragraph.

Campground looks amazingly good considering the rainfall, yay gravel!

Campground looks amazingly good considering the rainfall, yay gravel!

The official rainfall total for the weekend was 3.49 inches here in Boyd, and Cas remained leak free and nothing around here flooded for those who were worried. Today the sun came out and it was a nice drive home from Amazon. I took these photos this evening as the sun was getting ready to set around the campground.

      Glad you enjoyed this Gal, even though it wasn’t much of an update. Overtime so soon after starting makes for a sore and tired me, but can’t complain about the moolah. 🙂

    Just realized that we met at work last week (after reading your blog for years.) Here’s hoping we both have a good peak season at Amazon!

    • Becky October 27, 2015 at 6:39 pm #

      Hehe, yeah that happens quite a bit with Amazon coworkers actually. Yeah, here’s to a good season!

    Wow, already with the overtime!!! Well, that’s good for your bank balance, if not your tired body….Guess i will content myself with catching up with some of your older posts that I may have missed at really busy times in my life. Now that I’ve been in an RV for a few months, there are definitely things I want to learn more about, and I’m sure you have blogged about it in the past.

      Yeah, right away on the second week Terri! Next week I shouldn’t be as tired, I’ll be more use to it.

    With all that overtime I would think even one post a week is a stretch but I’m thankful for whatever you can do 🙂 I think your stray cat has a twin down here in south Florida. There’s one that looks just like that running around here (driving my daughter’s dog crazy lol). Take care!

    • Becky October 30, 2015 at 7:55 pm #

      When I was living in SC there were several black strays around there too, must be a common color Connie. Poor dog, all that teasing. 😛

    You’ll want to remember this time even if it mostly working, so a post a week is a great plan for all of us. So glad you and the park had little issue with all that rain. Guess I’d better finish my holiday shopping on Amazon if the OT is already in full swing!!

      It’s raining heavily again today, but at least it’s only a 1 day thing.

      Yeah Jodee, tis the season, apparently. Well, I’m in Inbound remember so “peak” for us is earlier than outbound peak when everything starts flying off the shelves.

    I think you’ve found a great way to get enough money to fund your freedom through a couple of really hard weeks at Amazon, and some fun months in one of the National Parks. I don’t mind fewer posts during the Amazon seasons at all.

    • Becky October 30, 2015 at 7:58 pm #

      I’m glad you’re all being so understanding PJ. 🙂

      Yeah, this is the least fun time of the year, but after this I have several months of freedom! It’s totally worth it.

    We always look forward to your posts and pictures. But don’t stress yourself out. Work those overtime hours so you can have lots of play time later!!

    Hope to see more pics of that sweet kitty!

    • Becky October 30, 2015 at 8:00 pm #

      He (arbitrarily assigning sex) hasn’t been around today because of the rain. I’m guessing someone around here feeds him that he sticks around as close as he does. 🙂
