Things are still moving along here in Amazon-land.
We are still upstairs in giftwrap,
but since there are different volunteers that come to do that job,
we're mostly doing support functions.
George for the most part does a job called 'water spider'.
If you picture what a water spider does,
you can visualize what George is doing.
He flits about, stocking supplies,
making gift boxes,
and generally helping in all places.
I bounce from the rebox station..
(putting gifts from one small shipping box to another larger shipping box).....
....to 'scan and verify'.
This entails scanning the box,
then scanning each product in the box.
A gift tag for each item prints
as well as a packing slip.
All is put back in the box and sent down the conveyor
to the gift wrappers.
Mind numbing jobs :-)
In our short time off on Sunday,
we get the chores done.
Not much time to do everything that needs to be done!
We like to eat at the college twice a week,
and now enjoy their tree..
One thing we've gotten accomplished...
we are now Texans y'all!
South Dakota has not been nice to fulltimers who need health insurance
on the exchange.
With some advice from Kyle Henson,
we chose to 'move' to Texas and enroll in a Blue Cross/Shield plan.
The premium is comparable to SD's Avera insurance plan,
but we'll get well visits at no charge anywhere in the nation.
That will be great!
We plan on swinging through Livingston, TX on our way west,
and get our driver's licenses, license plates, and inspections done.
We are anxiously counting down the few weeks remaining here.
Our route to California is planned, and barring any bad weather,
we'll travel on route 40 across the states,
getting us to our next job on January 5th.
No rest for the weary!!
