Stu’s World XLVIII

We go back to business as usual at work tomorrow. Not that we have slowed down any. We have actually been busier. But the business as usual means that customers will be able to go inside and place their orders instead of calling in their orders. And our hours of operation will go back up as well. Which means more overtime😊

I think the salesmen just want to be able to stay at the register instead of going outside where it’s now hot. That’s what I think it is. Such wimps.

What stinks is that now instead of the customer waiting outside the gate for the orders to put on their trailers they will be allowed to come on the yard. By doing this they will keep us the worker from being able to do our job efficiently and then complain that it takes too long. Well…if you get out of the freaking way then we can get to the lumber to pull it…geez.

I love not having them on the yard. We get more work done and faster because we are not trying to maneuver our forklifts with 20 foot long beams between trucks and trailers….ughhhh.

But I am very grateful that none of us have gotten sick. No coughs, runny noses, headaches, vomitting or fevers.


I miss my kids 😢 The videos are nice but I can not wait to give them real long heartwarming hugs!!!

I was able to watch Brandon and Erin do some face painting the other day. Erin painted Brandon as a clown and then as a beat up zombie. She is an amazing artist!

I asked Brandon to make some photos along he way. I don’t have the finished photo but I was in awe.

Today they were outside making tie-dye shirts 😊


Angie is going stir crazy. Mom is not doing well and seems to be giving up😥

Angie is now doing everything around the house, but due to her health issues she is having a hard time with it all.

Her dad…well let’s just I don’t like him. He doesn’t help.

Now if it was my wife that was hurting and having a hard time I would be the one stepping in and doing stuff instead of sitting on the couch watching TV.

She needs a break as soon as she can get out of quarantine. A weekend away but feels she can’t because of her mom.

Maybe I can get someone to take me over there and give her a night out away from her parents so she have some Angie time…maybe. I doubt it though.

This really hurts me that I CAN’T be there. I can’t even give a hug when she needs one or hold her when she feels she is calling apart 😭


I will be writing more frequently just please bear with me a little longer as I get back into the rhythm.

I really do miss you all. I have been reading several of y’all’s posts and I want you to know that they have touched me. Some of them I comment on and some I do not because I try to read in between customers and then get interrupted by a salesmen as I am pondering on how to word my response. Then of course it’s gone. Because I am then concentrating on pulling the customers order accurately.

I am also hoping to get back to my monthly post picks. I have missed doing that for y’all! More than you realize!

Have a blessed week! Pray for one another and remember…

  1. That’s fantastic you will get overtime! How blessed you are in that area Stuart with so many people out of work.

    Erin is one talented girl! Wow.

    Angie is beyond lucky to have a man who loves her like you do. I know you feel the same about her loving you. It’s wonderful to be loved by someone. The greatest gift in the world. ❤

  2. It’s a shame the company don’t keep doing what they’ve been doing, so the workers can get their work done! 🤦‍♀️

    Erin is one talented girl! And of course, Brandon is the perfect subject! I know you are proud of them both! Hang in there, hopefully soon you will get to see them in person!…Will be praying for Angie.

    1. I’m glad they are opening up to be honest. We here in Louisiana kept all that going, though a few plants did shut down for a bit, but changed the materials they produced to keep working as “essentials”.

      I am very happy to hear you liked the song😊 One of my favorites!
