Itâ€™s six a.m. on Tuesday the 23rd of February and I just woke up. I feel awful today, Iâ€™m pretty sure Iâ€™m getting sick. I work at 8:30 and this is the only time I will be alone today. I believe itâ€™s vital to spend at least some time alone. I fed the cat and then made breakfast for myself Â I had sautÃ©ed greens with eggs and rice. Iâ€™m about to take a shower and head into work, but Iâ€™m having trouble finding clean work clothes. I have six work shirts but I seem to be almost out all the time.
Itâ€™s 10:49 and Iâ€™m on my first break. A lot of people decided not to come to work today so weâ€™re very short handed. This is the only place Iâ€™ve ever worked where you can get away with that. Sometime they donâ€™t even call in. I have to price six hundred pieces of wares today to meet our quota. I also have to finish loading a semi, unload another semi and load it back up while keeping everyone else supplied with wares and textiles. It will be a long day.
Itâ€™s now 1:30 and I am on my lunch break. I usually listen to an audio book and zone out for a half hour. Everyone is pissed off so they keep complaining to me and my break is over. The truck is finished but I have to two hundred wares left to price.
Itâ€™s 4:46 and Iâ€™m home. Iâ€™m about to take H. for a walk so M. can be alone for a while. After that I plan to make a potato dumpling soup for dinner. Iâ€™m glad the days are getting longer.
Itâ€™s 8:38 and H. just fell asleep so Iâ€™m going to do the same.
