I just have to get through today. I switched with the other Jennifer at work because they had me working 6 days in a row. Yesterday morning was miserable. Anything that could got wrong did. I’m not sure why I am closing all the time. I seem to be the only one that is doing that. The other new hires are working more mornings and getting out at a normal time. It was my understanding that I would be on mornings but… I guess not.
This morning I am writing in the living room. I told the kids that I would come out here for a bit so they didn’t all have to cram into the office. Moose takes up as much room as he can to keep his sisters out. Then he gets mad because Stella is content to curl up and sleep on my feet. Lol.
Next week will be my first week with both jobs (the grocery store and the paper) as well as class. I am going to try to keep ahead a week for as long as I can. That way if a week is too busy and I fall behind my classwork won’t suffer.
I’ve gone from all kinds of time to no time for family and friends. Mom and I barely text and Dad has asked if we can FaceTime (I think his computer has been repaired but I’ve not had a chance to ask) but I’ve had to say no because I was at work. I don’t think it would be such a big deal but it happened so fast. I mean I was hired on the spot and started almost the next day and have been going full time ever since.
I think Monday will be my day to catch up on everything. I need to do some stuff around the house and yard as well as try to catch up with family and friends. I am grateful I have been able to come home to Chris and the kids these past few days. I need to keep reminding myself that I have a meeting on Tuesday that I need to cover. It is via Zoom so I can stay home and watch. Out of the 4 monthly meetings that I cover only one still meets in person. I prefer the Zoom meetings and will be sad when I have to start driving to all the meetings again.
I am happy to say that the Pearl (also known as the Black Pearl my 1992 Honda CBR600) is now residing in the garage. My awesome husband moved her in there from the shed yesterday while I was at work. I think I will atleast clean her up tomorrow. I am very excited because this means I can start trying to get her running again. She has been sitting stuck in the shed for many years (since I had to lay her down) so she needs to have everything gone through. It would be awesome to have both bikes running! ❤
I have run on quite a bit this morning. But the bottom line is things are looking up. Thanks to everyone for their kind words and support! As always thanks for reading and stay safe!
