Such a day! The first part of my shift didn’t go all that well but it got better as it went along. When I got home I had the new issue of Rue Morgue waiting for me as well as my box of lotions from Bath & Body Works. Yay! I was also able to spend some quality time with the family. It has been a bit since we all spent more than a few minutes together. So the day ended on a good note. A coconut scented one too. I got a nice long shower in and I used one of my new lotions.
I have to make a special effort to remember what day it is. My schedule is all over the place since I took the promotion. I am a bit frustrated as I still have yet to get my keys and codes. If they are only going to train me for two days before letting me off on my own then I need to have all my equipment. I believe Wednesday and Saturday are my two nights I am manager this week. I also have to remember that I have a physical therapy appointment tomorrow morning. I set an alarm. With the way the days are blurring together I am worried about forgetting something. I made my car payment today as well. Before I forget that.
I am hoping that my day off Tuesday (I have a meeting that night to cover) will allow me to get my headspace cleared up. It feels like everything is rushing through changes and I am fighting to keep up. My big concern is the manager training. I don’t feel two days is enough before throwing me in the deep end. I talked to Matt (who is training me) and he has offered to stay with me one of the nights after close. I told him that I wanted to make myself a check list so that I had something to follow. I think that will be a big help having some thing to reference instead of trying to remember something I have only done twice.
I got a few photos taken yesterday. I found a rogue tulip in one of my gardens that has a big bud on it. I am excited to see what color it is! Hopefully the temperatures stay decent enough that it doesn’t die before it blooms. I also found a third type of daffodil in the garden! It has smaller flowers and blooms in clusters of three or so. Very delicate yellow color. I took some photos with both the Nikon and the cell phone camera of the sunset colors. There are almost no colors in the photos from the Nikon. Yet my phone camera can capture the colors. (Neither seems to capture the purples and blues for some reason.) I am still trying to work out that mystery.
Tomorrow’s blog should be at a regular early morning time since I have a physical therapy appointment. I’m still not sure about the rest of the week. I close all week but hopefully I can get myself to bed before 1am. I hope. Poor Essie. She can’t find a comfortable place to lay because she hurts (too much frisbee the past few days). You can see it’s her back legs and hips that are giving her trouble when she walks. Damn it. When I call to get their medicine tomorrow I will see if I can get her some pain medicine.
Ok, I am going to stop blathering on. Lol. Thanks for reading and thanks for the awesome comments as well as the support! Stay safe!
