Yesterday was a long long day. We were short staffed (and will continue to be until we get new hires) and very busy most of the time. I was the closing cashier and we got done around 8:20pm because my line was almost all the way through to the back of the store at closing. I also found out a coworker had gone through some very bad things at home when she came in crying. I did my best to comfort her and talk to her about the situation. Oh and we are losing one of our staff member today. She gave her notice. So.
The winds are picking up here again. I wonder what they will peak at. The other day the trees were bending almost sideways. Everyone has commented how off the weather has been here lately. Today I am feeling like the weather. Off. I am beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed with everything that is going on. I would much rather stay home today and just decompress after all that has happened (there are things beyond what I have shared here). But I am front and center today. I’m not sure what tomorrow will be like since a coworker who is scheduled to work probably won’t be there (she has only worked one day this week and she is scheduled for full time hours). We will be short as it is but with all hands on deck due to the holiday weekend there will be no one to replace her. Sooooo the big question is will I stay in the deli or end up on a register?
Hopefully next week’s schedule will be out today. I only have two things. I have a meeting Thursday night (we are now having all meetings in person so on those days I told work that I need to have time to drive to the meeting as well as back if I am going to be scheduled on a day I have a meeting) and a doctor’s appointment Friday morning. I hope I don’t have to wait until Thursday for a day off next week. We’ll see.
I guess I ought to start getting ready for work. I haven’t had time to do any new photos so I will try to share some new pictures from the past. Stay safe and thanks for reading!
