I got up a little after 6am and reset my alarm to 8am. I have had such broken sleep. I fell asleep reading around 10pm so I decided to brush my teeth and turn off the light. That deep sound sleep lasted until around 2am. Then I was wide awake or dead asleep. The awake periods lasted between 30 minutes and an hour. The asleep bits were just as jumbled. Dreams were weird too. So now I feel like I’ve been hit by a big something. I still have my work meeting to go to this morning (I had one for the paper last night that ended up going later than normal) so I can come home for an hour or two (it depends on how long the meeting lasts) before I return as closing manager for the night. Then I come home to catch what little sleep I can so I can be back at 7am tomorrow.
I feel like all I am doing is bouncing from one thing to the other. Both Stella and Chris were in and out of bed with upset stomachs last night. I’m not sure what time they were able to finally settle in. Work is going to be madness. There is a big shake up going in management and everyone is… not on egg shells but very unsure of our future. Not that of the store/company so much as what is going to happen to our work family. So many people have left we are going to be short staffed again.
For it being the slow season we sure aren’t. Not that we have more people coming through but that there is so much that needs to be done with no one to do them. And no one is being trained to do them. We have a major management person leaving and no one is being trained to take over what she does. One of the things she does is order cigarettes and dairy. Both departments are extremely empty. I don’t think any orders have been placed in over a week. I just don’t know. I suppose I should get going for the meeting. Wish me/us luck! Thanks for reading and stay safe!
