having that said, i made it through c's and d's. my list hath dropped from 417 friends to 388. hopefully, i'll get to the point to where i could keep up on what's going on in your personal lives. i've missed out on so much: pregnancies, house purchases, other eventful things.
i'm sick of being a bad, bad friend.
work yesterday wasn't hardly bad at all. i actually jogged to work (well, as much as my lungs and side would let me, i think i made it 1/3 of the way total... but not at the same time!), and spent my first 5 hours of working (michaels) downstocking giant HEAVY boxes of photo albums and metal hole punches. my arms are a bit wonky this morning, not to mention the EXCELLENT workout i got for both my arms and thighs: climb up a ladder, pull a box down that is still higher than my head... slowly back down the ladder, holding box over head and using only thigh muscles to balance... bringing out random overpriced merchandise... lifting box over head and climbing back up skinny, rickety ladder, using only thighs for balance.
my 3 1/2 hours between shifts wasn't long and arduous at all. had a nice lunch that i didn't have to race through for once, and went to barnes and noble for tea.
holy MOLY, if you haven't tried their cinnamon sunset tea yet? you MUST. it's freaking ORGASMIC. i read lots (of the r.a. salvatore book i've been trudging through for awhile now). it was so nice being able to just... SIT... next to a window with a beautifully green bush outside, the sun shining through it just so, and nice quietness all around. it makes me almost look forward to the days i have to work both jobs.
my last five hours of working... i got there, supervisor said "you can hug me now, because i'm not putting you on a register tonight!" i squeed with glee...d. (all of our cashiers recently quit, so although i'm excellent with my electronics knowledge and pulling any piece of furniture that does not require a Big Scary 10 Foot Ladder, i have been forced to stand behind a register for almost EVERY SINGLE one of my shifts lately. no bueno. i always feel like i'm being punished when i'm told i have to cashier instead of roaming free.)
so i roamed free! until a couple of hours into my shift, when supervisor roxana said i had to count into one. d'oh! i think i ran like 3 transactions off of it the entire night, though. i was sleepy and loopy, though it was an excellent customer service night, where whenever i answered the simplest question, i was thanked immensely and told i was SOOOO helpful and SOOOO knowledgeable. (versus the nights where people won't talk to me because i'm a GIRL, neveryoumind that i'm the most knowledgeable about said subject over anyone else currently there.) realized that my favorite trio to yak to is debra and don johnson. good times, though not a lot of work got done.
have i mentioned how much i freaking LOVE my coworkers there? love them. now that one or two are gone fairly recently, i have no qualms, most days!
a 3 1/2 break between jobs seemed PERFECT: my feet didn't hurt until right when i got home (lovely scary walk after dark.. uphill...) i wasn't hating humans... yup.
schedule next week? tuesday/thursday off at officemax. working tuesday/thursday at michaels. *sigh*
