It sure felt like work today (and yesterday and the day before…). On what was a day off work for a lot of folks, it was another busy day for us. People rushing through the doors as soon as we unlocked them. I know we had some good bargains and a lot of people have already started their Christmas shopping, but I’m just not into it yet.
Unfortunately for us, we had a huge delivery today (I know, I know…you might think they wouldn’t send a shipment on a holiday when they know it’s going to be crazy busy. But, if you happened to think that, you’d be wrong…way wrong.). The store did not look its best. It really bothers me when our customers have to run an obstacle course to get to what they want. I know I hate it when I go into a store and it looks like that. But that’s another story for another time.
With everything going on, I was exhausted by the time I left. And, uh, yeah…in more than a little pain as well. I’ve taken some meds for my pain, but am still fighting it. I think the weather may be contributing to my increased pain levels too. They’re talking a little snow tonight. NO!! I don’t want snow. But not a lot I can do about that, is there? I guess I need to go to bed and try to get a good night’s sleep, but I’m still wide awake. I’ve got one more day to work before I get a day off.
I know I need to take care of myself, but oh my! I have so much that needs to be done at work. It just seems like a lot of, oh you know, work. I guess they really do call it that for a reason.
