Two workdays at the Major Home Improvement Retailer, but neither one was a full day. That means a smaller paycheck for the week (not that there’s any such thing as a large paycheck, ha ha), but it did give me a much-needed rest. On Saturday I worked from 8 am to 1:15 pm, which actually was interesting because I saw the big build-up in customer traffic that’s typical for weekends. There weren’t too many customers in the store when I arrived, but by the time my shift was over it was pretty crowded. As it was rather hot out (though not like last weekend’s steambath) I spent about 90 minutes watering the outdoor plants, a task I haven’t done in several weeks. I was able to spend most of the rest of the shift working indoors in the air conditioning. Believe me, that was a very welcome change after last weekend!
Later on Saturday I went to the gym, and did some benching. Nothing spectacular, but it was okay: 6 x 135, 6 x 165, 6 x 185, 4 x 205, 3 x 4 x 225.
Sunday’s work hours were a bit later in the day, 12:30 to 4:30. I spent more time outside than on Saturday, but it was much cooler so I didn’t really mind.
