Rarely has a day off been so appreciated
Thursday was sort of a good-bad day in occupational terms. The good part is that I had a reasonably easy day at my main job, returning to my regular duties following the completion of the special assignment. No more having to drive in Nassau either. The not-so-good part is that I had yet another shift at the Major Home Improvement Retailer, from 5:30 to 11, and it was particularly exhausting. With the upcoming inventory there’s a big push to clear freight from the receiving area. I spent most of the shift dealing with a seeming mountain of freight, and for the first few hours was dealing with a constant flow of customers because I was the only employee on duty in the garden department.
Friday was a very much appreciated day off. I hiked for a while on the Setauket – Port Jefferson trail and later on went to the gym for a while. Mostly, though, I tried to keep all thoughts of work out of my head. Not that I had much success.
