Three days of, if not bliss, at least some degree of pleasantness. Friday was of course my usual day off, and as usual it was a decent, low-pressure sort of day. Saturday things were a bit more hurried as I had a regular 8-hour shift at the Major Home Improvement Retailer. All in all, it wasn’t too bad, as lousy weather kept the customer count down and in any event mulch wasn’t on sale. I used the forklift a bit, in the process getting a bit more accustomed to the contraption. I was even able to bring down a pallet from the highest overhead rack, which is not an easy task. Lining up the forks with the pallet opening is quite tricky when the pallet is so far overhead. But I managed it.
Sunday was only a 4-hour shift, and as is usually the case with those shifts it seemed to zip by in a flash. Being the start of May was significant in an important respect. On May 20 we’re leaving on a 7-day Alaska cruise, leaving from Seattle. While this trip has been in the works for months, now that the month of departure has finally arrived it now seems like much more of an immediate thing rather than something in the future. I’m excited.
