It was the calm before the storm, though at the time I didn’t realize it as such. “Calm” was pretty much a given. Friday I was off as usual, and on Saturday and Sunday I worked four-hour shifts at the Major Home Improvement Retailer. Easy stuff. Sunday started out a bit scary because I was assigned to the flooring department, about which I knew little, but with some assistance from other workers everything went okay.
While I knew that the following week would be difficult at my main job, still being on the very tough two-week work cycle, I figured it would be easier than the preceding week. The second weeks of cycles are usually easier than the first weeks, as I get the hang of things, and I’ve rarely encountered too many difficulties at the two sites where I’d be. So I enjoyed the weekend, made a couple of decent gym trip, life is good. Right? Stay tuned.
