HiatusPosted 18 May 2012 by Andrea
Hello again all you readers of inanities! I apologize for the hiatus, I moved on Sunday (Mother’s Day) and then spend Monday being sore and unpacking. Tuesday I started a new position at the grocery store where I work. I went from being a cashier to being a member of the grocery staff. Yes, I know, grocery staff within a grocery store… Here’s the thing, there’s a deli/bakery department, a meat/seafood department, a produce department and a grocery department. The grocery staff basically handles all the aisles in the middle of the store as well as the refrigerator cases along the walls are considered “grocery.” It’s a nice change of pace, the work keeps me busy without being crazed so the hours pass more quickly than they did when I was a cashier. Our store does not have a high volume of customers so when I was a cashier I was spending quite a bit of time standing around doing nothing or cleaning the same things over and over.
Wednesday was the same as Tuesday, just trying to learn the new job. Both days were also a bit difficult because they start at 7am. I haven’t started work that early in months so my entire sleep schedule got off. I knew I was going to need to go to bed early on Monday, but I was so drained Tuesday and Wednesday that I crashed, literally crashed before nine each night. It’s kind of nice actually. I was always a morning person so working morning shifts is better for me. Today, however, I will work a 2-10 shift so that I can help with the delivery truck and get the stocking done in my area. The change means that I will have a pretty static schedule, too. It will be so much easier to plan with a schedule that isn’t constantly rotating.
Anyways, I have 3 other posts that I’m working on so I should be able to get back to a regular writing routine. Working part time, exercising and taking some time for myself has led me to be much more creative so the writing is coming back in a big way. I might even be able to put together a new “short” or two. TTFN!
