T minus 14 days
Monday. 11.18.13 9:50 pm
I have two more weeks left until I will be ensuring that my final preparations before my trip are complete. Two more weeks. It's so close now I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel. The level of excitement is only clouded by the level of exhaustion that I'm currently experiencing.

For the first time since starting my job at Sam's, it actually felt super slow. Normally I'm thankful for the slower days, but there's always just enough business to pass the time in a sufficient manor. Tonight time seemed to have stood still. There were never more than 2 people in my line and there were gaps in between them that seemed to occur less than every half an hour. I also didn't get any sales done tonight so that kind of made it more discouraging. Oh well. There's always tomorrow.

Until then. . .

Another long stretch
Sunday. 11.17.13 6:37 pm
Only four more days left in this 13 day stretch of working. I know I chose to work the extra day, but it still sucks having to wake up to an alarm before 6am for more than 5 days in a row. 6 is pushing it. Tomorrow will be day 10.

I'm going to start calling Sundays 'Standby Sunday' because of how often we get standbys on Sunday. The one from today makes 94 for the year, including the handful of ones from other buildings. I would say probably 80+ of the 94 are psych patients. It's become a serious problem with mental illness and not having the appropriate boarding and staff to facilitate them all. So they get stuck in a place that doesn't have the proper care for them until they can be shipped off to another place that does and get held there even longer. It's not fair for anyone, really, but that's just the way it is right now and there's nothing we can do about it.

Hopefully tomorrow goes by smoother than today did. It probably won't since it's Monday and that almost never goes by without a hitch. I guess we'll see what happens. I also have both jobs again tomorrow and the second one will probably be annoying as well. Hopefully not, but again, there always seems to be something that keeps it from being a perfectly calm work day.

Until then. . .

Facepalm moment
Saturday. 11.16.13 6:16 pm
I have tried 3 times now to buy a pair of nice, comfortable, not-too-tight leggings and have always seemed to end up buying tights. Well, this time I'm not going to return them so I'm just going to be stuck with tights. They're not super uncomfortable, but I wanted leggings so they're not the comfort level that I was looking for. I'm essentially giving up until I have a second pair of eyes with me and can save me from myself.

I'm going to be crashing early tonight, for sure. I may be in bed before 9. As soon as my laundry is done, I'll be calling it a night. I didn't sleep very well last night and since I have to be at work tomorrow morning, I'm going to take advantage and sleep early tonight.

I stopped at the mall on my way home because I needed new jeans and I know that JC Penny has Arizona brand jeans, which are really comfy. I lucked out on that particular trip because they were on sale so I was able to buy two and still stay under my budget for jeans. So that kind of made up for the fact that I bought not-leggings. I'm already kind of excited to wear them.

While I was at the mall, I considered going to Target to get some new razor cartridges because I'm in desperate need of new ones, but I figured this was a good time to try out the Venus Embrace that I got as a gift years ago and never opened. The blades on that one will last me at least until the end of the month so I'll just wait on buying new cartridges.

Alright, time to put my jacket in the dryer for the last 20 minutes. I'll be watching the two shows that I have in my queue on Hulu and then calling it a night. Hopefully tomorrow goes buy about as well as today did.

Until then. . .

Procrastinating
Friday. 11.15.13 7:55 pm
I got my bills paid while I was at work and I was able to stop at the bank before I headed home, but I haven't bought the bags for the trip yet. I'll probably do it tomorrow, but we'll have to see. I may be putting it off until next Friday, which is cutting it close, but still enough time to get things shipped to my house with the 2 day Prime shipping on Amazon.

Today was really uneventful, but I was exhausted. I took a nap when I got home and didn't wake up until around 7. Which means that my sleep for tonight is probably screwed which means that my attitude for tomorrow is definitely screwed ... and in a customer service job like Sam's, I'm going to have to work really hard to keep from being rude to people. Saturdays are always busy so that makes my attempting friendly customer service that much more challenging. Ugh.

It wouldn't be so bad if I could at least sleep in. Waking up to an alarm every single morning for two weeks is rather annoying. It's a sacrifice I am well aware I made this time around, but that doesn't mean I can't still bitch about it. Especially since that's what this blog is for, essentially; to get my thoughts out of my head and on to 'paper.'

Alright, me and my awesome smelling self will be watching videos for the next couple hours and hopefully I'll be tired enough to fall asleep at a reasonable hour so that I'm not super cranky in the morning.

Until tomorrow. . .

Halfway?
Thursday. 11.14.13 9:51 pm
I'm exhausted, but at least I smell good. I started using a new body wash tonight and it smells pretty awesome. It's called Coconut Island Quench from Softsoap. I have to admit it kind of makes me want to shower more often.

I guess I'm kind of, but not really, halfway through my super long week. After I get through the shift tomorrow, I think, is the halfway point. It's going to be a long day. I was going to bring a change of clothes with me so that I could be more comfortable when I go to the bank/store, but I think I'll just deal with doing it in my uniform. I want to get home as quickly as possible and having to deal with bringing a change of clothes requires too much energy on my part right now.

Until tomorrow. . .

It's all in my head
Wednesday. 11.13.13 9:23 pm
The amount of time I spend at work really isn't that much. The commute to and from the second job takes a bit of time, especially since I never know what traffic is going to look like so I can't really push it like I can with the regular job. I know exactly how long it takes me to get there in the mornings so I know how far out I can push it before I'm late. I keep thinking that it's super exhausting working all these extra hours, and even though it can be, it's really not too bad. I still usually get a solid 6 hours of sleep a night, which is what I was getting before I got the second job.

It's the amount of free time that I'm sacrificing that makes it seem like it's more work than it is.

Also, I'm trying really hard to convince myself that my manager bumping in to me at work today was just a coincidence. He was walking behind me and pushed past me to get to something in front of me and bumped in to me in the process. No excuse me, no nothing {probably because he really needed to make that phone call} and it sent shivers down my spine. I had to actually work to not smile from ear to ear. *insert an 'omg, he touched me' moment* There's no way he would have done that on purpose ... right?

No, it's all in my head.

Until tomorrow. . .
