4/20/15 - All I can say is 3 am is pretty
early to get up. I am working towards
making my get up time 3:30 by being
more prepared the night before. I do not,
however, like having to go to bed early --
10 pm to get 5 hours of sleep assuming I go
to sleep as soon as my head hits the pillow.
That doesn't happen by the way. I may have
to dig out my old hypnosis tape. That worked
for me when I was employed on 3rd shift.
To the right is my new pair of shoes called
Sloggers. I am watering plants for 8 hours
a day with lots of water puddles. I have worn
these for a couple days but still manage to get
my pant legs and feet wet. I can only hope it
feels good this summer when the temperature
is soaring. Of course, my curly hair is a
complete mess in the outside windy, damp
conditions. Good news is that garden employees can wear a hat. Hopefully mine will be here
any day. That will also cut some hair combing time off my morning getting-dressed routine! Yeah!!
Running the cash register is getting a little easier, too. There are a few procedures I have not mastered, i.e. WIC, gift cards, ad matching, opening Wal-Mart charge, warranty applications, etc. Even some of the coupons give me a problem. I will just carry on! I am constantly busy with the watering so I see nothing but the plants in my area. I am therefore unable to tell customers where to find the fertilizer, fake owls, batteries and lawn furniture. I guess I could go in on my day off and look over the area, or during lunch break. That's pretty much the update. I don't mind the work. It is good exercise and boy can I feel it! I hope I make it through the summer. I did hire in as a "seasonal worker".
