A very busy day!

Monday, October 17, 2011

Well today was busier than yesterday. I worked from 10 - 6 pm today and came home physically and mentally tired. It was a great feeling cause I had no problems today at all. I did great on cash and I even helped with customer services and putting stock away. I only got stuck on where two items goes because there was no plan o gram for them so I had to leave it in the back room for the manager to deal with.

Now that Halloween is closer and so is Christmas it is a busy time. Lots of new stock coming in twice a week now and lots more items to put away cause people don't put them back but instead put them in shelves where they don't belong. Anyways we got it all done.

John came and got me and we came home and I made ham, low fat mash potatoes, green and yellow beans with a low fat gravy delicious.

Now it is time for me to go to bed I have to be up at 7 am for work.

So I will save go night. I will check in tomorrow night after dinner time for a bit.

    I would be afraid that I would spend all my money earned on new items coming into the store.

    It is getting very busy at our store, too. Makes it hard for me to learn where everything goes when the store is so trashed. I'm glad you had a good day!

An exhausting but fulfilling day at work!

Saturday, October 15, 2011

Well I got home one hour ago from a very long but fulfilling day. I enjoyed the seven hours that I had to work today and I learnt more about how things works. So I am very pleased with how things are working out.

Tomorrow is another busy day. So I should sign off now and go have my shower and go to bed.

I hope you all have a great night and an awesome day tomorrow.

My Work Day!

Thursday, October 13, 2011

Good Evening my wonderful Sparkfriends.

I just got home from work an hour ago and today went very well. Much better than I thought. I am starting to get to know the store and the people very well. I am also doing better at putting stock away.

Today was a lot of fun because I had a choice of either putting beads and fixing away or doing yarn. I choose yarn. I was able to put away a great deal of new stock and I was able to help five people in the yarn and needlework area because of my knowledge.

I felt so good to be able to help these people instead of getting help for them. I am useful and I am a great asset to the customers and to the store. Even one customer thought I was a manager or someone in charge because of my attitude and personality.

emoticon I feel good, oh so good.

We even had free pizza, juice or pop today and a thank you. I had two small squares and a juice. I stayed well within my calories today and I even managed to walk over 10 miles today which = 22,933 step today.

I am more comfortable at work now and I am starting to think on my own, coming up with some answers for our customers. Who were all in a good mood today.

I took my Scoobylicous( new name for Scooby-Doo) to work and the staff loved him and when Amy saw him she was over joyed at my work.

She paid me in cash right away and gave me a hug.

So all in all my day was great, now I am home soaking my aching feet first before I attempt to soak in a bath.

I found my foot bath that has a built in massager. What a heaven that is to have.

So now I know that all the pain and suffering that I had these last 17 month is worth it. All of you have told me to have faith in myself and things will come around and I would find something that suits my talent and my work ethics.

I am gaining more confidence each and every day and shift that I have at work. I am gaining more strength and stamina. I am sleeping better and I am now starting to dream funny and good dreams instead of nightmares or having insomnia.

One of the customers at work wants me to teach her how to knit and another one wants me to help her learn to crochet better. I told them that I would be happy too.

I can also, if I want, teach one or two knitting or crochet classes and earn extra money too. I told them to sign me up with one of the other teacher so that I get to know there way of doing things and then work my stuff around it.

Next week I have 37.5 hours and it looks like I will be getting that each and every week until Jan. 15th when they decide to keep on.

I hope they will, I know they will. I will make sure they will.

Well that is all the happy news that I have to share.

The water has now gotten cold in my foot bath so I am now going to have a soak in a bubble bath and read for a while.

Have a wonderful night.

Out and About!

Thursday, October 13, 2011

I slept great again last night and woke up at 8:30am after sleeping for 8 hours. So I am now pretty sure my sleeping is back to normal now that I have a job and I am more active.

When John got up and had his breaky we headed out and did our laundry which took us two hours in total to get it all done. After that we came home and put our stuff away and headed out again.

We headed to Walmart and did our grocery shopping and I found a nice beige long sleeve shirt in a man"s small and it fits. I love it, perfect for work. extra long and wider sleeves so that I can roll them up if I get hot, long enough to tuck in my pants and look professional.

Once that was done we came home and put all the grocery away and organized the cupboards, now everything is in its place. I now have some healthy snack and lunches for work.

I spent the next hour and half sparking and catching up on missed emails and sparkmails while dinner is being cooked.

I made a healthy chicken in rice dish with garlic peas.

After dinner I sat down to work on finishing up Scooby and it is now done. I can take it to work and show it to Amy and get paid for it. This Scooby came out to be three shorter than my original one that I have in my picture gallery.

I like the smaller one. Now I have to work on starting Scooby #5 for another customer. This one will be slightly different because she wants some changes made. I charged her more money for it, of course.

Now it is time to go and have a shower and go lie down and watch a bit of TV before I go to dream land.

I hope you all have a great Thursday. I have a six hour shift tomorrow, which should be a good one now that I have rested up an my back and feet don't hurt anymore.

I know in a few more weeks of working I won't notice my aching feet and back because I will be a lot stronger and used to standing on my feet all day.

Thanks again for all your support and suggestions.

I have written out a few more things in my note book and I am starting to make a map of the store stating the basic on it. That should help me until I really get to know the store.

Sandraland is signing off.
