Yesterday was absolutely crappy! I started out okay, tracking my meals and my exercise. Then, I went to give a friend a ride to work and she got a ride from someone else without contacting me. I decided not to let that get me too down or mad since I was close to Sears and I wanted to see if they had a skirt I was looking for. Well, they didn't. So, again, I tried to make my time away from home useful and go to Wal-Mart instead, to see if they either had the skirt or a pattern for me to make one myself. Once again, I was disappointed to find none of what I was looking for.
Then I had to go into work. That only succeeded in making my day even crappier. Right when I got there it was time for shift change (obviously) and a family came in with a complicated order. (Not to sound like BonQuiQui, but this really was a complicated order) at shift change with only one person working up front at the dine-in counter and drive-thru at the same time (me) and only one person making all the orders in the kitchen. Complications and complaints ("I don't mean to complain, but...") came pouring from this one family all while I'm trying to take other in-house and drive-thru orders at the same time. Needless to say, my stress meter is starting to crawl up there. Then, the time comes for me to start sending fellow employees on their breaks. Of course, that would be the exact time the "flood waters" of customers would decide that they were hungry and it was time to come eat at our establishment! Stress-o-meter really pushing the red-zone now. At one point I almost start to cry. But, that was yesterday.
Today has been much better, so far. I got to sleep in later today and really get some good rest; much needed after last-nights working affairs. And I spent some quiet time this morning reading a good book that I am thoroughly enjoying. I'm not quite through with it yet, but I am very close. Now, I am about to help my step-dad with a little yard work and get my exercise for the day in. Then, I'll see what happens with the rest of my day later. Here's hoping it is a good one. :D
