I am at work for 10 hours today working with another house manager. I prefer working with her over the other house manager. Today is so laid back and peacefully calm. The other house manager is a drill Sargent and a constant complainer.
But then there is the downfall of a laid back and peacefully calm day...boredom!
My clients are watching Dances With Wolves starring Kevin Costner. I am reading my Kindle in the background. As with boredom, hunger is more noticeable and time seems to slow down. I brought only so much food to carry me through the 10 hours of work and I do not want to eat their foods.
I will be repeating my 10-hour shift tomorrow, but starting 2 hours later. I will be working with two other staff people who begin their shift early in the morning and then later, with the house manager I have today.
It has been two days since I have walked in the mornings and I do miss it. I might be able to walk tomorrow morning, weather permitting, and then head off to work. TOM fully arrived this morning which could also trigger my feelings of hunger. I am tracking my salt intake to see if and why I always gain weight during TOM's visit. I know my calories are within the high range last month but maybe my food choices where more salty.
I will know in several days how my weight is going...I will be thrilled if I gain only one pound instead of the usual 3-4 pounds. Anyway, I hope everyone has a safe Memorial Day weekend!
God Bless our fine service men and women!
