Constantly tired....need a more regular job.


Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Ok...don't get me wrong. My job isn't horrible, but it isn't great either. Not something I want to make into a career. I work at a convenience store....I work the morning shift. This starts at 4:30am and goes until 11:30am. My part of this job entails cooking....all morning. I start by turning on all the ovens/grills etc. Throw Cinnabon rolls into the oven to start. (clean whatever night crew didn't do). Get hotdogs, tornados, and breakfast sandwiches going. And keep that up till I go home. Most of this is done alone. I sometimes get help but not usually. Needless to say I'm run ragged all morning and exhausted. I usually come home and take a nap (if my kids and the phone let me) today that didn't happen. Trust me....showers DO NOT compensate for lack of sleep. I'd love to have an office job again....back to that 8-5ish kinda hours.

Let me tell you....this kinda schedule reeks havoc with any sort of eating schedule. Much less being around all that high calorie food all day long. And working out when you're already so worn out just seems daunting.

Sorry for my rant/vent. I'm just having a rough day and needed to get it out.

    Actively looking. I've applied to about 6 different jobs with the state (hubby works there so why not...carpool...lol) and have apps also in with 3-4 other places right now as well. If you see something clerical/office/receptionist - ish in the west end of Omaha that might work as well....let me know...:-)

    Hey, it's good to get it out in the open. You know what's happening and now you'll have to try to adjust a little, if possible, to take some pressure off. Are you actively looking elsewhere for a more regular job or are you just going to deal with it for awhile?
