After a week off, I went back to work on my shift today. Wasn't that bad, just takes the body use to moving and grooving. Heard all kinds of rumors about down time, this and that. I just take it as it comes. I asked my supervisor about when is the likelihood of my per diem interview and she said she would try and find out. I am anxious to get moving to the next level.
My guy is doing this thing training out of town this week. We had such fun last week with me being off, missing him much.
My church held a free garage sale yesterday at the new proposed location. We served the local community here in Olathe that needed items for home. We gave away school supplies, clothing, dishes, pots, pans, DVD's. books, bikes, toys, beds and other odds and ends. We had a few gift cards for the first twenty people in line that could use $10. It was humbling to me, for there were all kinds of people-different races and cultures, men, women and children. Down and out, needed a little something for school or for their apartments, their homes-some even lived in group home settings. It made me humble to be able to stand tall for the duration outside with the bees registering families as they entered our little building. I didn't take a break, I didn't want to go use the bathroom, I just wanted to be able to calmly speak into the lives of each individual that passed through. At first I was a little taken aback by one woman's abruptness, but I checked myself. I have no complaints and some of these folks have had it hard lately. So I tightened it up, looked each individual in the eye and did my duty. It wasn't hard or back breaking. I know I have a lot to be thankful for.
