The only thing keeping me sane at the moment is knowing that in 18 hours, my trusty assistant will take over the department and I will have 4 out of 6 days off. I don't know what I would do without her.

I slept about 3 hours. Tossed and turned the rest of the night ... a bit worse than typical for the night before inventory. Being this is year end, I guess it was expected that I'd lie awake reminding myself to count the Cunningham Candies in the Deli or that juice in the corner of the cooler. Yep, I forgot to count both the first time around.

To make a long story short (skip if you don't care :D ) I get discounts from suppliers for the week of Christmas. Most of my stuff was purchased before that at a higher price. However, because of the automation I must inventory at the discounted cost. Which means I don't hit my monthly gross and I might squeak by for the yearly. If I had known this, I would have let my department stay empty until the Christmas Eve truck!

When life throws you lemons, you make lemonade. When I realized this, I ordered a ton of stuff for tomorrow.... because it is discounted. I get to count at the non-discount rate at the end of January. Doesn't help today or this year but oh well.

I didn't cheat on food today, I actually forced myself to eat. I didn't go to the gym (after 10 hours of numbers, that was enough exercise).

Tomorrow, I get to divide this inventory into sub-categories and unload a huge truck (with a lot help from my assistant)

I am resolved to go to the gym and force myself to eat tomorrow. I know if I don't, it will result in total day long binge once I relax!
