DAILY BLOG: I KNEE-D My Days Off!
The end of the year numbers are in. I made year end gross profit, year end sales, and barely squeeked by on labor hours.
I knew something was brewing when the produce supervisor sat and talked to my store manager and didn't ask for me to be present. I had been freaking out for 2 days wonder what was wrong now!
We customarily reduce hours from January-March because those are the slow months. I had done that already with my current assistant. She can only work weekends so I get every weekend off.
Well, they thought it would be a MARVELOUS idea if I took 2 half days and 1 full day off. It would reduce labor hours in my department and keep me at full time. When the store manager proposed it today, I wasn't prepared to answer.
I finally said "No." I explained that Obama had taken $25 out of my paycheck, even more from my husband's. Add an extra commute day to that and I lose even more. (*Silence*) No, I will just reduce my hours by 2 each week. Labor problem solved.
See, I'm thinking my current assistant was proposed this before I was and she was thinking "SCORE!" I don't have to work every weekend.! Not sure.
This has more to do with work. I stepped off a pallet wrong and twisted my knee. I ignored it, it went away.
I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and it seemed okay. Since I've started running around doing my required cleaning, it really hurts. So, since tomorrow is "Errand Day," according to FlyLady, I am taking a day off from the gym.
Today is "Anti-Procrastination Day" and "Clean the fridge Day," Hotspot was vacuuming the livingroom. Fridge was easy, just leftovers. It was clean from the holidays I have procrastinated putting the Christmas Dishes upstairs. I keep finding more decorations through the house so I have been waiting. It's getting done tonight if I have to crawl up those stairs!
