Feeling overwhelmed...

Sunday, December 03, 2017

Feeling overwhelmed & it's not even Christmas yet...

Saw the work schedule for the next few weeks... Starting 12/11, we're all working mandatory overtime (6 day work weeks w/ 10-12 hour shifts) until 1/2. (the only exception being my pre-planned trip to St. Louis 12/27 - 12/28).

The only good news is that the store owners have a strong sense of 'family values'... thus, the store will be closed both Christmas day & New Years day.

My game plan during that time will be to bring plenty of healthy snacks & lunches to work along w/ plenty of water.

    It's been a long time since I had to work mandatory overtime. I still remember how tired I was. Take good care of yourself, and recognize what is optional in your private life. Don't worry about "shoulds". Your health and sanity are worth more than an ostentatious holiday. Low key, and enjoyable. Good luck!

    That will be a hard work schedule between now and Christmas. Glad you will have Christmas and New Years off. That will give you some family time so you can relax with your family.

    You have a great plan as far as eating healthy and you will get through this with your healthy snacks.

    Enjoy the holidays. emoticon
