Today is one of those double-shift days at the shop – opening shift seven hours, closing shift seven hours – UHG! I’m pouting a bit as it’s also May the 4th, which is sort of a big deal to Star Wars fans (you may have noticed the #MayTheFourthBeWithYou hashtag trending on social media). Double shift means I’ve got very little time, and I have issues with time management. I had time to…
*grab a coffee while waiting for the metro
*make a quick trip to the bakery (called ahead to reserve my order)
*take photos (took fifteen minutes)
*wolf down a meal of re-heated leftovers (I’m eating as I type up this post)
Once the post goes up, I might just have enough time to start laundry (probably not), and then I’m headed straight back to work.
On my way home I was feeling a bit pressed for time (still am), and I wanted to make sure that the camera and tripod were good to go when I arrived. I texted Cole and told him I needed to get pictures as soon as I walked through the door…poor phrasing.
He snapped this photo (above) before I’d had a chance to even put anything down. Can you sense the eye roll? Made me laugh, though, and that’s never a bad thing.
If my mini rant above didn’t give it away already, the insanity is still happening at work, at least until next week. A little relief is headed my way starting on Monday; my employer’s two sons will each be taking between ten and fifteen hours at the shop, which means I’m able to ease into a regular, full-time position. I was asked if I want to return to part time and, while I miss quiet time here at the condo, I like contributing more (financially) to the household; I’d be crazy to turn down the bump in hours.
I’m going to have around twenty free hours next week that I didn’t have this week. I’m not sure what to do with all that time. Perhaps I could clean up the place so it doesn’t look like hoarders live here, or I might actually get a chance to catch up on posts, spend some quality time at the gym, walk my dog, and…dare I wish it…actually get some quality sleep! Oh, the glorious possibilities.
I know this post is short, but I promise I’ll have more coming soon; Anne and Willow are coming over this weekend to finish up the capsule wardrobe. The last four looks of our thirty-look challenge. Ten pieces certainly goes a long way, doesn’t it?
