Last week was a whirlwind of sorts. Tuesday was orientation, but I already shared about that here. Wednesday wasn't so bad. Two hours of learning the cash register. I would say "training", but handing me a book and telling me to figure it out with a fellow new team member isn't really training. Haha. Thursday was kinda rough! I worked from 4:30pm-11pm. My trainer had an important project to work on so I was left alone the majority of the night. She was helpful, but I would have liked some more one on one time. Friday totally made up for the night before. The lady who trained me was the sweetest and she stayed with me the entire night. I was even recognized during our end-of-the-shift "team huddle" for being a quick learner and for working hard. So, that was neat.
Once the weekend rolled around, I was ready to
be lazy relax at home for a bit. G and I went out to dinner with our friends on Saturday night. Yummy sushi and lots of laughs makes for a pretty great night. I'm surprised they didn't kick us out because of how loud we were! I intended to go to church yesterday morning, but I didn't make it there. I must have been tired because I turned my alarm off and didn't wake up until 11am. Yikes! Between working and just not feeling it (bad excuse), I haven't been to church much this year. Need to go soon!
I spent the day being a bum, not even gonna lie. I stayed in an over-sized tee and sweatpants all day long. I managed to get some laundry done (washed and put away). I cooked a pot full of creamy chicken tortilla soup for dinner (and by pot, I mean crock-pot ... love that thing). Needless to say, it was delicious and I'm planning on sharing the recipe with y'all. I watched television, played Call of Duty and unfollowed 50+ blogs that I had been following (new recommendations are appreciated). It was a lazy Sunday, no doubt about that. But, I enjoyed it.
This morning I woke up around 7am after going to bed after 2am (crazy, I know). My alarm hadn't gone off. I just felt well rested, I suppose. G was
already still up (he's a night owl, I tell ya). He put a fresh pot of coffee on and we headed back to our room. I basked in the comfort of our bed, with a cup of steaming pumpkin spiced bliss in hand. Slow mornings are the best, aren't they? I plan on being productive today (to make up for the past 2 days I've wasted, of course). I'm guessing step one would be to wrap this super long (sorry, not sorry) post up!
But first, I would really like to say how thankful I am for each and every (past, present and future) veteran that has served our country. Thank you for your bravery, your dedication and your sacrifice. I would especially like to recognize my Dad on this day of remembrance. He is loved and missed by many! Freedom isn't free, friends.
Don't forget to thank a vet today (and everyday, really).
