Day 5 of 9

After three and a half hours sleep I started work at 5 a.m. in produce. I start same time tomorrow, but I should be getting more sleep. I am going to bed after I post.

Produce is pretty basic. We get a load every day. Today it was in when I got there, which is good. Sometimes it isn’t and it puts me behind a little. I culled, broke down the load, checked dates, stocked went on lunch, processed shrink and stocked some more. Ideally the load should be done before the 1 p.m. closer arrives. And I had it done.

I think it being basic is good in some ways. But it where I do my best. Anyway, here is to day 6 tomorrow. Yes, 5 a.m. comes early. Goodnight.


I thought I missed a day…

I thought I missed posting yesterday. But I didn’t.

At work yesterday I was in produce. For the most part it was a good day. Got a lot done, went over my time a little. I stocked some dairy right before I left because I saw it was empty. But I worked from 1 p.m. until 10 p.m. and stayed until 11 p.m. to give a co-worker a ride.

I had to wake up to work at 11 a.m.

Today I worked in deli. Mostly along the 97 wall. Again I got a lot done. I talked to the store manager about taking over the 97 wall as a way of learning the basics of department manager.

The store has a program call Volume Producing Item. You pick and item and you helpĀ merchandise it. There is a contest, and if your product sells the most you win. I forget what you win. But I got an idea of what I want to use. Not sure I care about winning, but learning in the process.

Anyway, just hope I can have fun at work and do a good job. Also get noticed.

Two Days off

I made a to-do list and writing a blog post was one of the items. Here, done.

Ok, that isn’t a blog post.

I have two days off in a row, and it is great. Today was the first day and I have cleaned my room, the bathroom, and done a lot of other little chores. I still have a number of things on my list. I have time today to get them done, or tomorrow. For the last 17 days I have only had two days off. Going forward it looks like this is going to change. I will also be spending much more time in produce.

Life is good. The my cat and Saphira still aren’t friends, but they aren’t fighting and Saphira seems to be getting comfortable in the house. Today has just been a great, relaxing day.


I am watching a cat for a friend. Well, if things work out I will continue to watch the cat. Right now she is growling and hissing at my cat, and myself, quite a bit. I am trying to be sedulous and just give her space to relax and feel comfortable. I am sure she just feels scared. My cat is being mellow, except when she is being hissed at, which no one likes and then she starts to get upset and hiss back. Cats.

I once again only had one day off. I have to work today, and I feel tired. I don’t want to work. This also appears to be my last week in the deli on a regular basis, and it appears I will be moving back to produce. I’d rather stay in the deli and work with Tammy, but I doubt I will be given the option since it now appears the deli is close to fully staffed.

I just feel like I need a day to sleep, and read, and write. Not this kind of writing, but real writing. I was reading from Sylvia Plath’s journals yesterday. It always makes me want to journal more myself, write more myself, express more myself. I fail too often in all those regards.

I need to be more sedulous about writing.
