Schedule shift

Well....it appears my schedule has opened up a bit more. Unfortunately this is due my hours being cut back. Nothing personal, just that the store's business did not pick up this summer the way it has in the past. Along with gaining a day off, I also acquired a rather icky bit in the middle of the week where I close the shop late one night and open it early the next morning. The turnaround on that is a little tight if you actually want to shower, eat and get a full eight hours sleep. This is the wrong time of year to pass on bathing, and skipping meals leads me to unbearable crankiness followed by passing out and hitting the floor, so you can figure out where I skimped in order to get it done. And I am feeling it now.

Tomorrow is that shiny brand new day off, and I have every intention of making the most of it. As much as I'd like to sleep in late, I know from long experience that will not happen. Between the neighbors I loathe and the feline family I love, I'm doomed. I accept that. But I do have a list of projects I'd like to work on, a whole day for them, and here's the best part of it...every single blessed thing I want to do can be done with my butt firmly planted on the couch. Yep, that's right. Me and the couch are gonna have some quality time!

Naps? I never sleep until very late on days off/weekends, but I do take a nap, and it's great. You can do that on the sofa too!

Oh yeah.. quality couch time.. there's a lot to be said for that! And as for the feline family.. since my girl can actually get the bedroom door open, i've found a tiny little lock allows me some peaceful morning sleep away from the "precious"... hehehe.

So? How's the day off going so far? Hmmmmm? Poke, poke. Nudge, nudge. You're not trying to sleep are you? ;)

Enjoy that day off! With your schedule, you deserve it. I don't think I could work that night/morning shift. I'd probably fall asleep right at work!
