Whatever Happened To The 9 To 5?

Good morning! How are you doing today? I am so tired this morning. I worked from 4 am to 6:30 pm yesterday. Whatever happened to the good ole 9 to 5? Certainly, this does not exist anymore. My body hurts just a little. Oh well, that's the job sometimes.

Today I am visiting some of the stores we are taking over. One is close to downtown and could totally be a great store once we remodel. The area it is in has the urban feel to it. The other store is in an area where there are a lot of Hispanic and Asian clientele. We can certainly cater to that.

After that, I have to meet with my boss. He is suppose to go over some stuff with us. I am not sure what to think of this new boss, but I am always willing to give people a chance.

Josh and I went to a hockey game last night. I had to meet him there because I was running so late. We lost, of course, but there were three good fights toward the end. I missed those because I headed home early. I was so tired I don't remember anything about the game. The three periods flew by and I don't have a clue as to what happened.

Josh's BIL (brother-in-law) was there with his son. That kid loves my lime chiffon dessert. Every time I see him, he hugs me and tells me how much he loves the dessert. How cute. I only make it on special occasions, so he is excited for Easter dinner this year.

I am taking my time going in to work today. The body is in slow-mo. There is another hockey game tonight I am going to. I will try and update later, but if not, have a great day!

Do you at least get tomorrow off? I hope you do..and you get time to recharge. Do something nice for yourself.
And I am so jealous you are going to a second hockey game.
Take care

Ya know, my longer hours now leave me drained. Getting to work about 8-8:15, and leaving at 5:15 now is taking some getting used to. Use to get off at 3:30 or 4:30 depending if you worked the drive up teller window.
The worst part is the boredom. It will take a while for our customers to know we're truly open til 5 now. As of right now, we only have 10-15 customers in the lobby from 3-5. We've all been bringing books to read because there's simply nothing to do.

You need a vacation! You work HARD!

You do have a demanding job. It's a good thing you love it. I hope you're off today. Do something fun!

Thanks for stopping by Em's blog. I'm not taking her saying she'd like to live with her dad the wrong way. I think she wants to be far from the ex-boyfriend. Because of where her dad lives, it won't be a possibility.

Oh girl, you work too much. But look who's talking, eh?

Have a good Sunday, are you watching the big game or working?

Working 4 to 6, what a way to make a living....

People are definitely working harder and longer hours these days and have a lower quality of life than in previous generations. Except we have better hi-tech toys to play with.
