This work week is finally over (at least for me anyway).
By yesterday morning everybody who had been working all week was done. You could tell we were all exhausted, and that the week was wearing on us. I feel bad for the two GM’s who have been putting in over 60 hours of work, and are on day 6 or 7 without a day off. You could tell everyone was tired, and that they had reached their limits.
This morning on my way to work I got caught by a speed trap as I was passing a oil truck after putzing behind him for a ways. It was smelly and slow and taking to long after a stop light, so I sped up to get around it, and bam, the flashes went off and there I was. Note to self in the future: take a different route to and from work. This is the city. There are plenty of other ways to get there without taking the freeway.
There is a bath and body works across the little side road, in the same shopping complex as where I work. I got an email while I was at work that their aroma therapy stuff was 50% off. After I got off work, I stopped there and got a bottle of the stress relief body wash and the body cream as well as the almond scented body wash and a container of pumpkin cupcake hand soap.
I stopped and got myself a large soy hazelnut latte from Dutch Bros on my way home before running my other errands.
I also stopped at Target and Fred Meyer to pick up stuff like laundry detergent, icy hot for my achy joints and muscles, my favorite lotion, shampoo, conditioner, tea, and fruit snacks.
Having enough Gas to get me through to payday has been a real stressor the past couple of weeks. Beings that I got paid, I was able to put gas in my car.
Since I have been home, I took a nice hot shower, I used my new stress relief body wash. I also applied the icy hot after my shower and a little bit of the stress relief body cream.
I had some lunch, and now I am just relaxing while I have a load of laundry going. I was so hot and sweaty when I got home, everything needed a bath.
It will be nice to do some knitting as well as being able to catch up on on vlogs and shows I have been missing.
I have been missing being out living in a small town, with wide open spaces.
