Okay….I’ll admit that is a tad overly dramatic….but just a tad. I did seek out a second job which so far I really do like, but it will take a while to get used to staying up late. I didn’t get home until almost 2am last night, I can’t even remember the last time I was out that late!
It’s always hard when you start a new job and don’t know what you are doing, I think I have the kitchen part down….I just need to learn the computer, although it looks pretty user friendly. It was just too crazy this weekend to learn that. I did get to meet almost everyone yesterday, and it’s nice to work with a team again. I worked Friday night to learn as much as I could in the kitchen so I could be of use for their big event on Saturday. I did just fine in the kitchen and the rest of the night I was more like a bar back? I just basically helped whoever needed it. I only ran into one person last night that I knew, my oldest friends first boyfriend. I have known him since he was 14yrs old, I was a year older than they were, but he also played baseball with the Cockroaches brother…..here we go again. I just let it go and until now I didn’t even give it another thought. Just one of those things that I have to deal with I guess.
I should have taken today to just relax….but that would have made sense! Instead I chopped and seasoned and chopped some more and now I have chunky garden salsa in the canner right now. Let’s not forget the big mess in the kitchen! Why do I do this to myself? I still have laundry in the washer and dryer and it’s almost 10pm…yikes!
The kids left today to go to their dads for a week and they leave for DC tomorrow. They were good sports about having everything clean before they left, I still have my few areas to work on but the majority is clean. I have pennies soaking in my future lye soap making crockpot…what a mess that was. Soaking the pennies in salt and vinegar was a mistake and I actually had to boil the pennies in new vinegar to dissolve the hardened salt….the girl dropped the ball on that one. She sure made up for it by doing a kick ass job cleaning the bathroom and prepping the floor for the pennies…it’s hard to be mad at her for long.
I should take this week of alone time to get some major things accomplished…I need a game plan, maybe tomorrow. Have a great week…..Zia
