The first day back after vacation is always hard….. today redefined that statement. I had the usual first hour of assessing the situation before I even looked at the pile of paperwork that needed filed, statements that need reconciled, etc. Most things are fixable so I really wasn’t stressing. On a normal first day back I begin to play catch up, that never happened today.
I lost count of how many glasses we sold today, it was like a revolving door in optical. There are contact lens orders that were never ordered last week and I added to that stack today. There is just no time. This catch up and clean up is going to be a long process…I don’t think it’s ever been this bad. I have no words.
I did have an interesting thing happen this morning…. I was in optical on the phone with the lab whose first words were “oh thank god you’re back!” Messes…it’s only just begun. I looked down at my hand on the counter and all around my fingers there was a yellow glow. I thought maybe it was the light so I put a white paper in the same spot and there was nothing. I had the Master Optician put his hand in the same spot and nothing? It was that same feeling of awe when I saw someone’s aura in a Holy Fire Reiki class. You know you are seeing it and yet….you still try to rationalize it. It wasn’t a big thing and yet to me….it was the best part of my day.
I didn’t accomplish anything after I made it home. To be honest? I will be asleep before the first person out there reads these words and it’s not even 10 o’clock. Today kicked my butt, although it did have it’s moments….
I’m a sucker for a pretty sky….Zia
