Saturday at Work

I made it through working my first Saturday in forever... Although I didn't think I would make it the whole day as I was so sick this morning... I felt like my eyeballs were going to pop out of my head and that my forehead was huge sticking two feet out in front of me... and I was so tired, felt like I was walking through quicksand... I got to work at 7am, we were open with our door buster savings... It was way foggy outside but a handful of people made it in to shop... They finished shopping and our regular crowd came in at 9am, lol... I set up our wee ad this morning... And then proceeded to lug two big tables up the stairs... Someone was supposed to help me by doing it yesterday but that didn't happen... They were only way heavy cause I didn't feel good... So I moved the men's table to the women's side and filled it up with women's fashion boots... and then set up the two new tables in men's and filled them with work boots... I then proceeded to stock all the work boots I opened yesterday... I cleaned up the stockroom a bit and stocked some athletic shoes... Meanwhile our 9am person called out on today being one of those days where it is all hands on deck and everyone is to work... grrrr..... Another person came in at 10am and by 10:30am I could barely take it anymore and went to lunch early... I called hubby, drank a soda, took some ibuprofen, choked down my chimichanga and watched college football... By 11:40am I was feeling a bit better and headed back to work... By time I got to the floor, I felt great!! I couldn't believe it... What a difference... So in between all the too much chatting and making plans for setting up the ad for Friday I made a small dent in opening some more boxes... I still feel the headache lingering in the back and my nose is a bit stuffy and I'm coughing a bit, but I think I am finally on the mend... Now son3 says he doesn't feel well...
Son2 is bugging me... I told him he will make my headache come back and he will have to do all my chores, lol... He's gone off to watch Madagascar with son3... They're eating chocolate chip muffins for dinner... I'm such a bad mom, lol... I just finished eating my lunch from work that I couldn't eat this morning... Ok now, hubby's not due home for a couple of hours... should I read some blogs, watch Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 with son2 or fix something else to eat.... maybe time for all three...
Happy Journaling...

I told you to just stay home and play on blogs with me today - but nooooo, you just had to go to work! You don't have to work tomorrow do you? ::keeping fingers crossed::
Have a fun evening and try to get some rest - I like dinner, send some over :-)

Glad to hear you are on the mend. It's that time of year for sure.
I remember when we only had two days off of school for Thanksgiving.
Have a restful Sunday,

Sorry that you feel so bad.
Man you little elves are always at work changing the store around. Lauren has this job too.
Oh no now it's gonna get son3. I love Madagascar. Kyan could watch the first one over and over. I love to hear him say Glowiera is a gurl. It's so funny. It's like a funny Italian accent.
Get some rest and feel better. Hey I'm not behind anymore.

good for you for making it through! that would be hard to be at work when you aren't used to working on Saturdays, and then to go in when you weren't feeling good either!

I wondered if there would be a crowd for doorbusters; seems like a lot of stores were offering that promotion this weekend

chocolate chip muffins are wonderful for dinner! there's at least 1-2 food groups represented in them some place

there is nothing worse than working sick....and man, it is awful when someone calls off when you HAVE to be at work and you need all the help you can get. Glad you started to feel better. XO
