Good Sunday afternoon or Sunday night for some! Thank you for joining me. Come on in for some drinks.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you it’s been a blistering hot week. It was near 100°F on Monday. At first, I thought summer was coming early because it’s usually doesn’t get this hot until the end of June or early July. Then, all of a sudden, the temperature dropped to the mid-60’s today and it made me feel freezing cold. It wasn’t very nice of Mother Nature to do this. Not nice!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I worked almost 47 hours this week – 44 hours at my full-time and 3 hours at my part-time. Not too bad. I was planning on working three more hours at my part-time but my boss from the part-time job called on Friday and told me the office was closing early. So I did a couple of overtime hours instead.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you the full-time job is going well. I managed to clean up some folders this week by invoicing customers. I cannot even tell you how much mail I opened and scanned this week. It’s part of my job, you see. I have to open the mail, stamp the exams, and scan them into the system to be invoiced by me. It’s monotonous and tedious but it beats sitting around doing nothing.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I have been getting quite a workout at the new job. On an average day, my Fitbit registered me walking an average of 7,000 steps at the office and 35 floors per day. I work on the 9th floor and often, I have to go down to the 5th floor to get something to drink. Instead of waiting for the elevator, I have been taking the stairs. Going down is easy, it’s going back up that’s the exercise.
I remember my thighs were incredibly sore on Tuesday after doing 65 floors on Monday. Since then, I’ve been taking it easy, only do the entire building (floors 1-10) when I go out for my daily walk with my mom. I still got plenty of stair-climbing workout into my day, just not as many as 65 floors.
Overall, I am enjoying the freedom and flexibility of the new job and I’m glad and surprised to discover my mom didn’t bother me as much as when we worked at separate places. Maybe it really takes us working in the same building for her to leave me alone.
If we were having coffee, I would thank you for joining me this week and hopefully, I will be back next weekend.
