Yep, It's LABOR Day Weekend
Between loading mattresses, slinging plates and running a weed eater, this little body is just about worn out. It beats the alternative though, sitting at home with nothing to do or no job.
Massey leaves tomorrow to go back to school but between yard work and real work got to spend some nice quality time together. She is loving university life and I am loving HER loving university life. Working at the restaurant again tomorrow and praying for rain. Cancelled cookouts mean going out to eat instead.
Took Ziggy on a walk a few minutes ago. I walked into two different spider webs and they freaked me out. I hate that feeling...is the spider on me? Ziggy didn't answer me but at least he took a dump.
Tim and Massey got all the laundry caught up this weekend, all the yards are cut and I'm tumbling into bed after eating one more hot dog.
Tuesday I start my second week at the mattress store. Last Thursday was hotter than blue blazes in there and pretty slow... first time they had been open on a Thursday. At the furniture store I had all kind of recliners, sofas and loveseats to choose from to sit and read when business was slow. Now I have a desk chair and a room full of beds. I helped load up a queen size mattress and two box springs out the door and came back into the sauna. My back was killing me so marched my little self over to a thousand dollar memory foam mattress by the open front door, put a box fan on the dresser beside the bed and opened my book. It felt wonderful and highly recommend the "Opulence" memory foam king size mattress. It felt so wonderful and I was so stinking tired. My last day off had been when we moved Massey into her fifth floor dorm room on a hot sweltering Atlanta day, so it wasn't really even a day off. Closed my eyes and promised myself I would just rest my eyes for one minute. I jolted awake when I heard a man cough. He was just walking past me when patting on the bed next to me said "Try this one out, it's awesome!"
Note to self: Never lay down on the Opulence mattress again with a book.
He ended up spending thirty minutes in the store with me and even worked him up a quote for a queen size mattress and box springs.
Crisis diverted and lesson learned.
I went in the back room and found small pillow to put under my butt while I sat upright in my office chair.
I have the best of both worlds. I love working at the restaurant and the peeps I work for. I love having three days of down time and utilizing my selling skills in a different way. It's made my life much more bearable and feel much more rested.
So if you ever want the best food south of Atlanta or a good deal on a mattress or bedroom suit, come see me...I promise not to be snoozing!
Til next time...COTTON
