#4816: Sleeping as late as I like

Of course I have things to do today, but the most important of them will take about an hour, all told, and then the rest of the day is mine.

It's hot again, though not as hot as yesterday. Yesterday, with its all-day state-wide tornado watch--Mrs. Fungus sent me a text asking me to put the lawn chairs away, and of course right when I was doing that was the moment it chose to rain. The rain was warm, about the temperature of a comfortably-heated swimming pool, and that is a rather rare phenomenon in these parts.

...and of course by the time I was ready to leave for work, about five minutes later, it had stopped. People wonder why I'm paranoid, when it rains just long enough to ensure my work clothes get wet. Yeah.

But here's something: my days at work, Friday and Saturday, were reasonably pleasant for a change. It's been weeks since I had a nice day at work, and even longer since I had two in a row. Saturday's shift was made even nicer by the fact that I had absolutely nothing to do for the last hour and a half. The PC repair business seems to be cyclical, and I think we're at the tail end of a surge (post summer school, pre-beginning of school year?) right now. I helped a couple people with little issues, and rang one guy out, but otherwise I simply waited for closing time. Everything was done long before the end of my shift.

...which is a nice change from Monday, when I was running at full speed until half an hour after closing, and didn't get out of there until 40 minutes past the end of my shift.

Tomorrow I'm working the mid-shift, which is nice. I'm hoping it'll be like yesterday, with a minimum of stupidity and drudgery. That would be even nicer.

But! I have to go to the store for things, and then at least get the maintnenance on Mrs. Fungus' car attended to. I don't have that much to do today, but it won't get done if I don't do it. Whee!

  • #9226: I haven't managed THAT for a whle

    I slept until it was almost noon. I didn't get up at 3 or 4 or 5 AM and have a PBJ and go back to bed; I just got into bed and slept, punctuated only…

    Early this afternoon, we went to get Burger King, intending to fuel up and handle the garden. I got a "Texas Double Whopper". I should not have…
