Proving, once again, that it is possible to be asleep on one's feet.

I worked again today.  That makes 2 days in a row.  A first for me in over 10 years.  And I get to work tomorrow & Monday as well.  One of the cooks is having problems with her wrist and will be off at least until Tuesday....possibly longer depending on what the doctor says about it.

While I do not spend my days lounging on the couch watching soaps & eating bon-bons, I'm also not used to being on my feet on a concrete floor for 7 hours a day.  I'm also not used to getting up & starting my day at 5:30 in the morning.  I'm much more comfortable with my routine of getting the FarmHands up around 6:30/6:45, getting them fed & clothed & out the door, then crashing back on the couch for a nap before picking Bitsy up from school (there's other things that happen during that time, but the main event is my nap).  Now my nap has to be postponed until 2 o'clock or later.  I'm not sure I'm OK with this.

If I'm going to do this very much, I'm going to have to work on my stamina.  Otherwise we'll have to hire a nanny to care for the FarmHands every night while I attempt to recover from my stint in Lunch Lady Land.

At least I learned how to make peach cobbler.

wait...you *learned* to make peach cobbler?

How did you not know that already???

No *wonder* the 'Hands are so...well...crazy!


Totally kidding of course...

hang in there - about the time you're subbing job is over, you'll totally have this amazing routine of getting up early and getting things done...otherwise, you'll just sleep until summer break...

either way, you'll be good!

You know you need to contact Grandma about where she gets her sexy shoes. $100 bucks says they help your feet stay somewhat alive on the concrete, and the bonus is that they will help keep any boys from falling in love with you. ;)
