For those of you who follow this blog regularly, you'll notice there's been a blip in my usual daily posting. That's because I worked the day shift at the hotel this weekend. My regular hours are Wednesdays and Thursdays, 3 pm to 11 pm. Occasionally I am asked to work for one (or two) of the regular full time front desk agents (we don't call them "hotel front desk CLERKS these days don't you know). This weekend was one of those weekends.
Wasn't so bad although I do have to get up before the birds (5 am) in order to get to work in time to set out the breakfast by 7:30 am. Usually I like to sleep in until about 7 am or later. But as I said, working this weekend wasn't so bad, helped a lot I'm sure by a hotel almost full of very pleasant guests.
Our guests are usually retirees for a weekend getaway, or soon to be retirees looking to move to Delaware and the occasional newlyweds (which we had this weekend). These folks are almost always pleasant, non-demanding and a pleasure to be of service to. Plus, it helped that this weekend we had almost perfect weather. Clear blue skies and a brisk bite in the air. We could've used maybe ten degrees warmer but brisk air felt good.

Bill misses me terribly when I'm gone from the house all day, even though when I am at our house I'm either on my computer, eating or taking a nap. At least I'm in the house which seems to give him some comfort. I have to admit it is nice to be wanted and cared for and to care for someone.
The only problem I have with working these irregular hours is that it throws off my digestive system (I get constipated because I can't go to the bathroom at work - yeah, I said it). Other than that, and missing my daily blog entries, not a bad weekend of work at all.
Now I do it all over again in two weeks. Then I work the night shift (3 pm to 11 pm) for my other full time co-worker. Don't cry for me (Argentina) though, I'm taking off two weeks at the end of August to visit…….guess where? Yep, Canada (read prior blog post for context).
Time to watch more episodes of "The Good Wife" now (oh I am addicted to this show, it is SOOO GOOD).
Have a good night!
