Well, here I am working full-time again folks. Me, the part-time hotel front desk clerk working full-time. I guess I shouldn't complain because I can certainly use the extra money to fund my quarterly trips with my Canadian Travel Buddy, Pat.
This week I worked Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, last night and again today. I was scheduled to work Sunday but former co-worker took pity on my and offered to work my shift Sunday that I was filling in for another co-worker is took off this weekend to get married . . . . on the beach.
Next weekend I'm working during the days. All this work during the height of the summer season.
Last night the hotel was PACKED.
A group had taken over the hotel (many with their children) for their annual get together for one of our senators. The hotel where I work has twenty-one rooms and three VIP suites. The hotel where I used to work in Pennsylvania had ninety-two rooms. I frequently had to check in 45 rooms all by myself. At the hotel where I work now I rarely have to check in more than five rooms. Not last night, all twenty-one rooms and three suites I had to check in. All the while the phones were ringing for reservations and folks stopping in to by tickets to the local garden tour which is taking place today as I type this blog. Talk about multi-tasking. At the Hampton Inn I was used to juggling all those balls at once.
|Pat and me in Palm Springs, California this past February. The ONLY place to spend February!|
Have a great day!
