Today, with the triumphant return of my coworker Jim, I was able to take my first day off in exactly two months, it's a bit weird not having any claim on my time. Unfortunately. There isn't a lot to do with the COVID resurgence, not for a responsible lad. I didn't realize how much of the structure of my life was imposed by the exigencies of understaffing.
Frankly, I slept much of the day. I shift from a couple of overnight shifts on weekdays to three afternoon-to-midnight shifts on the weekends, so today was acclimatization day. Tomorrow is supposed to be rainy day, so I will earmark it for housecleaning and perhaps podcast listening. Yeah, excitement!
Don't get me wrong, I love my job, I love being on-site. To be honest, the OT was also welcome, I paid off a car loan six months early. Maybe I love being at work too much, because adjusting to having a day off was kinda weird.... you forget a lot in two months.
