It's Been Two Months

 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.

Yeah, I'm fortunate. I love the location, I enjoy the tasks, the people are great, and the cat is endlessly amusing.
