Just finished my first 20 hour week. I am exhausted but glad I had those first few days where it was quiet so I could start to remember all the things I have forgotten. Next weekend I will need to actually work.
My weekend neighbors have packed up and left for the week and it is once again quiet. I came home Saturday night to a gourmet meal of prime rib, shrimp, new potatoes, veggies, pie and a roaring fire. Such fabulous neighbors that I wish I had more time to spend with them during the weekends. I work 8 hours on Friday and Saturday so by the time I come home on Saturday night I feel somewhat drained with another 4 hours to work on Sunday. Not only am I working on Sundays this year, but I am working an earlier shift, 10 AM - 2 PM, so that may prove to be a bit of a challenge. Other than that, I do not regret coming back for another summer at the Hood as it feels comfortable and much calmer than last year.
One 20 hour shift done, more to come.
