It's going to be a very busy and hot summer. I can tell that I am not going to be sitting in my nice air conditioned home much the next couple of months. That means that I may not be sewing much either. I am hoping to get in to the studio at least once a week, but you never know. For those of you who don't know, I am doing an externship with a local restaurant. When I signed up, I was told I would work about 30 hours a week for 4 weeks. I have already worked about 18 hours and that may not seem like a lot now that I have written it down, but I have had the privilege of being cut two nights so I was scheduled to work 6 more hours - the bad thing for me is that I still have three more days to go!! I am only half way through my work week!! I AM EXHAUSTED!! Already. It is hot, hot, hot in the kitchen and when you are moving all the time, I bet I have sweated off at least a pound or two! that is the good thing. The bad thing is that I haven't been cooking yet and I know it will be much hotter around the stoves. I think they have fans running on those people. I have been working where there are no fans. I try and move to the coolest spot when I get a chance.
Tonight I think the manager felt sorry for me and he cut me 2 hours early and bought me dinner! I worked 7 hours today! (yea, it was supposed to be 9) I am not used to this! Restaurant business is hard, hard work! I knew that, but I had only seen it as a cashier or waitress. I am getting to see it from all sides in the next few weeks. I am almost looking forward to working summer volleyball where I basically sit for 8 hours at a time. As long as the air conditioner is working in the gym, it's relatively cool. Well, I am off to the showers, and hitting the hay. It's back to work tomorrow morning to assist in hosting for a few hours and then split shifting at night. busy, busy, busy!!
So, if you don't see quilting stuff up here for awhile, you know what I am doing.
