Let’s Get The Party Started

I awoke yesterday morning with one thought…..what the hell was I thinking asking to work 5 hours on Thursday? I mean seriously I cannot. Plan was go into work and see if there was any possibility of someone taking my 5 hour shift. I would work it if I could not but fingers were crossed…….
I spoke with my supervisor to make sure she would be ok with my giving the shift away. She was. I contacted one co-worker who did not get back to my until after 3 so I moved on to the next one. A wonderful young lady. Bubbly. Sweet. She had been sick in the early part of the work and had lost both of her shifts. With fingers and toes crossed I called her. And…….I told her I loved her over and over and over when she told me that she would take the shift. So……as of yesterday at 6 p.m. I began holidays.
There was a debate…..internally…..should I shop or go home and come back tomorrow? Decision home I went and shop today.
Woke up at 5:15 a.m. when the alarm I forgot to shut off went off. Rolled over and went back to sleep until 7. As I drank my coffee I again vacillated……shop now or……no so I threw on a pair of jeans and hoodie and was out of the house by 9.
Will admit travelling the arrows caused some dizziness as I tried to figure out what I needed and where it is. Still forgot to get my olive oil. And frozen chicken drumsticks. I think I may have done my shop a little backwards but I did my best to stay on the straight and arrow path. (LMAO I could not resist) Got to the till began to unload and realized……I forgot the vitamins. Finished unloading raced to the vitamin aisle and back.
I wanted to thank my co-worker once more so I bought her a 2 pack Jumbo Reese Pieces Peanut Butter Cups with Reese’s Pieces Pieces in the peanut butter. To die for. She was on break when I was leaving  so I had to back track with my cart to leave where someone could keep eye on it and I hunted her down . Thanked her once more and fled the scene. I wanted to get home.
I am a freak. I openly and honestly admit this. I take it as a challenge to fit as much as I can into my bags. In part because I really do not want to make that many trips to and from the car to apartment. Other is…..I just really enjoy doing it. It calms something in my mind. Weird I know. And than when I get home I do it all over again. And make it all fit. Again soothing to me.
I am now ensconced on the couch. No plans to do anything else today other than maybe nap. We are going to have a food day.
Lunch: Creamy Chicken Alfredo (Frozen)
Snack: Cheese Garlic Bread
             Vegetable Spring Rolls
Supper: Shrimp & Steak
              Corn on the Cob
              Salad
Let the holidays begin.
Reading.
Writing.
Loving myself……
this is what happiness is made of.
