Made My Day

I ended up cleaning up the beans and veggies and things like Chef Boyardee & Zoodles. Had two orders but both were regular customers and their orders easy peasy to put together. It has been about six months since the last time I did the can aisle and cleaned up boxes, brought all the product forward. It is so satisfying at the end of the day to stand back and admire my hard work.

As I was working on the shelves customers were going by and chatting with me. Saying hello. Asking where they can find product. And I told them all. My mood had broken plus the Java Monster Energy drink I had at noon kept me awake. Given that someone (that would be Loki) decided that he was going to cry and whine for food. I threw a pillow at him and I think that it might have connected because I heard a little merp.

I felt guilty then and got up. Fed them and decided that I was up may as well start my day. Coffee. Painted. Talk to friends. Played my games on my phone.

Around 6:40ish I began to clean. Got everything done but washing the floors. I will probably end up doing it yet but right now enjoying the couch and coffee. I have to eat soon. But it is so hot I don’t want to cook. Cereal it will be.

Anyhow back to work.

After small traffic jams down the aisle it cleared up for a little bit. No people and I am lost in my own world. One of my regular customers comes along and we begin to chat.

As she is wheeling away from me and I wish her a good day she turns and says:

It always makes my day to see you.

I smiled and probably blushed a little bit. I thanked her and told her how sweet she was.

Today more than made up for the last two days that is for sure.
