Last year was very difficult and I got sick so we had to leave early. Plus we were working the night shift for the extra money, and discovered that there was nothing to do here at night on the nights we were off. So we ended up wandering the aisles of the local Wal-Mart at 2 in the morning, chatting up the clerks just to hear a person's voice. One night (early morning) each week, if we weren't too tired, we drove into town to eat donuts and kolaches at Daylight Donuts with a few of the other night shift Camperforce crew.
This year we've asked for day shift, and we know so far that we'll be on days Wed-Sat, but we're in Outbound rather than Inbound. Specifically, we've been assigned to what I *think* is singles sorting - it has something to do with orders that come in for single items. I have no idea how hard it's going to be, but as it doesn't involve running up and down stairs, ok walking slowly and breathing hard, I'm hoping that it's going to be physically less taxing than Stow was last year. Only because I've got some sort of sciatica problem and I have been worried that I would not be able to do all that stair climbing.
So the Great Adventure begins in just a bit.
In other news, Bob caught 6 fish out of the pond, and they are in my freezer for a fish fry one of these days soon. I'm looking forward to that.
Tim figured out that he can walk to the grocery store - it's about 15 or 16 blocks, and then there's a Taco Mayo just a few blocks farther to the left. We discovered we like Taco Mayo a lot.
Last night we celebrated with dinner out at a place that's only been open for 3 months, called Sir Von's. It's operated by the daughter of a couple who opened the first Sir Von's in Independence in 1957. It was a fairly decent meal for the money - and an interesting combination of casual and fine dining. We will be going back, I'm sure.
Last year we enjoyed Lanning's Downtown Grill a couple of times, but this year we've managed to go twice only to discover our timing was off and they were closed. So we still have that to look forward to.
