:*:*:*:*GOING STRONG*:*:*:*:

Well here i am being able to relax and also able to let all of you know to what is going on with my new job! First i would like to say that YES i am very tired, the reason for this is due to having to do a lot of labor work......OMG.......I have to mop, stock the soda & beer walk-in, clean the bathroom and do windows plus wait on customers at the front counter. This is done daily, there is a lot more duties involved, but i am just giving you guys an idea to what is to be done by me daily when i am there....... Now i have just learned that i will be starting work at 6:00 am in the morning starting next Monday. I was only working 10:00 am to 2:00 pm daily. Now I will be opening the store at 6:00 am to 2:30 pm daily......OMG........Here i go again, thinking that 4 hrs. a day was killing me, now i will be doing 8 hrs. a day!!!!!! Don't get me wrong, i have done this kind of work all my life. But it has been a year since i have had to be this physical, so that is why i am BITCHING so much........GIGGLES.........Anyway, this means that my sister will be training me more on the computer register's so that i will be ready to be on my own this coming Monday. I was also told that once i am the main person up front that would mean that i would not be having to do so much labor work. YIPPEE, THANK GOD, Cause my poor hips and lower back are killing me!!! I just hope i will get the computers down o.k? I am just thankful that my boss is having my sister do the training with me :) I requested it cause she knows how i am and because of my hearing loss she will be able to help me focus on those people that are trying to get gas. The first day being up front my sister ask me if i could hear that? Of course i said hear what? She said the beeping sounds, i said OMG that is the sounds for the gas pumps huh????? I started to panic and said to her maybe i shouldn't be working up front cause of my hearing loss!!!! Then, because my sister knows me so well, she proceeds to calm me down and said that we will do what you are best at...Confused again, but she said because of your hearing loss what do you do best with it because of the problem? She pointed to her eyes, I said my eyes, of course that"s how i have gotten through life is to use my eyes more......That is how i understand to what people are saying to me. I guess you can say kinda like sign language but more like body language. So she told me to calm down and you will be o.k, you will be watching more then trying to hear the beep sounds. My sister has so much faith in me and i think that is why i have not walked off of this job yet. I have worked at a super market for years. I have done the same kind of work but i have never dealt with gas pumps or Lottery!!! This is very confusing to me, but my lovely sister tells me that i have been doing really good and that everybody is very please with me working there. Of course i said to her that you aren't just saying that because i am your sister are you? Hee,Hee......She said NO, and told me that i am picking things up really fast compared to some of the others that are still having problems with everything that have been at this job longer then me. That made me feel really good to hear that. And to top it off i am hearing that from my other co-workers as well :) CHEERS......So everybody, i will have to fill you in more when i start working more up front starting next Monday! Wish me luck and i hope that i don't mess up to much......GIGGLES......Hugs and Blessings to all of you!
