Early To Rise

I woke up at 2:40 AM.

Not to an alarm, no, that was set for 3:00 AM. I knew in the back of my mind to get moving.

The boss was coming from the beach. At least a two-hour drive. Kristen was coming from the coast as well on another two-hour drive from another town.

When people put themselves out for me I like to show some small form of appreciation ahead of time.

I got to the store at 4:40 AM, hung mods, gathered other supplies, and went to work on the first section. They both showed up close to 5:00 AM.

We set to work and had the job done in about four hours. We had fun. I miss working with people who can put in the effort and have fun as a team.

I’m healthy. My heart rate was kept up today.

Wealthy? Well, I am in overtime now with a day to go for the week. It adds a nice chunk of change to the check.

Wise? No, not from any experience today, but I did work ahead to finish off projects at two other stores. It’s always good to be early with projects because you never know what might happen next.

My original plan was to be at only one store tomorrow and have a short-ish day. Maybe polish up a few rough spots at that store, but no.

The company decided to drop a blitz activity on all stores tomorrow. So it was wise to work as I did today.

A 13.5 hour day gives you a bit of perspective. It was rough but worth it.

Tomorrow is Friday. I’m going into the day with my head down and bulling my way through. I’ll walk out tired but satisfied.

There’s dignity in working for a living.

Tell β€˜em, Gary.

That’s it. That’s the post.
