I guess I haven't caught up on my sleep. I woke up late this morning, and I was kind of out of it for most of the day. This did not make my time at work any easier, and I made some stupid mistakes while I was on the clock. Not anything unrepairable, but indicators that I could have used another day off this week.

Anyways, I walked in to work today, where I pulled a noon to 8:00 PM shift. There weren't that many customers, and the shipment for the day was small, which is good, as the owner left me a very long lists of tasks to carry out. And it was in doing those tasks that I made several mistakes. For starters, I faxed the wrong order to one of our sales agents, which necessitated an apologetic e-mail and resending the fax. I also kept making simple and repeated mistakes as I was filling out purchase orders. It was that sort of day. Even the most mindless of my tasks -- stuffing holiday flyers into plastic bags -- took longer than it should have because of a certain amount of clumsiness on my part. It was that sort of day.

By the end of my shift I was feeling tired and completely gormless, and I called queenmomcat to come pick me up rather than walking home. She's been having kind of a blah day too, so we decided to go out for dinner. That turned out to be a good idea. We perked each other up; I got to complain about my day to a sympathetic ear, and she got to do the same; and we had some pretty good food.

Back home, I spent some time online catching up for the day, and now I'm ready for a late bedtime. I work at the book store again tomorrow, and then I have Sunday off to catch up around the house. Should keep me busy.
