Up mid-morning and walked in to work. It turned somewhat cooler overnight, so my walk actually required a light jacket, which is unusual for June. In any case, I worked from noon to 8:00 PM close, and it was an extremely busy day. Part of that was having lots of customers, which is great, and part of that was due to the extremely large shipment we got -- including stuffed animals and games -- which was not so great. And just as we were getting a handle on the stuff UPS brought us, FedEx dropped off another five boxes. It was one of those days where I felt that I was struggling all day long just to keep up, and having dawdlers around closing time didn't help.
In any case, I spent most of the day running about the store, so my ankle was a wreck by the time I closed. Thankfully, queenmomcat was willing to give me a ride home. At least my evening at home was quiet. Bongo even came out of his hiding place in the cabinets upstairs for more petting. I hope he's settling in okay. I do worry that we barely see him during the day.
In any case, it looks like I'll be heading off to bed late tonight. I work at the book store again tomorrow, but that shouldn't be as bad as today. For starters, there won't be a shipment to deal with, and I think our publicity is all up-to-date. All that remains is customer service, which I generally enjoy.
