What a week!
Of course black Friday and cyber Monday
were included in this last work cycle.
All hands on deck is the norm.
This year they started 11 hour days,
which meant we had to change our schedule from 6:30 am to 5 pm
to 6 am to 5:30 pm.
We did one 11 hour day on black Friday,
but on Saturday there were several times where
we actually had to stop picking because
the packers couldn't keep up.
Because of that we decided to take it day by day,
so the next 2 days we left at 4:30.
We weren't the only ones :-)
By cyber Monday they were offering a $5 gift card
if anyone would stay the extra hour...
I don't think so :-)
The end of the day we all look like zombies...
George got moved to the catwalk.
He stands and watches totes go by on the conveyor,
from 30' up!
He's there in case they jam up, and he can take care of it.
It's a boring job he says, and he almost dozes off :-)
We are so ready to get out of here.
We won't know our release date for a few more weeks,
but we're hoping it is earlier than the 23rd.
We have made reservations at James Island County Park in Charleston, SC.
My Mom will be arriving there on the 26th
after being on a cruise from Jacksonville.
Due to the holiday period, we had to make the reservations,
from the 21st to the 27th.
No other times!
We may get there a couple days late, but definitely
will be able to enjoy the
George and I are excited to be able to see that,
and to spend some time with Mom.
