Living La Vida Busy

Blessings Darlings!

Yes, I've become very scarce online lately. Adding an evening job to my day job ... no surprise that I don't have much time for Facebook or for blogging!

Love the grill cook stuff, don't mind when emergencies mean that I, as least trained grill cook, get shifted to dish tank (I did that volunteering at a Food Coop, so I didn't need training, just had to show me what button to push on the dish washer). They may have me cross train to do prep as well, which I also did at the coop.

The only problems I've had have been my feet aching from standing for all but 15 minutes of 8 hour shifts and, of course, being tired while adjusting to my new schedule.

Sure, it's not in my field and the hourly rate is probably 1/2 of what I'd get in my field. But any 'non-day' job in my field would have been back to crisis intervention/up all night stuff. Here, even on the 'worst' night, I'll be home by midnight. And I don't have to deal with life-and-death crises. No suicide hotlines. No rape hotlines. No running out at all hours to hospitals to support rape victims. No overnights in shelters.

Instead, the worst that can happen is that it takes 'too long' for customers to get their food, or their food is cold, or the toast or bacon too crisp. Yes, we all try to avoid these things happening, but if things get busy and they DO happen ... no one dies.

This is a luxury I'm ready for.

Frondly, Fern
