MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Saturday morning… barely

It’s about ten minutes before Noon on this last Saturday of November 2022 and I am only an hour into my day.

Last night, The Park closed at 10 PM Friday night but my shift did not conclude until 11 PM. Lochlan was kind enough to drive me home and after letting out the dogs, I ate two hotdogs and crawled into bed. It was an incredibly busy night with almost no breaks and lines sometimes wrapping around a lap. Lochlan was supposed to be in The Roundhouse with me but at the last minute he was moved to another site, much to our mutual disappointment as we developed a smooth working process. Last evening, despite great Guests, it was not as exciting as the previous Wednesday shift, and the flow was often a bit rugged.

The nice part of being in The Roundhouse is the number of steps I am logging. I have been getting off the bus on Main Street and Stone Mill so I can take the leisurely walk over to The Park to get some fresh air and exercise. Wednesday, I got 9,829 steps and Friday ended with 9,412 steps. A nice accomplishment.

Tonight, my shift ends at 11 PM and I don’t return to The Park until Monday. Sunday and Tuesday are my days dedicated to tightly packed lessons.

I need to spend a bit more time with The Quartet as I know they have missed me greatly Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. They don’t understand my new schedule and the lengthy amounts of alone time. I leave at 2 PM for 3:30 PM shift starts and then Canine Crew members come around 6 PM to feed and potty the pooches. It’s another five to six hours before I return. I don’t think they’ve ever had this much alone time.

I need to attend to some things before getting ready to leave for The Park.

Make it a great day!
