Well, today was quite trying. Not talking to Sarah for days didn't help my mood either. I don't like it when she calls it a "fix", but I was feeling the withdrawal.

I went to see Dr. Russell this morning at 9:15, and he said I was doing well. Karen was there also, and she agreed. I hadn't seen her for about a year, and it was nice to catch up a bit. After I came home, I decided (wisely) to go back to bed for a nap. I am so glad that I did.

My workday starts at 2pm on Wednesdays, and shortly after I went in, Greg called out. Now, Angel works six days a week, and this is his only day off. So, I worked without any inside help all night. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr... I did all of the prep work that Greg would do before 4pm, and then I sweated for over three hours straight. Of course, all three of the evening drivers showed up late. It was very stressful, and I actually dropped two pizzas on the floor during the rush, and had to remake them. Keep in mind that I am answering the phones to take orders, making the pizzas, getting them out of the oven, and ringing up customers. In my spare moments, I drank about a gallon of water, and did the dishes. I did not want them all to pile up, since I would probably have to wash them later.

Still, I was able to relax after that, and eat some ice cream. I cleaned up the store before closing, and got out at a reasonable hour to talk to Sarah. Of course, Mike was playing Diablo 2 on my computer when I came home... but I am actually talking to her right now, so things are improving.
