Busy Week, 4th of July prep etc.
Definitely another busy week. Worked six days (Mon-Sat) which really was the only way to get everything done in preparation for the 4th of July holiday next week. Since we are actually closed for the holiday all Thursday customers have to be assigned a new schedule for that week which then has to be communicated to them and kept track of manually. Always prone for errors of course, as much as we try to avoid it.
On top of that school has ended and some systems have begun their summer programs plus summer camps are starting up, etc. As always that tends to be a mess at first until everyone is settled and we are familiar with their way of ordering and their exact delivery location and procedures (a lot of these camps are in the middle of nowhere in Pennsylvania, 200 plus miles from any other stop, on dirt roads with no cell phone signals so there isn't much room for error)
Well, we made it through the week. Now we just have to get through next week and past the actual holiday. Mike and I have no plans for th 4th itself really. I am working again next Saturday so in a way it will be just like a regular day off. Only difference that I will receive a comp day for it that I can use later on for a vacation. So that's not bad. :)
Not too much else new really. Yesterday after work we went to see the new Superman movie "Man of Steel". It was pretty good, definitely very action packed. Not sure if it was amazing but it was entertaining for the most part.
Today we slept in and are heading up to Oxford in a bit for lunch at 121 Restaurant at the airport. Always a fun place to hang out and it's been a little while since we have been there. Originally we were thinking of doing something outdoors like a hike but the weather has been so weird, humid and unstable, almost like Florida weather. Not good outdoors activity weather.
