Setting up a new store
January 11, 2017 4:25pm CST
going from nothing on the shelves to something on the shelves at a brand new store is an insane amount of work. I helped unload 2 semi's today, and all we did was stack boxes to the ceiling. The next couple days, or more, will be unstacking those boxes from the shelves, and actually GETTING product on them. People are nice, it's calm enough I haven't had tons of panic issues, so that's good. I took this week off from subbing, couldnt hit the two days, so put it in as a me on vaca sort of week. Next week I will see what my schedule is, and if i can work 2 days in or not, or set myself to non working for a month or two while I see if this job will be the one I keep till a good FT job appears. I am still watching for and applying for those. Anyways, my feet hurt. Way too much time walking on concrete. One of the guys had a pedometer thingy and he had over 5 miles walked before I left, so I had that much or more! Tomorrow I have off, so I will catch up on here then.

@JudyEv I wore a different pair of tennis shoes yesterday, figuring they would rub differently and have that toe in a heavy bandage to protect it, it seemed to help. I think I need new shoes to be honest, both pairs are old

It's amazing how much walking you do, I have 2 apps on my phone and they are both are both and within a few steps of each other. I normally do between 6,000 - 10,000 per day, my highest being 18,000. I hope your feet are feeling better.

You did put in a hard day if you walked 5 miles. I only walk 3 on an average teaching day, circulating around the classroom and going back and forth to the cafeteria and such. How do I know? I carry a Fitbit in my pocket, and my phone keeps up with it, too.
