What was even going on the last time I posted? I hadn't started at chase right? Well, obviously I have now, and I even did a week going into Chicago for Chase training (8:30a-5:30p not including train time) and coming back to work at Target until 10:30p. It was the week before Thanksgiving, and it was horrible. Thanksgiving week was pretty awful, too, due to sheer number of hours spent working. Black Friday, and this will forever be my one retail horror story (I hope), I worked the bank 8a-1p, then Target 1:30p-12a. Oh, this is after working Thanksgiving Wednesday from 9p to 5a on Thanksgiving. Awesome?
Basically, I haven't posted (or sewn, or read, or played, or anything) because I honestly haven't had time. The first couple of weeks I was too exhausted from trying to absorb and learn everything. Then the next couple of weeks were the ones above, where I worked upwards of 60 hours and used the other hours for sleep. I haven't been to the gym in ages (but I get to go tomorrow! Yay! I hate that I'm one of these people now!), but fortunately the physicality of the Target job and the lack of time for snacking/inactivity mean I've continued to lose weight, which is pretty great. I'll see what the scale says Friday morning, but if it hasn't changed from this weekend, I'll only have missed my goal of 50lbs down by my birthday (Friday) by 2lbs. Which is pretty damn good, I'd say.
So yeah - you haven't missed too much. There have been a couple of upheavals in various capacities, but I don't really have the energy to talk about them in detail right now - plus you probably know about them if you're reading this? I don't know - I'm assuming.
I have, however, finally gotten an internet-capable phone, so I might become more active (generally - not necessarily here?) during breaks and lunches and so on. I hope so, at least. I've been missing my internet. Let's hope the separation was only temporary.
