Here I Go Again!

August 23rd, 2009 (05:06 pm)

Still sore, but I popped my vitamins (Yes Mum,
my Calcium Citrate, Omega 3 AND my Glucosamine/Chondroitin)
and a small fist full of Ibuprofen....

Need coffee!

Oooh, and tonight's Super-T is a black baby-t with the X-MEN symbol on the chest,
big black 'Dickies' cargo shorts....and a black bandana--kitchen Birkies a must!

(yes chris2342, the shirt you got me ^_^)


Be back in about 12 hours...

The average employment life of an individual
at Casino El Camino is 7 years, in an industry
where a YEAR is pushing it.

I am afraid, once again, my surly friend?
You are dead wrong.

Every shift I work I love it more,
I feel more a part of a Family that I thought
was already my family... I had no IDEA.

NO matter what happens, they have your back.

For the first time in YEARS
I am proud of where I work,
I am excited
to go in every day.

The work is HARD, it is challenging, it is rewarding.

I am freaking BANKING, my dear.

Cup & Lip

*Revisiting this Hours later*

I don't work in a factory.

Wildly enough?
The carpel tunnel
that has plagued me for several years?
Is getting odd therapy
as my gloved hands
carefully weigh the 12 ounces of blood red meat
and make a ball of it.

Other parts of me hurt, sure.
I'm getting my legs back.

But making a hundred pounds of Casino meat
into 12 oz balls?
My hand muscles uncurl.

The cold, the motion, I don't know.
I won't sleep in my braces this morning.

I have more fine muscle control than I have had
in three years.

Oh yeah, I'm saying this place is even good...
for my hands.
