My head is spinning and my shoulders are all tensed up. I've been working for the last two hours straight on charts and graphs for a presentation that I have to give to my boss tomorrow. I enjoy doing it but it is stress inducing. Every quarter those of us in supervision each have to present and put into action some plan or scheme to save money or be more productive. The first quarter of our new business year begins in April.

My idea has to do with rerouting freight in our warehouse from temporary storage in crates to temporary storage on small motorized trailers. It took me weeks of observing my operation and gathering data to come up with this. I know I'll get resistance from my workers on it because it may slow them down a bit- they will have to spend a little more time separating freight- but it will speed up another part of the operation by double, so it's better for the overall. I just have to make them understand that.

Anyway it is warm here today. In fact it's warmer outside right now that it is in the warehouse. I'm fighting the chills from a constant draft from somewhere right now. I haven't figured out where it's coming from yet.

I slept pretty well last night. I slept even better this morning. It seems like I get my most fitful sleep after 4:00 AM for some reason. It's a mystery to me as to why. I'm just glad to be getting it.


  1. Take the sleep when you can get it, regardless of the time. lol. Good luck with your proposal to your higher-ups. Hugs.

  2. Thank you. I've worked pretty hard on it. You know old saying: Let's run it up the flagpole and see who salutes...
