When we left for work Sunday it was clear and quite dry. When I glanced out one of the cafeteria windows during lunch it was sunny and still clear. When we exited the FC at 5 pm it was to a gentle rain. In between all that we 'picked', and we 'picked', and we 'picked'. And now we enter uncharted territory this time around.....our fourth and fifth consecutive 10 hour shifts are coming up Monday and Tuesday. Our legs and feet are tired, but we are doing just fine. At the end of Sunday's 10 hour shift I was out of gas mentally and physically, but I knew I would recover and be ready to go again on Monday.....at least that is my fervent hope.
TLE managed to escape the gravitational pull of Building 'C' at the end of the day to do some picking in Building 'A' in Pick Mods A and B. I, on the other hand, toiled away my hours in Pick Mod 'E', this time on all 4 floors, with an ever so brief foray into Pick Mod 'F', so I finally 'hit for the cycle'. And that my friends was the highlight of my 'picking' day. Otherwise it was just the same old same old......wash, rinse, dry and repeat.
Things have slowed a little here at SDF1, and we are being offered 'VTO' (Voluntary Time Off) virtually everyday, and several times during the day. For instance we could have gone home for the day at our 9 am break, and then again at our 2:30 pm break. We didn't become aware of the 9 am VTO offering until we got home and found the messages on our phones, which we don't take to work. The second one came over our scanners during our 2:30 pm break, but by that time we only had 2 hours to go, so why go home, right? I'm not sure why they sent a text message on the 9 am VTO because we are not allowed to have our phones on our persons on the floor while working. If you get caught with a phone while going through security as you exit the building you get pretty much a full body cavity search. The only real time we have to look at our phones would be during the lunch break, so we just leave them at home. It is amazing that we can go almost 11 hours without looking at our phones five days a week......who would have thought, right?
Well, that is a recap of our scintillating Sunday.....not much more to tell.....TLE did make a wonderful 'chili size' for dinner, and I mean it was wonderful. I cherished every single bite. Characterizing it as 'wonderful' seems so inadequate, and borders on insulting it was that good.
Thanks for stopping by!
