What started out as a temporary job has evolved into one of the funniest, strangest and weirdest places I could have ever imagined. It keeps me shaking my head, rolling my eyes and sometimes laughing out loud! It has also become great fodder for after work drink discussions!

Tuesday In the Salt Mines!
Hello Tuesday, so glad you could come by and visit! It was a bit easier waking up and getting motivated today. I didn't even hit the snooze button when the alarm sounded this morning. My furry roommates still are wondering what the heck I am doing as I am getting ready in the morning. I think by the end of the week we should all be back in the "going to an actual office" groove.
I arrived today and The Boss was already there. He was barricaded inside his office, but he was still technically present. Yes, for those keeping track, he was still wearing a N95 mask. Once everyone arrived, he lasted a total of 30 minutes before he loudly stated he had errands to run. I'm not sure what he was planning on doing, but his normal errand of purchasing toilet paper would have to wait - there is still none to be found in this god-forsaken town!
I did some billing and a large order came in that Rachel had been pursuing for almost a year. It was nice to see and I think the warehouse staff appreciated a large order that would keep them busy for a few days. If you don't have stuff to occupy your time around here, the day drags to no end. An hour, seems like five and then you start to go a bit Nutty.
By lunchtime, The Boss had returned with pizza and drinks for everyone. He said as long as we eat ten feet apart, we could all eat together. He cracks me up! I did wonder how he was planning to eat since he would have to move his mask to do so, thus exposing his mouth and nose to the outside world. My question was quickly answered when he did not partake in the pizza lunch. He said he wasn't hungry, but would bring whatever was left home to eat later.
He left around 3 PM and he said if it was quiet, we should all pack it in around 4 PM. 4 PM arrived and it was still quiet, so we locked up and all went home. Another day in the new building done. As I walked to my car, I noticed our dumpster wasn't on site yet and the grass was going to need to be mowed soon. I guess if The Boss comes in tomorrow, I will call him on the intercom (safety first) and discuss these items. Oh, it's great to be back!
