After 12 years of working the graveyard shift as a freight delivery driver, Jeff's time there came to an end on Friday night. He started his new job in Contractor Sales at a building supply company today and could not be happier. 😊 He called me when he was on his lunch break to let me know how things were going. There is definitely a learning curve since everything is computerized for inventory, but he will pick it up quickly I'm sure. He is a hands on learner and picks up things quickly once he is shown how to do something and does it a few times himself. He is now working 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. which works out great for us since it will allow us to go to Bradley and Isaiah's Pee Wee baseball games this Summer, and being just 4 miles from Jaysn and Rachel's house, will allow him to stay with them if the roads get bad this Winter and shut down.
It is not just an adjustment for him, but for me also. I am finding that I am more productive during regular daytime hours. Today I was able to get 5 loads of laundry done and folded, make split pea and ham soup and work in the garden along with getting some things cleaned on the outside of the house. I also got the gardens all watered. There are still the beds to make with freshly washed linens, but I will wait for Jeff to help with that since my back is done for the day. 😉
Jaysn came out this afternoon after work to borrow the truck so he can pick up a bed they are buying tomorrow. It was so nice to visit with him for a bit without distractions. We had fun sharing some memories and I sent him home with some sausages for the big family party this weekend. They are much easier to just grill that Rachel making homemade pizza and she needs a break at the moment. Trying to move into a new home and having family come for visits has been keeping her super busy (and stressed).
Anyway, Jeff just got home so I am going to visit with him but I wanted to check in. Be blessed!
