A long time coming.
Currently: I have my feet soaking in a rubber maid tub full of hot water. It's divine. My feet have taken a BEATING since starting at the new restaurant. I have you tell you though...I've been enjoying the crap out of it. It's a beautiful restaurant, in a beautiful hotel and it's so easy to take pride in your work when you feel like you're working in an old dollhouse. Locals congregate there and their presence makes the bar area feel like 'Cheers' do you love 'Cheers'? I do. In contrast, the dining room, which includes a loft area that looks over the lobby below and brings you eye level to a one of a kind Baccarat crystal chandelier, is full of hotel patrons from all over the globe. The food is delicious too. I can't quite put into words how relieved I am to feel so at home in this new job. I'm also FINALLY making some steady money which is...important right now. This week's highlights include receiving a $25 tip for delivering a single slice of cheesecake to a room upstairs and watching REO Speedwagon check in to the hotel earlier tonight. I wanted to bug them and shake their hands and all but...I figured I would let them get settled in peace and not weird them out. I'm loving this new job of mine so far, knock on wood.
I'll be visiting my parents tomorrow and I'm overjoyed to be doing that. I need a hug from my Mom and Dad like you wouldn't believe. I could also do with a little car trip, to get some thinking done.
Life is good.
