Tired...

My 4-day-old bruise...isn't it a beauty??? sigh! Got this on the 3rd day of work...

I have always wanted to try waitressing and I have now... I must say that this is going to be the last I will do waitressing. I have always thought that waitressing is a 'mindless' job meaning you don have to use your brains much like teaching... turns out I'm half right...hmmm...wonder if my brain is still working properly...

From the first day, I had to memorise the table number, when to give out plates and when to give out a bowl and a plate, the code for drinks and how to write the chinese name for the dishes on the set lunch menu. It took me a whole week to do that and I still get it wrong. It's not exactly rocket science but to get yourself organised...yikes... not my cup of tea.

My legs have been aching since the first day of work. I can't remember what having normal legs feel like. I haven't got the energy for anything nowadays. I come home crying on friday and saturday nights from sheer exhaustion and emotional depletion cos i used up all my energy to stay focused and keep pain at bay at work. It's going to be 2 weeks this week... and my legs are still hurting and the thought of 10 hours on my feet with a 2 hour break is hard!

This former princess is too tired to feel or do anything nowadays... but... at the moment, this is what I am going to be doing... for me, for hubby, for my pride that I will NOT quit... just yet!
