I slept in! This is amazing. I managed to sleep until 06:18am this morning. I haven’t slept in past 05:30am in what feels like months! I feel like I am the only one that appreciates how big of an achievement this is.
Today is the first day of the winter schedules for Winnipeg Transit, which means that, as drivers, our shifts have also changed. I am officially no longer a spare operator and have my own regular work. I managed to sign nice late start times in the morning which will hopefully assist with the return of my social life past 7pm.
Yesterday was an awesome last day of being a spare driver though. I scored a straight shift (same bus for my whole shift) on the 15 Mountain- Sargent bus. It is one of the busiest routes, but that definitely helps to make the day go by faster. It was exceptionally busy yesterday with everyone out shopping. I can only say that there was no lack of stories that came out of those 8 hours, but it was a great shift that flew by.
Before going into work, I had time to meet up with my friend Clif for breakfast. I was running super tight on time. We went to 2 Kelly’s restaurant in Fort Garry Place. They were so accommodating and rushed my breakfast so that I could make it to work on time (I also ordered the fastest easiest breakfast they could make to accommodate rushing). Breakfast was amazing, and it was great to spend it with one of my best friends (who even spoiled me by paying for breakfast). However, running on a full stomach to go catch the bus I was supposed to take over was quite painful, but I made it on time with two minutes to spare.
I’m off today and have NOTHING on my calendar which is really exciting. I’m sure that will change when I get bored of watching old episodes of Gossip Girl in about two hours. Until then, I am going to enjoy my coffee and relax on the couch curled up in my warm blanket. Unfortunately, someone forgot to pick up milk yesterday like they said they were going to. I used all the milk in our house in my first cup of coffee, and now have to wait for the stores to open so I can have more caffeine.
Hope you have as great of a day as the day I have planned!
