A day at work:)

Several people have asked about my work days, etc. here at the park, so . . .

I am one of the cashiers in the gift department and am working 4-5 days a week.  The store is open from 7:30 a. m. to 9:30 p.m. so there are two shifts that alternate weekly.  I much prefer the early shift!  Early shift is from 7:30-5:30; late shift is from 11:30-9:30.  Each has a 2-3 hour break in the middle - nap time!!!  Fishing Bridge is one of the largest stores and sells everything from groceries to camping supplies to gifts of all kinds.  We stay pretty busy!!!

THE Group
Coming here I thought I would lose weight - hasn't happened:)  We have the best chef of all the locations and eat really well.  The EDR (employee dining room) is behind the store in the same building.   There is a group of us that usually eat together depending on our shifts.

Ready to ride!
Dorm life is interesting:) The dorm is above the store and right now is full.  Age group ranges from 18 to 70s if that tells you anything:)  We have a lot of people leaving in about 3 weeks to go back to college or their contract is up.  My roommate, Rose, and I get along great and will both be here until the store closes on October 1st.

Days off I either explore the park - or escape.  Living, working, and eating with the same people 24/7 means you need to escape every now and then!!!!  We get great rates at a hotel in Cody and another in Bozeman so I have taken advantage of both.

Update:  Several of my close friends have left; visitor numbers are way down; and things are coming to a close.  Most of the college kids have also left.  I wasn't expecting to form such close friendships in the few months I have been here - but its a good thing.  The store hours will change to 9 a.m to 6 p.m. for the last few weeks.  My end date is October 1 and I'll be heading to Houston.  Babysitting date with Caden on October 6th!!!  From Houston I am going to Foley, Al; Huntsville, AL; and back to TN and then???  I still have wanderlust and am thinking of buying a small trailer (and a bigger car) and wandering.  Next March's adventure is a month in Thailand with my friend, Susie.
