The time always flies by so fast and then before you know it, it’s time to get on the plane and fly home. I really wish they lasted longer, but of course we always have other commitments, like work, to return to.
One of my sisters picked me up from the airport. She’s adventurous and can tackle all the Houston traffic, which none of my other siblings can do except for one of my brothers. Tedo, our nickname for her, can always find the time to do everything that needs doing too. I really admire that about her.
She had taken lots of time off her work at the nursery so we could have some good sister time, along with family time. She said just what I wanted to hear, “there are no schedules while you’re here.” Yeah. I love those words. I hate being a clock watcher and swear one day, if I ever do retire, the alarm clock is going out the window.
I’m glad she took all that time off, although I wasn’t expecting it because I know the bills keep coming whether you’re working or not. But she does work two jobs and probably needed a vacation too. She did go to her second job while I was there, which is working as a food demonstrator at Costco, like I do. In fact, I helped her get his second job last November because they cut hours at the plant nursery in the fall and winter months. Now she only works one day a week at Costco, but that will change when fall comes. One thing I can say is that this job is very flexible.
Here's my sister, Tedo, at her booth at Costco
Here's me at my booth in Costco in my store a year ago
She wants to come and visit me next year and is hoping to work in our store while she’s here. I know my boss would be all for it in a minute, so I hope by then her boss has his feet wet and is able to click the two keys on his computer to make it happen.
I know Tedo will be in for an awakening though because our store is a lot busier and our customers aren’t as nice as the ones in her store. But I warned her about this already.
More adventures are coming in the next post with more pictures.
