I’ve been a busy bee since AEP started Friday. I was so excited to get it started off with a bang, but Friday was completely terrible sales wise as was Saturday. This weekend we all worked both Saturday and Sunday, which is exhausting. Our hours yesterday were 8 to 6:00 pm, which made for a long day.
As soon as I finished working, the Mayor and I headed to the rink for his second game of the day. He played one earlier in the afternoon that I totally missed since the rink’s LiveBarn feed was down. Obviously, that was a total buzz kill. Nonetheless, I was happy that I would be able to make it to at least one of his games this weekend.
Last night they played the Lightning, who they played last week and beat handily. Unfortunately, the small mistakes cost us the game. To be fair, the Lightning goalie stole the game. He played absolutely incredible. The boys, of course, did make him look good. There more than a few times they had the goalie and defense beat, but they couldn’t finish. In the end, a shitty turnover late in the third cost them the tie. It was definitely a disappointing outcome given how well I know the boys can play.
Post game we headed to Brass Monkey. The Brass Monkey is an absolute dive bar that happens to have pretty good food at a really nice price. Goalielocks’ game got over first, so the Hubby and him headed to the restaurant to get a table for our massive group. Thankfully, we didn’t have to wait one second for our group of twenty to be seated. The food and the company, as always, was fantastic. Yesterday I was definitely a busy bee.
Today I was up early again and back to work. I slept in, so I didn’t get my run in before starting my work day. Yesterday was abysmal and depressing on the phones, so I needed to mix it up. Since it was slow, I started watching Metallica music videos on YouTube. Once I finished S&M 2, I decided to watch Queen’s live performance at Live Aid in 1985. Freddie Mercury was an absolute beast, I would have loved to see him perform live. The music work and I had a much better day on the phones. Hopefully today’s success will carry over to tomorrow!
