Well, I can honestly say that I am already feeling more comfortable at Perkins than I ever felt at Maurice’s. I mean, fist of all it’s nice to not have to push credit cards on anyone. And everyone at Perkins is SO helpful, whereas at Maurice’s it sometimes felt like you had to figure out everything by yourself.
I worked from about 3:30 to 8:30 on Friday night and was in again from 8:30 to 3:30 on Saturday morning. I was a little freaked out about Saturday morning because most of Perkins’ breakfasts come with all these different sides and it’s hard to remember what goes with what. However, I made it through without too many issues and ended up making about $16 an hour. Not too shabby, definitely more than I was making at Maurice’s!
Saturday night Dustin, Ryan and I made steaks with baked potatoes and salad for dinner. It was AMAZING. I can’t believe I ever didn’t like steak (like I’ve mentioned, I’m a picky eater and I tend to go through food phases so I had a phase where I HATED red meat). Dinner was awesome AND it was the first thing I’d eaten all day. Have I mentioned I’m NEVER hungry when I work?
On Sunday we had a sibling Disney movie marathon day. We made frozen pizzas and tater tots (our movie marathon staples), had beer and whine and watched Disney movies. It was pretty awesome. We ended up watching Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Lady and the Tramp, The Sword in the Stone and Aladdin. Is it cool or not that I still remember most of the words to the songs in Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin? Those are some of my favorites.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend as well. Happy Monday!
P.S. Happy last day of January, woo-hoo!!
