And I mean it. I knew there was going to be a lot of walking as Merchandise Handler (heh, my "title" at American Girl Place) but I didn't quite expect THAT MUCH. I'm even more sore than I was on my first day as a lister for the Census back in spring! Thank goodness we have Chinese medicine patches that helps quite a bit (best used after a hot bath/shower and overnight).

How's working there? Exhausting and maybe a bit demanding. I'm working the the Historical Characters section where there are rooms set up for each of the Historical dolls - for example, Felicity would have colonial materials in a large display, alongside her dolls and numerous accessories so people can see what comes with her (such as her horse Penny, her sleeping clothes, table and tea set, etc.). Most of the time, it's just making sure the dolls are properly displayed on the floor and there's enough of their peripherals. Yesterday, I more or less finagling the radio and got a few words for not responding to the radio as often as I should, and I won't deny that I certainly deserved it (however, in my defense, I rarely had to use a radio that much in the past, so that's one thing to quickly learn).

The bright side? Hearing the delight and excitement in the girls' voices when they see the various displays and rooms, their eyes practically shining.

My best wishes that you swiftly become radio-savvy. Glad you're making people happy, and here's hoping you can get a good soak in soon.

Also, is it wrong for me to be glad to see this and know you're still alive, albeit exhausted?

Oh yeah, on your feet all day with that kind of thing, I know how that goes - for some reason that kind of running around wears me out more than an all-day cross country hike. Seeing the girls get all excited sounds like lots of fun though!
