Sometimes I feel like I’m getting too old for this. Running from one end of the room to the other. Taking this order and that. Running to the table with the coffee, than again with the milk… Food, dishes, desset..
More coffee?… certainly!
I am a waitress, and I have been since I was a teenager. It’s a fantastic job for people who like instant gratification like I do. A paycheque every week plus cash in your pocket at the end of each shift. Hard to beat that! But after 20+ years of it, my knees, legs and feet are paying the price. When a long shift comes around, my wallet is far more excited than my legs are.
So, at the end of a long shift, my legs hurt. Throbbing would be a great discription actually. From my knees ight down to the tips of my toes, I am sore. Do I need better shoes? Likely.
I do wear decent sneakers most days. I can’t imagine how horrible I’d feel if I didn’t! The right tools for the job is as important as the job itself.
But even still, I hurt at the end of it. So after a long day on my feet My first stop is usually a soak in hot bath. It helps to relax the muscles in my legs and feet.
Shortly after, I plop my feet into my husbands lap. I couldn’t ask for a better man. He will rub my feet just about every night. Unless he happens to fall asleep before me. We’ve always just used a generic cream when he was rubbing my feet, but we’ve recently switched. Last month I received the Orange Naturals Pain Relief Cream with arnica, and what a difference! The throbbing actually subsides far quicker now. And I can stand up without wincing in pain.
Sometimes the right tools for the job are what happens after the job is done. A great hubby and the right pain relief cream are all the tools I need to get back on my feet, and back to work.
