June Fourth

Cute-bear-30

I am off today… and it has been raining all day… all three boys have been on video games all day… girlfriend is over now and son1 is getting ready to go out to see Bridesmaids and dinner… I have lasagna in the oven for me, hubby and son2 and son3… now to decide what we will watch tonight…

Hubby and I took a ride to his new job to pick up his paycheck… then we stopped at the Sears near there to check on their shoe department as they also have a visit this week… they are so tiny though compared to my store… I’m sure they will be ready as I only saw a couple of things that needed fixing and they still have four days in which to do it… hubby found another dress shirt while we were there…

Then we stopped at my store… hubby understands what I mean now when I say the customers just leave the shoes all over the floor and don’t put anything away… I only have three days til the visit and we have A LOT to fix… and hubby found a dress shirt while we were there too…

My attitude has changed once again however and I am enjoying my day off…

Friday night I tried very hard to get things done in shoes but everything that could go wrong or take me away did… my full timer called out in the day… and one of my closers called out at night… the computers were freezing up and it took forever to print my reports and schedule… I was manager on duty from 3-6 and was called all over the store… After dinner I tried helping the closer in shoes clean up but I had to do store closing duties and had problems with one duty that caused me to get behind in that the store was closed and I wasn’t done yet… then I was going to help my shoe associate again as we stay an hour after closing and we usually get done with procedures a half hour before we leave but I was stuck as another department took until the last minute to turn in their department so it was time to go home… So I have heard God loud and clear that I am not in control, He is and I can only do my best… We have three days and all my associates are constantly working between helping customers and cleaning… plus old supervisor is helping for two days… I just want it to be over! and I don’t want him to come back for months so we can get on a routine and get things done…

Hubby’s work was so nice and clean… where is hubby…. Oh, he’s playing video games too now…

The kittens are still so cute… my distraction from work when I get home… Holly is still so mad… I don’t think she is ever going to like the kittens… she hisses at them and at us… she chases them down and swats at them and swats at us… I try to pick her up but afraid she is going to rip out my throat in one swipe of her paw… she sits off to the side of everyone and growls very quietly… or goes outside or just stays in the garage…

Still an hour til the lasagna will be done… and I am snacking… let me go see what needs doing around the house besides Frontierville on Facebook…

On this day, God wants you to know

... that sometimes it may feel too hard to do it alone. Sometimes it may seem like you can't figure it out by yourself. Sometimes will and strength and courage are not enough. Sometimes in your life you will need to call out for help. Call on God. God will be there.

Happy Journaling…

poor Hollie! I bet she feels like her place got violated by all the "young ones" moving in! I hope she warms up to them soon!

glad hubby was able to find some work shirts he needed and that he got a pay check ;)

I'm with you; I'll be glad when the visit is over since I know that will take a lot of stress off of you and you can get back to the business of trying to run the department as best you can!

betty
