July Twenty First

 

Country Birdhouses WPpv

I have this weekend off… I worked the last two weekends due to vacation requests… so now I am off this weekend and next weekend…

I have been pondering posting for a new position… it would be a promotion to salary and a raise as it is the position that my boss has but at a much smaller store… actually one of the managers at my store got a promotion to that store and suggested to my store manager that he take me with him… store manager said no, anyone else but me… not because I wasn’t qualified but because I am doing a good job and he didn’t want to lose me… then the other day my new boss brought up the position and that what she had seen of me so far impressed her and that I should apply for the position as they had no good candidates yet…

So just being complimented this week put me in a good mood at work…

Do I want to do it… I don’t know… with hubby not working, it would make sense with a raise involved… however I would have to commute 45 minutes each way… and since it is a small store and salary I would have to work more days and hours… I’ve only been back in management just over a year now, so wondering if I’m really ready… I’ve just gotten settled in my position in shoes and still trying to make a name for myself… although my sales are up this year which is why my boss doesn’t want me to leave…

Then there is rumor of changes coming but we don’t know when… changing some things back to the way they were 18 yrs ago, if what they are saying will happen how I’m thinking… meaning we will either need less supervisors or more…

Maybe this week hubby and I will take a drive to the other store to get the feel of it… supposedly since it’s much smaller then my store in a much smaller town, it’s very laid back and quieter…

Today we slept in a bit and hubby made egg mcmuffins without the Mc… I vacuumed, wiped down the bathrooms a bit, washed the rugs and towels, washed son3’s bedding, cut son3’s hair, filled the birdfeeders and been on the laptop… still lots else I wanted to do but here it is already 5pm…

Hubby mowed the back yard and cleaned up the backyard, went to Supercuts for his haircut and is now making turkey burgers for dinner…

Son2 and son3 have been on the computers and playing video games and being bored in between… only three more weeks til school starts… son2 did mow the front yard and empty the dishwasher…

Son1 is out and about and who knows where or with who…

Son2 and I were discussing moving rooms around once son1 moves out… the computer desk in son2’s room and the computer desk in the art room will go into the front room once son1 moves out… then son2 is giving son3 his bed, son3 is getting rid of his cabin bed as he is getting too big for it, and son1 is giving son2 his futon bed… then once son1 is cleared out of the front living room, we will move everything from the art room there temporarily… son2 is moving into the art room which used to be son1’s room before he moved out the first time and is closer to the boy’s bathroom… and then the art room stuff will move back into son2’s old room which used to be the computer room way back when son2 and son3 were little and shared a room…  first however son2 has to start cleaning his room as he mentioned at the beginning of summer he wanted to redo his room since he would be going to college… he hasn’t done anything yet…

Has anyone ever been to Comic Con… Last year son2 said he was going this year as he would be 18 and he could go if he wanted as he would be an adult and even if he didn’t have a job yet he would sleep in his car… lol… no he didn’t go… and yet I never really thought about it before but it would be a really cool place to go for vacation… above is a picture I took from Facebook of the cast of Supernatural at Comic Con this year…

I have not been to Comic Con, but we drove down around it last weekend because son works in that area valeting so we wanted to get a feel of the people. Croweded, but it looked like fun to see people dressed in costume. Another lady who lives in this area and I follow her blog, she went. She said wall to wall people, but she/daughter got to see the panels they wanted to see. If you guys come down next year, you'll have to let me know, its only 15 minutes or so away from where I live.

Good rearranging of rooms when Son1 moves out. Will be interesting to have the space back and also not wondering where he's at when he's not at home :)

Consider the cost of gas and your time with the commute. Gas is so fickle these days, up one month, down the next, but that would be a major consideration to me when considering a new position with that commute and how much time you would lose in the commute as opposed to being at home (and blogging possibly :)

enjoy your weekends off!

In this day and age with the way thigs are financially, any move upward is a good move. I say you should go for it. Most people do commute about 45 miutes each way these days.
