January Fourth

 

fetch

It’s Friday and already noon… I close today…

So only have a moment to blog… Hubby and I spent the morning talking and making plans…

I am on vacation next week… lots to do…

Need to make hubby and I a list…

What have I been doing since last I blogged…

I worked on New Year’s Day…Very busy and it went fast…

Son1 didn’t pick up Danny til 10:30pm on New Year’s… I was very grumpy with a headache and went to bed… it threw off the whole evening of getting the boys to bed and for hubby and I to settle for the night… however son1 and DIL were the ones who had to get up for work the next morning, we had the day off…

Day after New Year’s I was off… so we went out for the day… Hubby, I and the boys… we went to the Dollar Store… the Book Nook, used book store… Barnes and Noble… and the grocery store for pizza, salads, chicken strips, orange chicken, chips… special treat for dinner…

Yesterday back to work… we are still so very busy… lots of returns and shoppers… we can’t get anything cleaned up… hopefully this weekend I can finish getting my counts updated and finish mating up the women’s fashion boots that got tore up… and then address the mismate wall of all the other lost shoes… and that’s only a fraction of everything we need to get done…

I received the PGE bill the other day and discovered the little heaters are not any cheaper then running the central heating throughout the house… which needs a new circuit board… but then I looked at last year’s bill and they are pretty much the same cost…. so we have decided again not to fix the central heating, as the part would have to be ordered and schedule an appointment to have the work done, so could be another month and possibly warmer by then… so instead we are going to get the cars worked on, since we need them to get to work and look for jobs… hubby’s car needs an oil change, smogged and registration paid… and my car needs an oil change and the transmission fluid flushed… then eventually they will both need tune ups but not quite yet…

Oh, one more thing on New Year’s Day………………….

I GOT THE HARDWARE LEAD POSITION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I start when I get back from vacation…

I got a raise…

It hasn’t been announced at work yet as not everyone who applied had been talked to… but I think yesterday they were… as a few managers were telling me congratulations, so it is starting to get out, you know how gossip spreads…

I did tell one of my associates as I did not want her to hear from someone else… She cried…. she told another associate on the team as she needed support… I wanted to tell a few others on the team as I’d rather they hear from me, but we were so busy yesterday I didn’t get to talk to anyone…

I’m very excited, and yet I’m torn and nervous…

I also feel since it’s so hush hush, I haven’t been allowed to be excited…

And my closing all weekend, I haven’t been available to be at the morning meetings so it can be announced… I’m sure when I come back from vacation it will be announced, so my first day of starting will be more exciting…

My last day in shoes is Sunday… after waiting so long, it’s all going so fast…

When others would say oh well, I’m leaving, I am frantically trying to get things done and cleaned up before I leave shoes…

I can’t believe it, after eight and a half years, I am finally leaving shoes, on to something new…

Time to get ready for work, only three days left in shoes…

 

have a nice day sun

Happy Journaling…

congrats!!!! I'm so happy for you!! Sounds like an interesting position and now we can hear about hardware and learn about that in the stores like we learned about how hard it is to work in shoes (honestly it sounds like a nightmare!)

I hope you have a restful vacation next week; make sure you do at least a few things fun!!!
