Job Love

I know, I know, I haven't been Blogging! And you know how much I love Blogging, so you also must know than that I must have a good reason. Right? And if you think my Blog has been neglected, you should see my house and my laundry pile! Ugh!

Well it started with a cold (or so I thought) I don't get sick very often, so I just kept saying "oh, it's just a cold, it will get better" but, I realized I was saying that for over 3 weeks. Some cold. So, I finally went to the Doctor who sent me straight from his office for a chest x-ray thinking that I had Pneumonia. Luckily it wasn't pneumonia, but some other type of respiratory infection. So, he started me on some powerful antibiotics. I'm still couching some, but am definitely getting better.

Plus in the middle of dealing with not feeling well at all, I started my new job. It's been a whirlwind! I'm really loving the job! My second day of work I already had my own key to the shop and was left there alone running the store. Wow! My manager who hired me told me when she did that she had me in mind for becoming her assistant manager. That's cool with me! But after I've been working there for just 5 day's, she left to get married and go on her honeymoon. Can you believe the audacity of some people?! ; ) And left me in charge! She's either really trusting or really stupid. I'll let you know how it turns out! There are three other part time girls working there who luckily know what they're doing. Of course I am the oldest one in the whole store! So, pray you can still teach an old dog new tricks!

I really like the store and the clothes, and the people. And I'm learning the job. Last night I closed for the first time alone and of course nothing could go right, the printer stopped printing receipts, it was a mess. But thankfully I finally got it all working with some IT help. so, hopefully from here on out it's smooth sailing. I'm working pretty much everyday but Sunday this week and next week with my manager gone. After that things should slow back down to where I can be a wife, mom, friend and blogger once again! Yeah!

And Kyle is loving his job with the Oakland A's too. He came home the other day with a bat Matt Holliday broke. He was very excited about that. And he showed me a man in Sports Illustrated who he said "I talk to him everyday!" It was Jason Giambi. Every teenage boys dream job I guess! He's having fun.

So, thank you all so much for your prayers for our new jobs. In this economy and job market it truly is a gift from God to find a good job, and one that you actually love! And if God can do it for us, He can, and will, do it for you!

Hi Star. Great photo of you in the store. I'm so happy for you. Don't worry about the house & laundry -- y'all will adjust and settle into a routine.

Glad you're feeling better, too.

This is a very entertaining piece of read! :) Ha ha ha! A bit funny-like, too! But not the first part! No...I am so sorry to hear about your respiratory infections! But good for you that you say you don't get sick a lot! :) Over here, it is actually hard to not catch those kinds of infections! There is just too much goin' on in the air!

I have been wondering where you have been! Have you read any of my poems lately? I've written quite a few! :)

You know have to go to Healthy Options or your local Health store and get yourself (and your family) some echinacea capsules! Echinacea does complete wonders for when you are coming down with something! There's a syrup form for younger kids, too! :)
