I know I let my posts slide once again! Smack me upside the head with wet noodles.. LOL
But I have the greatest news to share with you. As most of you know that I have been working at Michaels as seasonal help as a cashier and whatever else they need me to do. Well this Saturday was a demo day and of course I was picked to do it. Really fun, goo-ey fun making snowmen with Snow-Tex product. Anyways, boss man walks by as I was finishing up one of the snowmen and says in a very serious tone, "I need to see you in my office after you are done with that...", no eye contact and he walks to the back of the store. My heart fell. I just knew that I was going to be written up for something stupid that I did or that I was getting the axe. So I am sweating beads as I am trying to prolong the finishing of the snowman. I get back there to the office and timidly knock on the door, boss man still has serious look on his face. And guess what?!?!
I GOT A PROMOTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How awesome is that?!?! I am no longer just a cashier, but a glorified one!! My official title is Front End Supervisor.. I will keep an eye on the registers, be over a few of the cashiers, and keep the front end of the store in order. You guys have no idea how happy this has made me. After being a stay at home mom for 12 yrs and thinking that I would never get a job becuz of the long space of time not being the workforce... my heart just soared. I wore a shit-eating grin all day long afterwards, floating on cloud 9. You laugh -- that's ok!
This weekend, starting on Thursday and ending Sunday, I will be gone to a quilter's retreat. My very first. I am told by some of the veterans that go to them alot that I will have a great time and I must say that I am looking forward to it. Time away from the house, work (which I don't really mind), laundry, cooking... ohh yea!! Just laying around , sewing... and you know that I am taking stitching with me.. laughing and having a good time with some awesome ladies in my quilt guild. We are even going to play Bunkco? (prolly spelled it wrong) ..which I have never played.
I will post after I get home with all the juicy and fun details of the time I had. Maybe even post some pictures of items that I completed... right ... you believe that?? HAHAHA!!
Take care everyone and I'll be back really soon!
