About a week ago, on a day off, my managers asked me to come in. They complimented me on my work ethic, enthusiasm, and said a few customers had told them how I had gone out of my way to help them out. That was really nice to hear. Then they went on & said a supervisor/management position was opening up, and recommended me for it. I found out today that I got it!

I am happy, excited, a little nervous, but all in all it's a great opportunity. I am honored that they saw that in me in the month I've been there.

I started training already today, but will be getting more of the management side of things next week. I have to learn the other associates jobs first!

Please say a prayer for me. It's going to be a great, yet challenging couple of months!

Thanks, friends.

Hope you all are having a blessed day!

xx

CONGRATS snowflake!! That's awesome!!! Seeee - we KNEW you would do great!! Good luck!!!

A lot of you know that I had another job lined up. Well my husband (and kids) are trying to talk me out of it. My husband has always been supportive of me being a stay at home mom. But I often wonder if I should be working to contribute financially. Part of me feels guilty for not working outside of the house. Ironically, a couple of these jobs really did fall right in to my lap. But to be honest with you, whenever I am out of the house for several hours I then have a hard time catching up with everything that needs to be done around here. And I get frazzled. And that's not good.
Some days I just go in to full panic mode worrying about everything. Especially now that the girls are older. They are all driving now, we have the added expense of putting three cars on the road for them. We have tuition for my two oldest. Next year my youngest will graduate high school and we will have three in college. Oh and the cost of living here is outrageous. But we get by. We always have and I know we always will. My husband works his butt off 7 days a week. I feel blessed to be able to stay home and take care of my family. And I am perfectly content.
Should I let the job go?
HMG! Sorry I don't have any advice, but I have no doubt you will make the right decision! Sending up prayers for you!! Good luck!

Have a MERRY day!
Oh, having allergy attacks is horrible in general but have it that early in the morning is even worse! :/ I hope you are fine now and enjoying Halloween! :]

Haha, poor me! You have just made me laugh. Thank you for that. ^^ Despite the fact that I still have plenty of time for my essay writing, I don't want to leave it to the last days. I prefer doing some extra work now because there are more practical projects approaching and, obviously, they will take much more time to be done. :] I hope that you are having a spooky Halloween too!

Good evening everyone! How is your trick-or-treating going? ;] The weather here was very weird today: sunny at first, then incredibly windy and rainy for several minutes, then sunny again. ^^ The most interesting part of the day was this:



Somebody from the house left this. I found it when I came back home from the campus. I thought it was very nice of somebody. :] I am getting ready to watch the movie with friends, and I wish you all a nice evening! Best wishes! xx

http://news.yahoo.com/captain-kirk-navy-destroyer-135551630.html

The commander of the U.S. Navy's sleek new guided-missile destroyer, which launched late last week in Maine, has a name to match its space-age look: Captain Kirk.

Captain James Kirk, the prospective commanding officer of USS Zumwalt, will lead the 610-foot vessel, the Navy's largest destroyer and first of three new Zumwalt-class ships "designed for littoral operations and land attack," the Navy said.
Dude. If my name and rank was Capt. James Kirk, I would be THE MAN.
