Work and changes
While I miss the little guy I used to babysit for, I am looking forward to starting my new job on Monday. It is temporary while the admin is on maternity leave and I am ok with that. After being at a retail clothing job with a manager who is controlling, I am thrilled about it. I actually gave my 2 week notice there and my last day is October 2. I made it a month working there. I have worked in a clothing store and a video store before and have worked in the corporate office of a major drugstore chain over the past 20 years or so. I am full aware of how retail works and how business works. Heck I have a part time candle business that I am working on making full time and am starting my own website. So for a manager to tell me I don't know anything about profitability is a crock. My decision was made based on what is best for me. Plus her controlling, and know it all attitude helped in the decision.
My boyfriend got a call about a job in Iowa. Mind you we live in the suburbs of Chicago. While I am going through every emotion in the book, deep down I know he needs to take it since construction work is slow here. He will be 4 hours away and when I get the chance I will drive to him. It is a 4 hour drive so I am glad that I can drive it and I have a friend down in the area where he will be that I recently reconnected with. We have been together for 11 years and this is just one of things that we need to go through as it is life. People do it all the time. We can too. Our love will bring us through it.
