Bittersweet

Today was crazy.  We had 5 people call in sick or didn't show up.  Another person quit because of "personal reasons" and a few showed up late or had to leave early.

It was also a bittersweet day.  We had to say goodbye to one of our co-workers as he has been accepted into the management development program for our company (learning to do what I currently do).  He will do a wonderful job.

He gave me a card today with a very nice letter.  I will share the letter with all of you tomorrow.  I forgot it in my desk drawer at work.  It made me cry!

Anyway, I am glad to be home.  Today was tiring and tomorrow will be a long day.  I am working a split shift so I can watch my niece run in the prelims for her 4x100.  They should do very well.

Have a great evening!

Ken - thank you so much for stopping by.  Please feel free to stop by and comment whenever you like.

Karen - I think I will probably go with a black or white flat.  I hate open toe shoes.  Lol....

Presents and A Wedding Dress

Today was more of a day off.  I only went in for about 3 hours.  I had to go over schedules with the dept managers, walk the back room with my grocery team, and help the front end while the leads were in a short meeting.  After all of that, I met a friend and grabbed some lunch at Red Lobster.  I had the coconut shrimp.  Yumm!

After lunch, we hit the mall to do some shopping. I had to stop by Dillards to get a nice leather rolling tote for our customer service manager, who also is a good friend of mine.  He was accepted into a management training program, so I know he will need one.  I love buying presents for people!  Probably why Christmas is my favorite time of year.

Next up was the hair salon so I could pick up my Biolage shampoo and conditioner.  They were having a sale... (2) one liter bottles for $35.  I also stopped by Lane Bryant and found a dress to wear at my brother's wedding.  It's a summer dress, but I got a cute cropped black short sleeve open sweater to go over it.  It's perfect for women with big boobs.  Lol....

I don't know what kind of shoes I will be wearing yet, but I thought the dress was cute and it looks good on.  Not sure what Stephen will be wearing, but black and white goes with anything.

Now I am home and will probably do a bit of laundry.  I don't want to take a nap but I might if it feels right.

Hope you are all having a fabulous Hump Day!

Wash My Hands

I have washed my hands of that other drama blog.  I have left a last comment and have unfollowed.  I already feel better!

I like my honest boring life!

Memorial Day

I was scheduled off today but decided to go in and work.  My store manager is off on vacation this week and she has put me in charge.  We have some "company" coming in tomorrow and I wanted  to make sure all of the departments were ready.  They have been so busy with filling all of their displays and shelves for the customers so I knew they would need some help.  I worked 8:30 to 4 pm...  not too bad for a day off!  Lol...  At least now I will be able to take some time off on Saturday to watch all of my niece's races at the State track meet.

Yesterday I posted about all of the blog drama that's been going on with a blog I used to follow.  That guy has really got some nerve.  I can't believe all of the lies he has told over the years and someone has finally caught him and put him on blast.  I knew it was bound to happen sooner or later because once you read someone's blog for so many years, you see patterns and see the lies happen.  I never really minded, except this time it went too far.  He chose to use someone's pictures, said he was in a romantic relationship with her and also stated she had a mental illness, all of which were false.  I think he's gross and disgusting.  If I were this woman, I would press charges to the fullest extent.

His blog is all lies.  Why post pictures that are not yours?  He can't even post pictures of his own food, when he clearly has the capabilities to do so.

I love the blogs I follow.  These are real people who post real pictures of what is going on in their lives.  I appreciate that.  I love to read how others are doing across this big world of ours.  I guess if I wanted fiction, I would just read a book.

Anyway, enough about that.  I am getting nervous for tomorrow, but it should go pretty well.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and was able to share it with those you love.

P.S. I changed my profile pic to a more recent one.  I am such a sucker for car selfies!

Blog Drama

Goodness.... I can't believe how much drama a blog can bring!  Lol... I am glad it's not me who started the bull crap.  I would like to say that everything you read on my blog is true.  I use real names and pictures.  Everything is mine.  I don't have to beg, borrow or steal from anyone else to get people to follow or "like" me.  I could give a rat's ass how many followers I have.

Yes... I have a foul mouth at times.  Usually when I get heated up.  Hehehehe.

Today was a crazy day at work.  The weather was okay, not like the ten straight hours of rain we got yesterday.  We should actually see some sunlight tomorrow.  I am scheduled off, but plan on going in for a couple of hours to get some work done.  Our district manager is visiting the store on Tuesday and I want to make sure everything is top-notch for that visit since my store manager is on vacation.

I was going to head to Oklahoma for the night and day off tomorrow, but decided to stay home.  I need to get some work done around the house, do a mountain of laundry (I kid not... there is a mountain in the basement) and see my niece tomorrow.  She is preparing to take the ACT again and wanted to use a practice prep test.

I hope you all had a restful Memorial weekend.
