Thankful November


This year is just flying by. October REALLY flew by.
I have a fifteen year old now.
I'm lame and hardly post anything these days, so there was no birthday post.
My Halloween pics (the few that I took) are currently on facebook. I'll try to remember to post them here later, along with a birthday post for Ashley.

For now, I wanted to take a moment and post something I'm grateful for. I really need to take some time this month and try to do this every day. I need to be more mindful of my blessings.

So, today-even though it wasn't the greatest work day ever. I want to post that I'm grateful for my new job.

Yup, I got a new job. How lame am I that I haven't even posted about that yet. I am SO done with
MGM. I was really, REALLY tired of working in the casino environment. Tired of the smoky atmosphere, selling liquor and tobacco and having to card people who didn't appreciate being carded. Tired of looking at half-dressed (or less than half-dressed) women out looking for who knows what. That scene is so far removed from where I want my life to be, so I'm EXTREMELY grateful not to have to go there every day now and be IN that world.

I got hired by RC Willey as an office associate/cashier. Their cashier's are considered office associates because it's much more involved than a typical cashier position. I don't think I knew what I was getting myself into, there's so much to learn. But, still....I'm so grateful for this opportunity. I get to see my sweet family a little bit more now than I used to. I get to be home with my kids in the evenings, help them with their homework; tuck them into bed. I get Sunday's OFF!!! Yes!! I've been wanting a job that didn't require Sundays.

So, I've been there a week. The associates I work with are super nice. I'm a little stressed about how much I don't know and how much there is to learn, but I'm just trying not to get overwhelmed. Hopefully I won't screw anything up. :)

November 1st--Thankful for my new job!
