I worked 10 hours yesterday . And for the first time, worked with a woman, Donna . Donna was on register and I was doing guest services , greeting, selling, you know the norm . I was going to Donna for price checking and she was like go ahead and I'm like Go ahead ? she's like yeah , I'm here Honey, do it, get use to the transaction in your head . :D This happened quite a few times , as I was really selling . Donna apparantly was watching .
I was finishing with a guest , when Donna touched my arm . At this time she was standing with managers Lisa and Sherri . She said , I have met my competition and says ... You Are Good !!! Lisa & Sherri both :D and say Isn't She Though and Lisa says Very Magical !!! I think I blushed said Thank You and walked away feeling pretty darn good .
I called in this morning and spoke to Lisa . She said, Deb you are really doing great . Rest up today and we'll see you tomorrow . So, today I'm putting up my Christmas Tree . Wouldn't it be nice if my present turns out to be a job at The Disney Store after the holidays . :fingers:

Oooooh, Magic Lady I like that! :yes: Good for you Sister Tinker, but I never had a doubt that you'd be anything other than their best saleswoman! How could you not be with your huge love of all things Disney?! :yes:

Will send some pixie dust for a permanent position! :yes: :pixiedust:

I've had a bit of a setback . I swear I'm an accident waiting to happen or maybe its just that I don't pay attention . I think I'm ADD . :lol: Not offending anyone that may have a child with ADD as my son had/has it . I was in my Christmas cubbie Monday since I was off work ... I was doing some decorating . DH has weights standing on there rounded side . Now I'm talking 25 [pounders . So, I'm reaching for a box , bump the weight and you know by the title what it ended up falling on . It fell to the inside of my right foot . It hit the side of my foot hard . WoW, it hurt , I rubbed it out , applied some ice and went back to decorating . I seemed fine but got tired early . I laid on the sofa and fell asleep till DH woke me at midnight to go to bed . At 6 AM, I sat straight up in as I tried to stetch with pain radiating from the side of my foot right up my shin . I somehow managed to hobble to the bathroom and woke Jim up .
Went to the ER as I really thought it was broke . It was worse than I remember after fracturing my other . The ER was empty so I got right in , the doctor ordered Xrays , which thankfully revealed a severe contusion and soft tissue injury . Which I'm told can feel as bad as a fracture or break .
The doctor at the ER was terrific . Gave me a prescription for pain meds and instructions , got fitted with my Herman Munster shoe again and sent me hobbling on my way .
I was suppose to work yesterday . My manager was really nice, but said call me Friday as sales aren't there and I have to trim hours and cut some seasonal workers . I did not get the feeling that she meant me and said to DH that I think she would have told me right there and then . :fingers:

Sadly, I was let go after Christmas . Our store really didn't do well and they decided not to keep anyone . My manager said, when they hire, I will be called .
But ... went for a teaching interview Tuesday morning . Its a new day care right around the corner from my house . And I got the position . Just a wait time now for enrollment .

Thats what I have done most of my adult life, Jazmine . I have teaching credentials & college credits . It was when I left my last and longest teaching position, that left me with a sour taste . But with a new year, I've decided that teaching is what I Love, my passion and I'm going back .

I'm really excited about this position . The owners are young Christians and just starting this business . I feel good that I can be part of getting this new center to thrive . Since everyone I've worked with in the past within the different agencies are still the same , I will have no problems helping this young owner .
