If my readers are anything like me (and that is to assume that I have "readers"), than you've probably been wondering where I am. Where are the new posts? Where are the pictures? Well, I was out of town for a bit, but after that there really is no excuse! I could say that I am extremely busy at work, or that my kids are taking up all my time, etc...etc..... But we all know those aren't true!
Truth be told, I have lots of ideas roaming around my head - great and witty topics to post on. I think I just haven't had the nerve to tackle them yet. Something that has consumed me since October has been my job(s). I currently work 2 jobs - one at a local college, and the other at J. Crew. I was a Personal Shopper for the Crew, but recently stepped back down to a regular sales position. This was a good decision, and I immediately knew it by the peace I felt. I loved selling clothes, but I also felt a bit like the "girl at the corner in the red dress" - if you know what I mean. I was fine selling to people who were already in the store, but I had a really hard time getting people into the store who don't normally shop there - and that was my role. I was constantly worried that I was not doing what I needed to do in that position (and I wasn't!), all the while trying to do another part time job. A friend, and manager, told me that he would rather me be happy in a lesser role than unhappy in the one I was in. Wise words - so bear with me while I take the pay decrease and hand in my fancy business cards!
