Well I did it. I survived my first week as a manager in training. This first week was spent sharpening my skills and making sure I am doing things by the book. I definitely learned a few things I didn't know and also have some knowledge to bring back to my unit when I go back. It has definitely been tough getting used to long hours every day but the paycheck will make Christmas worry free.
I am excited that I have had the chance to be at one of our most successful stores and see how it runs so smooth. There are definitely things I want to implement when I get back. I miss my crew but I am so glad that I am able to move forward in my career.
My parents helped me set up a budget so I can start getting my finances in better control. I am hoping to have a car by Christmas if not sooner. For once I feel like I can breathe and things are getting more manageable.
The future is still very much up in the air. R's father had a heart attack and is in the hospital. So far that is all I have heard. R still hasn't left for California so I am not sure if that is still in play or not. I am getting the paperwork drafted for my divorce to be finalized and to final bring that chapter to a full close. I sent Joey the last of the pictures I had and I deleted them from my albums.
I've been sick the last few days and I still don't know what is causing it. I have my suspicions but nothing is for sure yet. Only time will tell if I'm right.
Now that Ally is dead asleep it is time for a hot bath before heading to bed myself.
Brightest Blessings Lovelies.
