Weekend Roundup, 4th Edition

4th edition = work edition.

Seriously though, the new job has been going amazingly well! I'm loving it and everyone I've met so far! It really is nice to have coworkers and socialize with people over the age of 7! Ha!

The book and I had a talk and decided that I'm in charge.
I've already started making flash cards and using colored highlighters to separate different things. I also might have already been made fun of by several of my coworkers. Hey - it's best that they see this side of me early on, right?

I worked until 6{even though I'm supposed to work til 8, they have been letting me out early my first week} and came home, changed and headed to the mall. I had some "city cash" to spend at New York & Co. so I wanted to take advantage of it before it expired. I know you've been hearing me talk about this store a lot recently, but honestly I'm on a kick. What can I say?

I got everything you see pictured, plus a pair of dark brown linen pants and a ring neither of which I could find pictured online.

Saturday I got off early as well, about 5:30. I had so much to do at home that I decided head straight there and work on everything I haven't done since Wednesday. I got laundry done, cleared my desk off and finally bagged up all the stuff for Goodwill. Afterwards I got in bed, put on a movie and fell asleep. Bed is where Ida Claire stayed most of the night - she has always been like a 95 year old. She wakes up early, eats dinner about 4:30 and retires for the evening about 7. If she ever takes her teeth out we're in trouble!

Sunday I didn't have to be at work until 12, so I got up early to get my grocery shopping done. I headed to Walmart and it wasn't crowded at all - thank you Lord! Usually the Walmart trip on a Sunday has me questioning my sanity. After work we had a barbecue at my DM's house, so I got to meet everyone that I hadn't had a chance to meet yet and get to know everyone better! It was a lot of fun and I am grateful to have such an amazing boss! I really like working for Anonymous National Retailer because the atmosphere is so different from anywhere I've worked - especially other retail establishments. I'm used to people being uptight and stressed on a constant basis and it's exactly the opposite here. I think I've found my fit - knock on wood! Ha!

One more day of work{Monday} and then I'm off for 2 days!
