Ah, a better day... sort of

So this morning... oh alright fine. This afternoon, the manager from the Chandler store called me. She was told what happened the other day when I quit and she said that she completely understood why I left, and that she would have done the same thing if she had been in my shoes, and then she seriously made my whole week.

She told me that she felt that I was a very valuable asset to the store, and that she felt that my creativity and integrity were too good to simply throw away, and that if the Director of Operations said it was okay, she would gladly hire me to work at her store in a heartbeat, regardless of what had transpired with Kat.

I cried, it really meant that much to me.

I know that the odds of me getting to go back to be in her store are slim, but to know that she really felt that way meant the world to me.

Then I went to take the chair that I had altered to another store in town. The owner loved it! There are so many cute chairs there now. I am glad to be in such good company! I asked her about open lab, and she said sure, come on in. She asked why I wasn't going to my store and I told her that I quit, without going into too much detail outside that the corporate "thing" wasn't for me, which she totally agreed with. She asked me if she could call me to fill in a shift if needed or to teach some classes sometime, and I told her sure. How cool is that?

Less than one week to our big move! I can't wait! Of course, you can't tell we are moving in less than a week because NOTHING is packed yet! ARGH! My friend is coming by with a roll of large green plastic wrap to wrap the armoire and other items with drawers closed, that will help. I have to weed out my socks and underwear drawers too, ugh.

Tonight I am also working on my "We've Moved!" cards. I am only making ten of them, I think that will be enough. I have to move all the utilities too. I am starting a "To Do" list. So far - ZERO items accomplished. I am such a slacker. I did ask my husband to pick up some change of address cards from the post office though. That's something, right?

See, the plan was to start packing way ahead of time all the stuff we don't use, that way when moving day came it would be a breeze. Of course, it's not looking like it's gonna happen that way. Oh well. Better go and get to work!

Oh my goodness, I feel for ya! It's almost like we are living parallel lives, only you are two weeks ahead of me! I'm quitting my job this Friday. For me, I just can't justify working for people whom I can't and don't respect. I'm also moving in 3 weeks and I have packed how much? -- 2 boxes. To top it off, I'll be out of town for 2 of the remaining 3 weeks. Sigh... I'm send you positive packing vibes! Good luck with you move. :-)
