I got the Job!!!

I phoned them, today, about the job - I was supposed to hear from them yesterday, either way. Before I left for work, I had not heard anything. I didn't know what to think. I told myself not to stress about it, and I tried not to, but I certainly was not my usual self. And, it was shocking slow at work!!! Nobody could believe how empty the store was!!! NOTE TO ANYONE WHO SHOPS COSTCO: Go on Family Day!!! Especially after 5 o'clock!! We figure most people thought we would be closed, it was not a normal busy day - and when they realized we were open, that we would have Sunday/holiday hours. Nope. Open our normal store hours. And with door counts of 27, then 17 people around the 6- 7 hours, you know how slow it was!!! So, we got out of there early, and with everything done, and done well!!!

So, today, I got up woundering if somehow I had missed thier call. Sometimes I don't get messages..... but I was not sure. And then I was not sure if I should call - but I have to leave here by 10:30 today to get to work on time and so, I phoned them. And, she was busy, but glad I called and said she was going to phone me later - and that if I was still interested, they would like to hire me. And when I said yes, I was still interested, she said she would let me know the schedual later. So, we hung up and I have a new job. In town. Walking distance. I am not sure exactly how I am feeling!! I have made friends at Costco, people that I enjoy being around, and I am going to miss them. I am not going to miss the job. And I am not going to miss the crazy hours - never knowing week to week what hours I am being booked for. But I am so grateful for them hiring me when they did - they helped me through a tight time, and for that, I so happy to have been a Costco employee. I wounder what this job is going to be like???

Here is what I am up to right now - although, I gave myself a talking to last night, after I had unsewn most of these pieces!! GET TO WORK ON THE GUILD CHALLANGE!!!! So, that is what I will be doing this week instead of this one:
This is another one of Carols challenges!! From Years ago!!! It is a challenge to make a quilt out of the same size rectangle - the whole quilt out of this one shape and the due date is long gone past!!! But, I was going to do it!! And I did - then didn't like what I was creating, so yesterday, I pulled this mess out of the pile I have and layed them out on the design wall, and then spent the rest of the time in my room unsewing them.........
So, now that I am back to basic pieces, I really don't want to have to unsew anymore, I wil figure out what I am going to do with what I have already created. I am working to get my projects FINISHED!!!! And I am tired of all bits and pieces I have. Once I have some $$ together, I will shock my quilter with a huge pile of things she can do when she can, no rush!!! And I will be so happy to have my beautiful projects DONE!!!!
Okay, I have to go get myself ready for work now!!! Oh happy day!!!!!!!!! ((hugs))))
