It's Been Far Too Long


It has been a year since I have touched this blog and man, I've missed it. The family? We've been chugging along, busy, and pulled in every direction. Chris got a new job and we're so happy about it. I have two jobs and full time school. The kids are getting bigger and I savor little shots like this to remind me to slow down and smell the roses.

My two jobs: substitute teaching by day and retail at World Market Cost Plus by night. I finally have a minute to sit and let my past week to soak in.

I had a customer during Black Friday weekend literally block me from taking another customer so that she could get one of our limited Downton Abbey tote bags. It was nightmarish and frustrating to say the least and it made me forget of all the nice interactions that I was lucky to have with other customers that day. The most memorable one was when I asked a woman for her ID for her wine purchase; she instantly lit up as we chatted about how horrible her day was going until that moment when I made it a good one for making her feel young and vibrant and important. She left with a glowing smile. Those are the moments I need to stop and think about instead of the negative.

So I'll leave it at that for now. Hold onto the good moments. It's Christmastime, after all.
