Surprise! Surprise!

I'm finally starting to feel 'normal' and life is getting back to a regular routine. 
Friday I went to my favorite scrapbooking store, Archivers, which is closing it's doors. 
Sad, sad news for many people.
I had signed up for a class for my new toy, my Silhouette Cameo. I am anxious to have time to use it for my scrapbook pages, there are so many things you can do with it!

Yesterday I got into my 'saturday afternoon' routine.....laundry and straightening up my scrapbooking area in the basement. I put the final touches on my Louisville scrapbook and got together some items for a scrapbook for an upcoming trip.
Our grandson came over and spent the night.

Today we went to church, did a little bit of homework, and he watched a lot of TV.
Mom picked him up just after supper.
The dishes were done so I decided to settle down in front of the TV and try to write a post....after I read my email. 
There's one with FYI in the subject line from my co-worker. 
OMG she's quitting in one month!
I'm leaving in 3 months......
looks to me like I'll be training 2 new people instead of one. We went through 2 people before Lisa was hired. Before I was hired 2 other women were hired  for my job of accounts receivable.
Wish me luck!!!

The 2 owners don't realize how much there is to learn, there are a lot of variables on my side of the job and mind reading is sometimes required too.
I can't let it worry me, I gave my notice about 6 months ago and reminded them again last week.
I guess I am not totally surprised that Lisa found a different job, she has a 2nd part time job, and I don't think she was totally happy working part time.

The next couple of months could be very interesting.......stay tuned!


  1. Sounds like you are going to have a big job on your hands, Linda. I hope the transition goes smoothly and doesn't stress you out too much. Sounds like you had a good day!!! xoDiana

  2. Reading this brought back so many memories of my working days. Training someone new..hoping I didn't miss anything. Yep...I admit I don't miss those days at all. I really thought I would but I don't. To wake up in the morning and know I don't HAVE to be anywhere or DO anything I don't want to do. It's...wonderful! :)

  3. Oh, I thought they went through more than two people before you! I don't know how many before Lisa. Good luck and take it all one day at a time.

  4. That should make the time go even faster! I hope they find someone for you to train soon. Might they go with one full time person?
