My new job



A little background for those of you that don't know I left my job about 5 months ago as a victims advocate at a domestic violence shelter due to burn out and some stress related medical issues. (sorry for the long sentence). Well I put in for a part time office manager/event planner for a formal wear boutique and got the job I am so excited it is so different from anything I have ever done.

So I awarded myself with a little trip to the Dollar Tree!

Have a great day! Who all is going to see Twilight?

Congrats Carrie! That sounds like an awesome job! (And fun, too!)

I want to see Twilight soo bad. We'll probably wait and go next week. Have you finished all of the books? I'm on the third.

Meeeee!!! I am going to see Twilight! I have a confession to make though. I have not read the book. I have not had time. I hope I don't regret this.

Wow girl..you really know how to change it up..a victim advocate to formal wear! I was special ed for severe behavior and I don't know how teachers do that for the long run!
