Hello friends, how are things in your little corner of the world?
It was so nice having last weekend off and spending most of it with all of you. If I didn't pop in to visit, I promise to catch up with you on my next blog jog around blog town. I didn't do much of anything else last weekend other than making a nice big pot of homemade soup and some delicious cheddar biscuits to go with it. It was such a nice relaxing weekend for a change.
As of Monday it was back to a hectic schedule here. My husband started the orientation and training for his new job, and I was back to my two jobs.
Both of my jobs are in retail, one in management. There's nothing thrilling to tell about either job, but the management position is where I was hired as a part time assistant manager and then got bamboozled into standing in as a full time store manager and working all the crazy hours these past months. I have enjoyed some aspects, but being on my feet 60 hours a week, climbing up and down ladders, unloading thousand piece plus trucks, and just busting my buns off usually seven days a week has been beyond exhausting. It's way more than I bargained for.
Today I called to speak with our district manager about the possibility of taking a leave for a few weeks. I've been very uncomfortable working with the general public with this Omicron variant spiking higher and higher by the day in our area. What I got was a very unprofessional lecture. Apparently I'm being ridiculous (which was so annoyingly said with a chuckle), I'm living my life in fear, it's all a hoax, media hype and so on. *Insert eye rolls and lots of HBO words here*
Oh and just for the record, the reason the store didn't have a manager to begin with is because she died from Covid last year.
After that conversation, I'm strongly leaning towards resigning. At this point, I'm pretty much just debating whether I should play nice and give a two week notice like I normally would, or if I should just walk in there, dramatically slam down my letter of resignation on the desk and walk right back out the door - which sounds so much more satisfying to me right now.
On a more pleasant note, I have the whole weekend off again. I'm really looking forward to preparing some nice meals, spending some time outdoors enjoying this gorgeous 70s weather we're having, and of course I'll be spending lots of time here catching up with all of you. :)
