TGIF & Winner #3!

I know I haven’t worked a full week this week but it has been a while since I’ve been a working girl and I gotta tell y’all, I am one tired chickie this evening.  My feet ache and I am just tired all over but hey, I am NOT complaining in the least…it is very much a good kind of tired.

I have really surprised myself (sorta but not really, if you know what I mean)…by being positive and feeling certain that I AM on the right track with my attitude and health and just everything, I didn’t have one single panic attack or even a hint of anxiety at all this week.  If you know me at all, this is monumental.  But I knew I wouldn’t…and even if I had, I knew I could handle it and would be fine.

So much is going well, as it should.  Big blood draw on Monday to see about my liver function (which is going to be GREAT, I just feel it) and check my diabetes (well under control, I am positive), etc. and a doctors appointment on Friday to discuss the results, all good I am certain.

Robin asked what my job entails.  I am the District Merchandiser for O’Reilly Auto Parts, District 111, Region 18.  Ha!  Yea, that’s the official title….what I do is go to each store in our district and do their general merchandising which means: make sure product is on the sales floor and not sitting in the stockroom, do pre-inventory preparation, monthly counts, make sure that each stockroom is in good order, and take part in every district inventory.  Since there are nine stores in our district, by the time I’ve done all nine, it will be time to head back to the first one and start over again.

I’ve spent a lifetime dealing with the public as a Paramedic for 10 year and then as a Paralegal for 12 years, so this is ideal for me because I don’t have to deal with the public at all.  I just go in and can seclude myself in my stock and all that I need to do, no dealing with the public at all.  I’m even wanting an iPod so I can listen to music or books as I work.  How cool is that?  WOOT!

Anyway, I am exhausted and really want to dive into my art journal for a while before my eyes can no longer stay open sooooooo, here’s today’s pick….


Comment #20 was from Mary (aka Shopgirl):

YAY, Mary!!!  Congratulations!  A goodie will be on it’s way to you very soon.

So, there you have it, everyone…another winner in my 29 Days of Giving.  I am going to try to get out my first five winners packages on Monday and do a mailing of my giveaways at least twice a week…just wanted everyone to know.

Now, time for me to journal a while and fall into a deep slumber.  Maybe I will even manage to scan some of my art journaling and other art I’m working on over the weekend.

I hope that each of you has a wonderful Friday and a great weekend.

Peace & Love,
