Friday Confessions

**I apologize for not informing ya'll but I'm not sure how much attention I wanted to give this transition.  It's very bittersweet, but I resigned from my job this week.  On Monday I accepted a new position as an Assistant Buyer of Fine Jewelry at JCPenney.  While I'm very excited and nervous for the new challenges ahead of me, I am so sad to leave a team of people I love so much.  I have faith I'm making the right decision but that doesn't necessarily make it any easier.
**I just realized this is my last Friday at Tuesday Morning.  I'll be out next Friday for my back injections and the week after that we're all off for Thanksgiving.  I guess it's a perk that our system is closing down at 3 and we're going to happy hour!  Best last Friday ever.
**For whatever reason, a lot of people who have resigned here haven't always told people where they're going.  I couldn't (and still can't) figure this out for the life of me.  Since I was nervous there was an obvious reason I was just missing I started googling "reasons not to say...".  The FIRST thing that popped up was "reasons not to say YOLO."  Seriously?!?  I choked on my water and told everyone I know who would appreciate it. 
**I don't know if it's the time change or the pending weather change but I have been SO tired this week.  I'm going to blame it on the time change and pray I'm not becoming an old person who soon has to make dinner reservations at 5:30 because I can't stay up past 9:00.
**I try very hard not to judge people.  Yesterday, I could help it.  There was a man in the waiting room at the pain management dr's office who you could tell was just a bit "off."  I felt bad for him until he sat next to me and physically tried to turn my head to look at the stitches in his knee after I POLITELY refused.  The staff made him wait in the hall.  I wanted to ask for a free appointment but I had a feeling that wouldn't fly.
**I can't take Alleve for the next week due to my back injections and that almost scares me more than the injections themselves.  The doctor said I could take Tylenol but for me, that's a useless drug.  I'm trying to focus on the fact he said I could drink as much wine as I want.  I asked for a prescription so I could bring some to work and he actually laughed.  No one laughs at my jokes!  I think I may love him. 
I hope ya'll have a fabulous weekend!  I have a co-workers wedding tomorrow and I'm hoping the fact that I'll be wearing heels won't kill me.  I'm sorry but flats and a cocktail-ish dress isn't something I'll ever do, I don't care how much pain I'm in!  


  1. congrats on the new job!! and I hope your back feelsbetter...a little?

  2. A man grabbed your head and tried to turn it?? So strange!! I'd be just a little judgmental too. Last week was really long and exhausting for me too!! Next week is short so it has to be better.

  3. Nikki, thank you!! It's getting there :o) I hope I'll get permanent relief on Friday with these joint injections!
    Cece-YES!! I wanted to go home and wash my hair but I had a meeting at work. Now I know to stand alone in the corner at this doctor's office!
