    I have an awesome interview this afternoon. I am so excited about this. It's along the same lines of Macy's but a different company (if that made any sense at all to anyone besides me ) and a completely different position. It would be full time days , not starting till middle of Sept. I would be working in an office of the store and not really have to deal with the public. BUT, i would get to work with jewelry ALL THE TIME! *happy dance*

    I'm pretty sure they pay around 30K-40K/yr ...which would be AWESOME!

    My new Mantra.


    "Lessons Learned"


    This song speaks volumes.



    Lessons Learned ~ Carrie Underwood

    There's some things that I regret,
    Some words I wish had gone unsaid,
    Some starts,
    That had some bitter endings,
    Been some bad times I've been through,
    Damage I cannot undo,
    Some things,
    I wish I could do all over again,
    But it don't really matter,
    Life gets that much harder,
    It makes you that much stronger,
    Oh, some pages turned,
    Some bridges burned,
    But there were,
    Lessons learned.

    [Chorus:]
    And every tear that had to fall from my eyes,
    Everyday I wondered how I'd get through the night,
    Every change, life has thrown me,
    I'm thankful, for every break in my heart,
    I'm grateful, for every scar,
    Some pages turned,
    Some bridges burned,
    But there were lessons learned.

    There's mistakes that I have made,
    Some chances I just threw away,
    Some roads,
    I never should've taken,
    Been some signs I didn't see,
    Hearts that I hurt needlessly,
    Some wounds,
    That I wish I could have one more chance to mend,
    But it don't make no difference,
    The past can't be rewritten,
    You get the life you're given,
    Oh, some pages turned,
    Some bridges burned,
    But there were,
    Lessons learned.

    [Chorus:]
    And every tear that had to fall from my eyes,
    Everyday I wondered how I'd get through the night,
    Every change, life has thrown me,
    I'm thankful, for every break in my heart,
    I'm grateful, for every scar,
    Some pages turned,
    Some bridges burned,
    But there were lessons learned.

    And all the things that break you,
    Are all the things that make you strong,
    You can't change the past,
    Cause it's gone,
    And you just gotta move on,
    Because it's all,
    Lessons learned.

    [Chorus:]
    And every tear that had to fall from my eyes,
    Everyday I wondered how I'd get through the night,
    Every change, life has thrown me,
    I'm thankful, for every break in my heart,
    I'm grateful, for every scar,
    Some pages turned,
    Some bridges burned,
    But there were lessons learned,
    Oh, some pages turned,
    Some bridges burned,
    But there were lessons learned,
    Lessons learned.

    I'm done. Seriously, i am.


    I went to silentgrief lastight cause i haven't checked there in awhile. I made this post.

    http://silentgrief.proboards70.com/i...1061061&page=1


    You;ll notice it was started 2 yrs ago. And before that when the site was on a different server i started a listed there too.

    Well, i go lastnight and see this.

    http://silentgrief.proboards70.com/i...ead=1184364854



    Yes, i posted. Not rashly.


    Then this morning.

    http://silentgrief.proboards70.com/i...ead=1184566927


    I again posted. Then look around and see this.

    http://silentgrief.proboards70.com/i...4182168&page=1




    And a few others posts elsewhere on site where she basicly said my listing never existed or one like the one she's going to do has NEVER been done. I'm sorry but didn't i start and do the previous ones?

    Then i just got mad and made that other post where i told her to screw it and do whatever. It would have been how hard to email me ?

    must resist urge to throttle someone......








    Ugh.

    Anyways, AF isn't here yet. I have something going on down there that i'm not quite sure about. This would be my luck.


    I have another interview on Monday with a different company. It would be comission (sp?) based sales though, so i don't know. Reminds me: I need DIRECTIONS!

    AF is still MIA. If it doesn't show by next wkend i'm going to splurge and buy a test.

    This would seriously be my luck, we just got rid of EVERYTHING baby related stuff. God, i need to buy another crib and everything else like i need a freaking hole in my head.



    I really don't know what to do about the job situation. Is it worth staying with Macy's till Dec? I'm gonna have to talk with Karen about it sometime this wk. If managers don't get paided much more then i'm getting now....forget it. As it is now, i leave there so frustrated and stressed....i hate it.

    I have to work all day tomorrow and i'm just dreading it.

    let the POAS chant begin now.....


    I'v been feeling really crappy. Peeing like a freakin race horse every hr to 2 hrs.



    Macy's is.....well, Macy's.

    I worked Sat and was told they changed alot of things in our dept.

    a) We aren't allowed to have the rolling rack in the "open" area where the TV and Sofa are supposed to go. Emphais on "supposed" to. They aren't going to BUY them until ALL the dressing rooms are re-done. Can we say over a yr?

    b) We aren't allowed to have the rolling rack in the dressing room AT ALL. Can we say more work for us? God forbid we actually HELP the customers instead of putting away clothes all night.

    c) We aren't allowed to put hangers into the plastic shopping bags. Hmmm, well maybe if the guys from the dock area came around more then every 4 to 6 hrs (especially in A VERY BUSY Dept) we wouldn't have to resort to putting hangers elsewhere.



    Then i worked today.

    a) The rolling racks have to be COMPLETELY empty at the end of the night. Again, i think we need to care more about the customers getting decent service rather then clothes being put away. Besides the ****ing fact that when they only have one person on (typical for a monday/tuesday) night and it is busy....how the hell are they supposed to get anything done?

    b) Found out that they have a "cap" on how much everyone can make. It's less then $11/hr. They don't do raises, they do bonuses .





    I asked a few people about switching dept's. Karen is still on vacation. Turns out, to work the fine jewelry (not just fashion, which i've been doing) they ONLY promote from within, you have to pass a CORI and security check. Not alot of people are lining up to switch to this dept because you are basiclly locked in a cage all day.

    Nothing on AF front. I'll be testing sometime Thurs or Fri if nothing happens by then.





    Job Front:

    Talked to Karen lastnight. She took it pretty good. Only problem? Every dept has to downsize (ie: reduce hours) because we are out of the "seasonal" crap again. So now, the dept i'm in normally is dropping people because they are only allowed to have 2 part-time night people. Since *R* and I have been there the longest we obvisously get those positions. I'm waiting for a call back from *A* about weather or not jewelry does have any openings. Which, according to at least 5 or 6 people they need people desperately and have been pulling people from different dept's (that already have the clearance and everything else) to work it.

    I just don't want to get screwed on this.




    And if by chance i get a BFP, i would have to quit or reduce my hours in a few months anyways. I'd rather have the non-stress of jewelry to the MAJOR stress of dealing with teeny-boppers and a dressing room that is ALWAYS trashed.

    Ya know:

    Thinking about it more and more as the day goes on. If i don't get a bfp i;m going to push forward to do the surrogacy thing. The office called this afternoon and left a message. I'm gonna call tomorrow and have them re-email they orginally sent me.

    If i do get a bfp.....then it will be a completely different story. Weird thing, before dinner i was standing leaning against the counter and my belly was sticking out....DH went and rubbed it like it was a preggo belly.

    Have to update now.


    Talked to *A* this morning. I have a meeting with the General Manager of the Store tomorrow morning! I found out from one of the floor managers that i will get a pay raise moving to Fine Jewelry. I don't know how much. I'll find all that out tomorow.

    This is so meant to be. I just know it.
