Hello Everyone (anyone!). Wow, it's just been a great week thus far and it's on Thursday! Happy Valentines Day btw.
First off I scored a new job! I'll now be an Engineering Assistant for Century Link and it's totally exciting! I got this call on Tuesday and today is when I make the big announcement to the staff girls at work. I did tell two of the 6 owners here and that was A LOT tougher than I thought! I'm actually way more sad about it than I thought I would be. They basically begged me to stay, something I've never seen them do with anyone else who has left the company in the 3 years I've been here. There are many things I will miss but to move forward in life I feel I must make this change. I am at the limit as to what I can be at Coldwell and Century Link has no ceiling as to what I can become so I'm excited to start this new chapter in my life. Coldwell has really been great but over the last year attitudes and respect have declined and there just isn't much anyone can do about that.
On Tuesday when I got that call my mom text me and said "Congratulations! Let's go out to eat to celebrate!" For those of you who don't know, she owns a tanning salon in town about 5 minutes from where I work so I eat lunch over there. Anyway, as much as I wanted to say YES YES YES I actually declined and said "I can't use food as a reward". This is huge folks, HUGE for me. Food addicts love to use food as a reward and this is a major step. I can't say this will happen all the time but the fact that I was able to man up and realize what I need to fix is a big step in the right direction.
Thirdly, Tax Season! I dread tax season lately because I own my own small business so I usually have to pay. Plus my husband was an "Independent Contractor" for most of this year so he got a 1099 i.e. we'll get screwed. Well, at the end of each month when I do the budget and calculate our spending etc I pull 25% of what we each made and put it into a "tax account" (a savings account), welllll, our CPA got back to me yesterday and we really only have to pay about 1/4 of what is in the account! So yay, Happy tax day!!!Even though we are having to pay we will still have a large sum left over that we can buy a few necessities and then put the rest into savings.
And lastly, I've ordered an Event Kit from Rockeresque! I am going to get a booth for the Hurricane Peach Days (In September) and be able to offer some of their great products to the gals of H-Town! In the mean time I'll probably also hit up my pals and see if they are interested. This will be a great way for gals to inexpensively see what colors they want and then when they decide they will (still inexpensively) get on the website and place an order. I'm pretty excited about this. If you aren't friends with me on Facebook I usually share Rockeresque's posts and then post some of my own looks of the day. Here is today's V-Day look. My signature purple look :)
Ok anyone still reading. Two more days until weigh day and I feel confidant that I'll see a loss! See you on Saturday!
