Another busy week, gone

It's been a ridiculously hectic week at work thanks to several people being out on vacation and a few more people failing to show up when they were supposed to.

It's always the same few employees who end up taking up the slack--like me.

I'm tired. I'm typing this on my phone, at work, and I won't be home until at least 11pm. Just like last night. And I close again tomorrow night, too, but at least we close at 8pm on Sunday nights so I should be home by 9:00 or so. My weekends are always the same. (Not good.)

BUT! There is fresh hope! I have a job interview on Wednesday!!

Once again, it's for a bookkeeping position at a school and there's always a lot of competition for those jobs. You can't beat regular hours, several weeks off in the summer, and state benefits! I'm sure a dozen other people will be interviewing for it, too. I hope this time will be lucky for me--please send good vibes, blog friends!!

I also have three days off in a row. Monday and Tuesday were to be my scheduled two days off next week, and I told my manager I needed to take a personal day on Wednesday. She didn't ask why, but if she had, I would have told her the truth. I let her know months ago that I was searching for a new job and that I'm miserable here. She said she was sorry to hear it, but that she understood. In fact, she confided in me that she's looking to leave the company, too.

I really, really hope this interview leads to a new career for me!!

  2. Well, I wish you good luck. Not getting home before 11pm must be very tiring. It's about time you found that ideal, stress free, job.

    1. Thank you, Cro. I didn't make it home until 11:30 last night, and one night last week was after midnight. Then occasionally I have to open the store - which means going in at 7am. It's impossible to get on a healthy sleep schedule with such varying shifts.

    1. I like wearing red for luck, but I bought a new outfit for the interview and it's black and white. Maybe red undies? Lol!

  4. All the best for your job interview!
    Coming in so late from work must be such a killer to home life.

  5. Like the witches in Shakespeare's "Macbeth" I am stirring a good luck magic potion in a caudron even as I write this comment. Eye of newt and toe of frog... Stay calm and measured in your interview. Smile and don't ramble nervously. Listen to the questions... Damn! some yukky stuff from the cauldron just bubbled up and splashed on this keyboard! Good luck lass!
