26 Days!

I have 26 days left of work.

TWENTY-SIX days! I'm 95% excited and 5% nervous. I think Suz said it best...

"Do not be anxious about anything instead with prayer and petition submit your requests to God." He will provide a way for you!

She is so right and that is what I am doing!

After this month no more grumpy women frazzled from too much shopping. No strangers snapping at me because THEY lost their receipt and I cannot refund them cash. No more lazy shoppers that refuse to pay shipping but still want to shop online and call the store and have ME run around and get their stuff. All of these things are things that happen to us on a daily basis! The last one irritates me the most! I've stopped answering the phone until we're officially open because of it. They will suck up all your time and then you're behind on opening duties. I hate being behind.

I finished the substitute teaching authorization class on Saturday and it wasn't bad at all! The weather took a nasty turn for the worse and since people from all over the state were in Des Moines for this class, the instructor let us out early. It was nice, gave me time to grab some dinner before heading in to work to close the store.

And, speaking of studying. I pulled my first all-nighter since starting grad school last night. Of cooooouuuurse I waited till the last minute to get two big projects done until last night. They were due at 9am this morning and I figured I could get it all done after work yesterday in a couple hours. Ummmm, no.

I got home around 8pm and got right to work. Then my sister came home... then the dogs needed out.... then I talked to my sister for awhile.... then I messed around on Facebook.... you get the picture. By 1:30 am I was 3/4th the way done and I was crashing fast. So I figured I would take a little nap and then get up and finish in the morning. That's what I ended up doing and it worked out perfectly. I have only had a little over 3 hours of sleep and so far I feel fine but I know I'm going to crash later!

Are you a procrastinator or do you get things done right away?

I'd totally be counting down the days until my last day if I was you, too! Yikes, can't imagine putting up w/ snobby/cranky women like you do!

I tend to get things done ahead of time for the most part. I do not work well under pressure, though! But I know some people do their best work under pressure!

You gotta love retail!

I pulled an all nighter once in college. The only reason was because we had a philosophy final the next day and we had NO idea what we were doing.

I'm a mixture...I procrastinate but not until the very last minute. I usually give myself a few days. LOL

I'm ready for this semester to be done with! One more final for me (on Thursday)!

Ha ha! It depends on what it is, but I can definitely be a procrastinator at times!

I try to get things done because I hate HATE having them hanging over me but sometimes I wait if it's something I don't really want to do!
