handholding

(no subject)

Moving from one thing to another, that's what it's about. Just keep moving, living each day as it comes. Things are stable, mom's taking it all like a champ, much better than I would've imagined. But with all this talk in politics and finances, it's only a matter of time before that strength might start to waver. I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt.

I'm back to work and once again struggling to leave the store without buying anything :) I've done well so far. 2 days back and I've only bought a candy snack. There are 2 new girls that I had the chance to finally work with, both of which I can't see any potential just yet. But I give them at least another 2 weeks before I really judge them. It's coming up on a really, really busy season, what with Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. At Wolf, nothing was bigger than Christmas. But at JoAnn's, Halloween is one of their busiest holidays, almost more than X-Mas. And Thanksgiving is equally busy. It's a tough time to have 2 new girls and have lost a few really valuable people. At least I'll be on the schedule more, finally get to paying those TX hospital bills :/

My first sewing project: make a purse. Second project: make my winter coat. Third: make my Crystal Ball costume (???)
