Hi everyone, and Happy 4th of July to you all! Today is a brand new challenge on the Squigglefly blog, and it's Heather's first time up as design team leader! Swing by and see what the Headliners have done with her challenge which is "The Good Ole' Summertime!" I plan on making a card for that challenge today!
Well, I have a bit of news to share with you today concerning my new job. Friday was a day from Hell. I didn't leave work until 6:30 and I still had a pile of stuff on my desk to do. Earlier in the day I actually walked back to my boss's office to tell him that I was going to make Friday my last day, but when I got to his office he had some people in there and the door was closed so I walked back to my office. Later he came in to my office for something and I told him that I just didn't think I was going to make it. He was really nice and sat down and talked to me telling me I was doing a phenomenal job and he asked me to just give it a couple more weeks. Then later I was talking to a couple of other ladies who have been working there a month longer than I have and they were both complaining about the extra hours they are working. That pretty much told me that a couple of more weeks wasn't going to make a difference. The simple fact is there is too much work for one person to do. Plus, I had in the back of my mind that the people in Tyler, Texas had told me that it would be a year before I got help. I just couldn't fathom doing that every day for a year.
When I finally left for home I had a lump in my throat and there were tears running down my face before I reached my driveway. When I got inside I just broke down. I know that if I feel that badly after only working at a place for a week, that it isn't for me. I talked about it with my husband and spent a lot of the night and the next day thinking about what I wanted to do, and I finally made the decision to quit. It is better to leave now before they invest any more time in me and maybe they can still contact the other people they interviewed for the position. so, now I'm back job hunting again - which isn't fun by any means, but I do feel good about my decision.
So yesterday, I played a bit making a couple of cards and this is one of them.

I used the Oh No, She Didn't! image from Squigglefly and colored with Copic markers. I cut the letters out with my Cricut and then glittered them with some emerald green glitter. That's what I was feeling like all of my friends are saying about me when they hear I quit my job! LOL!
Tonight we're going to watch the fireworks display put on by the city and we're eating chili dogs for dinner! I hope you have a wonderful celebration today no matter what you do. Thanks for looking - and listening!
