Good news/Bad news

(It's a mixed bag really)

Good:

I accepted a position on the management team at work. I really like the company and I love the product which makes it easy to sell.

Bad:

It's full time, which means less time for knitting and less time getting together with my SnB sisters. : (

Good:

It does mean more money for buying yarn though! It's also at the store in the Santa Anita Mall, which means it's closer to Pasadena (come by and visit me!). So I can join the group on days that I have off and when I'm scheduled for the night shift. And I plan on it being temporary - just until DH and I have a baby - hopefully only a year or so away (less would be good).

Bad:

It's a little crazy to take on right at the cusp of the holiday season. The store makes half of it's annual sales in December alone! So if I seem dazed and confused and look like I'm running on fumes - just send me some yarny eye candy for rejuvenation.

Good:

I'll repeat - more money to buy yarn! Yay!

Since I don't have any knitting news, I'll leave you with a picture. The bougainvilla in my backyard loves this time of year:

I'll try to have some knitting news up soon. Have a good week everyone!

Congrats! Which store are you with? Funny, I was just at the SA mall last night - got me some brand new walking shoes :)

Madge said...

A great big congrats!

Well, maybe one of your jobs will be making the schedule (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)....

We'll keep a seat saved for you whenever you can make SnB, too, yarnsister.

Congratulations! Where at?

Fay Lynn said...

Good for you!! Yes, be the scheduler!!

Oh shoot, that is a bummer. But looking at the picture positively, it is great that you will be making more money, and it is really close to my house so I can visit you there.

That would be great if you could get lots of Wednesdays off.

I am very happy for you!

Congrats on the new position, and I hope you will find it very rewarding--professionally and financially! And this will put you close enough so we can all come in and visit--after all, your store has some really neat and addictive products (considering it's not yarn or fabric!) especially for gifts...
