I'm Back :)

It has been a long time since I last blogged!  SOOO much has happened so I won't be able to fill you in about everything right now but here it goes...  So, I quit my job.  Stupid right??  I was so beyond drained and stressed over that stupid sales job. Although I did well (I was consistantly in the top 10 in the call center), I HATED it!  Sales is so NOT ME, and it took so much out of me to constantly have to pretend to be someone I'm not.  It was the week after everything with Grabby and the rest of my family, and I just couldn't take it anymore.  I just called in and told them that I had to resign...  Financially this decision was idiotic. Seriously. But emotionally I couldn't do it anymore.

Luckily, I found another job and I start next week :)  I am very lucky that it didn't take me long at all to get something lined up!  I am going to be working for a company called HTI.  It is basically a staffing firm for local industrial companies.  The bad news is, it is in Anderson, so I will have to drive about 35 mins both ways (a lot different from 3 mins to Charter..), but the good news is, NO MORE SALES.  Instead I will be dealing more with the HR side of things: conducting preliminary interviews, assigning clients to certain companies, entering data, dealing with paperwork, verifying applicants' information - wayyyyyy more up my alley! :)  I am excited but NERVOUS!  I hate being the new girl and of course, don't really know what all to expect. 

So, the above was typed last night - just not posted...THIS is today.................

I had my first experience waking up SUPER early (6am!) this morning.  I had to go to Anderson to fill out paperwork, take a drug test, ect.. Home free, right?? No! I had a little snag with my drug test :( My prescription for Ativan - it's actually the generic brand so Clonazopam (sp?), showed up on my test! Ugh. I didn't even think about it being a problem, I guess because it's never showed up before on my other tests for previous jobs.... SO, basically they had to send it in to the lab for further testing.  She said it could come back that it's not enough to be positive OR if it is positive, I have to have my prescription faxed in to straighten it out..So, either way, it should work out fine, but it still has me nervous because I'm worried my new employers will be worried that I'm some kind of druggie or second-guess their decision to hire me.... Plus, I won't be able to start on Monday, like I was supposed to because it takes at least 3 to 4 days for the results to come back! UGHHHHHHH!! Why is it such an ordeal to get hired?? I hope everything works out fine and HTI doesn't change their mind because of this (innocent) issue... She told me not to worry - that this happens all the time but I can't help but worry.  I'm a worrier.

Anyway, good news: I have a longer weekend :).. bad news: that's another week without a paycheck :(

In wedding planning news, I was SUPPOSED to have a consultation with the florist yesterday at 11 in Inman (I know. Random)  My mom drove from Columbia, and I, obviously was coming from Greenville.  I called my mom on the way and she told me she was running about 10 mins behind.  So, when I got off the phone with her, I called the florist to tell them that we were on our way for our appointment, but we wouldn't be there until 10 or 15 after.  They didn't answer so I left a message.  So, when I'm pulling in to Inman, Mill Street Florist calls me.  She informs me that Karen, the one who does consultations, had to go out of town and that she was supposed to have left me a voicemail to tell me that she would have to reschedule.  Well I didn't get a voicemail (even after I re-checked later) and there we were in Inman for no reason!  I called my mom to tell her and we ended up still going to the shop to look around and then turned around and went BACK to Greenville for lunch.. Annoying.  Maybe this is a sign that we need to be looking at a different place to do our flowers......

So, basically, nothing's really going according to plan these days..lol.  Oh well.  After the drug fiasco today I went with Shelly to meet Melissa for lunch and then to meet her PRECIOUS twin girls, Hayden Grace (my new buddy) and Tatum.  They are both sooooo adorable :)

On Saturday I'm throwing Jessica and Gary a couples baby shower.  In honor of her pregnancy cravings, we're doing a Pickles and Ice Cream theme.  Linsey had seen the idea online and I thought it was cute, especially since Jess LOVES these fried pickles from Quaker Steak that I'm going to order.  In addition to the fried pickles, we'll have an ice cream sundae bar, and I got some ice cream cone and pickle cookie cutters to make some cute cookies, and some other stuff.. 

I'm worried about how many couples will actually show up though... : /  It seems like the date didn't work out as well as we hoped it would, and a lot of the people that we invited can't come.. We'll still have fun though! Oh, and our koozies just came in! (Finally)

More later.
