The Body Killer-My New Job!
Oh my God! My body aches in places I didn’t even know I had! I haven’t worked this hard in years and I am really feeling it. However, it’s a good hurt when that paycheck comes in. It feels good to have a purpose again and the challenge of cleaning up a mess has been fun.
We’ve made great strides already. Everyone in the store is happy and likes me as a boss. One thing I learned in management training years ago is that people want to be told what to do and then be patted on the back for doing a good job when they are finished. It’s a very true statement. These folks were hungry for a boss to lead them and I have stepped in and taken over. I am a cheerleader type of boss. I ASK people to do things and then I make it a point to go back and see what they’ve done and let them know they did a good job. I’m also a trainer at heart so I’ve been able to teach them all a lot of stuff already. It’s really been fun in that respect.
On another note, the girls went back to their father. I am childless again. It’s a long drawn out story but when it was all said and done, they wanted their father. They missed him and they had started acting out a lot because of it. I am going to see the attorney this morning to get out of the custody thing so that I am no longer responsible for them. I had them for almost a year and nothing would really make them happy because all they really wanted all along was to be back with him. I just hope he does what he is supposed to do with them now.
I can’t stay long here because I’ve got to get to the attorney’s office and I have a long day at work. I thank you all for the well wishes and I miss getting to talk to you guys all the time, but I am definitely enjoying working. I guess you can’t have it all! Hopefully soon I will be able to handle working and blogging! lol
