Ya'll know I am now working as a retail merchandiser, right? I am purposely not saying for what retail chain because I don't want my blog searchable by that. Paranoid, who? But I think I did tell you I work in my neighborhood grocery store. When I was hired I was told that eventually I would have another store but for the foreseeable future I would just be working at the one. Which was fine with me, I figured it would make the adjustment of going back to work easier.

By now I know the job, even though I'm still kinda slow. Hey I've only been working for 6 weeks during the BUSIEST time of year. But I feel like I've got my schedule worked out and things are falling into a routine. So, guess what? Tomorrow I am headed out with my boss to meet the managers at my new store. My confession? I am just getting used to going to work a couple hours a day two days a week. I am not sure I'm ready for this, although my boss assures me I am.

Anything you are feeling insecure about lately you'd like to share. Please don't let me be the only nervous Nelly around!


You will do fine. You can handle it. Although, it will cut into you blog time which I am not a fan of!
I am very uneasy as to where we will be in one year. Husband has done tricks to outsmart even David Copperfield, but our business is about done. I don't only worry about "us", I worry about his remaining 43 employees.....
how' that for a "debbie downer" moment????
take care,

Oh Suz, that is too bad. I'm sure you all will bounce back better than ever. But I know you worry about the employees. As long as you are honest and up front with them, they will understand.

As a teacher, I feel a touch of insecurity & stage fright every.single.day. But I love my job.

It sounds like you're pretty excited at heart about this position; go with it, keep smiling, know we've got your back :D

Hubby learned yesterday that 100+ pilots and 200 other employees are being laid off at his company today . . . we haven't heard anything yet . . . so ya, a little nervous!

Oh Common Mom, that would give me nervous tummy for sure!
Steph, I could never be a teacher! So many qualities required that I do not posses. But I truly admire those who are.
