So this past week or so has been quite interesting. Allow me to explain why by digging into my past!! Don't be scared now, its alright!

I have worked at a credit union for 6 months now. Before that I was employed with Dillards, a large retail store thats like a Nordstrom. I quit Dillards because I was transferred down to the sales floor thinking I had no choice, but then realized I had a choice, but I couldn't go back to the Customer Service side of things. I really didn't like sales, it was not the type of thing I liked to do.
So I quit Dillards right after Christmas and found a job at the credit union. Its been a really good job, I've really enjoyed working here and I've made lots of friends. 
Two saturdays ago, I went into Dillards with Sven to buy some make-up because I've been running out of what I use, and was stopped by one of the managers that I was good friends with while I worked there. She was very insistent that I should come back, but I was hesitant. I didn't like working Sundays and having crazy hours, its been nice to work somewhere that closes at 6 and has holidays off. However, this manager was very insistent, so I played along. She told my old supervisor that I was interested, and she called me saying they had a couple positions opening up that I would be interested in. She told me that the Store secretary position was opening up because the current secretary was going to stay at home. I was in shock!! Utter shock, I tell you! So I told her I would think about it, and I called Sven. We talked about it and overall we had a good feeling about the change. The one position that I would ever go back to Dillards for had opened up. Its Monday-Friday from 9-5. Plus, I'd go back to what I left Dillards at, which is $4.00 more an hours than what I make at the credit union. So I told the supervisor at Dillards that I would take the position.

I went in on the next Tuesday to do all my paperwork and start training with the current secretary, because she was leaving that week, so I needed to go and learn what I could from her. I will not lie, I'm very nervous to do this all on my own. I have a LOT to remember and I'm really stressing myself out about it hardcore. I just need to get into it all and I'll be ok, but until then, I'm stresing out! 

Thats really the most thats going on right now, I'll post in a couple days about Sven's birthday. It went way better than I planned!! I just don't have a computer with all my pictures on it at the moment, so when I get time, I'll update you all on my sweet hubby's birthday :)

Song of the Blog: Savannah by Relient K. I've kind of been getting into Relient K again, I know, its a never-ending cycle with me and that band! I'll listen to them a lot, and then not so much and then a lot again. Right now its anytime a song plays on my phone, I don't skip past it! This is a good song though, plus I love how its titled my name :)

Wow! Congrats on the new job, and good luck learning the ropes! I hate starting new jobs-- the first two weeks are always so stressful because you just want to KNOW everything. but it will be a breeze for you in no time! And seriously, how lucky that it all worked out! It's like it was meant to be!
