Quick Somebody Shoot Me!


This week is killing me and there is no end in sight! I have a store that is understaffed and my top performing supervisor broke his ankle and is out until December. Breathe.

I came back and am drowning. I am smiles at work. I do have a couple of great new partners and have enjoyed watching them keep calm and push through. I have seen some tenured partners shine this week and that warms my heart! I have seen some partners just go through the motions am that kills me. Breathe.

I have hugged so many customers/old friends that are so glad to see me return and my heart melts. Everyone asking about Callen and gushing over his adorable ness makes my heart smile. I have heard the thank god you’re back maybe things will be back to normal comments and it breaks my heart. Breathe.

My team did an amazing job while I was gone and I am so proud. The interim manager made some good choices in hiring people and I am so thankful! I know things get off when a manager leaves for that long but I just hate hearing the whole things were….blah blah blah while I was gone. I miss all my customers and I know they mean well. I know even the indifferent partners missed me. You know how people say they need a vacation from their vacation when they return? I needed a non work week return. I need a week to get back in the groove. I have today off then it’s 5 very long days beginning at 3 am. Breathe.

I can do this I have Howard’s voice in my head. I got this!
