So if you already follow me on twitter then you would know that I am going on vacation soon. I am so excited it's not even funny!
I think the reason I am so excited is the fact that I never ever take real vacations. See if you know me you would know that I am a total work-a-holic. Type A - yep me...I might be a little bit of a control freak.
Usually I run a pretty tight ship at work and I have had to learn that for me to be healthy I have to let other people take more responsibility and not let everything fall on my shoulders (even though it usually does).
This past month when I was sick I lost a key member of my management team and can't find anyone to replace her for the life of me. I am out of options. I also lost a salesperson who found a full time job where as she only worked maybe 10 hours a week for me. I can't give her more hours so she had to quit...no biggie..I already hired another girl to replace her. In fact I think I might even of found another girl today but they are not management material.
So today my assistant manager calls me and tells me she might need to step down so she can go back to school full time. I'm totally screwed. I'm not mad at her but seriously this isn't what I need right now. She is a total cool lady and needs to do what she needs to do to better herself but I'm still screwed.
Yes, I am still going on vacation and leaving my store in a total staffing chaos. All I know is I have the schedule covered and I'm leaving. I won't answer my phone if they call me. They can figure it out without me for once.
This is a HUGE step for me. I am stepping back and letting go for once.
