Where have I been?

Where have I been?

Yeah! Hi Blog. Did you miss me?

I can honestly say that operation peek-a-boo was a success. Apparently all that was found were adhesions. Adhesions hurt!

So now that I feel somewhat better I have had less of a need to vent..hehe not really I feel better physically but I'm stressed to the max!

HOLIDAYS + my store closing = STRESSED LIZ

Yep, you read that right my store is closing. In fact, December 26th will be our last day open. My big boss came to visit me on my first day back from my medical leave from surgery and gave me the wonderful news. Yay! How nice of her to come welcome me back to work! Not. I love my boss and all but this was so not what I needed right now.

They gave me two options 1. Get severance/laid off OR 2. Transfer to another location. The only problem is the other locations are at least an hour away from my house without traffic. So guess what option I'm choosing? Yep #1 I've decided to take the severance package and explore the local job market.

I made this decision for two reasons. 1. I need a change. I'm sick of working weekends and nights. I know this is going to sound so self-centered but working as much as I do and having such a crappy schedule makes it hard to have any type of social life. I don't date. I don't have time between working out, school, and working my 50 hours a week I'm done, tired, and I need a change. 2. I know that I have been a great employee and can always re-apply when and if I was ready to make the commute.

So off I go into the scary world of unemployed adult hood. I've always worked. This is going to be strange but I'm sure I will find something I love. I am thinking about just doing something part-time to pay the bills. As I have grown older I have realized that money doesn't buy happiness. So as long as my bills are paid, I have a roof over my head, and a small shopping budget I'm a happy girl!

I guess thats my mini catch up. My family is still crazy, my Mom is good, and its freezing cold in San Diego! What the heck is going on with this weather? and I'm still taking applications for a sugar Daddy :)

I have tons of recipes I need to post. I have been super sick with this crazy cold, pneumonia, flu crap-like thing and I have been craving soup..well not really soup beef stew. Beef has not been my friend since my weight loss surgery but I do have to say I made some amazing beef stew last night... oh and the recipe for cranberry chicken with sugar free homemade cranberry sauce.

p.s. Did I mention that I bought a new MacBook Pro and I am in love with it!

  1. Congrats on the big step with work, but I agree(not even knowing you) that you made the right decision! I also worked weekends and nights for a longgg time, and it sucked. Not to mention the awful eating habits it put me in late nights. I hope you have a quick and successful search finding something you love doing. :-) Also, congrats on operation peek a boo too!
