What you can expect:
The brutal truth of me, without all the sugary coating.
Here I am just me, UNCUT and UNEDITED.
I talk about my family, my divorce, and a lot about MAKEUP.
If you leave me a comment, I will love you forever. :)

Lessons learned

Today was my first "real" day of work (after two days of orientation - staring at people who were talking, signing a bunch of papers). I'm too tired to form sentences, so you get a top ten list.

Top Ten Things I Learned My First Day:
  1. Retail still sucks.
  2. Bring lunch money. "I probably won't be that hungry" is the dumbest thing you've ever said.
  3. What made you think you could survive without coffee? Get real. Tomorrow you'll need an IV drip to get through the day.
  4. No one wants to hear all about your kids. Other people have real lives of their own. Shut up next time.
  5. You thought you were on your feet a lot before? Ha! 
  6. Not exercising means that your back will hurt. A lot. Lift some weights!!!
  7. Missing your kids sucks. But being out is pretty cool too. 
  8. Kick yourself for all those times you tried on clothes and didn't hang them back up or put them in the right place. Seriously. Shame on you. Karma is getting you back now, and it's laughing at your pain.
  9. The "end" of your shift is very much an estimated time. "I'll be off by 6" was a naive thing to say.
  10. Retail still sucks.
