A very JC Penny's Christmas.

Well, I got the Penny's job. They actually hired me immediately and I even worked for 4 hours right after my interview. (I sold TWO PAIRS of shoes. It was quite fun, actually.) I'll be rotating between women's, men's and shoes, depending on where I'm needed that day. Although the money is only slightly above "sweatshop," my 20% employee discount takes effect immediately. (Holla!) So, if I work the sales right and then add my discount, I should be able to get some good Christmas shopping done.

I'm scheduled for about 40 hours next week (my first full week), which is great--and I was even able to squeeze 26 out of her for the rest of this week. Best of all: I was able to schedule an earlier shift on Saturday so that I can still attend Cookiepalooza.

So, all in all, things are not going too badly. I've been in town 4 days and I have a new (albeit temporary) job and a wonderful young man who (he was quick to point out) did NOT stare at my boobs to hang out with. ;) Not to mention, of course, the upcoming reunion with my high school byatches, Kacey and Kishelle. (Lord, the three of us back together again...I'm not sure West Michigan is ready.)

Have a great Thanksgiving, Anna! Drive safely! Be sure to let us know about your break when you return.

I haven't talked to Renee yet, Kish. I know she was very interested in going; I will get confirmation probably on Wednesday.

Hey Kish, remember the infamous "size 8 skirt"? Well now I have a pair of size 8 jeans to go along with it. =-) It was pretty exciting. I LOVE my new job. (Of course, I say this BEFORE I go in to work my day-after-Thanksgiving shift....we'll see how I feel about it later tonight.)
