This has been the most grueling week ever!! With two final essays due, six discussion posts down, and this is my second blog for the week cause my first was just cheesy!! And, now I am preparing myself for a 3 hr and 30 min. exam in A&P! It's crazy! I had to fire an employee for pulling a no call/no show. He, instead, thought it would be okay to call two hours after his shift started, to alert me that he wasn't going to make it in to work. How funny....and you thought you'd still have a job..not on a good day, either. I have found that employees are much like kids, so to add on, I now have 14 more kids...that's a total of 16 for that, if you, actually, I dare you, lol!! Please don't even attempt that! Scary!

We had an employee we were sure was stealing from us. One day, she was short 76 dollars and some change. I wrote her up and she signed and she offered to pay the money back, claiming she may have made a mistake, so I got her a form to fill out for payroll deduct. She signed it, all willingly, and left with a smile. Only to have her mom call the owners and threaten a lawsuit, saying I forced her to sign it. La, la, la, la, la!! I was extremely angry!!! As the story goes on, the owners knew I hadn't forced her into signing anything, ( I even had co-workers witness the entire meeting, but didn't need them to back me...anyway) so they stood behind me the whole way. The mother finally saw she wasn't able to back us into a corner, so the daughter quit. Gotta say my money issues are gone!! Imagine that!

Hopefully, my next ten weeks off will get the rest of my store lined out so that I can enjoy being in school and working again.. also, I may get to enjoy some time with the husband and girls(if the girls allow me/without driving me insane!)!!

I'm gonna miss all of you!! Good luck!!

I cannot believe this is the finale! At first, it seemed like it was going to last forever, but looking back, it really flew by! Just like the years that slip out of our hand. Somewhere, I feel as though I have lost a few years in my memory, but gained it all with age. But, with age comes knowledge, so I don't complain. I just wish that my kids would slow down on growing up!! What's the hurry, girls?? They are so young and do not realize how hard life can be and how fast time slips away. And, sadly, the older they get, the older I get. I fear the day that I must go on and the two of them don't have a referee. Who will stop them from staying mad at each other then?? But, it is so amazing to watch them grow up! They start out so small and helpless and go to loud and obnoxious, then to being high schoolers..... And, then, one day, you're holding their children just like you did them. Funny how life just makes a huge circle.

Well, I am going to say goodbye. But, Professor, I will try to post on here from time to time just to keep in touch with you!!

Darkness surrounds the moon,
Emptiness falls in the room.
Numbness begins to set in,
As our love comes to an end.

I begin to feel the pain,
The tears fall like rain.
The world stands still,
My head begins to reel.

Your voice is on my ears,
But your words I do not hear.
My heart begins to break,
As my body begins to ache.

There's a dark cloud above,
It engulfs me like a glove.
I see a light shine through,
And know soon, I will be over you.

Okay, this isn't one of my best, but it's the first one I wrote about my first love. He sure did break my heart. What I find funny is how people say that they don't care about their exes anymore. What I have found is that I still love mine, just not the way I love my husband. Had it not been for my exes, I would not have found him and I would not have my children. Some roads, though steep, rough, and painful, must be walked down in order to find your true blessings. This doesn't mean that after you find him/her that there are no more long, winding, rough roads to go down...instead, this means that you have someone brave enough to love you and don't mind walking down that road with you. I have been blessed in this life to have had so many love me and to be able to love so many. I have had my share of hard times and heartbreaks, but still, I survive them all. I have had friends forsake me, and ones who have stood by me. Through it all, I have made new friends, who have encouraged me to be stronger and to make my life my own. I just wanted to share this with all of you...

On another note, this week has been another crazy one. One of my assistant managers text me saying she quit--right in the middle of her shift. Also, while I was in seminar on Wens. But, she was nice enough to text a couple hours later offering to work out her two week notice, but that she refused to work that night. Hello??? Is this crazy or what?? How can I depend on you when you walked out twice already. I have given you your second chance and you blew it. Why do people feel they can act like a child and be treated like an adult all in the same breath? Crazy people!!

Anyone who's into the Twilight saga's, I went and saw Eclipse tonight and it was awesome! I love that movie! Can't wait for the finale of Harry Potter, either. I know Harry Potter's time was up, and though we all got burnt out on him, I am excited for the finale. It's going to be really good!

All of you have a safe weekend! Happy Fourth of July!! I will try to post again before Tuesday!
