I got my life back

Last night I slept the most sound and peaceful sleep I have slept in over a year. Is anyone still out there? I never did figure out how to get my blog roll back and have not had a moment to find any of you out there.
Well, a lot has happened in my little life. I have been not liking  hating this job for awhile, 60 hour work weeks, gone out of town four days a week, sleeping in cheap ugly hotels, management that can't find their way out of a paper bag, listening to the woes of store managers that are worked to death, under appreciated, under paid, trying to reset stores that are filthy, too much heavy lifting, did you know you can get a vagina hernia? bruises on my body all the time, developed acid reflux, insomnia. All for a pay check. A good pay check, but at what cost?

Yesterday, the poor little man that tried to be my boss brought the new HR guy (they fired the previous one, the only African American mgt. ever in the company) to a store I was working in, and right there in front of customers, employees, managers, proceeded to tell me they were going to have to "let me go". I have a bit of a temper, so as you might imagine, it was not pretty and the word mother fucker flew out of my mouth more than it has in quite a while. I might have thrown the new Epson portable printer they gave me, and I also might have thrown the new laminator, which I loved and wish now I had kept..... ce la vie.

So, here I sit this morning with not a thing to do. I can't believe how good I feel. What a weight that has been lifted. I can go back to the person I really am, regain some creativity and some quality of life. It has been eye opening, walking in the shoes of those who work hard for a living for $10 an hour and deal with idiots that are trying to "manage" the company, but who are only interested in money and profit and cheating customers with 80% markup on cheap Chinese products and doing things like going to Napa auto parts, getting a $4 part and charging customers $20 to put it on.

NOW some really BIG news!!!!! I have been secretly working on weekends to open a new store, and what these fools did not realize is that I was planning to resign at the end of the month anyway, HA!
Go over to this link and check out my new plan. Gerry and I are opening a garden/homesteading store in Mebane NC, hopefully by September, sooner if I get all my tax numbers in and get product ordered. This has been a dream of mine for so long and the Universe answered with many doors opening so easily, I will tell you more later.
Its good to be back!
