I'm behind on stuff from being sick one week, then rolling into a week long marathon to get the Christmas stuff up. The upside? The open house at work this weekend was a huge success! Compliments were given regarding the displays and whatnot. I had a nice atagirl from my boss. The downside? I had another closed door meeting with the boss and the floor manager due to the coworker who as mad at me because I inquired on things left unfilled, the counter strewn with items with unknown reason of abandonment and broken ornaments were found in many places. Apparently, he was a hair chaffed and I was just irritated because I came in to a festival of undone things and holes everywhere. I said that was fine, that next time I just won't say anything at all. My boss laughed and told me that she understands how I get in trouble because she does the exact same thing to people, doesn't mean to get people mad, is just trying to get things done and makes people unhappy. The meeting ended well, but I did boldly speak my mind and I'm glad that I can do that and not lose my job for it. My boss knows that I'm a hard worker and realizes that I pour my heart and soul into my job. She appreciates that. Still, I don't mean to offend people and I think that we are all just suffering from display/sales fatigue.
So, I sit here staring at a mountain of laundry. I need to fold it. I'm going to tackle it and at least fold it all into piles this evening. I'll put it away tomorrow. I haven't been this behind on laundry since, hmmm, let me think-- last year this time! I've broken my line dry rule and used the dryer to get pulled back up to my normal routine.
Must tend to laundry. I'm also crabby and not feeling so smilesy today. Pardon the lack of.
