New Job!!

For those of you who don't know I started my new job last week on Monday. I had quit working for my parents the beginning of March and did not have plans to go back to work because I wanted to concentrate on getting pregnant and also helping my husband with his company but I soon became very very bored staying at home and one day I received a call from an electrician that I had become familiar with while working at Mesa Lighting, he is starting a retail store and offered me a job running it. I met with him the next day and I started work a few days later! I am so excited and can't wait until we open the doors!

So everything has been going really good we have been patching, sanding, painting and so on to get the place ready to open because it is in really bad condition, for those of you that knew where Crismon Flowers used to be on Power and Main, that is our new store, and it is a house that was built in the 40's I believe so we had a lot of work cut out for us but it is looking so good!

Well on Friday me and the owners daughter, Tori, were painting and she decided we should open the front door to let some air in, well I gave her my keys and a few seconds later I heard her call my name to come help her open the door because she said it was stuck, we had the floors refinished and the door had been getting stuck ever since, well I came in from the other room to see if I could help! I tried to push on the door and it wouldn't budge so I turned to the side and gave a little push with my butt and the next thing I knew I heard a crack!! Sure enough my butt had busted the glass on the door!! We could not believe our eyes, I thought "so much for my job"!! Well I got right on the phone and started calling companies to get an estimate on the cost of the glass, over $300 and it would take 3-7 days, of course we are supposed to be opening on Tuesday!! I called my boss and told him the cost and I started to cry because I felt so bad, luckily he is such a nice guy and made a joke about it but I still feel terrible!!
