I'm enjoying my new job.  I've been there just about four weeks now.  I probably am an old pro at the majority of it now.  I am still learning where everything goes.

The thing we have to watch out for is for people stealing from the store.  Why do people do this is beyond me and I think it is sad that they feel they need to steal.

It's a hot spot for stealing and we have security on so many things.  I never knew until I started working here that things like razors and tide have to be security tagged.  I've only been here for a little bit and already have caught a kid stealing men's cologne and several women who have walked out with something in their purse.

We can't check their purse of course but we can tell them that they are not welcome back in the store.  Really sad that people resort to illegal ways of obtaining something they want or need when most people use their honesty and decency to pay with their hard earned cash.

Anyway, liking the new job and I will try to post on my blog as I can find the time.

I've been spending these last few days with my oldest child before he heads off to Washington state for college next week.  It's going to be hard not missing him once he is out there.  It will also be a big change for his sisters and brother not having him around as much.

But he is excited to go out west and be on his own.

I've been doing some Christmas shopping!  I'm hoping to make a trip to Maine next month for my neices and nephew's birthday party and their Christmas stuff will be dropped off at that point.

I've been doing a bit of knitting.  I finished a yellow scarf for Julia and am working on a red and black skirt for me and a dishcloth.

I'm not sure how often I will post here now.  I've just gotten a new job and don't know how busy I will be.  I'm going to be working at Family Dollar and I start on Wednesday for training.  I'm so excited.  I was so excited to find out I got the job last week.

It's going to be a whole new thing  And I'm sure it will be fun.  I'm already thinking of little things I can eat on my break.  I went out and bought a bunch of oatmeal bars for break time. Dug up my little lunchbox for small stuff.

I will have to start seeing my kids on my days off and I'm thinking about starting to date again too.  I will take that one slow.  I will enjoy coffee dates and pizza dates.

And I've been sewing.  I will still have time to do my hobbies and write when I can get a chance.  I hit another writers block a few weeks ago after I got the story caught up with all the things I wanted to get into the second book.  Now I have to think about where the story is headed next.

Not too much else right now.  I'm cutting more circles for those yo yo's.  One daughter's blanket is done.  She just wanted it doll size.  The other daughter wants her's bigger.  And I may just have to make one for me that is larger.  I've got enough circles to make several I'm sure.
