how coincidental....

My phone has an app on it just for quotes. There is hundreds of them and it has a new one on there every day. Today's quote was this,

"Your children need your presence more than your presents." -Jesse Jackson

Lately I have been reevaluating my job. I love working with people and making them feel good about themselves, my coworkers are great, and it is fun to be around one of my favortie things, CLOTHES! However, my favorite thing in the whole wide world is my son and retail hours makes it hard to spend time with family sometimes. I told myself last fall I was going to walk away from retail for good and where did I wind up just 6 months later? a department store!

Money talks. Unfortunately it cannot and will not buy happiness. After a a lot of thought and input from my family I decided to go back to my old job. It is more flexible, better hours and just a nickle, dime, and quarter less an hour. Worth it? I vote yes.


  1. Mattie what is your old job??!

  2. I worked at a call center from December to march (almost April). It is Monday through Friday 9-5 but they got low on work and I had to pay bills so I had to find another job. Now though they are doing good so I went back! :)
