Sales Woes, or Lack There Of

So, today has been absolutely dead boring. So far we've been open for an hour and not one soul has come in. I have a feeling it will be one of those days. To add to the boredom, it's a beautiful sunny day outside, and unusually warm for December. Chances are the beautiful weather and the fact that Christmas is a few days away will kill our traffic today.

As a result, I am trying to beat the boredom by writing. Unfortunately, also a result of the dead day, I'm blogging about my boredom. So as you can see it's a vicious cycle that may, or may not, be broken. The only way out is to get customers in here so I can sell them stuff! No people = no sales. Luckily for me this is only my 3rd week on the floor and I'm doing very well. I don't have to worry about money, just my boredom. I love selling stuff, it's fun and it feels pointless being here when I don't have people to sell stuff too.

Enough of my whinning. Tommorrow is my last day of work before heading to AZ. Finally we'll be flying out. I can't wait to see everyone again. It seems years since I've been home, even though it's only been 5 months. Plus I get to finally meet Zachary. I can't wait.

Ahah, that's it, I'm in count-down-mode. No matter how busy it may get, time will not go fast enough. It's just the way it works when one is about to leave on a trip, or have something else exciting happen.

Hey, it looks like a car may have just pulled in. One can only hope! It's hard to tell if it's in our lot or the lot next to us. Hopefully, it's for us, though no one has walked..... DOH, they just left. Oh well! So much for that one. Tis the Season they say!

Well, that's enough of my rantings for today. See you all later! :-)

Starting the Countdown

It's only 5 days untill we fly out of Oregon to Vegas and head to Arizona. Finally, Christmas is almost here. I am so excited to finally meet little Zachary. I can't believe it's finally here, time sure has flown.

I remeber last Christmas when Leah and James decided to adopt a baby. I was praying that we'd have a new addition to our family this Christmas. Finally, after years of waiting, God answered our prayers and blessed Leah and James with a beautiful baby boy. I'm so excited and thankful that God has blessed us with Zachy.

I'm a very proud Auntie and I can't wait to see him. Love you all :-)

Fun With the Pups

So, today was my Sat. and Aaron had his first final of the week. I dropped him off at school, with the dogs in the back seat, parked the car and hiked the hill around Aaron's school for an hour and a half. It was so much fun and the landscape was beautiful. Here are some pics! Enjoy!

Max and Leila on the Hill

They Can Drink from a Drinking Fountain! :-)

Pretty trees and a path in the woods!

Long Time, no Bloggin

Well, I've been so busy with my new job I haven't have time to add to my blog. So here's a quick update in a nut shell.

I decided to take the La-z-boy job and I've been working there since Nov. 1st. So far I love it, the people I work with, and what I do. It's a lot of fun. After a month of training, I'm finally on the floor selling things. So far I'm doing well, but I'm not sure if I want to stay in sales. I may have an opportunity in the next few months to move into an Interior Design position. Since that's what my degree is in, I think I want to take that position within the company. It sounds like a lot of fun, but I'll wait and see what God has planned for me. I don't want to do anything out of his will.

As for non work related life, Aaron is doing well in school and is almost finished with his first term of the first year. He has seven finals to go and then he gets two weeks off. As most of you know, during one of those two weeks we will be traveling to AZ to see our folks and meet Zachary. Finally it's almost here. I can't wait to hold the little kiddo and finally get to know him. I have only seen his pictures and I miss him.

We did have one slight tragedy, our computer crashed about a week and a half ago. It doesn't think it has a hard drive! YIKES! Well, we shipped it to my dad, computer genius man, and we're patiently waited for a diagnoses. I hope it will be ok.

Other than that, things have been pretty ordinary around here. Life continues as usual, and we're counting down the days until we get to go home. I work tomorrow, 11-7, kind of a weird shift. I hope we're busy so I can sell stuff!!! God Bless!

Me Being Silly (trying on stuff @ Target) We're pretty boring people. We go to Target for fun!!!
