Hey, everyone. I've been unemployed since September 28th, and, have been searching for jobs since about the first of October. I finally got one! YAY! I'll be the receptionist at a posh little Dallas salon. It's a really big responsibility, actually, bigger than any other job I've ever had. So, I'm pretty nervous about it. It's a lot of sales, product and service knowledge, answering phones, placing/taking orders, getting more clients, etc. Yikes. It's actually kind of managerial. But, hopefully, it's something I will enjoy. At least for now, it's a job! I haven't had a morning job in about four years, though, so, that will be tough for me getting up at seven am. Ick. I really need some good, positive energy coming my way, though. Ha ha.

The salon is really cute, and, the owner is super cool (at least so far!). I met him and a lot of the stylists at another salon (where I go to get my hair done) on Monday. I went with my niece to be a model for a line of color that they were demonstrating at the salon. So, I got my hair done for free, and, I got a job out of it. Not too shabby! Oh, and, the owner's little red smooth haired dachshund is always with him, so, there's Corkscrew running around the salon all day! That'll be nice! I wonder if they'd be ok with Finn hanging out, too. Ha ha....

Anywho, I'm nervous, and, rambling. Wish me luck, y'all! And, I'll let everyone know how it goes tomorrow night.

Sounds great! Remember to smile, and if you makes mistakes, say sorry sincerely. I need a haircut, too bad your salon isn't a little closer ... ;)

thanks, everyone! i'm getting ready to get in the shower, and, head out to dallas here in a bit. it's weird being up this early, with no intention of going back to sleep. it's actually been so nice not working, i really feel like going back to bed. ha ha, but, i'm also excited. it'll be so different! and, yeah, i love his little dog! he's spoiled rotten, but, that's ok. his name is corkscrew cuz his little doxie tail turns into a little piggie tail, right at the very end. he was born that way! once i'm there and am a bit more comfortable, i'll take photographs for you all. of course, they'll sit on my desk with all of finn's photos, too. waiting for a dang scanner! and, yikes, once i move into my own apartment (within a month or so), i won't even have a computer....boo hoo! public library it is.....anywhoo.....i'll update you guys later on how my day went.....thanks for the well wishes......

Hey, everyone (if anyone's still interested!). I made it through my second day on the job. :) I like it a lot, as of right now. I think I'll know for sure if it's me within the first week or so. So far, I think the owner is cool with me, let's hope I'm right. He seems pretty high maintenance. His dog, Corkscrew, really likes me, and, I spent a lot of time yesterday and today cuddling with him. :) So, that part is easy. I'm getting to know a lot of the clients, and, have seen some really good looking men. Goodness! The guy I really liked today was younger than me, but, very cute. His name's Charles and his sister got her hair done yesterday, she's really cute, too. I hope to see them both again, as they seem to be nice people. Obviously, I'd like to see Charles sooner. ;) Anyway, tomorrow morning, I'm meeting most of the people from the salon at a hotel in Addison to attend a seminar demonstrating hair extensions. One of the girls there is actually going to get them next week. Should be cool. And, monday, we're supposed to be having some sort of product knowledge class at the salon. I won't be getting paid either day, but, it should be beneficial in the long run to go to both classes. Anyway, I'll keep y'all posted if you want me to.... I'm just glad to have something to do again.
