on holiday...what to do

To answer Steph's question about if I will be knitting during my holiday...I did feel a sense of relief at just the thought of knitting. :) I was saying to Sam today that it is not one of those "AH" feeling sort of holidays. I still have a lot to do. And as I mentioned, I will be in the store Wednesday to get "signed off" to become a shift supervisor qualified rather than just a piddly shift supervisor in training. Silly how I have been running shifts and doing all of the duties of a proper supervisor, but I have to wait 3 months to get my raise. But I wont go there. I am planning to make a flourless chocolate cake with raspberry sauce for our coffee tasting.

I will also be in the store again for a supervisor/manager meeting on Friday. This is a long needed meeting and hopefully we will be able to address some of the issues that have been causing me and my collegues so much stress over the past few months. I have also raised the radar of our district manager, so he will be getting minutes from the meeting and will be checking with my manager to see how he will be dealing with these issues. So during this week I will be rehashing a lot of what I had been though and bringing up a lot of those feelings.

But Tuesday will be a nice time with friends as Sam and Peter will be hosting us along with Emma for my birthday. Yay! Wednesday night is Bible study, Thursday night is Open Fellowship at church. I would also like to get some things on ebay. I have some Buttermilk Barn( www.buttermilkbarn.com) parties coming up that I need to prepare for. If it doesn't help us pay January's rent at least it will help pay for our tickets home.

So, it will still be a busy week. The good thing is, I will be back to work one week, then I will have another week's holiday. Woo-hoo!

Just to let everyone know, the Buttermilk Barn products that I've personally smelled are very true to their scent, especially the coffee. Everyone has nice comments on my basil-sage-mint room spray. Can't wait to get the fresh cut grass, and the Katmandu.
