Now that I have officially given my two-week notice, I feel more comfortable blogging about my new job. I'll be working for Footwear Etc. in their on-line store division. I'll be providing over the phone customer service and processing orders. It seems like a fairly simple job. Of course, I'll have to spend time getting to know the product. I've already done some reading on their website.

I gave notice at my current job today. It was a lot less dramatic than I expected. I'm not sure what I thought would happen, but nothing did happen. I can feel myself getting emotional about leaving. I'm not attached to the job part of my work, but I have become very attached to many of the members. I feel like I have learned a great deal about being a woman/wife/mother from them. For the past two years many of these women have been a huge part of the pool of wisdom I draw from. I will miss sharing with them and gaining their perspective on life. I hope to keep in touch with them.

Is there any way you can stay in touch with some of them?

I posted a note saying that I was leaving and giving them my e-mail address and cell number today. Also, the owner said that I can keep a membership for free so I can come in and workout. I know I'll keep in touch with some of them.
I got a little teary eyed thinking about it today.

I'll have to put your store in my favorites. I had never heard of them. I use famous footwear or zappos all the time.

times and seasons... times and seasons

They are a really great store from what I hear. Everyone loves them. Their shoes are mostly "comfort" wear. A little pricey for me unless something is on sale. I did see some cute New Balance tennis shoes I like. Wonder if I get a discount?!?
