Beauty Advisor to Housewife in 2 seconds

I was fired from my job Friday due to a simple mix up. The schedules were posted out of order causing me to be 4 hours late and therefore fired. I was really upset about it at first because I have never been fired before, but now I'm doing fine. So I am no longer a beauty advisor, instead I am now a housewife. And in a few months a student. So it looks like 2008 is going to be a year of changes. And big adjustments. I have had 1-3 jobs and worked up to 90 hours a week for 8 years, so it'll take a little bit to get used to this. Financially we're going to be fine, but any work on the house will be little to none. There will be things like painting and refinishing, but the big things we had planned like completely restoring the dining room and gutting the bathroom will have to wait a while. Right now I'm mainly focused on taking control of the house back from the animals and finally getting unpacked. Our 2 dogs and 2 cats we have inside seem to think that they rule the house and can help themselves to food in cabinets, tear up/eat the furniture, and drag things wherever they please because they do all these things when no one is home and they can't be punished since we can't figure out which one did it. Well that has ended. And as far as unpacking we have lived here for about a year and a half and still have a mountain of boxes that have been sitting unpacked. And that means I can finally decorate so it looks like some one lives here!

I'm really sorry about your job. It is said that when one door closes another one opens. It sounds like you are going to be OK. Good luck with the 4-legged children!

I'm sorry you lost your job, especially over a mistake like that. Good luck with the boxes and your house projects.

That seems like such a raw deal, losing your job over an honest mix-up. May 2008 bring you great changes.
