To Look at the Calendar

I started working a "part-time" retail job last week.  Suddenly, my calendar is out of control.


While it is "part-time," I'm working a few hours almost every day.  I'm feeling pretty loopy and stressed. 
How on Earth did I get everything done when I worked FULL time?


See that vacant look in my eyes?  That's a perfect illustration of what my brain feels like after a few hours of retail work. Let's say, I'm a bit frazzled.  Bless those of you who battle retail crowds full time, year round.  You are strong, patient, possibly a little bit insane and incredibly brave.

Skinny Jeans (roll inspired by Sydney): Old Navy; Striped Tunic: Thrifted
Necklace: Vintage from a local Antique Shop
Belt: yep, still don't remember
Boots: DSW
Earrings: Giveaway Prize (See, I told you I wear them CONSTANTLY)

Don't get me wrong, I'm so thankful for the opportunity to earn a little bit of extra money during the Holiday Season.  And if this job doesn't kill me, I can't wait to spend it.

And with that, I bid you ado until Monday! 
I'm looking forward to some time with our family and friends and one big old bird. 
Happy Thanksgiving!!

Cute outfit, and good luck with the retail job. I sure don't miss that type of work.
I also tagged you in a post. You now have 7 secrets to share when you get back from Thanksgiving with the family! Enjoy!

I love those jeans rolled up! And I definitely feel your pain working retail this time of year. I did it for the last 3 years, and it takes a toll on you, even though the shifts usually aren't that long.

I'm sure you'll be fine! They say if you want something done, ask a busy person to do it! And I envy that you're going to have spending money!
