...five more working days, that is, until I am DONE AT SHOPKO! Tonight, my manager called a huddle, and half of the huddle was focused on me leaving. Maybe it wasn't quite that long, but it seemed it because I get really embarrassed when I am the center of attention. I got a one-year-of-service certificate (even though I'm technically a few days short of a year). Guess I deserved it.

I have a decision to make about what I'm going to use my $15 gift card on. I received it when I was chosen as "most outstanding employee" or whatever that certificate is. I want to use the gift cards before I leave so I can also get my employee discount. I will choose among the following:

  • A Bissel Spotscrubber. I will need to get this anyway because all of the apartments we have looked at thus far have had white carpet, and Ian and I are kool-aid bandits and often spill. Plus, I need one before I get my cat so I can clean up pee and puke spots.
  • A 3 in 1 grill/sandwich cooker/waffle maker. I really want one!
  • 15ish dollars worth of totes.
I will be happy with any of the above. I will most likely be buying all of them anyway, so I guess I just have to choose which I want first.

Well, I am watching Golden Girls and cooking some turkey for when Ian gets off of work. I still need to shower as well. We are getting up EARLY tomorrow to do more apartment hunting. I wish we could just decide on a place!! I want to move!!

I'd go for the grilling appliance first, and buy the Spotscrubber later, along with all the other stuff you'll need for the cat.
You can pamper yourself with a couple of totes after your first successful week at the new job!! :-)

Honestly, I'm kind of leaning towards the deep cleaner. I know I said I wanted a grill, but I also want a deep cleaner!! I'm a nerd and think household appliances are amazing!
