Miz Hobby Lobby has almost left the building

Remember when I asked for prayers on receiving a certain work related assignment? Well I got chosen for the team and my scheduled departure time is fast arriving. I'm so nervous. I've never been on one of these new store sets as they are called and to top it off our District Manager made me Lead Person for the department I'm working in for this set. Can you believe it? So much confidence in my untested abilities is overwhelming and I sure don't want to disappoint him!

So here's the deal, I'm going to be gone for maybe as few as 6 days and as many as 14 days working straight thru the entire time incredibly long hours, most likely something like 8 am till 8 pm or 7 am till 8 pm or something similiar. The store will be set with merchandise according to the current corporate layout and I'm in charge of my respective dept, fabric and needlework.

I'll stay in a hotel room along with my roommate whom I've never met before, having been matched up according to smoking or as in my case non smoking preferences then our days will be spent work, work, working on putting a new store together. Mucho overtime pay! Pretty exciting but pretty nerve wracking too as I'm a homebody and will miss my family so much! I wish I had a laptop I could take with me but sadly I don't. There is supposed to be a pc at the hotel according to their website so fingers crossed I can keep up to date with all of you although I won't attempt to blog anything during this time.

So this is my temporary farewell post till I return and can update on my grand Hobby Lobby adventure. I'm taking my digi camera so hopefully I can get some tree fluffing pictures and do a tutorial on it. Truly it's simple, so simple you're probably already doing it! I'm so addicted to seeing everyone's projects! *smiles* I'll miss ya'll so much!

If this assignment goes well for me then I may be on the next one scheduled for Spring in the Charleston SC area! I love me some Charleston *smiles* OK my darling crafting diva friends don't forget me while I'm gone and I'll visit ya'll on your blogs as I can *smiles*

Bye bye!

You will be so busy, it will go by fast! My dh works out of town from time to time and all he does is get up, work, get some dinner somewhere, go to sleep.

I bet it'll be fun, too, exhausting, but fun :) Can't wait to see your pics and hear all about it:)

Stay safe, have fun, can't wait til you get back!!!
