Your Right

Today I made a big girl decision. Quit whining and be patient, just learn the job. I hate not being an expert. I like to be large and in charge! I'm so out of my comfort zone but in the long run it will be good to get stretched. It's not easy but usually good things are not.

The Piggie made a comment about NORDSTROM'S. Sometimes I suffer being here. Reminding me about my FAVORITE store is enough to make me sit down and cry. Really is there any place like Nordy's? I could do ads for them. I love the piano music, the cafe up stairs where we ate lunch and drank the most delicious coffee. They sell killer chocolate cookies. Now I'm warming up to the subject. The clearance racks have the best deals, I got a fabulous full length teal gabardine coat for $40 off that rack, those days I was a size 6. We went from Macy's to Nordy's and shopped till we couldn't take another step. That is exactly where the sales ladies DO help you buy clothes. They would actually tell you if something looked bad and just keep hunting until you found something wonderful. Their sales are so good they really are a wonderful place to shop. Twice a year they have a major shoe clearance sale that was just plain a shoe feasting frenzy.
I found some of the most beautiful designer shoes,....I need to come to California. I really really need to come to California.

Nordy's was also a job I had in college. I did sales for Men's Sportswear. The men were so easy to sell too, I would suit them all up and send them on their merry way....loved it and still do. When my first son was little we would drive up to Nordy's and he would say...we're home. Yeah he knew me well.

Come ... oh please come! Oh wait, I don't have a Nordy's in Grass Valley. Shoot! I have only a pathetic Pennys and a dreadful Kmart. Rats! Come and we'll do mail order over tea. Hmmm ... would you come just for the cookin' and the hugs? You look great in Rachel Hugs!

I watched To Kill A Mockingbird tonight (again) and thought of the mockingbird outside the bedroom window in your fabulous tree.

I miss you!

Hang in there with the job and I'll keep praying. You'll know, without a doubt ...

Don't get discouraged about your new job. Hopefully everything will work out in the end and you will be the best person they ever had in that position!

I am glad to hear you are going to take a deep breath and just keep on keepin on. My brother in law doesn't know how to leave his work at work and the stress is killing him. Please don't do that!

I was in Nordstrom's one time in my life and the price tags made me feel like I was in the wrong universe. Is it because their clothes are so much nicer?

Here there are no cheapy stores at all. No Walmart Kmart Penneys or Sears. If you don't buy quality clothes to wear you will suffer physically from the wet and cold. Everybody that's anybody wears North Face and Mountain Hardware. Heck, the best place to get yourself something fashionable is Orion's Sporting Goods! LOL

Nordstroms? Macy's? What are these names? I remember them way back in my memories somewhere...., a faint recollection of shopping heaven when I had a job and money and children that wanted Pacific Coast Highway clothes and Van loafers. Ah! the memories. Wait! Where am I and what happen to me for a minute? Sorry.
