New job, new apartment

Monday, 28 May 2012

I got 'released' from the job at FSUSA, for no reason, just 3 days before the 90 day mark. I don't know why. In the almost 3 months I was there they had been very happy with my job and given me several pay raises. Then one day they just said 'goodbye'.

About 2 weeks after that I got a job at Camping World. It was supposed to be a temp job, seasonal. But the day after I started my boss quit. That changed my job to full time, that was nice of him, heheh. He gave no reason for quitting, just simply walked out. Anyway, I had told him when I started that I would take the temp position but that I wanted more and would take whatever they wanted to give me. After he left I told my new boss the same thing. Then the store got a new GM and I told him the same thing. At 3 weeks into the job the GM asked me if I wanted the position of Merchandising Mgr. Of course I said Yes. I've never done that before, but I'm a fast learner. And now, about 2 1/2 months into the job it's going real well. Appears everyone is happy with my work. And the store is just 2 1/4 miles from where I live so I can bike to work.

Also, about 3 weeks ago now, I moved out of the house I was renting the last 2 years, since Cheryl's death, and moved into a small 1 bedroom apartment. My neighbor, at the house, let me put some of my stuff in his shed, that saves me from having to rent a storage place. Plus his shed was almost empty anyway. The house had been broken into several times. Once a couple months back my 32"LED TV was stolen, then just recently when I was moving some stuff from the house to the apartment it was broken into again. And this time they tried to steal quite a bit more, but apparently got interrupted and left. But the worse part is they left with my camera bag. My Canan DSLR and 3 lenses, remote shutter release and other accessories. I reported the serial numbers to the police but nothing has turned up in any pawn shops, and probably never will. I miss my camera more than the TV. Plus it will cost a heck of a lot more to replace than the TV, if I ever decide to replace the TV.
