You'd Think I Was Catholic...

Oh boy has the guilt blanket been thrown on me!

Isn't it funny when you hear all the things you wanted to hear....when you leave!

I got a call from my boss tonight. The first call since I told her I'm taking the position in Yuma. I feel bad. I feel like I'm leaving them in a bad position. She said she needs help finding someone with my level of training and management knowledge. She just hired two new trainers recently with no training background.

We went over all my projects - what could I finish and what could I hand off. My plate is quite full!

She then teased about my guilt and said she wasn't going to tell me it's ok. She jokingly said she wanted me to feel guilty. Boy, do I ever!

She went on about how she was losing someone very valuable and knew she wouldn't find someone to replace me level of skills and knowledge.

She then said I could change my mind...nothing was official yet.

I hate that! Because it made me consider it for a second. Although, I won't change my'll still run through my head until the move starts to really happen.

And I talked to who will be my new boss today, to ask her if I need to go ahead and put in my 30 days notice with my apartment (I need to do it by tomorrow). She said yes, she saw no reason why I shouldn't. However, she said she hadn't heard from her boss about the approval to pay for my move or to get me out of my lease.

I WILL NOT do this without them paying for it. However, if I put in my notice, I'm stuck paying $1000 to get out of my lease!

Although, one of the store's I will be running is opening tomorrow. She said, "I'll send you pictures of your new store tomorrow." She'll take care of me. She's never let me down in the past.

So needless to say, I'm a little on edge! Between the stuff it takes to get ready to move, everything I have to finish up at work, my school work (which happens to be the hardest class I've ever taken), and trying to make my rounds to NC and to my mom's to spend time with people before I's just very tiring! I just want it all to be done!

Anyone have a crystal ball? Tell me I'm doing the right thing!!

You're doing the right thing! You've gotten your experience in training now you're moving into multi-location management. It's great on a resume. Add that degree and you can have the job of your choice. ;-)
