So my apologies to anyone that I've talked to in the last week or so. Or 2 weeks. Or the last month.

Work has really been a struggle for me lately, as some of the goals and requirements we have to meet are absolutely ridiculous. And I know I've been complaining about it. Sorry.

It's getting old real fast though, as they're upping the goals per quarter for this year (I made 10 out of the 50 required/80 incentive sales last quarter) by 10. I've been doing better since the 1st of the year and working on it more, but its hard for me to be the 'pushy salesman' type and speak to every customer that comes in about different/new products.

In addition, they're changing the hours and we're going to be opening up at 8:00 rather than 8:30, and closing at 5:30 which means I wont get home until 6:00 at night. True, I only work MWF afternoons, but still... I've been working full time these last two weeks since I've been off of school.

Anyway, sorry to be so negative. I keep telling myself that once we get back up to Wisconsin and Joel will have steady work, I can find a different job (hopefully in my field!!) that I actually enjoy.

Hey, complain all you want, it's your blog. And I know what you mean about being a pushy saleperson type, I couldn't do it and would hope I never have to, we'd starve.

Haha... what? "red" Jeanine? :) It's been really challenging for me, but it's probably good to learn those skills for when I'll have to promote my own work.
