Times...they are a changing!

First of all, I would like to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers about my job. Your thoughtfulness means a lot to me. I started my new job last night and I think I made the right store choice. I really like my immediate boss, we clicked right away and I already know we have the same opinion about several issues. The 20(?) year old that trained me in the service desk/office was a very pleasant surprise. She called everyone over to introduce me and was great at explaining the way they do things. I expected every store was the same but there are several differences in procedure. Tonight I have my first night on register.
Those of you that have read my blog for awhile know that this is the time of year that I need a change in decor. I have been thinking about changing this entry for awhile. It is very small and has doors leading to the outside, the kitchen and my tiny bathroom. It also has a wall ironing board and a coat closet. I will be changing from this cutsie country to...
...You didn't actually believe I was going to tell you already did you? All I'm saying is that this is my inspiration.
Since we got about 5 inches of snow overnight and are expecting 6 more today and 3 more tonight, the shop is very slow today. I have started priming the walls. I stripped the wallpaper border but not the walls. I don't usually paint over paper but the paper is still very tight and the only thing over wallboard, so I decided to try it. I'll keep you posted.

I'm so glad the job worked out in a way that you are comfortable with. That is such good news. I'll be watching for your re-do on your walls. Have fun with it!

I can't wait to see the redo, Jean.

I have one wallpapered room and I am dying to get rid of it.

I have no idea how to get the wall paper off. I am afraid I may damage the walls removing it.

I have thought about painting over it, but have been afraid to try. So I will be eager to see what you think when yours is done.

Glad to hear the new job is working out.

Jean, looking forward to seeing what you picked for your new border and colors. Actually, I LOVE what you had in there originally...it's the exact same border I have in my small guest bathroom downstairs. (Glad you liked your first day on the job.)
