it was kind of like christmas

Monday, February 16, 2009

Today was my first full day as a Bed, Bath and Beyond employee. It was pretty good, nothing too extraordinary happened. But the highlight of the day was getting to sit on the floor and put together one of everything for display purposes. Now, obviously we didn't get every item today; but I got to do it for about 2 hours. If you know me, you know I LOVE to put things together. So yes, it was kind of like Christmas (except I don't get to keep any of it).

So I got home from work and played around on the computer for about a half hour; until about 6. I then went and got in the shower. I got out about 6:20, went in to my bedroom to get my pajamas on and guess what I saw.......outside my window there were 2 spot lights aimed straight at my house. I went to the window, and there are about 4 firetrucks, 3 police cars and 1 ambulance out there. My heart skipped a beat! I threw on some clothes and went outside. The house next to ours caught on fire! Luckily no one was there, and it was put out quickly. It was a small fire in the bedroom.

But back to the part where I was in a towel and home alone! (yes, Mike's gone this week) The top picture is of the lights! I know it doesn't look like it, but they were very bright. My bedroom was glowing when I got out of the shower.

it's cool that you are working at BB&B. I love that place.
How are you going to keep any $$ that you make before you get home?!

It's going to be tough, but I'm going to try my best to not buy very much. :)
