Five Years Ago Today

Five years ago today I started my adventures with Haagen-Dazs/Nestle Toll House Cafe at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park. Today is the very same day of the week it was when I started there — a Monday! I have mixed feelings about today.

On the one hand this is the longest I have held a job (even as an adult) and that shows a lot of commitment; on the other hand, I’m sad that this has been the longest I’ve been at a job and still it isn’t even in my major. I have nothing to really show for it that I can think of either. I can show that I’ve grown a lot and have had many challenges to face (e.g., losing a great friend/co-worker and stepping up to become the back-up shift lead as well as checking in deliveries). I’ve also learned how to deal with difficult customers a lot better than I did when I first started out in the corporate world about 11 years ago!

All in all, this job has been fun and great meeting lots of new people who I might not otherwise have met. I mean who would have guessed I’d meet a minister man of God who owns a franchise and would later become one of my greatest friends (and cheerleaders/”dad”? Things like that don’t happen every day!

Also who would have guessed that I would ever be in a kitchen-like setting baking when I don’t even like to bake or can’t even follow a simple recipe at home?! 😯 Not me, that’s for darned sure!

Five years are a long time and lots can, and usually does, change a lot in such a short and long time as that! Where do I see myself in the next five years? I have NO idea, but wherever it is, I’m sure it will be where I’m meant to be. 🙂

Love and prayers, now and always! ❤

Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink.
