In Valdosta

We have been in Valdosta for a week and received a nice Welcome from my new store. We left Robins the day after Thankgiving after a busy morning at the store. Arrived in Valdosta around 4:30 and checked into our hotel. I worked the entire weekend at the store and took Monday off. So, how's it feel to be the one in charge. I have to say that I am very happy. I haven't been able to stop smiling. I have received numerous compliments from the associates in the store even from some of the ones that I was told I would have some issues with. I am happy and love the new challenge of running my own store with my own team.
After 9 days of being here, we discovered that our Wii was stolen from our hotel room. Really sucks that somone could be so mean as to steal from our family especially this time of year. I have to say that I am very surprised because the staff has been so nice and helpful. But on a brighter note, God is good. My insurance company will reimburse me for the loss minus my $100 deductible, and one of my new co-workers had recently put one on layaway for a friend who decided they did not want it. She was going to cancel the layaway today until I told them what happened so she offered me the one that she had on layaway. We have filed a police report and USAA is taking care of the claim.
I will update you all soon as I have time and will download pictures as soon as I can.
Lots of love to all,
