As predicted, my hater had a hissy fit upon seeing me there yesterday and made herself look bad without me even having to put forth any effort. Isn't that weird? Who acts like that, knowing we'll be seeing each other again and again?
She managed to tick off a few people and I just laughed it off and looked better in the process. I was too busy to be too concerned with her and it ended up being a really fun day.
I still totally love my job. You're all probably thinking you're missing out on some juicy bitching, but you really aren't. At times it's overwhelming, and it is a ton of hours, and right now it's extra confusing because everything is new, but I still think it's the perfect job for me and I never wake up dreading work.
And can you even imagine how much fun it is to plan super fun themed events, buy prizes and shop at Target without spending your own money? It's like I get to be a writer, a shopper and a party planner. I've got so many fun ideas that I can't wait to do. I still feel so lucky.
Let's talk about manners though, people. Yesterday I was doing something that involved giving away prizes to kids. I found it hard to believe, but some of the parents were even ruder than the kids about trying to sneak extra prizes. I tried to just let it slide but towards the end I was running out of goodies and no longer putting up with parents shoving handfuls of prizes into their diaper bags...dude, if you want every color of the little bitty play-dohs, go to Wal-mart and drop $4.
Mr. Ashley brought the kids by and Big Kid won a prize from a certain color bag and admitted to me later that night that he really really wished he had landed on a different color. It would never even occur to him to ask for a different prize, even though his mom was the one who made the rules. He's a total rule follower.
After the all day affair, my mom and I took the kids to the waterpark which was open at night for some special reason. As we were walking out after playing, I asked Big Kid if he had a good day, getting to go to my event and the waterpark, and he said, "Mom, it was a day I will never forget. Dat's how good of a day today was."
It was a pretty fun day. Speaking of fun days, for my birthday Mr. Ashley and I are going to spend a romantic spa day at The Standard in Miami. YAY ME!! Best. Idea. Ever. I cannot freaking wait, my friends.
