Survived Server Boot Camp

Well last week was the beginning of my new job. I had to study like a lunatic and work like crazy. My days started around 6am studying then going in to work around 12 or 1 and ended around 11:30-midnight. Usually not having any breaks or eating in between while at work until the end of the night. I had some not so good trainers and then some that were out of this world. My kids were visiting cousins for the week so they were having fun and I didn't have to worry with their adjustment or well-being just yet. THANK YOU SISTER (Literature lover)!!!!

They told us before we took the test that only 1 in 100 passed it the first time. I was so nervous but knew I had done all I could to know it. I PASSED 1st time!!! :) Thank you so much for your prayers. It really got me through the week. In the middle of the week due to emotional and physical exhaustion I was about ready to throw in the towell but that night was one of my most fun. Last night was the first night on the floor on my own. It went really good! Again thanks for the prayer support!! I have my kids back Yea! and we had school and fun during the day and then my hours were much shorter for my real shift so all in all it felt so good to come together. I still covet your prayers for the coming weeks and months but thanks so much for all the encouragement!

I wish all your bloggy friends and family could meet there - with you as our server! We would have a blast and leave you a HUGE tip!

I hate for you to have to work but I did think all would work out for you because you are such a dedicated Mom, Wife and worker.
With your sweet and joyful attitude I am sure that you will have a line waiting just for your tables, that is where I plan to sit. I can bring a wheel barrow to help carry your tips home.
You are beautiful inside and out.
Love you,
Dad

I am proud of you!! You did a great job, not just with learning all the work stuff, but also in handling the chaos of it all. You are far too nice to not be good at waiting tables! Love you!

So cool to know you are AT LEAST one in 100 -- but probably closer to 1 in 1,000,000!! Congrats and way to go!

Call me Miss Know It All, but I KNEW you would pass.

I'm with joyfuljourney. I wish we could meet you there, too. Only I'd want you to sit with us, not work!

I know you are going to do great.

Yes, I like Supermom's idea better! Although I'd love to see you in action, I'd rather sit and talk and EAT with you!

By the way, if my post made you tear up - did you also read the one about Big Brother's birthday? (Aug 16) It makes me cry and it makes D grin from ear to ear!
