So after 2 long weeks of training in sunny Modesto California I am home. I will be working for Stanton Optical. We open here in Omaha in about a week or so. I will be working with the Doctor and selling glasses and contacts again. The people I will be working with are great and I think it could be a lot of fun. The store is still being built but they're really close. I'll let you know when we open.
California was sunny and beautiful all but one day. On the day in question people freaked out over a little rain (2" over the course of a whole day) and 30 mph winds. Here in the Midwest we laugh at weather like that. People were amazed. They were shocked to learn that there was snow where I was from that week. I was rather pleased to come home to find sunny warm weather had returned to the Midwest. Theres no place like home.
I did have a great day off with my new GM Stacy. We went to San Fransisco for a day of shopping in Chinatown. And lunch and more shopping on Fisherman's Wharf. My budget was tight so I did not look for yarn. I knew I would just long for yarns I can't really afford right now. However it was a great day. I love the feel of a big city. We saw cool local artist and old white guys breakdancing. We also got to see the invasion of the sea lions at pier 39. There were so many, the picture only shows about a quarter of them. This is becoming a problem for the boats in the bay. Many boat docks had a random sea lion just hanging out there. Makes me wonder what happened to their home.
I didn't have tons of knitting time, but I did finish Hubbys birthday socks.
