Big Time Stress...

Lately, a pair of brown suede Puma's have been the center of all of my focus. Odd, I know, but here's the story. I got the brown suede Puma's from my sister for Christmas, and I was so stoked because I had been wanting them for a month. The thing is, they were a size too small. So the Saturday after Christmas, I took them back to trade them for the bigger size. Well, they are a discontinued style and FinishLine didn't have them in store anymore. So they told me to return them and they would give me a gift card that I could take home and use to order the shoes from the FinishLine website. As luck would have it, I got home and I could not order the shoes online. When I went back into the store, they had sold mine. So I was ticked. To make a long story short, I got the store manager involved, threw a fit, and my shoes were supposed to be in last week. As of Saturday, I still hadn't received a call to alert me that my shoes were in. So I called FinishLine and they told me they were there. Yay! So yesterday I went during my lunch hour to go pick up my shoes. Surprise, surprise, they weren't there. After once again calling on the store manager, he discovered that the store in Arkansas that was supposed to be sending them to Tulsa for me, never shipped them. My shoes were still sitting in the back room, waiting to be united with their new owner. He relayed my anger onto the store manager there, and they were supposed to be in the mail that day to arrive in Tulsa no later then tomorrow. Ha, we'll see.

So, needless to say, I was not very happy as I hustled back across town to be at work before my hour was up. Then I felt my phone vibrate. It was a voice message (I don't know how I missed the call) from OSU asking me to call them back. When I did, they told me there was a cancellation in their interview schedule for tomorrow, could I come? OF COURSE I CAN! This is my life, my future, and I will do whatever it takes to be there! Luckily, my boss is super understanding and let me off with only 2 days notice. Then I went last night and bought a new black suit with a royal blue shirt to go with it. Then I bought some smokin' hot blue high heels to top it all off! So tonight I have to prepare myself for the interview and hopefully tomorrow will be a success!

It is all very exciting, but stressful too. So please send your prayers my way, and I'll give you a discount someday at my practice :)
