January Monthly News

Welcome to the January 2023 edition of monthly news! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Here's to a better year than ever before! My year starts off with a promotion of sorts at work. As you probably know, I work at a grocery store as a cashier. Fancy, I know..... But now I am also in file maintenance. That is a job where you are responsible for the tags and pricing in the store. Currently there is only 2 of us girls that do it, so I'm honored. This job is suited to someone like me. So I am happy! Got another tattoo to celebrate! #19 I go to the Tulip Bulb show and the Mum show annually, so the fact she designed this and had no idea how perfectly fitting it would be.... I just told her something pretty but whatever she wanted to do.  I love it!  What's new in your world? BOOKS: Gigi, Listening - Chantel Guertin (recommend) The Garden - Tomi Champion-Adeyemi (recommend) Persephone - Lev Grossman The Six Deaths Of The Saint - Alix E. Harrow (recommend) What The Dead Know - Nghi Vo Against
