Dunno what to talk about

But it's been a week, so I should write something.

My surgery is scheduled for January 19th. I scheduled it on a Monday because I'm off on Mondays and Tuesdays. My bosses said they would cover my Wednesday shift so that I could have an extra day to recooperate and I have to work an extra day the week before because female boss will be in Texas for a meeting. I will have off until that Thursday night. That should be plenty of time to recover. I'm actually getting excited about the results that I will most likely get from the surgery. Just a few more weeks and one more lovely visit from my monthly friend before I (hopefully) never see her stupid face again :)

I'm going back and forth about whether to contact an old friend with which I had a falling out earlier this year. This is a former co-worker, who did not leave on good terms. Her departure caused me a lot of shit at work to deal with, but ultimately was great because the job wasn't right for her and she was miserable, thereby making the staff miserable. Funny how when she worked Sundays, I had a shortage of servers, but after she left, I have an abundance of people who can work on Sundays.

Anyway - we parted on very bad terms. Mostly because my boss backed me into a corner, based on what this person had done, and I needed to prove to her that I wasn't leaving, so I let her know that the other manager had been trying to get me to leave the restaurant, but I said no. Well, my friend took that as an afront to her - a stabbing in the back, as it were. I don't see it that way. I had to save my reputation at work. There is nothing like hearing "I can't trust anything you say because *** lied right to my face, why wouldn't you?" Um, because I wouldn't?

Long story short, she has made up with the owner of the restaurant and, apparently, has been coming by the restaurant on Saturday nights. It bothers me, I won't lie. Mostly because I listened to all the insults she spewed about my bosses before she left. But, I understand people get angry, disillusioned, whatever. Now that she's at the restaurant on a semi-regular basis, I feel like perhaps I should reach out and repair the situation. I don't want to run into her there and have it be awkward. This is MY job and I will not be made to be uncomfortable at MY job because of someone else.

If I do reach out, I run the risk of being hurt again. It really sucked when the friendship ended because we used to hang out all the time. I seriously don't want to open up the door to having her be an asshole to me.

So, I have to figure out if I want to do it or not.

Cassie finally got a job, but she hasn't started yet. Not exactly sure when she will start. At least some of my 'up in the air' crap is now down on solid ground, so that definitely helps my stress levels.

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve and I'm closing at the restaurant - should be a fun night. I hope all of you have a great New Year's and are safe, safe, safe!!!
