Time For Change (Almost)

Two more days at Walgreens, then the weekend off, then I start my new job. I'm a little scared. Not that I can't do the job. I can. It's a very simple job. What I'm a little scared of is that I'm still suffering from this "chronic fatigue" and yet I'm starting a new job. For the first five weeks I have to show up at 7:00 a.m. and I'm not allowed to miss a single day because I'll be in training. It's going to be harder than hell to get out of bed that early! I'm going to have to set my alarm for 3:00 a.m. just to be sure I'm out of bed by 5:00 a.m. And I'm going to have to ingest a LOT of caffeine while this training is going on, I think.

My boss at Walgreens hasn't chosen to talk to me about why I'm leaving or where I'm going. That surprises me. My guess is that he's made some assumptions and he's sticking with them. Just to stifle those assumptions a bit, I asked him the other day, "If this thing with Convergys doesn't work, will you let me come back?" He just gave me an evil laugh!

What I really need, since Publisher's Clearing House doesn't seem to be coming to see me any time soon, is to be self-employed. I've got several ideas, but I guess I'm just worried that I wouldn't make enough money to survive.

I think I'm going to get busy getting a sales tax permit from the state so that I can do something to make my own money. I'll see how it goes then decide if I should quit my job!

I also have ideas for two great products, but I have no idea how to get them made or who I can trust with my ideas. So I have the potential to get rich quick, but have no idea how to go about it. Anyone have any ideas?
