I got a yob!

"An unfulfilled vocation drains the color from man’s entire existence.” –Honore de Balzac 

 There's a business near my home that I recently picked up an application from, then I thew it in a drawer and didn't touch it for a month. Thursday I went to Craigslist for the first time ever and I saw that this same business was looking to hire a new specialist. They called me the next day and I had my interview on Saturday.

I was hired on the spot! The only problem is that they want me to work A LOT, and hours that do not work for me as being a stay at home mom is obviously my top priority- so I can actually only work on Saturday
 ( which was mostly what I was looking for anyhow) and she'll be home safe with her daddy which is perfect-I don't have to worry about her, and the two of them can have some daddy/daughter time.

Great hours, great pay, great position, great business, unbelievably good location and the owners seem wonderful...I just hope I live up to their expectations! I would really like to hold onto this long term.

The reason I decided to seek employment was twofold. As I've mentioned before we have a trip to Disney planned this year...and I also decided that this is the year that we WILL pay off ALL our debts. To do both of these things without extra income would not be feasible. So with this job, the 3 weddings I booked for the summer, and a new idea that I'm really excited about-there should be no problem getting out of debt and rewarding ourselves with a deluxe vacation to a top resort! (prepaid in full OF COURSE!)                                                  


  1. Wooohooo Congrats *raises glass*

  2. Great news about the job, very exciting and must be a lovely experience that they were so keen to hire you.

    Good for you for standing your ground and only working when you want to work, that is always half my battle!

    Hope it works out for you and you enjoy the extra money:-)

    1. Thank you! Extra $ will be SO nice!! It's funny they actually want me to work a lot- but I cant- and I don't want to be away from my little heart that much anyhow- 1 days a week is a big change for us both..and difficult for is both-

      It is ironic to me that for years while the economy was so bad I struggled to find work, I was working all sorts of odd jobs, as much as possible and could never have dreamed about being in a position to turn down a good job, making good money!
