It’s been a BUSY week. Lots of news!
GOOD NEWS FIRST
Last week I had a 3 day trial period for a job as a baby sitter/personal assistant/organizer for a family who runs a small business from their home. They’ve decided they’d like to continue working with me, hooray! Their Craigslist ad never mentioned what type of business they ran and it just so happens it’s a video production/design/editing/photography company. Without knowing this, they gravitated towards me because of my background in animation. There’s potential for growth there! That degree might actually do something for me after all! The stars have aligned! I’ve really enjoyed working with them the few days I’ve been in, and look forward to working with them more in the future.
So I’m no longer jobless and I have not one job, but TWO!
I had an interview Monday morning for a local house cleaning business. I was basically hired at the interview. I guess my correspondence with her leading up to the interview was enough. It also helped to have experience in maintenance cleaning…easy transition to house cleaning, minimal training required.
Both are part-time, 10-15 hours a week to start. The house cleaning is in the morning, the personal assistant work is usually in the afternoon but they’re flexible with my schedule. It’s amazing how things end up working out! It took long enough!
Hubby is leaving for about an 8 month deployment sometime in December. It’s kind of sudden. There’s a lot that he needs to do before he leaves. I’m slowly making new friends out here and with the new jobs, I think I’ll end up sticking around even after our lease ends in April. I guess it’s good that I’ll be keeping busy between two jobs, volunteering at the shelter and with Make-A-Wish, plus continually trying to make some sort of side income, to help fill the void of him being gone for so long.
While I’m feeling a bit tired and warn out from a crazy-busy week, I’m happy. I like keeping busy. I’m more productive and less likely to procrastinate. It will seriously be easier for me to get into a routine and form better eating habits, I’ve been struggling with those for months now. Facebook and endless streaming videos on Netflix will no longer be a big time suck.
TRYING SOMETHING NEW
As I’m writing this post I’m eating my first ever attempt at making an egg mcmuffin in the microwave and I thought I’d share the end product…
Go ahead and laugh, I did! The bottom of that cup was the same size as an english muffin so I thought it’d work. Nope. Using a bowl next time! It’s at least edible but maybe a little over-cooked, and lacking meat.
What’s new with you?
