MY NEW (completely awesome) JOB!!



I got a job!!

So, you remember back when I was laid off right before Christmas? And how they wanted to hire me back? And how they never got the funds, and so I've been not-working, and mostly just sleeping since January??

Yeah. Kurt noticed that too.

"So, you're still spending money. Maybe you should make some."

I politely ignored his little remark, and went back to my leisurely shopping ways.

But then, on one fateful afternoon, I was walking by a Carter's baby clothes store...

...AND I WENT IN.

No wait, it gets better.

I ASKED FOR AN APPLICATION.

AND I GOT THE JOB.

Jump back!

I feel weird saying this, but it's kind of my dream job.

I love the merchandise (and I love my discount.)

I love my customers (who isn't happy about baby clothes??)

And I love my boss/coworkers

(that's probably the most important one. It can make or break a job.)

I even love the cash register! (I was gushing about it for days. No really, it was super exciting. It's a touch-screen, and it's so easy, and in past retail jobs that has been my worst nightmare.)

Every time I work, I come home happy. Actually, I don't even want to come home- it is that much fun.

And that secret stash of baby clothes that I've been collecting for the past few years? Is not so little anymore. In 14 years, I might even have enough to cloth a baby...

Congratulations Helena! So happy for you! Nothing quite like a job you love. I was laid off in Sep 09, then finally got a job in June of this year....and as of a couple weeks ago, I'm jobless again. It's crazy, but I'll keep looking. You give me inspiration!

Hrm. You might want to try to have your stash of baby clothes completed in 13 years, since your Grandma's time limit is 14 years. It's probably for the best that you have a year for "just in case". :p

Congrats on the job!
