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.
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...
