Little Steps at a Time

September 21st, 2006 at 12:29 pm

I currently photograph all of the newborn babies up at the local hospital and offer the moms picture packages. Usually work Fri-Mon so that my husband can care for the kids on weekends. Awesome job and many times it doesn't even seem like I am working. Unfortunately, it is commission only. The counts have been way down and so is my pay.

I'm actually proud of myself for stepping out of my comfort zone. The rest of my week is time to myself. It is endless loads of laundry, cooking, and cleaning. Spotted a help wanted sign while doing errands around town. Stopped in and introduced myself, talked to the owner and applied for the job. I was hired on the spot. I know nothing about candymaking but, am willing to learn. It is a family owned candy company and 5 minutes from my house. It is from 9-12 M-f and quite a bit more than I thought the pay would be. I get paid 2x a month doing pictures and now this will be another contribution to the family budget on a weekly basis. A short shift everyday seems much more doable to me and will still allow me to be here for the family. I'm very excited and start on Monday. Haven't told the family yet.

    Congrats on the new job! I recently watched a special on the Food Network about a candy store and how all the candy was made. It looked like a fun job - I hope you enjoy it! Smile
