Gainfully Employed

Remember how a few days ago I mentioned that I needed to get a real job? I got one already! And it totally just fell into my lap!

I went into the Carters outlet yesterday to buy a birthday gift (you'll get it in a few days Avery:) ) and was chatting it up with the sales girl. We got along so well, I asked whether they were hiring and she said they were looking for a night and weekend person. Just the shift I was looking for! She gave me an application and insisted that I bring it back in today when the manager was there. Well, she was right because I got hired on the spot! I go back in tonight to fill out the paperwork and am hoping to casually find out whether there's an employee discount:)

Definitely not the level of work I was doing pre-kids but I'm so looking forward to it. I think I had almost forgotten that I could have a life outside of the house. Adult interaction here I come! I plan to continue bag-making for at least the next few months. I have tons of supplies built up that I really need to use and to begin with, I'll only be working 10-15 hours per week. Hopefully, everything will work out well and when tourist season rolls around in the spring and summer, I can work a little more and will probably start sewing much less frequently. Just think, I could actually start sewing for myself instead of you guys.

Awesome! I am so happy for you that it worked out so beautifully. I love Carters!! There is one less than 1/2 mile from my house and it is a dangerous place.
