I am, as of yesterday, officially employed! It's been a bit difficult to get here, especially mentally. Twelve years of being a full-time homemaker has made the task an uneasy one, but I am so proud and happy to know that I will be helping out now. With my husband having lost his job and now in school for the last year, we've had to sacrifice here and there. But it's mom to the rescue! HAHA! I know, I'm a little selfish, in that I would rather continue to stay at home and do what I've been doing, but I know it's time for me to take on some more responsibilities. I've never had to earn money to help out, so it'll be very nice and rewarding. I'm pretty psyched.
So, where did I finally get a job??
At Borders! Well, I'm an employee of Borders anyway, but I won't actually be in the store. That's one of two downsides. I'll be in the Calender kiosk in the mall. And it's only temporary, that would be the other downside. So I have a job until February anyway. But it's a job, and it could potentially lead to a permanent position in the store, which is what I am hoping for, and I figure I at least have my foot in the door, you know. But on the upside, I get a discount off books!
I'm not sure yet when my first day is. I filled out all the paperwork yesterday and my name is on the schedule, but no days were marked. I have to call the lovely lady today and see what she has planned :).
I've posted previously about my situation regarding working and you all have been so unbelievably awesome and encouraging. For some people to be social is like second nature to them, but for me, it's not so easy. I really have to work at it. So I think working and being around different people regularly will benefit and help that side of me.
So that's what's new with me :). And I'm still diggin country music! HA! Oh, but I did discover last night that Breaking Benjamin has a new CD out. I must get that! I just love that guy's voice. It does things inside me, you know that tingly feeling *wink*. MUST. HAVE. NEW. BREAKING BENJAMIN. CD!
So anything new with you?
