My New Job Starts Tomorrow
View Larger Map
I get to start my new part time job tomorrow. Who knew that I could be unfairly fired from the Sears in the mall, then go work for the Sears Homestore in South Bend? I'm excited about it though. I already have some knowledge about the stuff I will be selling and it's a family-owned business. They close at 7pm during the weeks, so I will only be working on the Friday and Saturdays, and possibly some Sundays but not many. It's a pretty new store and they don't feel like the have the business yet for me to be on commission like I was at the mall, so I will be hourly instead. I don't know yet what the hourly amount will be, but I trust it will be fair. The new location is on Michigan St, just north of Ireland. The Grand Opening is April 9th, so I hope all my friends and family can make it to support me and the new store.
I have a second interview next Tuesday for a part time job that would be Monday-Thursday evenings and Saturdays for 20 hours a week. It's for 4-C's in South Bend and it's a data entry job that feels like it will be very similar to what I'm doing at the YWCA now and they even said I could work some from home. My mom used to have an at-home day care with 4-C's and the lady I had my first interview with actually remembered my mom. I feel a little overwhelmed at the thought of potentially working three jobs. I will definitely have to get my time organized, so I don't work myself to death.
Am I crazy? Possibly, but I don't see it as my life forever. I figure if I work like a crazy person now when Steve and I start a family, I won't have to work as much. I really want to be able to stay home for as long as I can after the child is born. I also really want to pay off our debt.
I was so stressed and angry when I lost my job at Sears, but it seems like things are really coming together. It's been a long few weeks, but I'm ready for the next adventure.
