Let Me Know If I Can Help You With Anything

Job. Job.  I may be getting a job outside the home.

I am so stressed about this!

I have been working from home (which I relate to = earning money) for about a year.  I am so lucky to be able to create my own hours with my on-line business and also be involved at my girls school.  I'm very well known by the Principal and teachers ;-> This was very necessary this past year and I am so thankful to my husband for our situation.

Now, about this new situation.  I filled out a job application this morning and I haven't done that in, oh-my-goodness, well a very long time.  I was going through the ol' memory bank of experiences and asking myself 'What year did I work there?' , 'Is this business office even still there??' and 'Did I see my former employer in the Obit's?'  It's sad to think that your work reference could have passed on due to old age.   Just how far back does this Work History need to go, anyway??

This whole situation came up out of no where.  I was shopping with my family at a store that I just love, and it just so happened that the store manager was assisting me with my purchases.  I honestly don't remember how the subject came up but she said "I'm hiring for part-time.  You should come by Monday and we'll talk."  She handed me an application and that was that.

Now, if this were September my feelings would be different.  But it's summer break and I need to get my girls (14 & 11) to their day-Summer Camps and school summer session's.  We have our family vacation scheduled in August.  Why would she hire me if I need time off in a month?  And I know that working weekends is highly probable and that makes me sad.

My last job outside the home was more of an office job and this job is retail. Most of the people that work there are half my age.  Oh my stomach hurts!  A part of me wants to do this, and a part of me is very nervous.   I went to speak with the manager this morning but it didn't work out.  Tomorrow morning, 9:30am I'm scheduled.  *breathe*

Have you been through a situation like this?

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!) Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story: I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair , my hair style was a nightmare. My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogram

My Questions Answered By Chef Pati Jinich - Video

Rob and I have been focusing on finding foods and spices that will help us take some weight off.  I've been slightly obsessed with staying on my exercise track (on week 8 now :->) and hope to get rid of this jiggly belly that has become wa-a-a-ay too comfortable on my body.  The older you get the harder it is to lose weight.  What I would say to my 40 year old self - 'See that pouch starting?  Do your crunches and planks now!  7 years from now it's going to get ugly !' I've found that spices cumin, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and turmeric are noted to increase metabolism.  ( Yes please !)  After a good workout coconut water is more beneficial in regulating your electrolytes, and lower in calories, than sports drinks.  It also contains more potassium than other drinks which is an important component in helping to build muscle which, in turn, helps you burn more calories. And my most surprising discovery - eating avocados help burn belly fat! I&#
