I did it!

By Monday, September 26, 2011 21 No tags Permalink 0

After much ado and tons of talking with the hubs, I’ve done it. I got a new job!! I dropped my application, had my interview, and got the job all in less than 2 hours! All in one day, tee hee!! I feel quite accomplished.

Where?

 

 

Well, at Hobby Lobby!! And I am so excited!! I am starting as a part time cashier with the possibility of becoming a full timer depending on how good I do my job.

First day tomorrow. 9-5, Tuesday-Friday. Weekend off, so we better plan something cool for those two days! I might have to do night shifts here and there so I’ll miss some dinners and tucking the boys in for bedtime here and there.

This will be quite the journey. Wife, mommy, blogger, new job. It will take some time to get used to specially since the schedule is not 100% set from week to week.

 

So, if you live in Parker, CO come say hi @ the Hobby Lobby on Mainstreet!!

    Congrats! I’m too far north of you to stop by, but my local Hobby Lobby practically knows me by name. I wonder how much I would have to pay them each week, if I actually worked there?!

      Hahahaha….I know what you mean!! I’ve never shopped there (we didn’t have one in Oregon) but there are so many things I’d love to buy! And I am pretty sure your store knows you by name!!

    We don’t have Hobby Lobby here, but we do have Michaels. I am afraid I would spend all my paycheck!

      I am afraid I might do just that!! It is a pretty cool store if I may say so….and we didn’t have a store in Oregon either, so it is all pretty new to me!

      It is a great store!! To me it sort of feels like a combination of Pier 1 and Michael’s!! I have so many items on my wish list already! hehehe

    Congrats, Sofia! I hope you do not miss the boys too much while you are at work… But it sounds like you have the option of keeping the job part-time, so, hopefully, you will have the best of both worlds!

      I am a part-timer, I might keep it that way to be honest….it is so hard being apart from my boys for so long! Once I get home we have to go pick them up from Grandma’s then it’s dinner, bath time, brushing teeth, jammies…and they are gone to bed!! And I see so many kids at the store…I wish I could bring mine along, hehehe!

    Sofia,
    I still can’t believe that you guys are in Parker and so close to my parents!!! We will be there for a whole week of Thanksgiving and probably bored so lets get the boys together and play. There is actually a Pump It up right near you were the boys can wear themselves out. You place is so close to the heart of it all in Parker.
    As for the job congrats. I will have to introduce you to my Grandmother if you don’t get to know her by the time I get into town. She is there at a least twice a week I swear.

    Talk soon about Thanksgiving.
