Why I Broke The Diet for a Doughnut and Thrift Store Find
So, this week has been a big week in our household. Yes, I broke the diet and ate a doughnut. Why, you ask? Because, they were at work and I was the newbie. What? Well, I got a job and am three days into it. I work 20 hours a week from 9 am to 1 pm Monday through Friday, closed weekends and statutory holidays. You see, while working for hubby is great, and something that will continue, now that business is functioning and all set up there was not as much work for me, and I was lacking in the talking to other humans department. I have always worked, so waited until I found something that would use some of my past skills and suit our new lifestyle. This fits. If hubby needs some administration done he just waits until afternoon. I started on Wednesday, just dreading my first day like a little kid scared to go to Kindergarden. I survived that shift but was reserving judgement. Today, I came home after three shifts, and I feel great about accepting this position. The people are nice, the atmosphere relaxed and friendly and I have wonderful hours. Will it always be this way? Frankly, no, everyone can have crappy days at work. The upside is if it gets terrible I will just quit as we now have no mortgage and the financial fortitude for me to do so. I hope things work out the way they seem to be as I am really excited!
What will this mean? A little more wiggle room in our budgets for fun. Yippee! And the doughnut was a one off - celebratory if you will. I got a sugar rush and it made me dizzy. No more doughnuts for me!
