A Second Job
So I have been constantly looking for ways to make more money because we can't afford a house if we can't save some money. An opportunity for a second job came up several weeks ago and I put in my resume for it. I didn't hear anything for 3 weeks and thought I didn't have a chance and then they called.
As most of you know, I work at the Boys and Girls Club. I work 35 hours a week from noon until 7:00 p.m. every day which only left mornings and weekends for a second job, however, during the summer my hours change because of our Summer Camp which makes it even harder to find a second job.
This job just happened to fit in perfectly. It is at a Mistletoe State Park. Yup, absolutely the most perfect place for me to work. It is a absolutely beautiful park. I will work weekends and Friday afternoons during the summer and then just weekends during the winter. It works out perfectly with my summer hours at the Club because I will work full days Mon. through Thursday for them and then a half day on Friday.
I have worked two weekends already and I really love it. The people are incredibly nice and the customers are all so happy to be there (not so much a the Boys and Girls Club). I am learning the system pretty quickly (so they tell me) which was a relief since I worried where I only worked weekends, it would be hard for me to retain all the information from one weekend to the next but it hasn't been hard.
Anyway, the extra I am making should definitely get us a lot closer to buying that future house and I still manage to get violin practice almost every morning, take care of the animals and even get in some crocheting now and then...haven't worked the cakes in yet but I am sure I will eventually.
