I'm a part time working mom now

So it's kind of weird to think about, but I am no longer a 100% stay at home mom. I was proud to have that title, but oh well, it's not a big change.

I got a part time job. It's really part time though, it will be like 10 hours a week.

I wasn't even looking and Dan was talking to a co-worker about how his girlfriend is a manager at a coffee stand and that he's had to help her out and work there a bunch because they are short on people. Dan thought it would be a good job for his sister who is moving back home soon. When he told me about it, I thought it would be fun to have a part time job and I could do it till she moved back (which isn't for another month). Then we heard that they hired someone, so they didn't need anyone anymore. So I thought it was done and just thought oh well. Then the manager called and wanted to meet me because they do still need someone. So I met her and did an interview and got the job. It's nice getting a job so easy in this economy right now! So I'm working part time at the coffee stand. I started last week. Dan and his mom watch Jackson while I'm at work. I just finished 'training' so this next week I'll be on my own. I didn't need much training, more of a refresher and learning their specific ways because I worked at another coffee stand like 6 years ago.

I like it though. It's fun making the drinks and talking with people. The customers are pretty nice and the tips are for sure nice too. It's good to get out of the house too. And it's nice that it's an easy job that I don't have to take work home or stress about stuff.
