temp job

It isn't quite fall here, even though school already started and we are all ready for cooler weather. Totally ready. It has been the hottest August on record, I think, but I could be making that up.

A friend from church found me a temp job at the company she works for, and I start there on Tuesday. It should run for six weeks, and then if I like it and they like me, I might get to keep it. This is good news. I'm nervous about it, because it is an office job and something new to me. I know a little, and am a quick learner, so I hope it turns out well.

Michaels is going to continue to let me work on Saturdays with an option to come back if them temp thing doesn't work out. The Christmas season will be in full swing in six weeks, so they'll need extra help. My boss has been so great about being flexible with me and I really appreciate it.

Yes, this is a new job and some financial security, which we need. I'm glad for that. It will help me sleep at night, knowing I have somewhere to go everyday and with a more normal schedule. I won't have to work nights anymore and there are a couple people I know that work there, so I will have a couple friends there, at least.

I know this isn't the most exciting update, and I wish I had a more thrilling announcement, but the temp job came along at a good time. I'll let you know more about it after I start on Tuesday.

Enjoy your labor day weekend!

I was hoping you'd have an update for us soon. Good luck with your temp job. Maybe it'll be a good fit? You're smart and a hard worker, I'm sure you'll get the hang of it right away.
Good luck!! Enjoy your weekend.

PS--I'm ready for the cooler weather, too. It's been in the
90's all week. Blech.

I'm glad to hear it. It's always nice to have something on the ol' resume - and a little more in the bank account!
