Job

Yesterday, I took some of my recent scrapbooking layouts to my lss, along with my completed application and a recommendation letter from my prior boss in Savannah. (thanks, Jamie...for the glowing recommendation!) The women seemed impressed with my work, but it still seemed that there was no job available. (apparently, they have very low turnover)

I'm ok with that, I just want them to have me in mind in case something comes up.

I am pretty confident about what I can offer them. I am hard working. I am honest. I am energetic. I am loyal. I would be a great addition to their store.

I don't claim to be perfect, but I try hard. I don't claim to be the best scrapbooker out there, but certainly I have talent in my own way. I love scrapbooking, it's my therapy, it's my passion... I love teaching people about my love for scrapbooking and that makes me perfect to work at the local scrapbooking store. (lss, for those who didn't catch that)

Fast forward to this morning, when the phone rings and they want to confirm my availability. We discuss possible work options and she thanks me for my time, adding they may be talking to me soon.

Then, this afternoon, they call back, asking when I can come in to talk to them. They even offer I can bring my 2 youngest children with me to the interview (because they know I have no family/friends in town) and that the store workers will watch them while we talk. How nice is that?!

So, they wanted to do it tomorrow, but all 4 kids are home....there is no school for L and J. So, I go on Monday....

Wish me luck!!!!
