Update on the Insanity That is Me....

....so today was a long-ass day. 15 hours, to be exact. Yes, I need to learn the word "no." Do they provide training in that?

....for those of you who've I've not told already, I hired the teenage girl from next door to come and help me (and be my friend) ten hours a week. I shall let you know how we do with this.

....for the moment, I thought that the only person looking to hire me was Applebees', but I got two new prospects today...and still might keep Applebees' in mind if I get the first of these prospects. A woman called me today to see how many kids I take. I told her too many, and that I didn't know what I was going to do about getting out of the daycare business and into the working world. Well, she's looking for someone to come into her home and care for her two children, who, are younger than the twins, but this could be a good thing for me. Especially since I would make over half of what I need to survive. And, this would all take place over three days of the week instead of five, which would leave me to persue things like a push-up bra and a waitressing job at Applebees'.

...the second option is to interview for a place called Bankers Life. I'm not so sure how I would do with a job in insurance, but we shall see. I've not even investigated what position they would like for me to do. So I shall call them tomorrow and see what's up there.

Wish me luck!

And, Katie....two days!!! :D

Ooh, I like the nanny idea - that would be so much better than the craziness you have to deal with now. Plus, it's someone else's house - when the work day is done, you get to LEAVE. I think it would do you a great deal of good to be able to separate work from home like that. GO FOR IT :-) You go girl!
