As per the post the other day, the ex and I are having issues. We like to be a normal couple, so we chose the number one issue in America couples fight over- money. I didn’t realize until then but he was still pissy over the checking account fiasco recently. Which made me pissy, because like I keep telling him, until he hands over his debit card and I control 100% of the spending, I will not be held 100% responsible if something happens. It’s stupid. But anyways….So we start fighting about it AGAIN last night and this morning it turned ugly. Finally I turned around and told him “Fine, I will just go get a job then!” To which he says “Fine!” and I reply “Fine!!”. (Mature? Not so much.)
After lunch I get all dressed up and made up and went out into the world to start the job-hunting process. 2 hours later I returned home, employed. I will be hostessing at Cracker Barrel, just on the weekends, so no worries about finding someone to watch the kids. Needless to say I am insanely excited about this. Not only do I not have to worry about daycare, I get to have time away from my kids every weekend and get PAID for it!! Doesn’t get better than that!
I also got the coolest compliment while I was there. The manager loved me, I don’t say that to brag, she told me how excited she was because she thought I’d do great. I was worried about them even hiring me because I have been a SAHM for so long. I made the comment about “Don’t worry, I am involved in a playgroup and I was room mom at school this year, so I promise I’m not totally lacking in social skills.” She laughed, and says “Even if you’d have said you have no social skills at all, I wouldn’t have believed you. You have a beautiful smile and your personality just sparkles!” Wow! LOL…What do you say to that? I’ve been accused of a lot of things in my time, sparkling was never one of them! 😉
