So, in some misguided attempt to prepare for a job I thought I might like to do in retirement, I took a second job.
5 Reasons I'm Grateful I'm Now Working a Second Job
2. It's making me appreciative. Suddenly, Job 1's perks look a lot perkier.
3. Lack of boredom or insomnia. Working 7 days a week means never having to wonder what to do with all that pesky free time. Sometimes I fall asleep in the middle of a sent
4. I don't take my husband for granted.* Sometimes I get to see Hubs for a few hours and it's quite delightful! No, really! I still remember what he looks like so I can pick him out in a crowd. So, you know... that's nice.
5. Extra cash. I didn't take this job for the money, and it's a good thing since the pay stinks, but on top of Job 1's salary, it's really nice to get a second paycheck. PLUS, I'm making commissions and I even got a holiday bonus for the first time EVAH! Ca-ching!
On the downside, it means I don't get to hang out with my friends much and blogging has evaporated. I miss them. And it. And you. But, in about a month, I'll stop working Sundays and maybe get to luxuriate in activities like doing laundry.
Which brings us to the question du jour: Fabric softener: Manna from heaven or the devil's plaything? Discuss.
Wishing you a joyful 2012,
