The bad has a little good attached.


The good: The newspaper did finally call, and I had a great interview, and I think I would have had the job.

The bad: Unfortunately, it was only part-time and paid less than it would have been worth since I have to pay for daycare. *sigh* 

The other good: She did say she wanted to contact me after the first of the year to talk about possible freelance opportunities. Yay!

Today I interviewed for another job with the paper as a fundraiser for a program called Newspapers in Education. It’s also part-time, 25-30 hours a week, and pays minimum wage + commission. The woman who had the position before made $22K last year. So, for part-time that’s not too bad…

The great interview with the art center hasn’t amounted to anything yet. Figures, right? Meanwhile Christmas is around the corner.

More good: I have sold 7 of my Snowfolk!!! I sold the last three I posted within a few days to a woman in the UK. I’m really happy that they are finally selling – it’s a nice validation.

More bad: The payments for my Snowfolk are coming through paypal, and since hubby has already associated our bank account with his paypal account, I can’t retrieve my payments for my items. Good grief.

It’s only Monday, right? The week could get better.

About Laurie

I have too many hobbies, but have finally learned (sort of) how to focus on one at a time and stifle my desire to add more. ;) I'm a mom, a wife, a writer, an artist, a seamstress, a gardener, a backyard-chicken farmer, a fundraiser, a movie-lover, a book hoarder, a junker, a thrift-store-shopper... I also love to laugh, make people happy, and take road trips. Some of these things make it into blog posts. I'm almost 50 and I'm still able to sleep through the night. I consider that a success.

  1. Laurie darling
    Open another bank account. A “business” account maybe, that takes in everything “business” related, and is linked to your Paypal. It costs nothing to open a basic checking and/or savings account. And frankly, it’s my opinion that hubbys and wifeys should have separate accounts anyway.
    Second, Elliot adores her Snowfolk. It’s name is Ladida and she plays with her other dolls nicely. “Won’t Elizabeth (other doll) be surprised when she meets Ladida?”

  2. well, duh! I already knew that was an option Mr. Smartypants – I just didn’t want to DO it. I wanted to put the money in the bank and use it to pay bills. However, Hubby is thinking we should have separate accounts too (apparently the sister-in-law does this) so I guess this is one more step in that direction. My experience with that kind of thing with the ex was not good. But this would not be the same, so I need to quit being difficult…
