Back to work

Posted in Journal, Max's World, What's for Dinner at 9:49 pm by Jenn

Well, it looks like my vacation is about to end.  Scott brought home a vacancy announcement for a position that I said I would accept.  I guess that means I’ll be returning to work in the new year.  It’s not nutrition related, but it’s good money and it’s part time so I’ll still have plenty of free time for knitting, blogging and all the other projects I’ve seemed to accumulate recently.  Besides, a little cash in the pocket will be a good thing to support my new swapping habit.  I’ll complete the application this weekend, turn it in sometime next week and then just wait to find out when I start.

 Max is going to be sad when I go back to work.  He is my little shadow during the day.  Every move I make he is right there with me.  He really has mellowed out a lot since we’ve been in Belarus. 

Tonight’s dinner, chili w/cheese and cornbread! YUM.  All locally purchased ingredients and better than I ever made in the states.

    Phew! Thank goodness it’s only part-time. We can’t have employment interfere with your more important work.

    Hey – did I know about this? What will you be doing? Chili w/cheese sounds yummy!

    Congrats on the job. That’s great news – I hope you enjoy it.

    I have been trying to figure out these swapping blogs – the hot cocoa one sounds interesting but the Harry Potter one is way to complicated for my slightly hungover brain.

    I have turned my hand to making British dishes whilst here in the states in the last year. Its a great way to get over cravings! 😀

    Let me know if you are interested in learning more about swapping, I can give you a few pointers and websites to get started. Do you knit or crochet? Of course the knitting and yarn swaps are the ones I join but trust me there is a swap for just about everything.

    I dont knit or crochet I am afraid – I am bloody useless at both!

    The job sounds good. You are not a person to sit with nothing to do-what are you going to be doing and how many hours will you work

    The position is called Community Liason. This person answers questions from people coming and going. Sets up sponsors for newcomers, organizes fun and cultural activities, etc. Of course there is more to it than that, but that’s the short version.

    I’m hoping they will agree to 24 hours.
