Job Wanted


Today I was perusing the classified job section of my newspaper. You see, I have always wondered what I'd do outside the home when my children were grown and gone. There has always been this little carrot dangling in front of my nose just out of reach calling my name. I have no grand illusions to become a business owner or power broker. No ambition to put in a 40 hour work week coming home exhausted at the end of the day ... only to get dinner on the table and keep up with a large home. Just a little part time job to refresh my creative side that has been in the mommy mode for way too long. My part time job would have to be conducive to the school calendar ... and, of course, I'd like my annual vacation. I was thinking of working in a floral shop. I can see myself putting together beautiful arrangements, making corsages, spritzing the blooms with water, twisting green tape and sticks to the ends of flowers. Just think of the rush at Valentine's and Mother's Day. Ohh, I can hardly wait.

These are my skills:

Works best under pressure
tidy
good phone manners
fast learner
types and takes dictation well
good driving record
honest to a fault
sense of humor at times
light nursing skills
great cook
survived the winter of '07/08 without my husband's help

Anyone with a job lead, just leave a comment.

After reading your qualifications, I think you'd do well as a para-pro in a school.

Pat said...

You forgot to add your skills as a photographer!
There isn't anything you couldn't do well, so the opportunities are wide open, problem is, if your working, you may not be available for that 'girl trip' when it comes up...eh?!

Amrita said...

Oh Mrs Mac you have an excellent CV Who wouldn 't want to hire you.If you came here people would fight for you.

I love to work in a book shop.

A florist is also very attrective, all those blooms and fragrances.

You might try driving down to Fruitland,you just might find a job here. I did, I'm pricing groceries in my daughter's "economy friendly,"
"Bent and Dent" store where you can buy cereal for a dollar a box. If you don't mind crumpled boxes, the inside package is sealed and perfect. My pay isn't much, but the munchies are good. Like fruit drops, chips, pretzels, easy cheese, diet bars, gatorade, candy and pickles of all kinds.:-) You might visit gramma_s in the meantime. :-)
