job news, sort of. :)

As many of you know, I have been working full-time at a locally-owned, high-end kitchenwares store since November or so, to make ends meet during the holidays and to avoid looking for something more permanent. As my temporary status will wear off in a couple of weeks, I had started the search again . . . only to be presented with a possibility from my current employer! My store manager offered me 32 hours a week on the sales floor, plus as much independent contracting work as a server upstairs in our cooking school and event center as I want (which pays better than the sales associate work,) and also offered me one more exciting possibility: they are looking for an editor for their newsletter! I don't have that job yet, because I need to prep a writing sample on a topic they have not yet given me, but it's sure exciting. I'd love to get paid to do food writing! :) I have to say, it's really nice working someplace where my presence is valued, and they are excited to have me around for the long term. Novel concept, eh?

Speaking of work . . . I should probably finish up my lunch and head over there right about now! Later, skaters.
