My new job ... somewhat

Well, I have a job for this week. I am subbing for a guy this week. He will be back next week and then if I want the job I can take it from there. I am picking up and delivering dentures at dentists offices ( I don't have to touch anything, thankfully). James is still trying to think over this job and decide if he agrees that I should take it permanently. It's only part time- 20 hours a week, mon-thurs. I think it's the greatest job already and I am only on my second day. I get paid for 5 hours a day whether I work it or not. My hours are 9-11 and 2-5. So I get a 3 hour lunch break. I call into the office in the morning and get the dentists that need pickups. I go to those offices and pickup the orders and then take them back to our office. Then I am done for the morning. Then at 2, I call the office to see if there's anything that needs to be delivered or picked up. And that's all. Yesterday, I had one pickup in the morning, which took 30 minutes and then in the afternoon, I had 2 pickups, which took and hour and a half. So I worked a total of 2 hours, but still got paid for 5. Wohoo!! My kind of job! The main reason I want to hold on to this job is because my boss has told me that once I have kids I can bring them with me since I don't have to do a whole lot. We have always planned on me being a stay at home mom, but with this opportunity I think I can handle working a few hours a day with a little one.

Good for you! That sounds like a great job!!! I don't know if I'll be lucky enough to find another dream job, so it looks like I'll be back in a workplace soon.

That's an awesome job! Yay for you!! I was hoping that's what my newspaper job would be, because I could leave the kids with Jim and go work for 2ish hours. No such luck though, it's hell on my car :( and I'm just too tired. Yours sounds so much better, I've always wanted to be a courier :(

Sounds like an awesome job! I'm jealous. I guess I can't be too jealous though since i don't have to work...I just get to be my hubby's lil follower. He travels a lot with his job all over cali. Luckily I get to go with him or I would only have a husband about a week total each month. We just live the good "suite" life in hotels. As long as we're together, that's all that matters. =) We'll see how that goes with a baby...
