Transitory Employment

I start a new job today, at this place. I'm pretty excited, aside from some extra cash - which we need to move our junk halfway across the country - I kind of like waiting tables, never mind that I swore I was done with it forever! There's nothing like the draw of a few extra hundred bucks a week to suck me right back in.

But. It's the opposite of the work that I do from home: it gets me out of the house for one thing, alone, and it's social, I get to talk to people, and be funny and engaging, which, even when I do it at home (which I totally do all the time, right honey?) it's not the same. Also, I get to dress nice, which is kind of fun since all I usually wear is jeans and t-shirts.

Another perk? It's only for three months, which means I won't have time to get totally bored and fed up with all the tourists who think they're better than me.

Can you tell I have mixed feelings about the whole enterprise? Wish me luck, I'll let you know how it goes.

I am SOOO jealous of you at the moment. A temporary part time job interacting with people. Sounds like heaven from where I'm at! I hope you enjoy it!

Hooray for working! You'll have to let us know how it goes. And the restaurant looks yummy. Too bad I'm too far away to have you wait on me.

That sounds like fun! Just getting out of the house and interacting with big people is a novelty in itself, right?
