Slowly but Surely

I have been making some progress. I feel so slow on this thing! I worked on it most of yesterday and part of the day before. I want to do some stitching every night when I get home from work, but a lot of nights I am so tired I can't see straight. Tonight we had a meeting after the store closed (at 6 PM) I got home at 7:30 or so and figured I would just vege out instead of stitching. We had to do some training at work for the meeting. Stuff I thought I would never want to do, because it seemed so complicated. I think the hardest thing is cutting and threading pipe, and now I want to learn it better. The best thing is, that the more we learn, the higher our wages can become. (Of course, I know that is the same for most companies) I now know how to cut shades, blinds will be next, I learned how to cut glass, and of course the pipe stuff. Can't wait for my training to be signed off, so I can see how much more valuable I am to them.

I applied for a Merchandise Sales Rep position. They sent me, via email, some quick questions to see if I further fit into what they are looking for. The position is going to take a little more commuting than I like, but they have flexible scheduling four days a week and I can go in before all the traffic starts, so the commute would be only about 45 minutes. I asked for a lot more money than I am making now. I figure since this new position requires some traveling overnight, it should pay more. We'll see. It's not like I don't have any income now and have a desparation going on...if I get it, it's a plus, if not, I'll try somewhere else. It's totally out of my comfort zone, but something I can do. We'll see...

Hi there. Good luck w/the job. "comfort zone" doesn't really count when it comes to desperation, does it? I've been there, I know. (kids don't really go thru school saying 'I wanna grow up to be a cab driver mom!')

Anyway, the going rate for cabbing here in Ptld is 2.50 to get in the car and 2.10/mile. Plus tip o' course. :o) Rates are different around the country tho.

Good luck!

I think it's safe to say that after 30 years, you are definitely not rushing your choice! Thanks for looking.
