...for a new job. Not by choice - the company I work for (and absolutely LOVE!) is being bought by a larger company that has no need for most of us. So I'm losing one of the best jobs I've ever had. When you talk about a family friendly place to work - this was it. The hours were perfect, the people were great, and they understood the concept of family first.
Not to mention the casualness of the place - Today I'm wearing denim Bermuda shorts, a linen blouse and my beloved flip flops. I just know that wherever I end up will require real footwear...
Then again, as I mentioned to Lucky, if I found a great job close to home with great hours and people, I'd wear a bloody ball gown to work every day!
So now, during summer, I have to go on the job hunt. We're looking at the trade off of me finding something right away, vs. spending the summer with the boy. Financial needs may take over, but we'll see. I'm still waiting to get the final say at the present job - how long (if at all) they need me during the transition - plus what kind of package there is. It's still up in the air while they iron out the final sale details, but we hope to find out soon.
Knitting is becoming not only my hobby but my stress reducer. I laugh at the people who say "Maybe you can make a living with knitting!" Right. I'm just a knitter. I know lots of people who have taken knitting and it's peripherals and made a living (Stephanie...) but she's a writer among so many other things. I just knit, and no one I know will pay the true worth of a hand knit sweater. If those people were out there, a lot of us would be making a living knitting for them!
