Still Not Dead
Once again, there has been a spell of not posting that stretched to months (after I told myself I’d post once or twice a week). My apologies to anyone who was concerned about my health and well being. This was simply a case of ‘life gets in the way’.
Changes Have Come
My part time gone has evaporated. The company I worked for (Cosi) has decided to close the location I worked in. This is a serious disappointment.
My Mother-in-Law and I have really stopped working on the Etsy store. This is a bit sad but really not a surprise. We had very different ideas about what we wanted to do with the store, and how to manage being in business together. It pretty much withered away from neglect.
Changes in the Future
So right now I’m looking for another job. I’d accept another part time and/or retail gig as long as it was very close (preferably within walking distance), but I really need a full time position which pays a ‘grown up’ salary. I’m concentrating in administration and customer service positions, but if anyone knows of a job in the Baltimore-Washington corridor which might be hiring and which I might be qualified for, please let me know.
I’ve also been thinking about why the Etsy shop didn’t work. I was concerned about potential problems from the beginning, and I didn’t fully commit. If I had the right partner (or partners), it would be easier to get behind it. At least someone who has the organizational skills I am weak in and who sees the value in a written agreement.
So that’s what I’m musing about. Next post should come soon, and will be more in the ‘what I’ve been knitting’ line. There’s some good stuff.
