I have never applied for a job, I did not have at the end of the day...
Which is pretty common as a nurse, waitress, bartender, and other various jobs I have had.
Here is where the problem lies. I have to get a job, and pretend I am a single Mother...
Why? DH is gone A LOT.
I cannot rely on him to drop off children at school, or to pick them up.
With nursing jobs, this can be rough.
Most nursing jobs are 6am-2:30, 3-11pm, 11-7am. Or the dreaded 12 hour shift 6am-6pm, or 6pm-6am. Unless I want to make $9 an hour, which frankly would not be worth my time, and most of those jobs start at 9am.... that is right when I am dropping SR off at school.
There are also NO snow days in the medical field. They will find a way to come to your home and get you there. There is also not a large allotment of sick days. They also need nurses on Holidays, and weekends.....
See the conundrum?
PN is ready for school, she is social and is longing for a "pre-school". She is a bright 4 year old, and is ready. I feel as though I owe her to not be bored with good ole Mom any longer. I tried. But frankly she is READY. In fact I am sure she is ready for kindergarten, but cannot enter because of her birth date.
I was actually looking at picking up a lunch shift at a restaurant down the road. I figured, I could live on tips for a while.
And then I got answers yesterday.....
It seems there is a nanny in the neighborhood. She is retired, and widowed and looking for some extra $.
ahhhh....relief. I was relieved, even though I have not spoke with her yet. I have a few things to clear up first.
#1. get my hands on contact hours complete.
#2. take the two job offers into consideration and pick.
It is sort of spooky to go back to work after this amount of time...
