You know, working full time and having a baby can really get in the way of one's blogging.
Yep! Powell's offered me full time and I jumped at the chance. We are having some adjustment issues at home, but I think this is all for the best. After the mess that the business left us in, I simply must work. Lucky for me, I LOVE my job and look forward to going to work every single day.
Ashley and I are not able to see much of each other these days. I work at night and during his weekend, he works during the day and during my weekend. The upside of this arrangement is that one of us is almost always with Elinor. The downside is that I didn't recognize him the other night when her walked out of the bathroom and I thought I was being burgled. Then I thought, "Oh! Ha! That's my husband!"
My job consists of cashiering (fine), shelving (nice), sections work (can't WAIT for that to start) and talking to people about books (the bomb). Powell's is categorized into about a gazillion sections because it is so large, and then particular people are in charge of the maintanance of each section. I hope to find out in the next couple of days which sections will be mine. Hoorah!
In terms of making stuff? Yeah, I haven't quite figured out how to fit that in. I must, though, because it is one of the major things that keeps me going. With a baby who is running all over the place, hungry (for food AND attention) all the time, and just fun to be with, it's not easy to fit anything else in. I know we'll figure it all out. I know we will because we have to.
I've come up with a blog project that I can incorporate with work to some extent. This blog is important to me, and though it is another thing that I need to work to find time for, I will. As soon as I finetune the details of some of the projects I want to do here, I'll create a schedule I can work with. Elinor, for her part, seems to think it is slightly less devestating when I'm looking at the computer and not at her, so that's a start!
