My New Job

I mentioned yesterday that I was starting a new job next Monday.  You know, one of the reasons I needed all those new clothes.  Ahem.  Anyway, I quit working at the gym a few months ago now, for a few different reasons.  The main one being that when I was hired, I agreed to work two nights a week.  Well, they had two managers and some employees quit, leaving a ton of open shifts.  Some of these shifts were being assigned and I just wasn't willing to give up all that family time.  I was working there as a way to get out of the house a couple nights a week, but it was getting to be more stress than it was worth.

I started looking at part time jobs again, but wasn't really having much luck with things I wanted to do and the schedules.  I still want to be home with the kids the majority of the time.  I just need a little "mental break" once in awhile to keep my brain busy and distracted.  Luckily for me, my brother started his own business a few years ago and said he had some work for me!  It couldn't be more perfect and I am beyond excited!

I am going to start out just working one full day and one half day a week.  I'm going to be doing a variety of things, but mainly testing new features before they go live and research projects.  Basically whatever my brother tells me to do!

I know it probably seems silly to some people, but I am really excited.  I'm looking forward to having somewhere to be and something to keep my mind busy for a few hours.  Luckily some sweet family members are helping out with the kids this summer so they will get to be in the comfort of their own home with familiar faces.

I'm very thankful for my brother giving me this opportunity and for my mom and soon to be sister-in-law for watching the kids!


  1. Exciting! Sounds like the perfect job for getting out a little bit :-) Good luck!

  2. I am so jealous! Sounds like a perfect opportunity for you & you can be comfortable knowing your kids are with family. I'm still looking for something too. Although after the long weekend home alone I threatened to find a full time job! I like to talk big, lol.

  3. Congrats!! That sounds perfect! I've always said maybe I would go back part time if anything, this will be a great break for you!

  4. This sounds perfect, Amy! I love how it all worked out. Congrats on the new job; hopefully the boss is good to work for! ;)

  5. Yay, congrats Amy that is awesome! Sorry I'm so behind :)
