I set a goal last month to have all my credit card debt paid off before Tim retires in May, so I put on my wish board: gainful employment… and low and behold a great part-time job dropped right in my lap!
You are now talking to an operator at a general insurance service.
My hours range from 15-25 a week and the pay is really great! With those kinds of hours I can do my artwork and have plenty of time to take long walks with the dog! I’m really thrilled.
I never pictured myself as an operator! It’s been one of the jobs on my ‘never take’ employment list, but it turns out it’s fun (at least at this company). It’s like performing… and I can do that! I chuckle though since my idea of an operator was shaped by the classic character Ernestine created by Lily Tomlin.
How’s my Ernestine impression?
For those of you who don’t know Lily Tomlin as Ernestine, here’s one of her classic sketches…
What fun to have employment I enjoy, yet have time to continue to pursue my creative expression. The only thing that I won’t be able to do is blog more than once or twice a week. But hey! Enough is as good as a feast right? And when I retire for good, I can post up a storm! 😉 Don’t worry the one post I will continue every week is my random moments of delight since I love hearing yours!
