New Job

Yesterday I completed my second weekend of work at my new part-time job at The Children's Place Outlet Store in Hershey, PA. When Dave was moved back to first shift, I prayed about the possibility of working part-time to help offset some of the boys' schooling expenses and our adoption expenses, and the Lord led me to The Children's Place through a church friend who also works there. I'm finding it to be harder than it looks, especially physically, since I'm on my feet for 4-8 hours at a time, depending on the shift; however, it is fun, and I'm meeting lots of interesting people. So far I have been working less than 15 hours a week, mostly on the weekends, but some weeknights. Of course I'm awfully tempted to use my paycheck at the store, since I love their clothes and get a 30% discount, but so far I've been good. I really watch for bargains (like the pair of jeans I scored for Sabastian for 69 cents!) but that's it. If I knew how big our little Sophia was going to be, I'd really be having fun...the girl's clothes are so cute and reasonably priced on our sales racks! If you ever find yourself in Hershey at the outlets, look me up!

Wow, tempting is right! I asked Mom if you got a discount and she didn't know, but I figured you'd at least have first dibs on the great sales, and that's what I'd call a 69-cent pair of jeans!! Good for you!

It is very tempting isn't it when you get a discount at a store that you work at. I am afraid if I worked at a yarn store or a fabric store that I wouldn't have any of my paycheck left at all!

I've been tempted to get a part-time job too, especially during the holidays. Having access to great deals like that, especially when you need them, could pay off really well!! Take care of yourself... you're doing a lot right now!
