Serendipity

Starting next week I am no longer FUNemployed -- I've secured myself a wonderful gig working for one of my favorite mom-centric brands! It's part-time, I choose my own hours, and I get to work from home! But I already know that it's not going to feel like work. You know that adage, "Find a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life"? That's gonna be me, I just know it!

While I've always been careful not to reveal my past employers on my wee blog, I have a feeling that it won't be too long before I tell you who is putting food on the table 'cuz it's a brand that all moms, moms-to-be, and gift-givers should know about. (And there are plenty of folks beyond those groups who could find the products useful, too.)

I'm trying to firm up some daycare plans for Em because her previous daycare is next to my old office and sadly geographically undesirable. I'm looking for something nearby, but it's hard because the old place set the bar so high. It was immaculate, the price was right and she was so great with Em. I'm sure there's a place out there -- it's just a matter of finding it.
