New Endeavor

I've been praying for a nice, steady, part time job and I found the most perfect one. As of yesterday, I am one of the Environmental Education Specialists with the City of McKinney. I am so happy about this opportunity. This job couldn't be more perfect; it allows me to get back to my little mission of saving the earth (something I did full time with corporations for 10+ years before becoming a stay at home Mom), it gets me back in a REAL office, its flexible because I can totally set my own hours and it's rewarding (saving trees is kinda my thing). This opportunity has been in the works since before Easter but I got an official offer last week-- and yesterday was my first day. My main focus will be implementing and expanding the recycling efforts of the community. I will be making presentations and spreading the word with HOA's, civic organizations and the local schools. I am absolutely thrilled. I will work full days when DD is at preschool and a half day when she's home (after DH gets home). Don't worry-- I plan to continue as a demonstrator and my work with KitchenAid & Kitchen Consulting since it's been somewhat sporatic with the state of the economy.

It's a tough job....

It's a tough job, but someone has to do it. I am sorry I have not been blogging as regularly. I am in the middle of a big assignment with General Mills. I am baking nine different desserts for them. I've been doing practice runs for the last week and today I am making the final dishes that will be presented at a special buyer's meeting for a major retailer tomorrow. I'll be back with a fun report and some recent stamp projects in the next day or two. The oven timer just went off, gotta get another dish out of the oven! See ya...
