Am thinking i want to get a job... Lol.. Not sure what the heck I want to do. All i know is i am pretty unchallenged (ok, when i thk about sam... He is pretty challenging) but i want Smething to do when he is at school from 8:30 -3:30. I want to be able to hit the gym... And i need to be here when he gets off the bus...
So im looking for something to do from 10:00am- 2:30. M-F no nights.
Any ideas?
Am i asking the impossible? Lol

I have a masters in graphic design and undregrad in english lit. (both pretty useless) ha!

I honestly dont think i could do much with graphics at this point. My background is Architectural renderings... And most of that is very deadline oreinted with last minute scrambles to meet deadlines due to building changes... So it is like perfect cor 80% of project but then annoying as all hell for last 20%. ( when the clock is ticking!)

Suggestions? Ideas welcome. What kind of job works 10-2? lol

lunch ladies...LOL. Or food service of some kind for the lunch hour. I know that's probably not what you have in mind!!! Just the hours you know. I am looking too. I need nights though and I'm not working at a gas station!

Grocery store? Stocking shelves at night?

night jobs at grocery stores are hard to come by, even toysrus its hard to get a night job and I don't want to work at walmart. My DH's schedule is so all over the place it's hard for me to get a job around that and it makes no sense to pay a sitter...so it's tough.

thanks Jen... I checked out my Gyms website and they are looking for someone in their marketing department. It is full time--(blech!)  but I shot out an email asking if I could get some imore nfo about the position, a breif summary of my background and how much I love my gym!!! hope to hear back from them after the weekend. Maybe they dont need someone full time... maybe only 30 hours (which I could make work!) or maybe even get a sitter for Sam 2 afternoons... and be home with him the other 3 afternoons... something... Im a pretty GO and GET IT DONE kinda girl... so maybe this will work. It has to workfor all involved.. then again maybe not! (dont want to get my hopes up!)  LOL..

That was my thought too. Not challenging though.

How about freelancing with graphic design? I'd totally use your services and pass your info along! :)

Only places I can think of that offer school bus hours are grocery stores and that is far from challeging and IMO, you're way above that.
