So 2 years ago next week will be my “anniversary” of my last day working for someone else.
I was fired unceremoniously on some very unsubstantiated claims that I had physically assaulted a coworker (I don’t assault people. I just berate them verbally) and seeing as how I was 2 months pregnant and vomiting copiously every 15 minutes, I didn’t put up much of a fight. I just took my rather generous severance check, and went home to pack up my things and move in with Chef.
ANYWAY. Point being, fast forward almost 2 years to this moment, where I just realized I’m working three jobs. I’m my own boss in all of them, but damn. I’m a slave driver and kind of a bitch. 🙂
(I actually have 4 jobs if you count being Chuck and Short Stack’s mom…and if you do count that, please inform someone I need health insurance and to collect some back pay.)
I am a licensed massage therapist in the state of Washington, and I do house calls so I don’t have to pay for office space. I don’t have a big enough client base to warrant obtaining office space, and I don’t want to kill my body doing massage. I have 2-3 clients a week, which pays my cell phone bill and puts Chuck in cute shoes.
I am also the baker/owner for Mia Cupcake’s, (watch this space for a SUPER EXCITING deal coming tomorrow, BTW!) but we haven’t been trying to gather clients as much, due to my pending medical procedure. (I’d hate to leave Chef in the kitchen with a whole mess of orders while I yell at him from the bedroom or the couch 🙂
And now I sell Pampered Chef products. I had to think long and hard about this one because I had failed miserably at several other direct sales and I didn’t feel like wasting money on something stupid. But I love it. It’s exciting for me and having Chef for a tester/helper doesn’t hurt either 🙂
So in conclusion, I need to lighten up on myself and possibly work a little harder so my boss doesn’t get so mad. 🙂
