About Me

My photo
Concord, California, United States
I am a sometimes-writer, everyday mama, creative failure and experimental cook. I am interested in living a beautiful life, spending time with my family and making things that I can feel proud of. When I'm by myself I'm usually outside. Don't bother calling because chances are that I didn't bring my cell phone because I couldn't find it. If you see me walking, it's because I lost my keys and if you see me with only one child... I'm probably in big trouble.

Hitting the Pavement

I hit the Philly pavement today to find a job! I don't need much or many hours. I just need SOMETHING. From now until December I'll put everything away so that I am able to ensure that my girls have a great Christmas. After Christmas I'll work to help chip away at the damage created by our recent crisis.

I targeted bakeries because... well, I love baking. My ability to bake is one of the things in life that I'm particularly confident in. That said, I didn't find much. Most bakeries are only hiring for cake decorators. This is something that I'd love to do but am not experienced in. I've worked as a cookie designer, but never a cake decorator.

I went into the Big Green Earth Store and really liked the manager there. He told me to send my resume in tonight. I told him that my resume is superiorly unimpressive because I've been a stay at home mom for the past seven years. He responded really well to this and made me feel incredibly comfortable. Given my love for green, low-impact living, this seems like the kind of place where I could thrive.

Cross your fingers for me!


  1. I know! I sent my resume in last night! Keep your fingers crossed... I really would love working at this shop. It's incredible. I mean, I'd do anything right now... but working somewhere that I LIKE would be a huge bonus!

  2. YaY! good for you! i am glad that the manager responded positively, that is a good sign right there =)

    and drat! i was hoping to help you with your resume =/ I wanted to remind you (if you didn't already) to include all your blogging, especially um, the one i can't remember the name of, where you reviewed green stuff. if you need any help with a resume, let me know, i consider myself a pro ;) lol

    good luck <3
