About Me

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.

My Big Green Earth Job

I'm super excited!

I didn't want to say anything earlier, but I had a job interview this afternoon with the Big Green Earth Store and I got it!

This is a very small business. It's actually a crazy-cute little shop on the hippest strip of South Street. I didn't think that I had any hope of getting a job here because of my crappy resume (which the owner told me he liked a lot)! I'm ridiculously excited and enthusiastic!

They are opening a new shop in the business district of Center City and I'm going to be setting up and working in that shop. I'm also going to be writing for them!!!! It's a small company so the pay isn't great, but I don't honestly care and I doubt that Jay cares either. This isn't our primary income and it looks like a wonderful place to work. I can tell that I'll enjoy going in each day and I'd much rather work for a small business than a large one. The best part is that I will be able to start work after I drop the girls off at school and leave before picking them up each day. I will need to sacrifice some weekends with my family, but themsthebreaks. It will be more time with their dad, which I'm sure they'll all love anyway.


I feel like maybe my luck is turning around!


  1. I am so happy that you've found something that you will enjoy! I mean, I know it's just a retail job, but at least it's with a company you can feel good about working for!

  2. Yeh, I like this company and I think that I'll like the job too. I feel like a retail job meets my needs perfectly. After all, what I really wanted to do was have a job that respects my parenting- where I can go to work after dropping the girls off of at school and leave before picking them up. Where I won't be held up or come home with work that detracts from my family life. I want to be able to sit down at the table and do homework with my kids everyday and put some time and effort into a dinner.

    I have to say, the people who I've met from this shop seem great and I think that going to work each day will be fun.

  3. Awesome!!! I'm so glad you got the job and it seems like a perfect fit for you!

  4. Yay!!!

    Congratulations! It sounds like it's right down your alley!
