Second Job Didn't Pan Out

United States
February 11, 2016 7:35pm CST
Got a message from my cousin today. The job I was going to do part-time is not happening. The lady decided she doesn't need anyone to do her shopping. Although I am a little disappointed not to be able to have the much needed income, I am delighted that I can relax and enjoy my day off. I will be spending the day with my daughter. Grocery shopping and maybe a thrift shop is on the agenda.

If I don't, it's all good. Everything happens for a reason.

@ScribbledAdNauseum we had one that went belly up about a year ago. There are a lot of people who do this kind of work in our town. Guess it was not meant to be at this time.

My daughter had to cancel because my granddaughter has the croup. I did enjoy my day though.

@DWDavis me too. This is the first time she has been sick. I don't like to see her down for the count.

It's good that you're not too disappointed about it. Maybe something else will turn up soon.

If something else doesn't come along, I will start knitting hats again. My daughter started an Etsy account and will be selling my items there.

@JudyEv Yes, we are following one another. He wished me luck as well. I know that I haven't had much luck with sales this year locally, so hoping that if I branch out I'll have more success.

Quite a combination of regret and relief. I have had times like that. You probably need some free time.

I do need that one day to breathe. Fridays are my only day off.

Having a day with my daughter is worth more than money.

I am happy actually. I wasn't certain I really wanted to give up my only day off.

@ElusiveButterfly I can understand that! I know even though I need the money I don't know if I could give my 1 day off.

Were you going to be a personal shopper?

Yes, but the lady decided that she didn't want to have it done for her.

You are probably right. I believe she was the one that was asking about hiring someone.

The grocery shopping is a great thing and the thrift store is also a big best thing.
