Postcard Stamp, And... I Got A Job!!

I recently got a new rubber stamp (I don't know why, I didn't go out looking for one..) My husband gave me some money and said "Why don't you go to Hobby Lobby?"  I did. But I couldn't find anything I wanted or needed. (Can you believe it?) I guess I just wasn't in the mood to shop. (I haven't been, lately).  Anyway I was looking at all the rubber stamps to see if I could find anything I liked. Then I saw a stamp to make your own postcards. I wasn't going to get it, but I thought; "If I don't, I bet I will regret not getting it.."   Funny thing is, Eon made postcards with the stamp before I have even used it. :P  (He cracks me up.)  He was home from school again yesterday because he wasn't feeling good. He sounded congested and like he was getting a cold (I think it might be his allergies, too). And he hit his head at school on Thursday. He said his head hurt so I gave him the ice pack and some tylenol..  Anyway he still didn't feel good Friday so I let him stay home...  And he made some postcards. The palm tree and the coffee (to go) cup and words are stamps and he drew the backgrounds. He said "I'm going to start my own post card business." Lol  I asked him if I could buy his coffee cup one. He said "Sure. $100."  Lol! I think we are going to have to give him a reality check. ;) 

Here's the back, and what the stamp looks like.  The top one got a little messed up. He was mad about that (did I mention what a perfectionist he is about some things? I wish he was like that about his homework/school...)  Anyway. He tried so hard (he stamped about five stamps.. then the front of the postcard, too. So he did pretty good!) to get them all right.  He has been doing melty beads, lately. But the latest project he is working on, he needs more beads for. And he didn't want to try a different one. He wanted to do "Art".  :P

And, guess what?.. I got a job!!! :D  (Finally!!)  I had been applying for this certain job forever. It kept coming back up on the site, and I would apply again... Well on Wednesday afternoon she called me (I didn't know what the number was at first), and asked if I could come in for another interview (she already interviewed me once, in December last year).  I said Yes! Then yesterday she called me and said she wants to hire me!  I am not sure if I am supposed to say on "social media" where I am working..  But.. it is part time. Mon-Fri. It will be good for me I think. I didn't think anyone would hire me. No one would even call back after I applied, anywhere. I even went to the Career Center in town to get my resume re-done and see if I could take any classes. (They still haven't called me about my resume, yet; either..) It has been six and a half years since I have had a job.  I was thinking I am just outdated, no skills.. No one will hire me. Maybe I should just go be a waitress again. :(  I even had Eli help me (um, do it for me..) make a flyer to clean houses again.  I really didn't know if I could do that again, though..    So...  I hope I will do good at this job. :)  Really don't have the confidence in myself that I used to.

Man, do I know the no confidence thing after not working for so long :(

Good luck in the new job. You will feel SO MUCH BETTER having some "pocket change" of your own.

Thank you, Paula. I don't know how much extra pocket change I will have, but maybe we will finally break even; after a while. :)
