Working

I should have a few new knitting things to show this weekend.

I am now gainfully employed again. I collected unemployment for two weeks - the first time ever in my whole life! I started working when I was 12 years old for "the donut lady". Mrs Randolph. She lived a short bike ride up the road. She made fresh donuts in her kitchen every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning. The whole community waited for those days. Anyway, she asked if I wanted to work for her...I was so excited because I loved to bake....so I get to her house on a Monday after school...what does she want me to do? MOP HER FLOORS! Yep! The white tile kitchen floor where the donuts were made. On Monday after she baked in there all weekend. Murphy's oil soap to wash. Then get clean water and do a rinse, and then go over the whole thing with a WHITE towel to make sure got it all.....and that's how my career of mopping up after other people began.................

ha ha ha! Have a wonderful day!

Congrats! I hope you enjoy your new job.

So, what is your new job?

The mopping thing made me smile, because I did something similiar in college. Cleaning the floors (sometimes with a toothbrush, sometimes it should have taken sandpaper) in a small bakery. I wasn't terribly heartbroken when I had to quit that job...

Congratulations - nothing worse than feeling all betwix & between.

MMMMM - donuts. And I also love the smell of Murphy's Oil Soap.
