This thing of finding work is an interesting beast. So many people looking for work, so many things to consider, so many places to look. Today my job hunt (as opposed to capitalJ-ob hunt) took a step forward it seems. Since I have a light load and it's just me working (as in making money. Suzanne's definitely working. Her job is just a little more warm and cuddly and central to a healthy civilization) I been looking for part time work. I may have found it my friends. Should you now take a Mercedes minibus from here to the airport in Chicago there's a 1 in 7 chance I'll be at the helm. I went for a test drive today with a professional truck driver, he said I did a good job, and then I got the call to come in for training. This is a good thing on 3 levels. 1) Good money. 2) I love driving, but coupled with large vehicles it's even better. This is a 22 foot Mercedes I'll be driving, looking out over cars and gently jostling with the bumps on the road as this is such a smooth ride. 3) Suzanne and Amia may be able to come along sometimes since Suzanne will be able to hold her. I also have to check with the company.
I've come to the realization today that nothing is easy or simple with a baby. Nothing. Not making a sandwich. Not watching a movie. Not going to see friends or have dinner/lunch with them or having them over. And definitely not going to Old Navy to look at their baby Halloween costumes. As soon as we got in the store Amia started crying, a loud kind of I'm-in-pain cry that you can't really do anything about. She didn't stop for 20 minutes. That was a little hard, one because you can't really do anything, but also Suzanne and I really needed to get out of the house. We're also trying to figure out how to get to Louhelen for the college club weekend. We're determined that the 3 of us should go, which has been made easier with the littlej-ob, but the logistics are somewhat difficult. Amia's best travelling time is at night. Ok, so we have to leave on Thursday. I have to get a sub for my Friday morning class. She doesn't fall asleep till 8pm or so. That's a 6 or 7 hour drive to Louhelen meaning we'll get in like 2 or 3. Can Louhelen take us that late (they're really good so far in working with us)? Will we be too tired since Amia wakes up at dawn? Should we get a motel along the way? Where? Just a lot of things we never had to think about before. Usually this stuff is alright. It's just been a long day today for a bunch of reasons.
