I am sorry that I haven't posted anything cool lately. I have several projects going on, like a dresser shown in the background here
and this dining set that I have super cool plans for
But I have had to change my schedule around quite a bit.
Well, I went to the interview only to discover that it is a cooks job. During the interview, I was asked questions about things like 'at what temp do you store foods?' My answer? Cold. Another question was, 'what would you do if you were supposed to make a meatloaf, but your meat was still frozen?' My answer? Try to thaw in cold water, or change the menu!
Long story short, I got the job, somehow. I told them multiple times during the interview "A cook I am Not!" So I was shocked when they called to offer me a part time/on call position.
I started training last Friday. Since I had a yard sale planned for Saturday I could not work that day, and had three days off. I went back to work yesterday, and this week I am scheduled for 32.5 hours, and the same for next week. What?? I thought this was part time and on call?! Turns out a lady is out on medical leave so I am filling in for her and training at the same time.
Being that yesterday was my 2nd day, I was certain I would have someone with me all through the shift. But when I got there, I was informed I would be alone for a good deal of my shift. No way! I tell them, now wait a minute... I am not a cook, it is my 2nd day and you are leaving me alone? Are you CRAZY?
Well, day shift gets off at 2:30. I started at 12:30. The boss would be there at 3:30 so that left me alone for an hour. No biggie. Institutional cooking isn't really too bad in the long run. Once the other lady returns from her leave, I will move on to training in other aspects of the job; other positions, and then I will be able to choose which position I am most comfortable with.
Also, during all of this, we are experiencing a heat wave, and the least amount of rain in this region in a decade. Normally it rains buckets for short periods throughout July, and this month we have had barely a trace.
So hopefully I will find time to work on getting the dresser finished and the dining set too so I have some cool things to share real soon. Please don't fear, I will work things out to keep up with my projects and blog and work this new job too. I value my reader's and want you all to stick around to see what I come up with next! I still have craft projects and a custom build I hope to finish some day too! (that one has been on the back burner for waaay too long!)
So ...until the next time...have a sun shiny day!
