Every time I open up my blogger dashboard, I think "I've got to take another picture to use for my profile!" That's the problem with always being the one behind the camera, you never have any good pictures of yourself.
So, the past few weeks I've been volunteering on Fridays at the school where I used to work. It's always Friday since that's when folks have been ordering cakes. (Except for that Monday, but I was there again on Friday). Well, it seems that I'm going to be able to make about a hundred dollars or more each week from the baked items I'm selling there. I never really intended on selling anything but occasional cakes and cookies, but a couple weeks ago when I was asked if I would make a quiche, I thought "sure, why not." So I got 3 quiche orders last week and sold over 50 dollars worth of bake sale items. After I paid myself back for cost of ingredients, I made a profit of about 60 dollars. For this Friday, I have 6 quiche orders, an order for 3 dozen cupcakes, and am planning on taking bake sale items again. Also, the ladies at the school usually order lunch from one of the local restaurants and have it delivered to the school. I was asked if I would bring a couple of extra quiche (and casserole) and some type of salad to sell as a plate lunch on Fridays (they're getting tired of the usual choices). Of course I said yes! I'm really excited about my new little unexpected business.
*edit* Apparently the secret government agency wants him to "keep it on the down low", so I've taken out the name of the agency. Guess if he takes that job, we'll be living a life of secrecy lol.
Mr. McHacker had an interview with a *secretive government agency* this week. They want him to work for them. He has another interview with another of their departments in a couple of weeks, and may be going to take a polygraph and do the other stuff necessary for a security clearance. He also has interviews with two other private security corporations pretty soon. I'm really proud of him. He's worked so hard and it's great to see him getting these awesome job offers. If he took the *government* job, we'd have to move to *New England*. It's a long way from home, but it might be kinda cool. I think he really wants to work with one of the other private companies though. If he did, we would be able to stay here and he could work from home. And he would probably be able to start working before he's finished with the PhD in May.
If we stay here, I want to open my own business. If we move, I'm not so sure. Either way, I feel like things are really starting to go well for us now. I feel like a new chapter has started in our lives and I'm very excited.
