I just spoke to the owner of the funhouse where I may soon have a job! I am going to meet him for an interview next Tuesday morning (August.7th) at 11 am. This is going to be an interview like I have never had before...I need to do some homework!
He is looking for someone to plan/organize/run a morning playgroup during the week for pre-schoolers. Should I get the job, I would be planning everything (with final approval from him, of course). He wants me to come prepared with ideas, i.e. games, songs, crafts, etc. Sort of an idea of things I could do and ways to help bring people in.
So...I'm a little nervous. I know I can organize activities, but to start it would be a couple days a week...moving to 5 days a week (maybe even twice a day) if it goes really well. So, should I get the job, I will only have a full 5 days a week if there are enough kids coming in to the playgroup. Eek!
I have some ideas already...perhaps my marketing skills learned in college and university will FINALLY be put to use. Plus all those years of teaching Sunday School and Pioneer Club. Oh yeah, and I think having a toddler will be helpful!
I am starting to think that I may just keep Stubby Sally* a few more months until I know what is happening...I could probably hang on until Christmas if I had too! But...I mentioned that I make and decorate cakes and he said he could probably work something out for me in that regard...so maybe I'll be too busy doing cakes anyways that I won't need the bus!

* For those of you who don't know who Stubby Sally is...she is the school bus that I drive. I call her Sally - long story but basically I don't feel that a bus that has a name can break down on me! - and David nicknamed her "Stubby" Sally...because she is a short, stubby bus. I think David is a little sad at the thought of her not sitting out in the parking lot...he sees her when he comes to work. Well David...who knows, even if I am still driving bus, I won't have Sally...she is old and is now out to pasture, donating usable parts to other buses in need. :0)
