Why I Love My Job

There have been very few jobs in my past where I could honestly say, “I love my job!”
Right now? I’m totally loving my job!

I actually don’t work just¬†one¬†job though. I have multiple jobs.

My first job is the hardest: Mom. I am the mother of two beautiful little girls. My 5 year old, Allison, drives me bananas with her constant, “Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!” and whining and crying. But I love her, she can be the sweetest little girl in the world. The Little One aka Miranda, who just turned 10 months old last week is simply adorable. She’s gone from being “The Crying Baby” to “The Crawling Baby” and now she’s “The Standing Baby” and even took her first steps while we were on vacation last week! She has yet to repeat it more than once, but I’m so proud of her! Best of all, she can’t say, “Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!” yet and whine – she does cry though at times.

My next job is my newest job: Sample Lady.
OK, the actual title is “Product Demonstrator” but let’s not kid ourselves, I’m a sample lady!!! When they schedule me I head on over to the Super Target and spend 5 hours offering samples. I love that it’s something new each day. My first day of work I got to give away candy! How popular can one person be? The next day was coconut water. I’m not a fan, but it was great asking our Target guests how they liked the coconut water and hearing the different responses. Even better was the looks on their faces as they took a sip!

My favorite job though, I have to say, is my¬†biggest¬†job. It’s the most work but I¬†thoroughly¬†enjoy it.
My mother owns the publishing company Melange Books and the Young Adult imprint Fire and Ice.
I am the web designer/webmaster. I am also head of the art department, so I’m in charge of both creating book covers and assigning covers to our other artists. I am also in charge of formatting each of our books for Amazon Kindle¬†– a¬†big job, but somebody’s gotta do it!

And lastly, my newest job: Web designer! I’ve done some web design in the past, previously for my mom’s author sites and, obviously, the book publishing sites. I got my start when I was very young and the internet was new to my home. I was probably 12 when I first started teaching myself HTML and have never stopped. I know there’s tons more to learn, but I’m eager for this challenge! (The extra money will be quite nice as well, with Allison started dance classes in September!!!)

I’m constantly crazy busy, but hopefully with cutting back on some of the time I spend on Facebook I’ll be able to hone some better time-management skills!
