On the job hunt once again...

Why is it that this area of my life always fails me? I mentioned a while ago how I was now part time at home with Coldwell Banker and well that's turned into me not having to do anything since they have nothing for me to do. So not fired but not getting any side work from them.

So I went out and got another job to get an income. My husband and I have friends who are both marines and they just had a baby so they offered me a babysitting job. I took it. I worked for them for maybe 3 weeks before she really aggravated me. She let someone else babysit in my place this week and for as long as she needs to because she just lost her job. Does that make sense to anyone? She gave this other girl my job because she needed it? What about the fact that she KNEW we just bought a new car and have a baby on the way? I guess those aren't reasons to need an income at all. It wasn't until a couple minutes of "talking" to her that the real reason finally came out. This other girl is only asking $100 a week whereas I was asking $8 an hour. My husband and I did research on what to charge and found that to be reasonable since I not only had to be up and ready at 6 am everyday and sometimes had to play chauffeur to her in the mornings since she doesn't have her license yet.

I am about to say something that I try to keep off of my blog but I need to get it out. BITCH!!!

Excuse my language. I don't think she was even going to tell me. I texted her sunday night asking what time the baby would be here in the morning and thats when she decided to spring it on me. And she said it as if she didn't think it was a problem and that we could actually be friends after this.

Ok. I am done getting all pissy about this. The point is I am now once again on the job hunt. Not a happy camper.

I Love You Mr. Sykes<3
You too Little Sykes<3

  1. good luck!

    The family I nanny for and I are having issues as well, their 14 year old daughter knows too much about sex and she blammed it on me telling her all about it, I have been a nanny for over 6 years, yeah right.
    She got in trouble and tried to throw it on me. They are not happy with me and won't talk to me about it. You don't want to baby sit or nanny for any one, good luck! You'll find something great :)

  2. Yeah... I still don't have a job either... it's a tricky game we play moving so often.

  3. I'm in the same boat! I've applied to three jobs and I haven't heard from any of them. It's getting really frustrating. I hope you find something really soon!

  4. Wow, that girl had a lot of nerve to pull that crap! I guess it just shows how unreliable some people are :/ I'm struggling to find a job's definitely scary but I figure when it's meant to be it will happen. Good luck!!

  5. Yeah that is incredibly shady. I'm sorry!
