I haven't written about my jobs yet because there hasn't been much to say yet. My first job is that I will be the new installation ambassador for Military.com. Basically, it will be my job to promote the website and their services in this area. Since my job boils down to getting more eyeballs on their website, maybe you could take a minute to check it out? Maybe read some opinions or watch some Shock and Awe videos or read SpouseBUZZ? And if you're a veteran or a spouse looking for a job, they have a great employment tool.

My second job starts this weekend, and I haven't said anything yet because I thought if I said it out loud, I would jinx it. I am going to start teaching the knitting classes at our local Michael's. A knitting job...how can it get any better? And part of my job description is that I have to promote the class by knitting in the Michael's and answering customer questions. So I get paid to go sit in Michael's and knit. I've been in a perpetual Michael Moore "Was it all just a dream?" fog about this job. I can't wait to get started.

So, life is pretty sweet right now. Except for the dead fish.

1 Sarah - I am really interested in learning to knit - I even bought a book. I just need to take a class I think. I wish I lived near you - I'd def take your class at Michaels. My MIL knits, but whenever we're together, it doesnt seem like there is any time for instruction. Any pointers in getting started?

3 Keri -- If you live near a Michael's anywhere, maybe they also offer a class? If not, I think the videos at KnittingHelp.com are really great. You can pause and back up as often as you need to see the actions. I have used that website many times to learn new techniques. Maybe that can help? I think learning from a book is hard, so I like the online videos.

4 Talk about doing what you love, that is awesome. I'm so happy you've been able to land not one, but two jobs that involve things you are passionate about. ....and might I add KnittingHelp.com is VERY useful.

5 You lucky girl! Do you get an employee discount too? Gravy! Back in my younger wilder days, I had to do community service as part of a DUI. They didn't need anyone right then at the senior home, so they sent me to the library. Talk about a kid in a candy shop. They loved me there: I knew my alphabet, AND the Dewey Decimal System! LOL
