Heather needs a job
So, Heather's summer job ended and her expenses haven't. Life seems so much more expensive now than it was when I was a kid. Especially with her driving... So, this is my attempt at networking.
She has applied to work at Court Sports Kids Klub and at the River Road Park, but we won't know if either of those pan out for some time. I don't know--is it just me? This whole looking for a job thing wigs me out!
She worked about 20 minutes this summer at KFC. (Well, maybe a few minutes more.) But between girls camp and volunteering at cub camp and family vacation and getting her wisdom teeth out, she really didn't work many hours. And she says she HATED it and will not work fast food again. (I keep telling her she's lucky not to have to work at the potato factory where I worked for three summers, standing in the cold, noisy, smelly factory cutting black spots off potatoes all NIGHT long. She says that sounds fun...)
I know this is rambling, but I am really wondering what to encourage her to do. Jobs for teens seem hard to find. Especially ones that won't insist on her working Sundays, which is strictly off-limits for us. If anyone has any ideas or leads, I'd be grateful. Or if you need a babysitter, she's really good with kids. Or you can just pray for us... :-)
