Today when we went in to eat at McDonald's (healthy, I know), there was a sign that announced they were hiring weekend help. I grabbed an application and filled it out after eating. I turned it in to one of the managers and she asked if I had time to do a survey. I said I did and filled out the survey, which was basically asking personality and previous work history questions. When I turned it in, she said to give them about a week, but if I wanted to speed it along I could come in for the open interviews Sunday from 2p-3p. Now I have to decide if I actually want the job.
It would help us quite a bit to have an additional source of income. With the bills we have and the debts we brought in, it would help a great deal to be able to have more money to pay them with. Although the job wouldn't be mentally stimulating, it would be more activity than I have on my day job, which is primarily sitting at a desk. The downsides include not being able to have as much time to spend cleaning the house, organizing the budget and coupons and taking care of the dogs. I would have to rely on Tim to pick up some of the slack. If I don't get a second job, Tim will go out and get one which I do not consider an option. His work is very physically demanding, and especially in the summer he is completely exhausted when he comes home. It is also very dangerous and very drama-filled, so he needs time to wind down.
I did apply at a grocery store today too, so maybe that will come through. But I won't know until later, maybe later this week, maybe later than that. So do I go in for the interview tomorrow?
I think the answer is that I do.
