I went for an interview on Friday night. I got a call that I got the job.

And guess what...its at a liquor store lol. In the Canadian province I am in Liquor is a crown corporation entity. The pay is pretty decent. The position is for a part time sales clerk. It will be for an "acting" clerk with better pay for those hours when the manager is not there.

I am happy with this for now. It could be around 20-30 hours a week. My MIL and hubby can watch the baby for mostly everything so that is valuable to me where the pay is real pay, not with child care taken out. And the baby is with family. I love that. And it being part time I still get to spend time with her when I am not working and she is still so little. She is 14 and a half months old.

Plus there are opportunites as this is a new store opening. If the sales are good they may need an assistant manager and a product consultant at this location. I am told they hire from with in first.

The training starts in the middle of October. I am still wrapping up some things with the sale of the store. I hope to be done the bulk of it by then.

I do like to work and maybe we can put away some more cash for a new house. That shoud motivate me!

I decided to sell to hopefully get a down payment on a new house, and have less stress with owning the store and all that comes with that. I am interested in holidays and possibly weekends if this turns into a full time position, and I may not need daycare for awhile. I just got an opportunity I could not refuse. After 8 years of doing it, it was time to turn the page.
