Yesterday was my last day at Things Remembered, although I may work for them as an engraver during Second Season (May – June).  But I could no longer manage one of their stores with a clear conscience.  Their payroll is one of the smallest in my twenty years of retail management, and most of the time, each employee works alone in the store.  Though my manager worked valiantly to get more hours for the store, it simply fell on deaf ears.  I could no longer accomplish all that was required.

 Next week, I begin a new adventure!

 I will work with Wayne and Candi, helping them establish and grow their delivery business, concentrating on the pool permit side of things.  Hopefully, we will also find a regular delivery route before the pool business slows down around August.  This is a step of faith for us, as we are leaving the world of salary dependence, and moving into the realm of commission-only support.  I really believe it will work, but it will certainly take a lot of work!

One of our biggest concerns is health insurance.  Alma certainly needs it with her condition, and I’m experiencing basic age-related health issues, as well.  In order to provide for that, I’m starting work with Starbucks this next week, also.  Although we will pay COBRA for the next three months, after that we can be covered by Starbucks insurance, as long as I continue working at least 20 hours a week.
