I like it.

It sounds good,...it feels good,... it suits me.

I'm not one of those people who can do the same thing
 decade after decade.
I have never had a full time job....ever.... except to raise
 my children as a
stay at home mom. That is a different kind of job.
 I'm talking about an out
of the house...go to work..punch in or whatever full time job.

Don't get me wrong...I've had lots of
paying jobs....like:

accounting clerk
topsheet specialist
data entry
stage manager
set builder
light hanger for a theater
hallmark card specialist
music teacher K-2
private music teacher
graphic designer
dvd archive specialist
choir director
computer help specialist
bar tender
beer hall janitorial
avon lady
jafra lady

But now...I'm going for the change.
A Brand New Full Time Job! Starting in July!

Here's the best part....it's with
Americorps Vista!

What's that you say?

I'm Ready To Serve in AmeriCorps VISTA!

AmeriCorps VISTA members live and serve in some of our nation’s poorest urban and rural areas. With passion, commitment, and hard work, they create or expand programs designed to bring individuals and communities out of poverty.
Each VISTA member makes a year-long, full-time commitment to serve on a specific project at a nonprofit organization or public agency. In return for their service, AmeriCorps VISTA members receive a modest living allowance and health benefits during their service, and have the option of receiving a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award or post-service stipend after completing their service. About 6,500 VISTAs are placed each year in more than 1,200 projects in low-income communities around the country

I'm excited.....it means I'm ready to serve.
I'm ready to start a new adventure.
I'm ready for a change...in me and in America!


  1. Wow,this sounds exciting! I think it would kill me to work full time at this point in life! Americorps is a great org. and I'm sure they'll be glad to have you. Good luck!

  2. Thanks! I'm very excited. I'm starting to work out and get in shape...if it doesn't kill me...at least I'll have something to show for it. lol~ It will be worth it.

  3. Woohoo! Very exciting! I'm super proud of you and happy for your new journey. Change is great! I had no idea you were a Hallmark card specialist. You've kept it from me all these years.
