Update on wife's job

January 17th, 2007 at 05:40 am

I explained in my last entry that my wife would be leaving her job of 2 years and returning to SAHM status. That's official now as she spoke to the administrator yesterday and will hand in written notice today (as required by company policy).

However, that might not be the end of the story. Her job has been as secretary of our synagogue. Monday nite, she spoke with the Rabbi and let him know she would be leaving. She works closely with him doing his appointment scheduling, typing his dictation, etc., so she wanted to let him know. He has been pushing to get someone to help him part-time, maybe a couple of evenings each week, to do organizational stuff, as he is not the most organized person in the world. He said he would speak with the board about coming up with the money to hire her part-time.

Yesterday, when she spoke to the administrator, she said the same thing. Maybe my wife could stay on on a PT basis. Since our daughter attends religious school there, my wife is already in the building 2 nites a week while our daughter is in class. If they can arrange to pay her to work during those hours, and maybe one or two other times during the week, that would be perfect. Perhaps 8-10 hours/week.

It needs to be proposed to the finance committee, which will happen tomorrow. We'll see what they say.

    Hope it works out - would be great for her to get paid to work while she has to be there anyway! Cool beans.

    Thats what I do! 2 hrs a night doing the after school care at my daughters school. I oversee homework and play. During this time, my daughters are in volleyball, or cheerleading practice anyway. Since they are in different practices, I have to be there to supervise who isn't, so may as well get paid for it. It works well. I've learned it helps to start supper or crockpot it though-or its a rush when you get back home!
