Dilemma time - it's been a while...

Okay, so I have a bit of a problem, which probably isn't really a problem if I look at it from the right angle. I know what I probably should do, but wanted input. From someone other than my mother, who has no clue. Which is why I'm turning to you, faithful blog readers.

When I started working at the daycare I was under the impression that I'd be working something like 28-35 hours a week, at least during my break, and then about 15 hours a week when I go back to school. In two weeks, I got 25 hours. I would have had 35 if I hadn't gotten sick - but that still leaves at least 28 hours that I didn't get to work. Now she tells me that I probably won't get to work full days on the days that I will be scheduled when school starts. Meaning instead of 15 hours, I'll get 9. I don't think that's fair at all. What say you??

Although, there are a lot of things that make me think that maybe this isn't the best daycare for me. Which I'll get into tomorrow, after hearing some opinions, without the information I have to share. I will however say that I'm not going to recommend the daycare to K's mom when she next asks.

Now onto my book of the day. I chose The Nanny Diaries in part because I have read it more times than I can count. Also, it's kind of fitting. I really want to find a 15 hour a week nanny job for next semester. It shouldn't be that hard right? There have got to be mom's out there who stay at home but who need a bit of help (or better yet, need a break). We're talking Wednesdays and Fridays, with the potential for Monday mornings until like 1030.

Within the pages of The Nanny Diaries, I can find bits of jobs that I have had within the pages, and I've never had a full-time position, or worked for an extremely wealthy family in a large city.

Up next: another book by these authors.
