I'm About To Embark On An Incredible Journey

Who doesn't want to get paid for doing something they love?


One day last week I was reading through my Reader, and I happened upon a post that said Provo Craft needed sales specialists to demo the Cricut. I clicked the link and the one near me still needed filling so I shot off an email and didn't think much else of it.
Enter Monday, I talk to Allie from the company hired out to hire the Sales Specialists, and she give me the run down.
Start May 2, five hours every Sunday until the end of June, and oh, there's a training in Chicago this weekend. Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Would this be a problem?
I answer quickly that I can make it work. But my head is spinning, I'll have to ask my husband to take time off work, what about the kids? Anya still nurses at night!
Jim talked me off the ledge, Anya would be fine, she's 18 months old, she doesn't need me like that much anymore, (And I've been watching, it's true, the last three nights she's just suckled a tiny bit and then she's out.) The kids will be fine, he'll have them. And he can take the time off work, it would be worth it.
So Tuesday is a flurry of interviews, paperwork, phone calls, more paperwork, like three hours paperwork. Holy cow!
I find out that a lot of the women going have two years plus experience with the Cricut. I have about a month. I'll just put on my Newbie shirt and I'll be fine.
So in just a few short days I'll be staying at the Hilton at O'Hare and cramming my head full of all things Cricut. I'm supposed to be learning about the Cricut Cake. I've decorated a few cakes, and I cannot wait to get my hands on this.

I'll be keeping this updated, though not while I'm gone. I don't have a laptop. (awwwww) I'll be taking notes and pictures though! Wish me luck!
