I have been so busy lately! I have 2 airbnb guests right now (my Aussie student is here and he is awesome! We’re hanging out so much I think we’re married now… lol) and I also took a quick vacay down to the Finger Lakes region in New York.
That was kind of fun. Our extended family had a giant fancy-pants lakehouse on Lake Seneca all to ourselves. If that weren’t enough, it had hidden rooms and treasures and all sorts of fun things to explore! Plus my room was like staying in a castle. Awesomesauce.
Since we were in the wine region we did some wine tours and tastings. I came back with about 4 bottles of deliciousness. Yummo.
The vacation was a nice break; before that I was going full-tilt between social activities, playing hostess, holding a BBQ, celebrating all my jobs and more. The only thing I regret is spending so much… I bought a ton of stuff at the outlets nearby. I came back with 4 bras, 4 dresses, 4 pairs of shoes, new dish sets, etc…. my parents weren’t too happy! LOL I just told them it was all for my San Fran trip…
Speaking of which I am just booking my flights now! I am still so stoked that I’ll get to work for Airbnb. I’m just a little concerned though about the actual employment part… so far all the docs and info I have gotten have been geared towards US citizens. I know they hire international folk, so what happens with them? I’m just trying to figure out if their contract and stuff is even applicable to me since I’m in Canada and will be working from here. Maybe they set me up as a contractor or something to get around US employment law? I have no idea but am hoping someone will be able to fill me in soon. I’m freaking out!
I just really have a lot on my plate right now and I think it’s catching up with me. I’ve been putting off work on my shop (side note, my soap order just came in! w00t!) and being generally lazy, but hopefully I can break out of that soon. No rest for the weary!
Have you seen my new shop yet? With Heart (www.withheartshop.com) is an amazing collection of Original & Interesting Stuff that I have curated myself! Lots of beautiful handmade and hard-to find things for your shopping pleasure. Don’t forget that the holidays are just around the corner!
