Today was my last day at Seaquist and my last day at Tea Thyme was about a month ago. We have a little over a week to go before we hit the road in our RV. I thought this might be a good opportunity to reflect on lessons learned this summer. Continue reading
I have already begun thinking about next year’s employment, and in fact, I have a new part-time job lined up for next summer. Last year I went through the training to become a Certified Tourism Ambassador and I love talking about Door County, so what could be more natural than working in the Ellison Bay Information Center?

So far, they are talking about needing me for ten hours a week in the mornings. Continue reading
When I was growing up, my mother used to say I was as slow as molasses in January. She would drop me off in the toy department while she shopped for groceries and I would organize the little toys.
