My daily dose of spam job openings included six, count em, six job postings from Avon in one email from Monster this morning. How delightful. I go to college, work my butt off and the best fit I can get for 17 years of administrative and professional experience is as an Avon Lady. What has the economy come to?
I have nothing against Avon

I shall now start researching which direct sales company provides the best consultant benefits for compensation, discounts, incentives and product diversity. I will pretend it is my job for the week. That will keep me busy along with trying to find a new house to rent, cleaning up this house, packing this house into boxes and moving those boxes into storage while I look for a different house to move into. I am sure I can find time somewhere.
The one thing about having all this free time is I don't really feel like I have any free time.

Off to work I go....
