What a weekend I had. My sister-in-law was in town, which was a hyper-intense mix of emotional intensity and general activity. I've got plenty to say about that, but right now, I'm feeling panicked.
I need a nanny. Last year, when I moved to Portland and needed a nanny, I posted a job on sittercity.com and I got a ton of responses and found someone great (who is now going back to school full-time). This year, I posted a job on sittercity.com and I have had virtually no interest.
I need someone to start on September 13. Did I mention that I'm feeling panicked?
Does anyone have general recommendations on where to look for someone besides sittercity? I have looked on craigslist (mostly saw a lot of posts that made me say eeeeek!) and community bulletin boards. I'm considering registering with care.com and cross-posting my sittercity.com job there. Portlanders, do you know anyone looking for nanny work? If you know of someone who might be interested, send me an email and I can give you more particulars about the job.
I have lived under a really lucky star as far as childcare is concerned. C'mon star, keep on shining on me. Please?
