Where i bin


Guess what I did?

Started a full time job. For real.

Haven't worked full time for a real long time. But an opportunity came up at my husband's workplace and I went for it.

So for the past two weeks, I have learned

Fax machine, Photocopier, Scanner, Fancy Business Phone,
How to Invoice, How to cost jobs, How to enter bills and pay bills and receive parts,
Two different kinds of business software, Excel,
How to work a stapler and letter opener, plus the thing that takes the staples out, I am really good at taking staples out, by the way, you would barely know they were ever there except for the little Dracula bites in the paper.

HuGe LeArNiNg curve. And I somehow have to figure out how not to get home at 530 and have to run around like a chicken till 1030pm.

Thankfully, Jay's mom lives with us, so it's a big big plus for childcare. Along with the fact that Sam and Monty are both now full timers.

Monty got in trouble at school yesterday for standing in the sink. Neat, huh?

I have a nice office. Big window and lots of space. I can see a bridge highway out my window, watch trucks gliding along it.

So, yeah! If I didn't stop by your blog in the past bit, forgive moi. Will get back on track now that I am not so new at everything. Blogging from work! Always wanted to be one of those people!

The wedding that lucy is a flower girl in is NEXT week. Should be so fun.

And now I better get back to stapling. Don't want to get in trouble! Get meself feered.

Have a super weekend, folks!

Very cool! Congrats!

I happen to be a particularly poor staple-taker-outer. And I will now forever think of those holes as "Dracula bites", by the way. Love that.

Congrats! I love to remove staples. I'm not so good with a letter opener, though. Looking forward to Miss Lucy, all dolled up :)

Oh wow -- BIG change, eh? Congrats and best wishes! The mommy-juggle is always a tight-rope, but sometimes a circus is fun. Although, perhaps not as much fun when you get busted for standing in the sink at school. WTF??! Silly boy!

Congrats on the new job! I started a new job...a whopping 5 hours a week and I still spend an entire day getting caught up afterward. But I digress.

I hear ya' on the whole learning curve thing...I feel like a knob.
