Things that have happened

Employment bullet points!

  • I got a job. I started Tuesday. I think I like it. So far, I'm just very busy. Also, since I had picked up a lot of hours at job #2 in anticipation of not having a primary job, I'll be even a little busier than normal for the next few weeks. But hopefully I'll survive.
  • In related news, my new coworkers discovered my comedy video. The (pretty much) highest-ranking person I've ever talked to at my job sent me an email that said
    "I'm glad I finally know someone who can help me find things at Home Depot."
  • I quickly ruined my good-ish first impression by accidentally breaking a security system.
  • Fortunately, my new direct supervisor-type bosses imediately decided that it wasn't my fault.
  • Either I got really spoiled by partial telecommuting and an easy project schedule at my last job, or I'm getting old. Eight (and sometimes eleven) hour work days seem ridiculously long. And traffic..? Ugh.
  • Achilles and I were offered a really good deal on a rental house that is significantly closer to both of our jobs and cheaper than our condo. However, we'd have to try to sell our condo (likely for a loss) if we decided to move. We're not sure what to do.
  • My niece says my name now, and cries when I leave. She has me wrapped around her little finger. I'm looking into buying her a pony.
  • I have to go run now. Literally. Blah. Training for a half marathon seemed like a good idea when I wasn't going to have anything else to do. Next time I get bored, I'm just going to convince Achilles we should have a baby.
  • Just kidding.

Wow, you're a busy lady... and a newlywed, how will that work out? Glad you got a new job. Is it in a field you enjoy?

About that pony... we may be able to make a deal... but you'd HAVE to come and personally check him out first!

And how do you fit in the half marathon training? Do you do this in your sleep?

Have a good day friend!

Practicing making a baby is much more fun than running. Just saying. ;)

Also, YAY about the job. So happy for you. xx
