I'll miss the naps.


Hey, y'all! I didn't mean to disappear from the blog this week. I came down with a case of the fall sickies. Anytime there's a drastic weather change, I get sick. It happens every spring and every fall. I've been battling nasal congestion, a sore throat and a horrible cough. In the midst of being sick, I went on a job interview. The interview lasted two hours and ended with an offer. I start on Monday. I'm excited about this new opportunity. It's one that will lead me away from mortgage and back to accounting. Who knew the girl who failed Algebra would end up being so good with numbers?

So, my eight weeks of unemployment are coming to an end. I'll miss the naps, time wasted on Pinterest and eating lunch in bed. Now I'll be forced to get up at 5:30 and have my kids out the door by 7:00. It'll be nice having our normal routine back, but it won't be nice getting up that early. This first week isn't going to be fun for any of us. Wish us luck -- lots and lots of luck.

Congratulations!!!! I'm so excited for you. I was horrible at Algebra too - but at least you're budgeting for humans, not triangles, right? Oh wait... that's geometry... I suck at math, hence why I'm an artist ;)

I too suck at algebra, and math in general. Yet I am a payroll coordinator for my job.

Good luck! Remember the crockpot is your friend!
