Brain Dump

  • I start  my "new" job today.  I'm so excited!  I don't have any of the jitters that usually come with starting a job.  I know the women I'm working for and they are sweet and young and so happy that I've agreed to work for them.  They made a brand new office for me.  I know the job, so the learning curve will be minimum.  I get a paycheck!
  • I'm three rooms into 40 Bags in 40 DaysAlthough, this Lent, it's been shortened to 30/30, in light of having foot surgery at the end of the month.  Just as well, because I'm finding a lot less to purge this year.
  •  We've set up "pay day" for our household on the first of the month.  I love this new system, unlike getting paid every other Friday and having to remember, when's Payday? and adjusting bill paying accordingly.  Now, it's like having a bag of buttons every first day of the month, I spend them as needed, and when we're getting low on buttons, we quit spending them.  I know, it's probably not much different than it was before, but the fact that it lines up by the month, just makes it so much easier on my brain.
  • My oldest son just returned from a business trip to Dubai.  His hotel room came with breakfast in bed and a massage.  Good grief! There's no way a 22-year-old male could appreciate that the way this 53-year-old, very tired, mom could have.  I think I'll ask my new employers if they could throw in a massage now and then. What do you think?
  • For four days, I thought I lost my camera.  And then I found it, right under my nose.  Just in time to redo my blog header for March.  Can you believe that in just two days it will be March?  Me neither.

I hope you will tell us about your new job. It sounds perfect for you. And yes, a massage perk would not be at all unheard of. You sound good my friend.

So exciting for the new job! I know you'll just fit right in and they'll be so glad they nabbed you!

I think I want your son's job. Well, at least the perks.
