When I went to Mike's family's home in Canton, Ohio this Thanksgiving, I had a few realizations. First of all, I can no longer eat whatever I want over the holidays, because at 32, my metabolism is now working at a snail's pace, while my butt is growing at the speed of a cheetah's run. It's? Depressing.
Third, shopping on Black Friday sucks in small towns just like it sucks in big cities. Crowds just suck.
Finally, I'm beginning to get blog followers. Holla! When I talked to two different friends of my mother-in-law's, they knew what was going on in our lives because they read this blog. I had no idea! How cool is that?
They both said (and a girlfriend also reminded me today), that I haven't followed up and told you about my new job like I promised! I suppose I've been a little hesitant following the Conference Producer position debacle of January 2010. Remember that? I took a job doing what I thought was research, but it turned out to be more cold call sales, and I realized getting called a bi*** and getting hung up on does not put me in my happy place. But when I got the job, I was so excited so I told everyone, and then? I only lasted 9 days.
So since I've been working at my new job for about two months, I feel like it's okay to share. I got a job through a mutual friend as a Freelance Publicist for a P.R. company. I work from home which totally rocks, and my boss may be about the coolest person ever. I get to write, which I love, and I'm finally earning a paycheck which helps the ol' ego.
To Mary Ann, Suzette, and anyone else who may be reading this blog, thank you! (Now please don't tell Mike about the whole baby-smelling, may be ready for kids part. I'm sure the food coma I was in left me temporarily insane.)
