Am I really going back to the Mon-Fri, full time hustle? Yes, I am. I FINALLY got the official OK from the CEO today to start work at my new place of employment (I’ve only been waiting 3 weeks to start :-0 ). I know I have blogged about going back to work before but his time I have the ACTUAL start date- 10/8.

For those asking, the answer is still nooooooooooooooooooo, I am not giving up my ETSY shop! I have worked out a wonderful schedule that will allow me to work full time, attend my yoga practice, and pay plenty of attention to my family, friends, and Etsy shop. It sound like a busy schedule because it is and I like it this way. I have tried to stay busy during my time off with my shop, doing “things” around the house, and harassing all of my wonderful friends on your blogs…but that wasn’t enough. I want more money (still waiting for Angie to pay my tab at Rocki’s shop- LOL!) and I want to be bus ALL DAY. Maybe I’m nuts but I’m a nut who is not ready to sit still yet :-D

So, for the first time in 10 years I will punch a time clock tomorrow! I think I am actually excited about it…with a time clock comes less responsibility ;-D WOO HOO!!! I’m not used to taking a lunch at work, unless you call eating at your desk while you work a lunch, so clocking out and eating in a lunch room is going to feet strange for me. Gosh, I feel like a kid going to school for the first time! HAH!

Well, here I go back to work…………again :-D

*bows* Thank you! Thank you! Oh wait...what? This is about Laura? Oh. Heeeee! my baaaaaad. :oP

*hands Laura her Strawberry Shortcake lunchbox* Here Laura...it'll be fine. Make sure you're nice to all the other drones. They'll be a little shy at first, because they don't get out much. I've made you a PB&J with the crust cut off (heck yeah...) and you've got some carrot sticks with ranch dressing for dipping and some grapes...OH and I also threw in a small bag of doritos. If you don't like something, trade with someone else. Mkay?

You don't know a stranger do you? Before you realize it you'll know everybody! And they will all love you ♥ You'll be missed so much darlin! Have a wonderful first day! Whoot!!!!! ♥

Josh, my little man, I'm not going away forever....just 9 hours a day! Trust me, I WILL be visiting blogs...mwa hahahahahahaha ;-D ps..I just read your post....OMG!

Sharon- they ARE unleashing me on a lunchroom :-( Oh, that's OK. It will be the first time in HOW LONG I won't be eating at my desk! I have a feeling it is going to feel like being in a candy store, the excitement of being there, tasting all the treats, but then I eat too much and fall into a lump. HAH! But I won't know if I don't try ;-D

Thanks Mom (Angie). I knew you would pack me the best lunch!! Can I have a rainbow roll for tomorrow's lunch (*nudges Sharon, "I'll share..."*)

Thanks you guys for such a sweet send off. I promise this job will not consume me...my friends and family will ALWAYS come first :-) Love you all!

pst...Sharon, were you wearing your pink fuzzy slippers as up skipped away? LOL!

Hey Harriet said...

All the best for the first day of your new job. And of course for all the days after! :)

(ahem) Ms Laura. You know I'm happy that you are returning to work, but PLEASE do not stretch yourself so thin - I speak from experience. Yeah, I know you like to hear that from your older (um,I mean younger) sister, but PULeeeeze allow yourself some down time. Don't make me put WayWay on you.

With that said (steals Ang's & Sharons musical notes) ♫♫♫take this job and shove it♫♫♫... oops, wrong song ;)

Josh said...

Why does Laura have to go! Aaaaaaahh! Here's the directions to where she works: Turn Left (←) at Depression St. Make a right (→) at Teary Bl. Keep going forward (↑) on... I can't take it anymore, come back Laura! Drive. And you're there!

OMG! Where do I start? Oh, little man, I have to start with you. I LOVE your directions and you took the words right out of my mouth, "I can't take it anymore!" Well, that's about what I said to them today! HAH!!

Thank you everyone for the warm wishes and the comedic ones, too. :-D

I will share briefly my first day of work....they are all so lucky that I am NOT their manager! Holy Moly the lack of organization and the amount of childish behavior is throug the roof. I actually thought about it today that, maybe this isn't for me...then I thought, NOOOO! The one thing I am not is a quiter so, tomorrow, the office staff is going to hear from me...I may be sent home with check in hand, I may not, either way they are going to learn a little something! LOL!!!
