      YES!!! I accepted!!! My current bosses were a bit upset that I'll be leaving my summer job early, but this is too good to pass up! I can finally breathe. I hope this is the gateway to a long, rewarding career. I'll gt to read advanced copies of new books! I almost fainted when they called with the offer!

        Now go with the hubby and get a big friggin' butter-soaked porterhouse with sautéed wild mushrooms and a crisp salad to celebrate!

          I love cooking. I'm frakking tired of cooking. I'm going back to simplicity for a bit. Cooked meat with spices, cooked veg or simple salad on the side. Simple homemade meat and veg soup for lunch. I hate dishes. I have no dishwasher. I am so done with dishes.

            We used to have the sweetest Maytag at our old place - three levels, three jet arms, adjusto-everything. You could wash almost everything from wine glasses to grill crud in that thing... and we left it behind as our new place had no dishwasher and wasn't plumbed for one (country place).

            Seven yeeeeaaaarrrrrsssssss later, we just got a dishwasher, and it has been heaven. With the family size you grew up in, you know what piles of dishes await you after Thanksgiving... The daughters pitched long and hard for one, and now that it is finally here, I made only one law: that I will forevermore hear no whine or complaint about doing dishes in any context or situation.

            Still glad the girls did 7 years of dishes, though - they know they are blessed to have a dishwasher, which is more than I can say for a lot of their pampered friends. I'll put you on Santa's list. Just maybe......

              I attempted the ole dish-mountain and ended up breaking my monogrammed anniversary glass Our 5 year anniversary is next Friday, and we'll get some fancy antique steins to commemorate! I got some lamb fat on my blouse today, and had some older chick in Vibrams glare at me for a half-hour at work. Maybe she thinks she knows me from the forums? Am I particularly virulent? The mystery shall remain unsolved!

                I begin my new career tomorrow, the librarian acquisitions job that does not require public contact. I really hope that this will help lower my cortisol and stress. I can't tell you how excited I was yesterday, on my last day, when a bitchy customer was bothering me, and I didn't have to worry about pleasing her, because I was never going to have to deal with shit like this again!!! I felt reborn. Peace of mind makes all the difference- freedom from customer service slavery is exhilarating!

                  my pinkies were cold today at my new job. I need pinkie muffs. I'm sure you all missed me and my stimulating posts. Oh, and I got locked in the VIP garage at work for a full 15 minutes on my first day. Total panic- no escape, as my badge doesn't have clearance to get out. Snaked my way into the elevator as an exec was getting out. I am such a Mr. Bean.

                    Just letting you know you have another pair of eyes on your journal. I've chuckled and laughed throughout.

                    You had me hooked in your first post when you listed, "I hate people," as one of the struggles you have.

                    Congratulations on the job!

                      Oh, wow, thank you! I have the most mundane life ever, but in my head, it's all top-notch adventure. Another struggle: I sometimes eat this microwave popcorn from the store that's called "Butter Explosion," and it actually depicts a buttery explosion on the box. It disintegrates the roof of my mouth a bit.

                          I succumbed to eating some birthday party ice cream yesterday, and now I have one of those ungodly underneath-the-skin chin pimples. It's the first cystic pimple I've had in well over a year. It could have been the ice cream, or the extreme stress of hydroplaning on the slick highway yesterday. I also have a tiny spider-bite on my tummy, which, unfortunately, when I went to scratch it at work, probably looked like I was scratching my lady bits. I'm making a fine impression, to be sure.

                            Hi Rasputina!

                            Oh, man! Don't you hate those one-two appearanches punches in life?? A monster zit and an itchy abdomen - ugh. There are some days when I think I must positively glow with wretchedness. My least-loved: shaggy and in need of a haircut, bra scootching, ass won't fit into the jeans, nothing nice in the closet, the monthly terror, and general awful pallor (you should see how pale I am in real life - this is not hard to accomplish for me). Those days make me wish the kids had a substitute mom I could somehow hire and send out into public with them - so the kids wouldn't be embarassed by me. (mind you, they aren't embarassed of me, but that is my mindset in those moments)

                            Just FYI - get B&T (Boericke and Tafel) brand homeopathic "Ssssting Stop" gel tube. We are never without it, and it works well. Local health food store should carry it.

                              Thanks, cakes! I'm sure you're a stunning mom, btw! Despite the pallor I think pale is lovely!

                                Debuted my new standing desk rig at work today- it was if I had parted the sea, people were so awestruck by it. Lol, it feels better to stand and type, I actually came home with more energy and my back and hips didn't hurt. I may start a revolution at the office, as my boss was bringing people by to look at my desk some even wanted to take measurements to build their own!
