Hooray for Employment!

I am very happy to announce that I start my new job on Monday!  After realizing that staying at home all the time just isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, I set out to find a job.  There wasn’t much available, so when I came across an ad Tuesday that seemed perfect for me, I jumped on it!  I saw the ad Tuesday and applied.  Wednesday, I had an interview.  Thursday, I was offered the job, and today I accepted!  That was really quick! 

I’ll be working at an animal hospital, so I think it’ll be fun to see all the people and their pets.  My biggest obstacle will probably be keeping my household to a one pet family!  

There’s more good news!  One of my cousins had her little baby boy on Wednesday.  I’m so happy for the family and wish I could be there to meet the little guy. 

 So, this week has turned out to be a great week.  I had my doubts on Monday, but things are certainly looking up!


It’s just one of those days…

It’s just one of those days…(that makes me think of the Limp Biscuit song, hehe.)

I have so much to be thankful for and so many great things in my life.  I wish I had more people to share them with, though.  I’m living in a beautiful place with amazing weather and endless opportunities for fun and excitement.  The down side is that (besides my amazingly wonderful, handsome, loving husband) I have no one to share it with. 

There seem to only be a few solutions to this problem. 

  1. My family and friends move to the west coast so we can be closer.
  2. My family and friends fly out to the west coast for a fun-filled visit (or two…or three.)
  3. I get a job which helps me meet people….hopefully developing friendships.  Then, I will have new friends that I can have fun with.

So….it looks like the most do-able choice is for me to get a job and meet people!  I’m thinking of contacting a temp agency.  I seriously hope that will pick me up out of the dumps.  Being home all day by myself simply isn’t good for my mental health.  I need some outside stimulation for my brain.  A job might be the perfect thing.

I’m also wanting to start selling prints of my photography.  I’ve considered Etsy as a way to have an online marketplace booth.  I’m just not sure….

So, if anyone would like to come to the beach for a vacation, I’d absolutely love the company.  Also, I’d love to help you spruce up your walls with a print from my ever-growing photo collection.


When the Saints Go Marchin’ In…

The New Orleans Saints are going to the Superbowl!  I still can’t believe it’s finally happened, but I’m so excited!  Tomorrow’s game will be a special time for thousands and thousands of fans.  This is the day fans have been waiting on for years!  I’m so glad I get to watch the game (on television,) but I sure wish I could be back home with friends and family to share this special day.  However, I will be watching the game with my very best friend and some new friends out here on the West Coast.  We’ll be representin’ with our black & gold and fleur de lis gear!

Whether the Saints win or lose this game, I consider their 2009 season a total victory! 

Enjoy the game, everybody!  Who Dat!
