Guess what?

Well, my lazy days of laying by the pool, taking naps and watching "Magnum, P.I." are officially coming to an end. Why, you might ask?

I GOT A JOB!!

Starting Tuesday, I’ll be working in the marketing department of a large construction company. I will be co-workers with John, Karen’s husband – who, I might add, is the reason I got the job (you're the best, JT!!). Apparently, it IS about who you know, not what you know. Although what I know is also coming in handy.

So. After almost five months of a lovely life of leisure, I can now put to rest my worries about paying the mortgage and go back to the land where people work for a living.

I’m happy about that, because as much as I love being at home and doing whatever I want whenever I want to, I’m getting sort of bored. I mean, I spent this week rearranging the living room and getting rid of stuff because I couldn’t stand all the clutter. I have way too much stuff. And I’m getting a desk, because I would really love to have my dining room table back for purposes of oh, I don’t know, eating, instead of as computer central. Plus, as part of my new job, I can work from home sometimes if I want to, so I should have an official “home office,” don’t you think?

Anyway. I’m excited. Yay! Job!

Congratulations on the job. Construction firm huh. Depending on the size of the company and the office space, you could be surrounded by muscular dudes who work in (typically) close fitting jeans and a tee shirt. Just remember to keep your eyes on the work, and not the workers :-)

YAY! Congratulations, Amber.

Congrats! Yeah, I ran into that when we moved- loved sitting at home and cleaning and watching Sex in the City... for about 3 weeks. Then I was driving aimlessly and wandering in such stores as "CVS" and "Walgreens", buying lipgloss and wine and hose. All in one store. Glorious.

Now that I am working i wish I had more free time.

Oh greener grass....

but congrats! :)

Congrats! What exciting news.

I didn't know you were without a job? I knew you weren't liking it, so all the better!

Yay job! :)

Ooh I get to work from home sometimes too and it is the BEST! Congrats, sounds like you're going to be very very happy!

Are you going to take pics of your BEFORE non-office, and your AFTER ready-to-rock-home-office????

That's awesome. In a weird sick sort of way I love it when I have time between jobs and I can stay at home, but I would rather be working. I need a rich distant relative to die so I can just stay home! I bet you will love your new job.
