So glam.

One day, after I was feeling better from my stupid tonsil removal from hell, Evan was all, "are you gonna start looking for a job again?" Excuse me? No.

But that's not how that went. Because I feel terrible that we've been a one-income family for three plus months and we are going to Ethiopia in omg four months? What? (Time. Please slow down?) And I feel terrible that I spend money all the time because I have a bad habit of needing a new outfit every time I do something and needing makeup and needing to eat and blahblahblah. Also, I had a bad habit of not getting Sybil spayed and now we have 7 kitties and those things are not cheap. (Ps. I need to post pictures of the little monsters! They're so big!)

Anyway. Rambling.

I went to this temp agency because I'm over So over them and their "Wendy's wants to hire you as a manager!!!" Um. No.

The temp lady was so nice, so understanding and so willing to get me a job that I would like.

But I had to leave empty handed. It was a little frustrating, but then I realized I would have one more day of freedom, one more day of fun (at least) before chaining myself to a new job. Then I got home and I literally stepped in the door and she was calling me about a 3 week temp job. Not exactly what I had in mind, but whatever. It was 3 weeks of pay so I took it.

So where am I spending the next three weeks? Mackenzie Disposal.

Yup. That's exactly what it sounds like. Garbage collection. Ew? Yeah, ew.

I'm an office person. I don't touch the garbage. (Sarah, remember when you thought you had a glamorous summer job? Mine is better.) I answer the phone, post bills, enter route info, and type. I've never ever had an office job and I kind of like it. I can wear jeans and flip flops. I get an HOUR lunch break. I get my own desk. I like it. It's completely different than anything I've ever done. It's a nice change.

BUT. Apparently I'm going blind. First day on the job? Migraine by 12:00 because I was attempting to read the tiny little print on a million pages of paper. (I'm spoiled with my kindle. I will never be able to read books, newspapers, or paper and print again.) So I dug out my glasses, that I probs should be wearing anyway, and no more migraines! Plus they're cute. Evan told me I'm a "sexy secretary." I'll take it.

Ps. Is anyone else so freaking excited for July? I am. The fourth (not the third, screw. the. third. I hate you.), anniversary (shut up in here. one year? already?), family reun (sup fam?), David Crowder. OMG. One good thing after another. So. So. So. excited.

6 loves:

  1. well hello Mrs. Secretary! Haha I'm glad you got a temp job. Save the permanent job for something you truly want to do.
    July seems like it is full of fun for you! I'm pretty excited for July too

  2. Hello working girl, congrats on the desk job. I remember when I first had a desk job; for some reason I felt like I was in the eighties and I would drive home every day listening to the smooth jazz radio station. Don't ask me why, it just felt right. Haha.

    You look super cute with those glasses on too!

    Oh, and to answer your question; smashed cauliflower is a healthier/low carb version of mashed potatoes.

  3. I've been thinking about busting out my old reading glasses. I got them back when I still lived with my aunt because I was on the computer all the time and it was killing my vision. What's changed? Nothing, but I still don't wear them...haha.

    I can't beleive it's already almost been one year! <3 And omg the 4th! My favorite holiday of the entire yearrrr.

  4. cute glasses! &yes I totally understand the stumbling over your words on the phone thing! AH! haha

  5. Hahaha, loved reading this! Good luck on your new job!!! I need to find one myself...

  6. sounds like an awesome job girlie! and you look super cute in your glasses!
    anniversarys, family reunions and David Crowder! YESSS! Love David Crowder!!
