Life and Times of a Mommy(:

Happy Birthday to Meeeeeeee!!!

1 year baby!!!

1 year baby!!!

Well actually it’s my WordPress-iversary. It doesn’t feel like one year… Probably because I suck and can’t write regular posts… But seriously, thanks to everyone who’s been here for the ride!! (No worries, it’s going to continue!!)

So, I have great news!!! As of September 9, I will officially have a job!!! I will roll over onto company time instead of the temp agency’s time. I will also get a $4 raise!!! I will be making AMAZING money!! The look on hubby’s face when I told what I was making was hilarious. I won’t tell you what I’m making because I’m trying to keep this as confidential as possible. (I’m sure you guys understand.) But I will say I’m making $3 more than my husband and $3.30 more than a friend that is living with us. So. Needless to say I’m pretty excited.

Sadly, I couldn't get a good Carlton dance.. This was the best I could get for a happy dance.

Sadly, I couldn’t get a good Carlton dance.. This was the best I could get for a happy dance.

 

But, of course, it’s month end so my happy dance wasn’t that enthusiatic. Thursday of last week, I asked my boss if she needed help with anything. She handed me some stuff to veryify VIN and unit numbers on. Then I had to match them up with this peice of paper, highlight the numbers, and FedEx them. By Friday. (They got sent yesterday.) I couldn’t find the numbers anywhere so my boss printed of the sheets and it took be about an hour and a half to find them all and highlight them. Then last Friday I was informed that I have to clean up someone else’s mess with overdue invoices. Yipee!!! …. Not. I just through away a buch a few weeks ago because I was told it’s ok. Now I get to chase them all down again. This is all on top of everything else. But I will stop complaining now… Sorry….

In other news.  A friend of hubby’s that was stationed in North Carolina in the Marines has moved in with us. He’s a great guy, when his wife isn’t causing problems… Him and her lived together there but she came running back here without him. So he is living with us and they are about to go through a huge custody battle and probably a divorce. So there’s that fun. But my husband finally has a friend home that I actually get along with so I’m not complaining. Too much… ;D

Well, the hubster just got done cooking so I’m going to go stuff my face like a fatty now (: Ohhhhh! And I’ve also started running!!! I ran a half mile last thursday and 1.3 miles Sunday. Ok…I walked some of it to. But still, it’s the effort that counts!! Hopefully I will get to run tomorrow with the girls at work. I haven’t ran all week /: I’m a slacker!! But, guys, have a safe and happy 3 day weekend!! And don’t drink too much!!!\

The most awful thing in the world just happened!!!

I’m not even playing right now. I ran out of wine!!! I had a super rough day at work and all I want is a full bottle of wine to take the edge off!! And I’m broke and alcohol-less!!! Waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh………………..

Good….

 So, I thought I was going to have to work a 3 to midnight job. (Plenty of time to write blog posts right?!) I was told on like Tuesday of last week that my last day would be last Friday because there was someone hired for the position I was (am) in. So, I got al set to start training for the three to midnight job. Then, Friday, my boss was called into her boss’ office with an HR person. (By the way, I worked with my boss at Wal-Mart and graduated high school with her son, so we are super close.) She came out chuckling and one of the other ladies said it was never good when she came out of there laughing. Well, she stopped at the other ladies desk, said something in a low voice and then came to my desk. About the time she got to my desk, the other lady goes “well then it was meant to be!!” So, I knew right away what was going on. The position was filled tentaviley, meaning as long as this other chick passed her drug test and back ground check, she would have the job. What my boss could tell me was she was offered and accepted the position, but somethin’ somewheres didn’t work out and she didn’t get the job. I did. So. After I work my 72 days, roughly, I will be full time! I would tell you the name, but a) I’m not sure many people know the name of the place and b) it’s never good to share the name of your office on a blog, especially if you have had a stressful day. Like today.

Awww! How cute!! It has lights in it!! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut it's empty...

Awww! How cute!! It has lights in it!! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut it’s empty…

Since I was all set to go to another department, they had all my information and computer system set up and ready to go. (I had over 750 e-mails from the other department. Most of which I wasn’t even supposed to get over there. They just have like everyone on every e-mail list. That was just between the 17th and today…) So, we had to get every thing changed over to the department I’m staying at. Easy-peasy leamon squeasy! Right? ! WRONG!!! Why, you ask? Oh, you know, because it’s the corporate world! Hevan forbid something be easy there. So, as of 5 this afternoon whenever I left work, I couldn’t access any of my drives. (You know Q drive, H drive, L drive, blah blah blah.) Well, I could if I signed onto the computer using someone else’s signon. But then, I coulnd’t access my own e-mail.

Friday when I left work, the tables I use to input a bunch of info had been disconnected because they had been freezing. So, I couldn’t finish the last 2 pages of information I had to enter on Friday. For the first, like, 3 hours of work, all I did was look through notes and try to figure out what I needed to retype and what I didn’t. (I have a book of someone else’s notes with confusing writing so I’m trying to make my own book with less confusing notes.) Then, I had a stack of invoices that I had to key. I seriously got a manila envelope of nothing but invoices from one company. 29 invoices in this envelope. That’s not including the FedEx envelope from another company full of invoices, and all the other invoices that came in single envelopes. So. Right now, as I type this, I have about half an inch of invoices that need to be entered. Another stack about the same height that needs to be copied, sent to another department, and filed. Another stack of stuff that I have to get unit numbers on. And, yet another stack of stuff that needs to be filed. Ohhh.. And yet another stack of stuff that I couldn’t do today because I couldn’t access my tables. Awesome right?!

But anyway…… I GOT A JOB!!!!!! One that will eventually have benefits and amazing pay and job oppurtunities!!! And bosses that tooootally kill my caolorie counting. Friday, my boss’ boss bought me and two other ladies Chick-Fil-A. (If you don’t know what Chick-Fil-A is then I beg you, please please please find a chance to eat at one!!) He also bought like the entire office blizzards from Dairy Queen!!! I’m so excited!!!! Like you don’t even know how excited!!!! Wooo!! Go me!!!!

 

 

P.S. Guys. Let me know if the first picture doesn’t load!!

Sorry for the absence!

So. I lost my job Friday before last. Sadly, because I really loved that office. But, the next Tuesday, I was at another office. Guys. I swear I needed a degree to do this job… It was crazy… But I was offered a different job doing something a LOT easier making a dollar more. It’s not much, but it’s worth it! The job I was doing was just not for me. So. I’m going to go back to being a receptionist. Which is ok with me!

That job was just a temp job, but I was hoping they would hire me on. I loved all the people that I worked with and I loved my job. Hopefully I will find another office as great as that one. I didn’t take it as hard as I thought I would. My husband even mentioned how proud of me he was. Which meant a lot. Considering how I handle a lot of things. My new job is another temo but it starts on Tuesday!!

My "congrats" card to myself (:

By the way guys. You need to watch that zombie movie called “Warm Bodies”. It’s a pretty great movie!! We are watching it right now. It’s the only zombie movie I’m really willing to watch because it’s funny. Well….We would be watching it if Redbox would bother to make sure their movies weren’t all messed up before they let other people rent them…. We have missed some major parts of this movie because it keeps skipping… Definitley lodging a complaint… We rented the movie “Take Me Home Tonight” and it wouldn’t even play in my Playstation 2. We never returned it and didn’t watching it until like 6 or 8 months later. I think they have offically lost my business…

He is actually pretty cute without all that zombie make-up on!!

And also we went to Chuck E Cheese today.. In my opinion, the only thing good about that place is ski ball, but even that sicked this time. But. My step brother and I got mustaches!! I’m going to spare you the humiliation of seeing me wearing a mustache but I will show you the utter cuteness of my little man (the oldest) in a mustache. (If you absolutely must see me in a mustache just check out my twitter. It’s there.)

Now isn't that the cutest thing you've ever seen?!  Except its a tad crooked...
