What is it about working with children that makes me so happy? I swear it makes the day go so much easier. I have found that jobs that I get to interact with kids are jobs that I am able to stay with. Even in the case of apartment hell job, sometimes it was worth it just to see those kids....but only sometimes lol. And honestly, though I'm not going to be making mad money in this job, is there anything better than being in a store surrounded by toys? That just freaking rocks! Not to mention, there's something entirely satisfying in knowing that if you are having a crappy day, you may be able to alleviate that with a little shootout or sword fight with a kid in the aisles *grin*. I'm so looking forward to those days.
I am content with being able to work again. It is going to be so nice to have some time away from the house, away from the responsibility and daily grind of chasing a toddler. Don't get me wrong, I adore my child with a passion and miss the hell out of his beautiful face when I'm away, but being able to get away for just a little while is totally awesome. And knowing that being away is actually bringing money into your household? Priceless.
I bought easter candy for lil man and Austin's easter baskets last night and went a little crazy. It's the first year that I'm making one for Lukas and the first year in a couple that we didn't just break down and buy a premade crap basket for Austin, so I'm guessing it's allowed. Sadly, I find myself already super drawn to the candy. I'm trying to stay away, but there's only hours between me and a miniature snickers I'm guessing. Thank goodness that if you went crazy buying candy that you have extra just for mama. *laugh*
And in other news, I'm finding myself irked at my buddy Chris who I've now emailed twice and he doesn't have the courtesy to email me back. He waits until those rare biweekly moments when I can actually catch him on yahoo messenger to respond to them. That's just crap. I say, if we hardly ever are online at the same time, and I actually make the effort to email you, then you better by god respond especially since I know he's online at work all the time and can take a moment to say something. Just anything. So Chris, know that I'm sending you psychic daggers until you say something ...grrr.
Lastly, I was going through my friend's list on here and noticed that somehow, someway, people I used to have as mutual were no longer friended on my account, so I added a bunch of you back, so now I can catch up on you again now that I'm more active again. In going through that process I found a new person had friended me, and just me that I do not know in the least. Seems strange, but it was nice in a way to see that someone out there thinks I have something of interest to say. So hello new friend *waves*. If I bore you with the tedious little details of my life, feel free to leave at anytime. *smile*
