Saved from the post about the suckiness

8 Dec

Sometimes I amaze myself. I just wrote, and almost posted, a blog post detailing the reasons I hate my job. Hating my job is that thing I didn’t want to talk about on the internets where anyone could come find me because I thought it would be ridiculous to do so but now that it’s Monday, I could care less.  In the midst of writing that post though, I realized I’m being a snot because at least I have a damn job. Lots of people don’t right now and for me to complain is just silly. Plus, and this is the really good news, I GOT THE JOB I APPLIED AND INTERVIEWED FOR A FEW WEEKS AGO. Which means, basically, YAY!

BUT, holy crap is my to-do list full and holy crap are we going to be busy for the entire month of December plus there’s that whole MOVING INTO A NEW HOUSE thing to remember about…here’s just a sample of the tasks I need to complete this week:

  • Say yes to job offer and complete all the necessary paperwork
  •  Become a homeowner on Thrusday and not pull my hair out with absolute fear and terror and excitment and glee
  • Give notice of my intended departure at my current job
  • Make something delicious to take to the holiday social for my husband’s work which will soon also be my work (yes, we’ll be working together)
  • Attend that holiday social on Friday
  • Attend a promotion ceremony on Saturday
  • Buy a refrigerator
  • Make final decisions on paint colors and start painting the house
  • Set up the Christmas tree
  • Start moving our stuff out of the apartment and into the (beautiful and wonderful) house
  • Purchase/make and wrap Christmas gifts
  • Maintain small thread of sanity between all the house-buying, new-job-starting, holiday-festivity-attending, refrigerator-buying insanity

Also, why is every women around me suddenly pregnant? Is it something in the water?  Should I not be drinking the water?  Will the Brita protect me?  I am not in the least bit ready for the babies yet so please, please, don’t let the water be contaminated with pregnancy.

    Don’t drink the waaa-teeer.

    YAYAYAYAY for new job! Also, I thought you had decided I was weird or something bc I hadn’t heard back from you (til I read your email today) so I am relieved.

    You will be a busy bee in December but this is all GREAT STUFF. I am happy to offer coffee breaks or hanging outs or christmas decorating or painting–you just let me know. Also, I’m fully off on “break” from Dec 22-New Years 🙂
