Born To Spell

Still avoiding the Internet (well, mostly) here and trying to be an adult.  It's not much fun, but the house does seem to stay a lot better organized when I do this.  As in, everyone can find their shoes, the refrigerator isn't a total mess, and cleaning up for our Thursday morning world history class isn't a total nightmare...

Around here, that's progress.

Exciting news is that I might have a real job (vacation! personal days! benefits!) in the editing field, come January.  What with the kids all doing that growing-up thing and all, I really need something else useful to do in my life (because cleaning out the refrigerator and nagging the kids to clean their rooms just isn't as fulfilling as it sounds). Also, money is nice.  So, if you all could just keep your fingers crossed for me for the next, oh, 3 months, that would be helpful.

And if I could manage to keep from spending as though I actually have the job already, that would be helpful, too.  Meaning, no matter how cute they look on the Internet, no new camping trailer purchases will be happening around here for the foreseeable future.

Wow, I spelled foreseeable correctly. I am amazing. I have mentioned my brush with spelling bee fame, haven't I? Glory days, people - glory days.

And...that's all for tonight. I just wanted to touch base with you lovely readers and wish you a Happy Bruce Springsteen Birthday.  The man is 66.  I remember seeing him back in 1984 and thinking he was really old, because he was in his THIRTIES.



Yup, he looks ancient there. ANCIENT. Sometimes? I hate my 21-year-old stupid self.

  1. Dream job! Keeping fingers crossed for you.
    The problem with me working is that it bumped our college kid up into a higher bracket, so now his yearly college expenses are $5K more than my annual income. I'm pretty sure something is wrong with that equation, but it hurts me to think about it, so I just go purchase more fabric and beads.

  2. Fingers crossed! That first full-time job after being home for years is wonderful and exhausting all at the same time. Make sure the kids know how to cook so they can have dinner waiting for you when you get home! Best thing I ever did! Plus, they all love to cook now!

    Yeah, I remember when I thought people in their thirties were ancient...know I look at them and think how young they are.

  4. It's very, very, very hard to type with my fingers crossed, but I promise, I will cross them as soon as I finish typing. Good luck!

  5. I am starting to think that I should go back to a real job. I think with all of my part time stuff I might work less and make more if I do one thing. Good luck
