So...guess who got a new job


I gave my two weeks notice to Best Buy today and I start my new job with the great State of Oregon on July 6th. I got a job with the Department of Justice - (and ironically enough) Division of Child Support Services.

I get 40 hours a week, insurance for me and the kids (paid for again by the great State of Oregon) lots of vacation, sick and personal time and I get a 90 day raise, yearly raises and cost of living adjustment raises.

I am so excited I can't even get the smile off my face.

I have to spend the next two weeks training my replacement and relaxing, because finally all my hours of filling out ten page state applications and answering essay questions finally paid off.


Thursday, June 15, 2006 I've given it a lot of thought

and I've made a lot of changes in my life. I mean I missed amost a whole two months of blogging, and besides the attack of the allergies, the coughing so hard I popped the cartilege in my rib and then the falling over the dog gate and banging up my knee, my daughter's trip to urgent care when her eyes swelled up like golf balls, the new tattoos (pictures later) and being sucked into the MySpace/YouTube world of fun and silliness, I've put some things in order.

From here on out, I intend to blog at least a few times a week, if not more. I start my oil painting class next Monday, I dropped out of PSU and took "W"s in all my classes, save one, and found out I have kidney stones.

I started working out and I'm finally interviewing for other jobs.

I'm getting my life more settled and am ready for summer fun. Camping, traveling and going to Disneyworld with my Baby B.

I also plan on redoing my blog look. But that will take a day or two....maybe this weekend or next.

And I'm looking forward to reading up on my favorite blogs again.

Right now I have to cut hair.....for B and his friend (little hint: if you have hair cutting skills and don't really want to spend time every other week cutting a bunch of guys hair while they sit around and drink wine and play xBox 360.....don't tell anyone you have mad haircutting skills)

Just so you know.
