upside~down

That's how things have been around here, but that's not always a bad thing.

I got a job. A full time one. With benefits and whatnot. Woohoo!

I sent my resume back in October. By the time they contacted me I had forgotten about it. It all happened really fast. I interviewed and was offered the position the same day. I was able to secure after~school and daycare the next day. I had a week for things like last minute appts and stuff before I started yesterday. It's been an adjustment for everyone. I now get up at 5 and DH gets the kids ready, making sure everyone is where they need to be on time. The boys LOVE the after~school program but Isaiah is unsure about daycare. I think the biggest adjustment is for him and me since we are used to being home together all day. But he's doing well and making new friends.

Another thing that has turned my life upside down is carpal tunnel. I found out that's what's been making my fingers numb and cold, and it's imposssible to spin. I can still knit though, and have been knitting a lot.

I wanted to show you some progress pics and some new pics of the kids today but something happened that (once again) kinda turned everything upside~down. Sometimes it's really amazing how shitty people can be, and even more amazing are the shitty excuses these shitty people can make to try and explain away their behavior. So my head hurts and I can't even begin to think about putting together a proper post. It's just that I looked at how long it's been since I posted and wanted to give a teeny update. It's been a rough month (the baby was sick) and a busy month (DH and I celebrated 10 years of marital bliss(!)on the 15th and the boys have a joint BDay party on Saturday)so I haven't been around as much as I'd like. Thing will change once we all get settled.

Either tomorrow or Friday I will be back with a story. A story of ridiculously shitty behavior and how some people feel like it's ok to treat others like crap because they pretend to not know any better. A story of why my head hurts.

I'll also have some knitting and maybe a little more on my job :o)

Congratulations on the anniversary and the new job! I'm bummed that this means we can't get together during the week though. I'm serious about being able to help you out with the kids. Just gimme a call.

Shitty people...This I've gotta read/hear.

Congratulations on the new job! Happy Anniversary too. Sorry to hear about the carpal tunnel. I've got it too, it's such a pain in the butt.

Wow, a lot has happened. Congrats on the anniversary, the job, and no congrats on the carpal. A friend of mine had surgery for that and it improved it so much. I know eventually I will get the carpal as I used to work on a computer 8-10 hours a day and I got to the point where I couldn't sign my own name.

I am curious about your post on shittiness. I am glad though you are doing well.

Congrats on the anniversary & the job! Sorry about the carpal tunnel, but at least you can still knit. BTW, I love your new banner- baby toe and yarn, what's not to love?

Sorry to hear about the shitty people! I'm not surprised the boys like after care - more time to play! Hey, we do 10 years this weekend!
