So I went back to work today. I say back because I decided to go to the old law firm…not the one that I hated, the one that drove me crazy. The good news is, I am in a different department so I am learning new things, which is nice. I think I will like it and besides, it’s a paycheck and I can pretty much make my own hours within reason. YAY! I will probably start the insurance class this weekend or next week sometime so that should be interesting as well.
It was weird to see everyone again at the old firm. In a way, we were like a big dysfunctional family. They have definitely seen me at my worst, and best. I mean I was there for over 3 years with the same people that are there now (for the most part). Sandy gave me a big ol hug when I got there. It made me feel pretty good, especially after feeling so crappy the past couple months. I am pretty excited about what happens next with the whole insurance thing and it’s really nice to know that I will have an income in the meantime.
I have been watching an unhealthy amount of makeover shows lately. I think it has to do with my need for shopping and the fact that I am on a tight budget and can’t really go for myself (even though i did get those sandals for $13 at Target….oopsy)…so I watch these diamonds in the rough be transformed before my very eyes and behold! I didn’t spend a penny.
I also got a library card again. I hadn’t had one since school and even then I only got class related books because that was all I had time for. But now, with the new library right across the street from me, I am really excited. I already checked out 3 cookbooks, an old favorite and a bird-flu preparedness guide….just in case….and by the way, I am not kidding when I say they suggested recycling urine with Tamaflu in it to save on dosages….yikes. Hopefully I won’t need it.
Oh, 3 more things. Good for Nicole Kidman, RIP Aaron Spelling and despite everything, I DO think Angelina is doing good things in Africa. Thank you and goodnight.
