First 2 Weeks of Adulthood....

Well, since we last chatted, I've officially started my job and gotten my first paycheck!  In true Kristen fashion, I thought I would share with you the top 10 things I learned in my first 2 weeks at the new job: the good, the bad, and the ugly.  :)  (there wasn't any ugly...I just couldn't think of any other word to fill in there that fit.)

1.  When you think you've seen it all, you're wrong.

2.  Baby food looks, smells, and probably tastes like vomit.

3.  I have a big nose....according to a kid. (I think they're completely wrong)

4.  Over achieving can really get you places.

5.  Sitting on your butt and doing nothing....yet getting paid....isn't nearly as fun as it sounds.

6.  Having a company email address means you're LEGIT.

7.  Having the first kid that you see in a session pee himself makes for instant office jokes at your expense.

8.  Living 5 minutes from the office allows at least 30 more minutes of sleep each morning.

9.  You can never have enough activities planned for a session...especially when a hyperactive 3 kid is involved.

And finally....

10.  Getting a check for doing what you love is probably the best feeling in the entire world....other than being in love.  :)

Weekend Away....

I'm headed off on a girls weekend away with 2 of my beautiful bridesmaids.  We're headed to Canton to do some girly shopping- craft shopping.  Typical stuff that guys would cringe at the thought of participating in.

I'm glad to be getting away this weekend and try to begin the healing process about Snuggles.  I never in my life knew that it would be this hard to lose a pet.  Ever.

Pictures and details from Canton soon.  My real grown up job starts on Monday....wooo!  Bring on the paycheck!  It's probably best that I'm going to Canton without any feasible income....that way I won't come home more broke than I left.  :)

For Snuggles....


Time to let me go my friend,

Because my life no-one can mend,

Its better to let me go this way,

Than watch me suffer night and day.

I'm happy to go, my time has come,

My quality of life is no longer fun,

Ive been so ill, so its not a bad thing,

To let me go forever resting.

Stay with me till I drift away,

Fast asleep forever I pray,

To relieve me from suffering and pain,

What more can I ask from my best friend.

Don't be sad, I'll be free from pain,

Never to be ill ever again,

I know you'll miss me being there,

But all the memories you have to share.

Thankyou for being my best friend,

And all my needs that you did tend,

Try not to be sad, try not to cry,

Now's the time to say goodbye...

We're going on 48 hours and it's still not any better.  I still cry at the drop of a hat.  Gah why is this so hard.
