~an update & a random survey~

Update #1 - I got the job offer for the Bilingual Recruiter, which is a work from home job. YAY!!!! No more daycare! I put my notice in yesterday and will start w/new job on 4/18 likely with a one day trip to Raleigh, NC. I will not miss getting up at 5am either!! Thank goodness those days are almost over and were short-lived...of course, I'm still getting up in the middle of the night with the little guy but that's OK. :-)

Update #2 - O will not be going to boot camp in 40-some days as he injured his knee a while back and needs surgery before he can go. There is no new departure date but it will likely be pushed back to September time frame. I'll have to update my countdown with an approximate date.

Update #3 - I want to send a THANK YOU out to Dawn for helping me post the other day while I was held hostage in my workplace w/no access to blogs. Dawn also ROCKS because she introduced me to GOOGLE READER which I CAN see @ work. Hooray!! It is like Bloglines but WAY better. I can read blogs, but I can't comment, BUT I can 'star' them for later and comment when I get home. So cool!! Check it out!!

Update #4 - Getting ready for Mary to come this weekend. So excited!! It should be LOTS of fun and it will be SO nice to see her since we haven't seen each other since August!!!

Update #5 - I had a not-so-fun visit to the OB yesterday. I will spare you the details but I learned that I have an inverted uterus which ultimately makes certain procedures difficult and more painful than the norm. Oh lucky me!!

And now this randomness post swiped from Dawn's blog...

1. What's your favorite ice cream flavor?
Mint Chocolate Chip - hands down. If it's made by Stroh's - even better...but I think that's only found in Michigan. Boohoo!

2. What shampoo do you use?

3. How do you like your eggs?
Scrambled. Deviled is good too!

4. What's the first thing you do when you get online?
Check my email!

5. What is your favorite tv show?
Like 98% of the country right now - Grey's Anatomy. But I am also enjoying "Deliver Me" on Bravo (it's about 3 OBs/Friends and their practice).

6. Which do you prefer, the sunrise or the sunset?
They are both nice although I rarely see either these days.

7. When is the last time you went to the mall?
Last Saturday - a family trip, O, MIL and big 'ol baby stroller leading the way.

8. What was the last food that you ate?

9. What is your favorite animal?
Meow - the entire feline family.

10. Do you collect anything?
yes...Pluto figures (the rarer the better).scrapbook supplies (I say 'collect' cuz I haven't been using them lately).

Hey, that's awesome news on the job! I'm so glad that it all worked out for you. I'm going to have to look into google reader. I can't access blogs from work either. :-( Sucks.

Awww, I am just glad you like Google Reader. =) You already know I am happy for you about the new job.

What kind of Sunchips? I love the Garden Salsa flavor.
