e A little update

Today marks the third week at my new job. Great boss, great co-workers, great work... I couldn't be happier! I couldn't be busier either though.

I wasn't able to give my part time job much notice when I switched to my new job so I (stupidly) offered to work in the evenings and do what I can to help out until my boss finds a replacement for me. It's the third week and he still haven't found someone, scratch that, hasn't hired anybody yet. To have found someone would imply that my boss is actually looking, something that I am seriously questioning at this point. I was tempted to google search what the unemployment percent is here in Louisville, but I dont have to do that to know THERE ARE TONS OF PEOPLE LOOKING FOR JOBS. How there is still no replacement is beyond me.

So, I'm out the door by 8:15AM. PJ gets dropped off at day care and I am at work by 9AM. I get off work at 5PM, grab PJ from daycare, and quickly get to my part time job. I'll do everything I can in about one or two hours (juggling work and PJ), staying until 7:30PM at the latest. I then getting home around 8:00PM, rush to get dinner made, feed PJ - oh and myself too, get PJ a bath, scoot him off to bed, and of course there is always cleaning and laundry to be done.. PHEW! Really, I think I could have saved some time writing all that out and instead used one word: exausting. Regardless, PJ and I are both adjusting well and things have been going smoothly!

I've had little 'me' time, but the days have been flying by and I can't believe it's almost middle of October already. The weather is telling me differently, though. 90 degrees is NOT fall weather. Thanks, global warming, thanks a lot.

Oh, Oh! Great news about school! November 10th I have orientation (for the Spring semester)! I'm going to be working my full time job and then attending class afterward so I have a feeling the already busy schedule is going to become even busier (that is seriously possible!? sigh). Not that i'll work my part time job when I'm in school - if I did I might as well buy my tombstone and coffin now. Oh and maybe a life insurance policy so that PJ is set when I die. Wait, this is just wrong. Moving on...

On the video game front... not much going on what so ever. I reached level cap (level 80) in WoW, though! That's a pretty big accomplishment (if you ask me). Ironically, after I hit 80 I've had no desire to play. And without Halo Reach, playing any xbox game seems pointless (since I'm a social gamer and 99% of the friends on my friends list are glued to Reach).

On October 2nd I was able to make it to Chicago for the infamous annual Oktoberfest Pary. That was a blast, as usual. But I have to admit it was a little sad being there without Dave. Also, this past weekend I babysat three kids (so I had four including PJ) and we went to the Louisville Science Center. That is a stinking neat place. PJ being whiney, grumpy, and impossible to deal with while being there with three other kids, however, was not so neat. None the less, it was a good time and I'm glad we went.

How about those Redskins though!!! Winning season for once! *knock on wood* Going to a local bar on Sunday evening to hang out with all my Colts friends next Sunday night. Dun dun dun!!!!!! I'd love to see the Redskins come in the game as the underdog and beat them.

Well, I think I've rambled and bounced around topics enough for one day. More to come in the future.


  1. Nikki.

    I don't know how the heck you do it all, and still can stand up. Id be passed out somewhere.

    As for Reach- we will be buying it. So you can borrow it ;)

    And as always thanks for keeping the kids. You are amazing!!!

  2. Haha, you have THREE kids, a husband, and work! I'm pretty sure you're busier than I am!! xoxo

  3. Dang girl, you been busy. Congrats on everything! School, work, Oktoberfest beers, Redskins, everything! Take your boss not finding a replacement as a compliment. He must really appreciate you. You should ask for a raise, then he might find someone. :D

    90 degrees!? It's going to be 40 tonight and maybe 60 tomorrow. Have a great weekend!
