Yeah, There Are Other Changes in the Works Too

Like the fact that this is no longer my office.

I had a funny night last night. I say that a lot, I suppose, but it's often true. Sometimes funny means fall-off-the-couch, stitch-in-your side laughing, sometimes it's just odd. Or interesting. Mostly to me, not necessarily anyone else. Last night was like that. I went to see Kevin's band, Widower, which I, predictably, loved. That pedal steel just gets me every time. Still, by the end of the night, I was really ready to be home and done.

I fell asleep thinking about a bunch of things, but primarily about how convenient it is that I am just now getting tired of being 23 again. I've noticed this the last couple times I've gone out - around 12:30 I am just done, ready to go home, the magic spell has worn off and I am content to turn into a 35 year old pumpkin again.

On Monday I will be a working pumpkin again. That's right, I've been holding out on you all. I am once again gainfully employed, and I have to tell you, I'm pretty excited about it. I'd be even more excited about it if the fall clothing that's out in stores right now wasn't a mixture of maternity looking gear and faux mod retro. Boo to all that! I'm sticking with the pencil skirts.

Here are the things I'm excited for: being a morning regular at the coffee shop again, instead of an all-day regular, being able to walk to work if I want to, wearing pencil skirts and cashmere, working with scientists, and being part of an organization that is working to prevent, treat and eliminate pediatric diseases.

Congratulations, but now that you're going to working I only have 27 reasons to be jealous of you instead of 28. :)

Congratulations and welcome back to the world of the 9to5er. We've missed you and your stylish work wear.

I am still working on your soap opera name for this job...
I've got to consult the archives.

Oh my god, yes, all maternity clothes right now. Anyone want a free baby doll shirt because I yesterday a customer asked when I was due (and that was the 2nd time!) so I have two shirts up for grabs because I'll never wear them again - I'm such a fashion victim!

Just think how lucky I am with all the maternity styled clothes! Take one for the team!

I am super-excited for you and your new J.O.B.

And I am sure that the pencil skirts and cashmere will have many hearts aflutter. As always.

just don't be going near my Dr. Danielson with those pencil skirts and cashmere. He's Chocolate McDreamy.
