I’m still here, I promise!

It has been a wild month, guys, and I’m sorry I haven’t been around. I landed my dream job and along with that came adjusting to wearing heels every day, commuting, getting dressed every day, and putting in long days. I did find the Mecca of workplaces, though. They work as a team, and truly value their employees. No calls after work or on weekends. No mandatory late evenings throwing parties, or working on days off. Taking lunch or leaving at the end of the day isn’t seen as a sign of weakness. You work hard when you’re there, and when you aren’t there, you aren’t working. It’s a novel idea!

Along with accepting the job, though, has been a acclimating the kids back to a working mom schedule. And Hubbin has been phenomenal. He’s always been a good husband, but he has taken care of the children, getting them up and feeding them and off to their prospective places, even though I leave after him, so I can plot my best route to take. He picks them up in the evening and feeds them before I even get home. One day that I’d had a bad day, I came home to my favorite Japanese takeout order sitting in the counter. Other times, it’s been home cooked meals. And some days I ate and fell into bed, and he did all the work. One day, the house was immaculate when I got home. It had always been straightened up when I got home, but this time it was immaculate. I think I cried. He is the best man I have ever known, and I loves the way he loves me. He even agreed to let me buy an iPhone 5 out of contract.

And you thought I embarrassed my sister…

So I was thinking back about times that I embarrass people, and there is one that stands out in my mind completely. Not that she’s the only other person that I embarrassed, but probably the one that was embarrassed and/or horrified/humiliated most often.

She was my boss, and she had to have regretted immediately having hired me. Actually, I know she did. Before I even started, we left together on a business trip. I talk when I’m uncomfortable (and bored, and happy, and sad, and…) so I must have talked her ear off. When we got to the hotel, it was brand new and had just opened. They booked us in a room and we went to get ice, and that’s when it happened; she walked into a pane of glass that was so clean you couldn’t see it.

Now, if you’ve ever been with me when I’ve been pulled over, you know that I also laugh when I’m uncomfortable, and it’s completely, 100% uncontrollable.
