Why do I work?

Thursday, January 22, 2009

I have had people ask me, "If you were a stay at home mom, and your family learned to live on one income, then why would you ever want to go back to work?"

I work because it is good for my daughters to see their mom working. It is good to see that a woman can do what I do. They will see me using my intelligence to support our family, they will see someone that is proud of working hard and a job well done. They see that a woman can take care of herself, I have the most wonderful husband, but I could live my life if I didnt have him. I need for my daughters to know that deep down they are Self Reliant, Self Sustaining, Intelligent women.

That is why I work.

The best Days!

Here is a picture of my dog. His name is Vinny. We are all packed up and ready to go camping. Do you think he is excited? I know - he has a face only a mom could love. He is a pound puppy.

No personal Photo

Hi there! I know you are all dying to see what I really look like, I promise to work on that soon. I was thinking that maybe I could get one of the "Professional Photographers" that I work with to take a picture of me and actually make it look good! That will be a project I will be working on! Lets see how talented they really are.

Dieting Sucks

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

So, how many of you are working dilegently on losing weight right now? Is this one of your resolutions? Well, I am here to tell you, I have found the secret to losing weight- I know for sure this is the ticket. I know because I read it in an article the other day. All you need to do is take in less calories than you use in one day. No kidding! You know, as I was sitting there reading that, I was thinking if only I had heard that years ago, just think about how skinny I could be!!

Are you serious? I mean really....serious? Yes, we all know that. Its eating so few calories that is the hard part. (You're saying...yeah!) I am here to tell you that I LOVE food, I love it. There is no way around it. I love to cook it, grow it, cut it, serve it, and eat it. I love how it looks and smells. I just love it. I even love healthy food- yup veggies, fruits, weird whole grains like Quinoa- all of that. Then why am I not thin? Well, in case someone forgot to tell you while you were reading that little chart in the Doctors office- dont fret, we are all different. We dont all fit into the mold that the "Physically Fit" Doctors call appropriate. And I am starting to learn that its okay. I dont fit into ANY mold. None of them, not the proper weight, not the proper height, I certainly dont fit into any clothing mold, and even my personality is a surprise to most people. I am who I am. Love me.

So, here it is, my first official post. Well, most of you know me and who I am but if you didn't know me, I am an Accountant. That is what I like to call it, I also currently carry the title of Human Resource Manager.

Ok, ok, I know what you are thinking...is this going to be all about Financial Statements/W2's and Fiscal year jargon? No, don't worry, I am an accountant and I love it (more on that later) and I currently work for the Coolest Place!! No, seriously! When you come to my office, you would think you are walking onto the set of Friends. In fact, When I interviewed for the job, I went home and thought "I am totally not cool enough to work there!" They are the funkiest set of folks I have worked with! Have I wet your whistle? Want to know where I work??

I am surrounded by Artsy people. How I ever got in the door I will never know. I will just keep on coming to work and maybe they wont notice they hired a GEEK like me who likes to reconcile checking accounts, and balancing debits to credits. If you like to look at seriously cool pictures then you can click right on over to the Image Studios link right now. Don't worry sweetie- I will be here for you when you return!
