Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Suddenly Employed



Well, what should I toot about today?! I've done nothing spectacular this week. Let's see...My realtor suggested that I paint my son's puke green bedroom a more neutral color, so after plenty of procrastinating, I finally completed ONE WALL!! Yes, his room is slightly less puke green now. And since I'm starting a job tomorrow, it may be weeks before I paint another wall.

Wait a minute, did I saw "job?" Yes, I did say JOB!! I'm going to WORK tomorrow. I wasn't even looking for a job, buy one fell right into my lap and beginning tomorrow, I will be a preschool teacher at my daughter's school!! Yay Me!! I'll work 4 half days a week and Glynis can go right in with me! And this happened just in the nick of time. Next month I will be starting payments on a 3rd set of braces!!

There you have it. This is plenty to toot about. Now it's your turn. Have fun!

I've never linked here before, but I'm a moron and I put my name down, but not the project. Whoops! Sorry!

Braces? Yikes, I'm not there yet with my kids, but I don't even want to think about those bills!

christy rose said...

Oops. I'm so sorry. I accidentally called my project the wrong name. #37. It is actually a birdie shirt. It links to the right post but the name is misleading. So sorry.

Congrats and good luck on the new job. Sounds like you're gong to be pretty busy. Thanks for hosting again.

Molly @ A Bit O' Shine said...

Hurray for just in time jobs!

I love on decorating shows how they always paint an entire room in a snap and it's because they don't tell you they have like a million people working on it. Painting always takes me so much longer than I think it will.

Congrats on the job!

Annie @ The House That Jade Built said...
