first day on the job

I like my job! Wheee!

I walked in, and my new boss had a vase with tulips for me on my desk. The work is good and interesting. My office window (Office! MY office! I've never had one all to myself!) overlooks the woods [a rarity in a metropolitan area!] and it was blissfully quiet. Aaahhh. As much as I love the kids I taught, I didn't have to hush ONE SINGLE PERSON ALL DAY. Nirvana.

[this from the woman who shushed so much she stopped realizing she was shushing.]

In less happy news, hubby is finishing up grad school and is stressed to the max with work and school obligations. Only 3 months to go (HALLELUJAH!), but I think that the end stretch is the hardest. I wish that I could do more to help than make dinner and rub his feet. (gross, but cultivates awesome good will!) When I daydream about winning the lottery, my favorite part of the daydream [even better than the "Only a million dollars? Heck, I'll take TWO!] is walking in to Hubby's office and telling him that he can quit because he has become, officially, a kept man. THAT, my friends, would be awesome.
