Where Have I Been?

I've been bad about blogging. Confession: I have this weird OCD obsession that I don't feel like I can blog until I caught up on reading all of my list of bloggers {which is a LOT} Sometimes that means I only have time to read and not write. I really need to learn to get over this, but until I do, between posts you can catch tidbits about life over at my Twitter

On top of reading blogs, I have been spending a lot of time with family, friends and a new job. Lets break some of this down a little.

HB has another week until classes start, so we are soaking up the last bit of total freedom. I can't say that we are all that exciting, but he has been showing me around my new home and we have just been enjoying some quality family time, HB, Bear, Gbear and I. Also, we are lucky to live near his family, that includes Gbear's GeeGees {great grandma's} and my MIL, FIL and BIL. So we have had lovely gatherings including an excellent Memorial Day BBQ and a trip to the lake. Some of HB's childhood friends are still in the area too, so we had a lovely married couple night out awhile back {wow, I really need to start keeping up better!}

So that covers family and friends, now to the job. I got super duper lucky and was hired on the spot to a wonderful non profit. While this job is super part time and the pay isn't that fantastic, it is an excellent opportunity. Since I previously worked at a museum and have pondered going back for a Master's in either Museum Studies or Art Administration, I really feel like this is a great step. And like I mentioned, it is part time, so lil Gbear will not have to go into daycare. The days I work, HB has off. While I only work part time, the training has been EXTENSIVE. They take worker orientation seriously! But it really has helped me feel prepared for my first day of work {which technically will be shadowing, more Training!} If nothing else, this will pretty much pay for my student loans, which I have always felt horrible having HB pay for {I know, we're married, we share our debts, but it's really a post for another day}

Whew, ok, so that's what I've been up to. I've been so happy to see a plethora of homecomings and all kinds of other excitement!

I think a lot of people have been slacking on posting. Most of the time, it's all I can do is keep caught up reading.

Glad to hear you are having an awesome sumer so far!

Stopping by from the round-up. Congrats on your new job. I like having lots of training so I know what it is I'm suppose to be doing. I hate those first days where I'm just thrown in and I feel like twiddling my thumbs would have been a more productive way to spend my time.

You have been so busy! I feel like I need to catch up on my reader before I write, too. Thanks for joining the Roundup!
