OK Saturday isn't that exciting of a day for me as it is part of my work week but at least the work week is over halfway through now! (It was a good week because I worked Monday and Friday as opposed to just this weekend). Another bonus on the work week front is that some of the servers quite and I now have to position of back up server secured. I don't know if I'll get to train for that or if they'll just throw me in. My guess is they'll just throw me in but we'll see.

The main obstacle that I'm facing right now is no bike. I went to see Social Network last night at one of the 2nd run theaters in town (good movie by the way) and my key broke so I can't get my bike unlocked. I am going to get a hand from one of my coworkers tomorrow after work and we will, hopefully be able to get it free. Wish me luck on that one.

My main shout out today goes to whole grain pancakes with dried apricots and walnuts inside. WHAT?! Who knew they'd be so delicious? Tomorrow, I think I'll try another combo with whole grain as my basis again. The benefit of working at a pancake restaurant is that you can get pancakes pretty much whenever you want them I guess.

That's pretty much it. Hope you're weekend is going well.

Snow, Hey!

So, I thought it didn't get cold enough here for snow but today I was proven wrong. It's nothing like you east coasters have been experiencing but late last night, or early this morning, we did get a little dusting of snow. Here are my pics to prove it.

You know, snow's not so annoying when there's only a little tiny bit of it. I, actually, kind of like it. I just wish it could be warmer in our house.

Working woman

Hi guys,
As you who have read my recent posts or talked to me on the phone, as of late, will know, I am honing in on some job opportunities. I've got an ice cream shop waiting for me, I applied to a restaurant were a friend of a friend works yesterday, and I'm constantly sending out the ol' resume to jobs I see on craigslist.

Well today, I was out, shopping at Target to get some sweet boots on clearance for my potential jobs & interviews when I got a call for just that, a job interview. So, tomorrow, I have a job interview for another hostess position. And, I have a clean and fancy pair of shoes to wear to that interview. Who's excited? (Hint they write a blog post three times a week and live in Portland, OR).

I also, may have a friend of a friend come out and stay with me sometime. Soon, that would be great as I miss these friends and would love to see a member of their group.

So anyways, I have a feeling, that you're about to be reading blog posts from a real working woman instead of this partially employed approximation of a working woman you've got posting now.

Wish me luck on getting one of these jobs!

Ooops guys, I'm sorry. I forgot to update yesterday when I would typically update. This is largely in part to the fact that I've had some kind of unfriendly head cold and have been sleeping and drinking tea a lot instead of updating blogs, running, or even applying to jobs.

Some good news, I have a job offer at this place coolmoonicecream Some bad news, I wouldn't start for another month because they don't need me until the busier, warmer season begins. So, I'm still on the lookout during that time but if I find nothing, I do have that. Yay! yay! yay! They seem like a respectable business that will give me an opportunity to be a leader to some younger workers so that would be good experience. Other good news is, I'm working two days extra this week. Hip Hip Hurray and I am getting a good tax return this year so money should be pretty good for the next while.

Alright, I've got a phone date with a Mrs. Madeline Ogburn. I'll catch you guys on the flip side.
