I Got a Job Today!!

Friday Follow


     Some of you may have known I have been unemployed. I work in construction (still a newbie), and jobs come and go quite often. Well I went back to work today, actually I'm not really working untill tomorrow, but I got hired today.

     I belong to a union, and jobs are dispatched through them. It's a fair system- when you get laid off your name goes to the bottom of the list, and you work your way to the top as the people ahead of you go to work. The Contractors don't have alot of choice who they hire, it's mostly a matter of whose name comes up. (With some exceptions of corse.) Funny thing is, I got dispatched today to a company I used to work for. I was so irritated by how they ran their company  really loved working there, and was ready to strangle this one A-hole everyone I worked with was great. So I am happy today.

     Now here comes the challenge, keeping up with my blog on work nights. The kids are in bed around 8pm, and I should  follow right behind them. I have to leave my house by 5:15am to get to the job sight by 6am. So I figure I can sleep 8:30pm-4:30am? Doesn't leave me much alone time with my computer. Going back to work is always a challenge. Trying to figure out when to cook, clean, sleep, shower, etc.. But this time I am determined to not only keep up with my blog, but with my blog reading and commenting as well. Any suggestions would be more than welcome.

     How do you working moms out there keep up with your blog writing and reading?

  18. Congratulations on your new job! I went back to work in November and I am still struggling in keeping up with my blog.

  19. I am so glad that you were able to get back to work. That is great news! It has been forever since I worked but one thing that I even do now is on the weekends I will make extra meats and refrigerate or freeze them to use in quick throw together meals. It cuts down on cooking time and there is a lot less waste. I will make a roast in the crockpot with onions and serve with mashed potatoes for one meal and then use it for beef tips and rice for another. Once you get started cooking like that you'll find yourself doing it all the time. Let me know if you need any ideas or recipes, I have tons!
