Working - real, big girl work.....

This is how the magnificent Hans felt about me returning to work

A dad with his three kids-and their true character

A more "edited version" - on their better behavior

This time the silence has a reason.....the reason: A JOB!!!! And, not just any job, a job at the Saturday Evening Post......the details are still being worked out - but it is a history nerd's dream. I began quite suddenly on Thursday and worked all day Thursday (without lunch, mind you - because why would I have taken lunch?) All day Friday as well. Holy Moly - I LOVE IT - however, I didn't realize that after not really "working" in about 9 months - I am exhausted (in a super-positive, very productive kind of way), but tired, nonetheless.

Yesterday we made a one day trip to see Nate's family for Christmas (yes, I realize that we are pretty much a month past Christmas!) We left at 6:30 am and got home around 10:30pm.....TIRED.

Today, I took a Jen "personal day." Not knowing what exactly this job is going to pan out to be immediately (full time or part time) I just thought I needed to give myself the day to relax and recoup to be ready for a potentially BUSY week.

It feels great to be back at WORK - and not just a mindless job I don't care about, but a job that I am passionate about. I am excited to see where this goes - but am not going to rush it unnecessarily....

I included a few pics for your enjoyment!


  1. YAY!!! I'm excited for you. Not only that you got a job but one that you are totally loving! That is awesome! I love the first picture, poor Hansy. I hope you have a good week and that you aren't too exhaughsted by the end of it :)
