MY LIFE AS I LIVE IT

I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

What's New?

I'm blogging on my lunch hour. How cool is that? I have a lunch hour! Yeah, I've not gotten over how thrilled I am to have a job. I'm nothing if not thankful. :)

I'm working at an extremely busy ob/gyn office in Dallas that houses five doctors, each with two nurses. We also do the in house mammograms, blood work and sonograms. I answer the phones with another woman (my angel) for all of the above. We answer the phones, make all appointments and keep the doctor's calendars.

It's a constantly busy place. There are probably 30 women in this group of people I work with, only the doctors are men. I've never known women to get along so well. These people seem to honestly like each other. I've not heard any bad words said to or about anyone. I've been here for eight work days and I'm still pretty shocked about it. When I interviewed for the job, I interviewed with the office manager (a man), a woman who has been here for 23 years and the managing doctor who founded the firm. The woman who interviewed me also helped train me and she has brought me in seven sets of scrubs. SEVEN. All the women wear them here, but it's an option. I wanted to go shopping for some and she told me she had some that didn't fit her anymore and she'd bring them in to me. Blessings! Yay me. :)

My favorite thing about the job is the regular hours. I leave for work at 7:30 and I'm home by 6:00. Greatness! I've came home a couple of times to Charlie making dinner for me. I know I've never told y'all this before, but I simply adore my kids. Speaking of kids, I made our Christmas cards on-line this year and love how they turned out. Got them yesterday in the mail, and other than my picture on them, they're great. I've recently lost a lot of weight (40 pounds) and wish I'd had a more recent picture on them, but...I'm so camera shy that regardless, I just won't get in front of one. Honestly, when you look at my kid's baby albums it looks like they were raised by Mark alone, there isn't any evidence of me. Katy always says it's like I'm in the witness protection plan. ;)

Casey will be home for a month at Christmas. How cool is that?!? Well, for me anyway. I'm sure he'll be ready to go back after a few days of Mom... I miss him so much. It's just the coolest thing watching he and Charlie hang together, though. Love it. You know what? I've raised some great kids.

Other things in my life, well...leaving it all up to God. He's in control and I can get through anything. So, all praise here. Seriously, I've got the best job, I like the people I work with and I got enough clothes to go through a week and a half, I've got my kids and they're kids to be proud of. Add in the friends I have, our health and all of our every day joys...I'm blessed.

Sorry I've been gone so long. When I get home, I'm just loving spending time with Charlie and doing things around my home. L.O.V.I.N.G. it!!

I'll be around to check on y'all soon. Big hugs to every single one of you.

I love that you love your job so much!! I am so grateful to the Lord for giving you such a pleasant place to work, because I know what it can be like to work with a bunch of ladies. :)

Can't wait to hear about all of the fun you and the boys are going to have over Christmas break!!

Lost 40 pounds? From the pictures you've posted on here, I've always thought you looked thin...You must be wasting away to have lost 40 pounds! ;)

Awesome Kath! There's nothing better than loving what you do for a living. You're there for 8 or more hours per day and it's so important to enjoy it while most of your life is technically at work.

And........you must look so adorable in scrubs!!! I want pictures!!!

Hope you're doing great! xxoo

This is great news! The J.O.B., the kids, the scrubs and all the rest. Take time for "real life" stuff and people it's important.

Good to have you posting again, and the news is good, too. I'm glad you are enjoying the job. I had a similar position a long time ago, and I was not as fortunate with my coworkers. There were just 2 that I didn't click with, but one was the office manager. I found another job after a few months. I loved the work, however, and I think you will continue to do so, as well. Good luck!

Hey I'm so happy for you and I'm glad you really like the new job. I also got your card in the mail the other day...and it WAS adorable! Thanks for thinking of me! I made some too but decided I didn't like them and haven't had time to re-do :/ so hopefully I can get those done before it's too late!
