Back to Work!

Time for an update! I am finally once again a part of the workforce! I've officially been back to work for 3 and a half weeks now. I'm an Executive Secretary for the County Manager's Office and I'm really enjoying it. I'm making a bit less money than I did at my previous job, but considering we pay less in rent here it makes up for it. I have to dress and look a lot nicer for this job, but that isn't such a bad habit to get into. Though that means I have to actually spend money on clothes and makeup. And shoes...oh how I loath shoes. Never anything cute in the big foot section, at least not at the stores I go to. I refuse to pay more than $30 for a pair of shoes that are just going to wear out in 6 months anyways. Only time I've spent more was in high school/college when I'd buy Doc Martins. $100 for a pair of shoes seems silly, but I'd wear a pair of those for 3 years, and I'm talking every day!

Bah, but enough about shoes. I think I need to get my hair cut again. It's nearly back to the length it was last year before I donated it. It would make drying it go a lot faster in the mornings. But I think I need some style to it. Nothing to complicated though. Needs to be something still about medium length that will look ok just blown out on a regular basis but not be this just plain straight cut that I have. I don't have time every morning to curl it. I also don't want to spend a fortune to get it cut. My $12 hair cuts, while effective, just are not as elegant. But I don't want to spend $50+ either just to have nice looking hair.

Sigh...

I'm full of complaints today huh? All I really wanted to do was share my good news, which I've now done. Maybe next time I'll have something more interesting to share.
