So much to say . . . .

(so little of it interesting) and so little (quiet) time to actually sit down and post something.  Well, something relevant and of some kind of importance anyway.

So this is what you get....

Hello.  Hope you are all well.

Things are fine (for the most part) here at Gigi's house.  Just waiting for Spring to leap upon us -pollen and all - and on that ever elusive job to appear for Hubby.  Both seem to be lurking just around the corner somewhere.  Hopefully, they'll both make an appearance sometime soon.

Man-Child?  Well, thank you for asking.  He is doing well and causing no undue grief (knock on wood) other than usual teenage stuff (you know....I say "take out the trash, please." and he responds with "I will" and three hours later the trash is still sitting there....whereupon I do my damnedest to not completely lose it with him - yeah, the usual).

My job?  Well, despite my beloved colleague departing and heading into retirement (gleefully, I might add) not much has changed.  I've added a boss or two or possibly three (for the moment) to my duties and despite Big Dog's claims that things will be "crazy" I've yet to notice much difference to my daily routine.  Which truly makes me wonder what his idea of "busy" might actually be......obviously our definitions are FAR different..... It also makes me wonder why he has posted the position for, what I guess would technically be my replacement.  It's confusing, I know.  My job is safe - I'm just officially keeping my uber-favorite boss who is wonderful and adding Mr. Big Dog but the new person would get the others.  But in my opinion, we OBVIOUSLY don't need anyone and they should just add that salary to my current one .....but then again, no one is asking me what I think or even seems to care that I have an opinion.  Ahhh, corporate life.

And finally, welcome to my newest friends - I'm so glad you've found your way to my little corner of the blog-o-sphere.  Come on out and say hi and introduce yourselves, why don't you?

  1. New friends? I don't think I know what that feels like anymore. :)

    Doubling your salary would be sooo nice. Then hubby wouldn't have to stress so much.

    Glad man-child is behaving. As you know, that can all change in the blink of an eye.

  3. I like the idea of adding the salary on. I work 4 days a week but I do as much as my full time colleagues, I'd be so happy if they added an extra days pay on :)

    Hoping hubby gets sorted soon xx

  4. Can't believe man-child takes over 3 hrs to take out the rubbish - my child-child is the same but I was hoping his rubbish-taking-out-attitude would improve as he got older - clearly that's not the way it works!

    Hope your hubby gets something soon - there's a job out there with his name on it - just taking a while to find it x

  6. Yeah, it sometimes takes 3 hours for my husband to take the trash out, so.. yeah... that might not improve much. ;)

    And I think they should just pay you double and not hire anyone else!

  8. Man-child .. hummmm :)
    Hey check out the video on my blog with the name Mark Gunger - it's about how to get your man to do what you WANT - pretty cool. :) Men never do things in our time - only their time and that's usually just in time - or not. :)
    Hope you have a great day.

  9. My son actually did two jobs this week that I didn't ask him to do...needless to say I was shocked, thought I must have imagined the jobs in the first place or that we had a fairy. Was very pleased when I found out.
    It does seem silly about the job doesn't it. Why can't management ever see what is so obvious. XX
