i’m 2 months into my new position as a payroll clerk and i really like it. the job is very much what i was told it would be – lots of excel work (pretty much 95%). i get to use my excel skills and have also been able to expand my skill set in a short time. it gets even better, b cuz i was made a permanent employee last month. woo hoo! i have benefits now. 🙂
what exactly do i have to do to get my child to brush her flippin teeth right every time????? no matter what we say or do, it never seems to get through to her. i’m so tired of yelling at her and threatening her to get it done right the 1st time. if we’re lucky, she will do it right for a little while, but then falls back into the same bad habit. i can just imagine if her teeth are a problem now, at age 9, that we’re gonna have serious hygene issues with her once she hits puberty. ugh! now is one of the times when i ask, “and what exactly was the reason we decided to have children?”
i went to see twilight last night with a friend as part of a pretty big group. the books are a big thing out here and so, of course, the movie was quite a big thing as well. it’s not common to see police at movies out here, so when you do have it happen, you know it’s a big deal. we got to the theater early, but since the movie was being shown on half the screens at a 20-plex (no joke), the line to get in wasn’t too long. my friend saw the movie fri nite, but was reserving her opinion until she saw it again. she just wasn’t sure what she thought of it yet. now, i promise there will be no spoilers here. 🙂 i did enjoy the movie and that kind of surprised me. i was wary of seeing it after reading all four books. i was worried that i would feel similarly to how i felt after watching the later harry potter movies (they have now become very difficult to watch after reading the books). however, twilight was a really good movie. i felt that they stayed much more on track with the book than i expected. i really did like it and was glad i went. my friend said that she really liked it after seeing it the 2nd time. 🙂 the soundtrack is really good too – i bought it today. i think it’s safe to say that you will like the movie regardless of whether you have read the book or not. enjoy!
