Match and the Graveyard Shift

Cheerleader: I am never gonna be captain again!
Callie: You know, I was… I was fired from a job recently-
Cheerleader: You were fired from being a doctor and they let you cut open my ass?!
Callie: Okay, shut your trap for eight seconds and let me finish. I didn’t get fired from being a doctor, I got fired from being being like, well our version of squad captain. Which is mostly about organizing crap… not about surgery.
Cheerleader: So?
Callie: So, I got to go back to the part that I like… which is kind of a gift. –Grey’s Anatomy

Match started his new job this week, and the good news is we’re both thrilled to have him working again. The bad news is his schedule is completely opposite of mine. He’s working nights and doesn’t come home til I’m already at work. It could be worse-at least this way we do get to eat dinner together and visit a bit before he’s out the door at 10 to make his commute to work, right as I’m getting ready for bed.

Waiting For My Calling

That was the year I got left at the altar, it was the year I got knocked out by a crazed bartender, the year I got fired, the year I got beat up by a goat, a girl goat at that, and damn it if it wasn’t the best year of my life. Because if any one of those things hadn’t happened, I never would’ve ended up in what turned out to be the best job I ever had. But more importantly, I wouldn’t have met your mother. Because as you know, she was in that class. Of course, that story is just beginning. -Ted, How I Met Your Mother

This week at work has been the slowest it’s been in months. I wish I could say it was nice, but it makes the day just drag by. Match has been feeling it too since he’s just doing his unpaid internship and waiting for his new job to give him a start date. They’re taking forever and it’s driving us both nuts. Match really wants us to move North, maybe to Oregon or even Washington, but there just aren’t any jobs there. I love our little duplex and I’m happy in the town we’re in, but I am definitely ready for a change of career. Continue reading Waiting For My Calling

Leaving on Business

Guess where I am going? I’ll give you a hint: It is a booze-fueled sex romp where anything goes. [looks to camera] You are correct, sir! I’m headed to Philadelphia for the Annual Northeastern Mid-market Office Supply Convention! -Michael, The Office

This weekend I will be going out of town for business. Actually, my work is hooking us all up with rooms at the embassy suites in beautiful Lake Tahoe! I’m so excited-I haven’t been up there since I was a little girl. The only bummer is that Match won’t be able to go, even though I was allowed a guest. He has fire academy all weekend, and midterms. So I will be stuck in a fancy hotel room and won’t get to truly take advantage of it.
