Writer's Workshop: No Woman No Cry

This looked like fun, so I thought I'd try it.

1.) Describe your latest obsession.
Hmm, I'd have to go with Facebook. I joined a while ago, but thought it was boring. I mean, afterall, you can't bling your page with seizure inducing flash pages. There's no place to put bad songs that everyone has to hear every time they click on your page. There is just a plain ole white page filled with mostly text. But I tell you, once you get started, you're addicted! Where the hell else in the world can you send your friends a fish, a tree, a blue cupcake with chocolate sprinkles, whack them upside the head with a tootsie roll shaped pillow, and kidnap them using a giant mousetrap??
HELLLLOOOO! That's my kinda fun! HAHA!
Seriously, though, I found my best friend from Kindergarten on there the other day. I have exes on there, former co-workers, aquaintences. I love it.

Now it's your turn.
Choose a prompt, post it on your blog, and come back and sign Mr. Linky:

The Prompts:

1.) Describe your latest obsession.

2.) Ask a loved one to use 6 descriptive words to describe you and report your findings. How well do they know you?

3.) Who was your first bloggy friend? How did you find each other? Do you still correspond?

4.) Tell us about your pet! If you have a weird infatuation with your dog or cat we want to hear about it (or if they just plain drive you crazy)...but please don't compare them to children. It's just not the same.

Holy Cow Batman!

Geez, Louise! This whole work thing is tiring! Today, we learned a bit about the computer system that the credit union uses. Tons of info was thrown at us today. Intimidating at first, but after getting to play in the system, it's not too bad.
By the time I get home, it's time to cook dinner, chat with the kids, chat with the hubbs. Then it's snack time for the kids, bathtime, bedtime, whatnot. Watch a little tv, fold some laundry, go to sleep. Repeat. Wowza. I'm sure I'll get used to it soon. Nice thing is that 2 weeks into the job, I get to go take a long weekend in Vegas. Woohoo!! Meeting my friend Sara and her hubby Mike there, which we are SOOO excited about. Something to look forward to. Yay!

1st Day!

Today was my first day at

it was long, but pretty exciting. The day was spent mostly just filling out paperwork and watching various videos. Our trainer is hilarious. She has stories upon stories, and never stops talking. I'm glad she's funny and energetic. Will make 2 weeks of learning a lot more fun!
So far, I'm liking everything I'm learning. Marine Federal sounds like a great place to work, and I hope to work there all of the 4 years we are here :)
