The Girl is in big kid school! 

I'm the mom of a kindergartner. In some ways it's easier because she's in school from 8-3 five days a week. It certainly makes the part time job easier. However, she's in school at 8! That means we have to get up at 6:30. The Girl and I, not so much morning people. Thankfully I don't work in an office so I don't have to have my makeup on and hair done before dropping her off at school.

The Girl is loving kindergarten. I'm so happy about that. She's made lots of friends, which has its ups and downs. The Girl is very friendly and nice so she makes friends easily. Some of her friends have had a little trouble with that. At least one friend, E, has been in tears because The Girl was talking more to S than to B. It's a drama.

So, they're two months late but here are some first day of school pics.

New outfit, check. New sneakers, check. Huge new Tinkerbell backpack, check.

Headed to Mrs. S's room.

Enough pictures. Weren't you leaving, Mom?

Bad, bad, sucky blogger! 

Yes, it's been over four months since I blogged. I'm very, very bad. In my defense, I have a job now! I'm working as an administrative assistant. The cool thing is I get to work from home. And I've done gone on two business trips since I started in June.

One of them was a regional sales meeting in Breckenridge, CO. Yeah, if you have to go on a trip, that's not a bad choice of places. Unless your luggage doesn't make it from Dallas to Denver with you. It finally got to the hotel at 11 p.m. However, since the big boss gave everyone at the meeting a new Ipod Nano so he could do podcasts, the good outweighed the bad.

Next week, I'm going to Connecticut again for another training class. I'm excited because I have never been in New England in the fall. Yes, I'm a geek and will be taking my camera. Our headquarters there has a beautifully wooded campus and there better be some good foliage.

So, to sum up, bad, bad blogger, yet with an excuse.
