7 Quick Takes Friday
You guys, it’s 8:02 am and Maggie is still sleeping!
It’s about an hour later than her usual wake up time. It’s awesome.
I got to shower and drink a cup of coffee and I might even get to write this post uninterrupted.
I have a new job!
I’ll be starting as a receptionist for Weight Watchers next week. I’ll start off working one meeting per week while I do training and then maybe go up to two or three.
It’s really, really part time (like 10 hours a week if I do three meetings), but that will help put some gas in the cars and pay for the YMCA membership.
Except I guess this technically means I’ll no longer be among the ranks of moms who’ve “never worked a day in their lives”.
Oh who am I kidding, of course I will!
Because I’d much rather be lumped in with Ann Romney than with the thoughtless, cruel kind of person who’d make that remark to begin with (and if you think she’s the only one who thinks that, open your eyes and ears).
Did you all know that Ann Romney raised 5 BOYS, battled cancer, and has MS? But she’s never worked a day in her life.
You know that noise people make, like sucking air through their teeth, whenever someone says something really stupid in a public setting?
Yeah, that just happened all over America.
Since I’m on a roll, did you know the Obama’s couldn’t afford the “luxury” of having Michelle stay home with their two daughters?
Yeah, it must have been tough times in the Obama household with him making 162,000 a year as a senator and her raking in over 300,000 a year doing whatever it is she does. Probably not planting vegetable gardens otherwise my husband would be a rich man.
But you know what they could afford? To send their kids to the most prestigious private elementary school in the city of Chicago, which, in case you’re curious, costs $23,000 per year per child for grades K-5. I can totally see now why they “needed” Michelle to keep working. Their private school tuition was about the same amount as what my husband makes in a year.
In fact, we make about 1/10 of the 400,000 a year that the Obama’s made when they couldn’t “afford the luxury” of having only one working parent. But I sure am glad that we have the “luxury” of me staying home when the poor, poor Obama’s didn’t.
Gag me with a spoon.
On a happier note, my dear friend Julie is having a baby shower here this weekend!
The theme is bees.
This is our invite:
Well, that’s just the sample, but isn’t it darling?
Due to some of your comments on my car post, we’ve decided to give the Sienna a look-see.
We’re going this weekend. Really, I just don’t love the shape of it. But it’s very highly rated, so I told Atticus we could give it a try.
I’ll let you know!
Have a great weekend and don’t work too hard. Unless you’re a stay at home mom, then you don’t even work at all, so why not pick up a broom and do something with your life for once?
Love you all!
