    I am almost 15 weeks pregnant and I applied for a new job last night. Surprise

    I couldn't help it though! The job is similar to what I do but with some more challenging aspects. Plus it's only about 3 to 4 miles from my house instead of the 30 that I am now.

     Ooo, good luck!  Do you tell them that you are 15 weeks pregnant when you interview?

  • So I had to tell DH that I'm not going to chat with him while I'm at work anymore b/c he gets me so upset. Sad, but true.

    I hope you get it.  3-4 miles from home would be awesome!!

  • How bad would it be if I went to the kitchen now to make my lunch...lol.

    Awww...thats too bad.  Sad I read an article a few days ago about 8 ways to get your marriage out of a rut or something and it suggested communicating during the day while your at work.

    I tell my son that he has to wait an hour, unless he wants to be fat.

    Hmmm... good point..... I guess if you wanted to be even more fat.  Just wait an hour it's not that long.... Drink some water.

    He had decided to buy a truck whether I like it or not. This sets a very bad precedent for our marriage & it will definitely come back to bite him.

  • Ok, that sounded a little rude now that I read it.  I'm sorry.
  • My boss just had me take a look at his computer to see why it wasn't working -- I'm an accountant, not IT.  So I told him it wasn't working because he's looking at porn on it after hours.

    I've been having issues like this too. If DH sets his mind on something, he has to have it RIGHT NOW.  So far it hasn't been a big issue, but I'm afraid one day it will be...

    OMG, really? LOL

  • The oil light on my car is flickering, so I bought some oil, and I'll have the shop look at it this weekend.  I open the hood, and I don't know what hole the oil goes in.  I felt so clueless.  They need to label all those things better.

    Yeah I didn't use that exact word I said "It's not working because you're going to websites that you shouldn't, and picked up a virus."  He just laughed it off.  It's weird, this program works on everyone's pc, except his.  I think he just has an older computer or something like that.

  • I just got a call from the district I've been waiting to hear from... I have another interview Friday at 9 am for a different position even though the first one isn't filled... I JUST WANT A JOB!

  • Thanks for the well wishes. I haven't interviewed yet. I just applied online (answered some questions and sent my resume). I guess if you're picked they do a phone interview first. Then an in person interview. I'm not sure when to drop the pregnancy bomb but I hope it works out. I would be so happy to be so close to home.

    That's funny. I always wondered what my old boss was doing up in his office all the time. Then I puked in my mouth for even thinking of him doing that.

    Oy.  I'm sorry you are dealing with this.  Not fun at all.   Sad

    Good luck with the new interview.  Hopefully you hear back from the first one before that interview and then you can cancel!

    I have four bosses, and one of my co-workers found some 'pictures' on one of the bosses folder on the network. 

    Another boss shuts his door for hours at a time,  when his wife worked here, some of the employees would make comments about what was going on in there.  Gave me shivers up my back.

  • www.flirtyaprons.com  I'm trying to justify $32 + shipping for an apron, when I could make one for probably 10 bucks.  But these ones are so dang cute.
  • Dumb question:  Is it possible to burn pictures to a cd at home or do you have to order them?  Are there special cd's to use?  Yeah...I don't really have a clue about this stuff, but people want pictures from the bachelorette party I went to this weekend...there are almost 200...it would be easier to just put them on a cd right?
  • I'm not IT, but I think you could burn them. 
  • I'm not a newbie!!! I'm not a newbie!!!  I'm not a newbie!!!

    This is a really big issue to me. We have 3 cars & I'm still paying on mine. We don't need to have 2 car loans. If he would wait 6 months & help me pay off my car, I would be more comfortable with it. But he doesn't want to help me pay mine off b/c he doesn't think I should have bought it. I had a car I didn't like & it was almost paid off, so I traded it. My monthly expense did not go up, so I didn't see a problem with it. We bought a house, so my housing expense went up & now my budget is tight, so he says I made a bad decision buying my car. When I bought my car, I had no idea that we would buy a house this year. Sorry this is getting so long, but this is a very complicated issue. He feels that I don't trust him to make a good decision & that I'm trying to change him. I feel that my opinion doesn't matter to him. And we are at a total standoff.
