Back to Work

Today I went back to work for the first time since December 4th, 2001.  (The day before Max was born.)  

Starting on Tuesday evening, I'll be teaching two night classes for the base Arts and Crafts center:  Beginning Wheel Throwing, and Beginning Hand Building.  But part of my job includes working the occasional half-Saturday at the Arts and Crafts store.  

And today was my first day.  And yeah...it was pretty sweet.  I got to use a price gun, (Though it loses it's novelty after the first 100 or so orange stickers...) I learned how to use the register and credit card machine, and when there were no customers, I got to work on some of my pots.  (During down time you're encouraged to scrapbook or work on any other craft project you might have or the store might need.  Shhhweeeet!!!)

When I came home, the house was spotless (including bathrooms) and Doug immediately started making a gourmet meal.  (Sesame seed seared beef with noodles and veggies.)  Proving once and for all that he is a much better stay-at-home mom than I am.

BUT, I have one small consolation...while at work, I got a call from Doug.  He wanted to know where my nail polish remover was.  Evidently, while using super glue, some leaked out and stuck the container firmly to his fingers.

I think it's the simple pleasures in life that make it worthwhile!  
Don't you agree?

How great--you get paid to play....and teach! Even better to come home to a clean house and cooked meal. You definitely are married to a White Knight. Let him have the cooking honors and sit back and enjoy. It is temporary, believe me.

I would sign up for both classes in a second!
