I got the job!

Well, my old dress must be magic, because I got the job! It's actually a second job that I'll work one day a week, but the money they were offering was too good to turn down.

Hubs and I are hoping that whenever we do have kids we'll figure out a way for me to stay home at least most of the time. I don't relish the idea of putting kids in daycare. So now with this job (if I'm still working there when I have a baby) it's more likely we can make that happen! I'm just feeling really blessed right now.

Thanks, everyone for the kudos yesterday! The dress really was a big hit-- I got so many compliments on it which surprised me. And you were right, Beth, that the confidence I got from the dress helped me in the interview. :)

So, today I was totally late so I didn't pack breakfast or lunch. There's a cafeteria downstairs at work, but it's tough to stay on plan down there! I do try when I'm in this kind of situation, but there just aren't many good choices. The stuff that would fit into the plan technically is just so greasy and bland that it's not appealing at all. I'll probably just get a sandwich and take off one of the pieces of bread.

I really need to learn how to get my lunches together the night before so I don't have to worry about this kind of thing. That should be one of my mid-year resolutions.

Congrats on the job. Yeah, maybe packing your lunch the day before will help you. Have a great weekend. :-)

Congrats! That is awesome! I wish that i would have set some money aside before we had kids. I stayed home anyway. LOL.

I pack my husband the same thing every day for lunch. if you picked a few things that you like, and made them ahead, it would help. For example, I might make up 5 containers of peanuts, get a package of string cheese, and pre portion out yogurt for his lunch and set it aside in the fridge and cupboard. So in the morning I can just throw everything together in his lunch bag in the morning. I have even been known to make sandwiches ahead and freeze them, although PB and J works best for that.

That is so great about getting the job! Shows you what a little confidence in yourself will get you! When I want a really quick lunch I go for a Peanut butter sandwich made with low carb bread and low or no sugar peanut butter.
