That is what I woke up to the other day. Amazing. And it has nothing to do with today's post, but you are about to read a lot. So just thought I'd add a little eye candy to begin with.
I know I left y'all with quite the cliffhanger last week, but I wanted to work my new job for a few days and get a feel for what it really entails before I put my
I got a job! We've been in Oklahoma for almost two months now (!! Can you believe it??), and I have been looking and looking and waiting and waiting for a job to show up. It's pretty slim pickin's here in good ol' Enid, and what is available, is usually off base. But patience pays off every once in a while.
As you may remember from our biker gang post, we are a one car family. Which worked out so well when Jon was walking to work and I was staying home. And we really wanted to keep that system, so I was pretty set on finding a job on base.
And I did! Finally! It's about a 4 minute walk to work for me, which I can't really complain about. And so far, I love it.

I get to take care of all the money. Anything coming in, anything going out. Checks, cash, credit, coupons. It's all me. I make the deposits, I do payroll. So far, so good.
I am not the lunch/dinner cashier (much to my relief). That is what I was worried about when I took the "cashier" job, but it's so much more than a cashier. I have my own office (with a window! and a key, that only my boss has. I don't even have one yet) and I have quite a bit of responsibility, but it's nice.
3 days in, I still like it. A lot. We'll see how I like it when I'm done training. :-)
And since I hate these long boring posts with no pictures, here is a picture Calvin was just dying for me to share on the blog.
