The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Today was a good day.  Despite being awakened at six in the morning.  As a matter of fact, it had to have been a specifically fantastical day to make up for being awakened at six in the morning.

Granted I went back to sleep, but it's never the same when you wake up at that hour of the morning.  I don't know if it's just losing the "deep" sleep, or the sun pouring in the windows, or the fact that once I'm awake the four legged furries demand my attention, and they're rather adamant about getting it.  I try to tell them I'm going back to sleep, and you'd think from animals that sleep over half the day that they of all creatures would understand, but no.  They're exceptionally vocal in the wee hours of the morning.

Anyway, I left before the hubby and youngling to go to help out with Thanksgiving dinner II.  Spent some quality time with my Mom, talked about a lot of stuff and got to enjoy our time together.

The best part of the day was that as my daughter was leaving the house to come join us at my mothers, she got good news.  After three interview processes, about six weeks of waiting and three different Game Stop stores, she's finally in the ranks of the legally employed.  She'll get a call tomorrow to let her know when to report to work.

Work in itself is good enough, but the fact that she was able to go to work for the one company that she really wanted to work for is even better.  The fact that she'll get discounts on a PS3 one of these days, a discount on my God of War 3 game once she gets the PS3, AND a discount on the much talked about, often incessantly talked about, agonized over, fantasized about Cataclysm, well that's just icing on the cake.  Yes, Game Stop is the perfect employer for my little geek girl.  She's a World of Warcraft fanatic, and with Cataclysm being released December 7th, the timing really couldn't be better.

Now all I have to do is figure out if I want her driving to and from work, or if I want to pile up the miles driving her to work, then home, going to pick her up, and then back home.  I'll worry about that later.  For now, I'll drive her out there, enjoy our time together while we drive and let the chips fall where they may.

All in all, this was an awesome day, Black Friday and all.  My only trip even remotely shopping related was to get a leaf blower for my Mom to give my Stepdad for his birthday on Monday.  In and out, with the exception of lugging around a box of 100 ceramic tiles looking for my husband who had mysteriously disappeared with our shopping cart.  Grrrr!  Trust me, I've reminded him a few hundred times how heavy that box was!

Hope everyone else had such a great day, now I'm off to grow roots on the love seat and spend some time with my favorite guy and my gainfully employed babygirl.

Ta Ta For Now!

How cool! What a fun job for here.

I was avoiding Black Friday as well. I did however run into target to grab one television series that was ridiculously cheap and then ran back out. Then, my mom and I went and saw Burlesque. What a fun movie!

Yep, she's really, reeeeeeeeeally excited lol

She's still waiting to hear back to find out when she starts, but let's just say she's been walking on air this whole weekend.

I really need to catch up on my movies, there are SO many I wanna see!

I'm not sure what the laws are where you live sweetie. Here you can get a work permit when you're 15. My daughter worked her first job at 17, I wasn't in a hurry for her to work, I wanted her to focus on her school stuff completely (so she can get a scholarship and save me the money!) This year she's only got four classes though so she gets out before noon.
