A job a job a job I got a job! That's right, in a somewhat surprising turn of events, I've actually been employed since Thursday, when I was called in for something called an 'offer interview,' which turned into an offer, which turned into my first day.

Of course, this development meant that 'blogging' moved even further down my to-do list, behind things like 'buy food' and 'get more work clothes so people don't think you're a hobo.' But, you have now been officially updated. Also, I clearly will never write all the posts I promised you, so to tie up any loose threads:

1) I am an amazing wife because one Monday I came home from OL's and made The Pit Coq au Vin, despite the fact that it takes hours, and includes both bacon and mushrooms so I don't even eat the finished product. Also, I discovered in the initial stages of cooking that the trash needed to be taken out, and when I had accomplished this chore, I found about 6 inches of beer at the bottom of our now empty trashcan. How did this happen? Beats me, but I'm pretty sure I didn't do it. However, let me tell you that cleaning up that much of somebody else's beer from a difficult to reach location really doesn't put you in the mood to cook a crazy French dish that you won't even eat. Nevertheless, I persevered, and lo, my husband was pleased.

2) Money may not buy happiness, but it buys a certain amount of marital bliss. Due to various idiosyncrasies on both my and The Pit's parts and a grand total of 4 spoons in the household, we were forever grumbling at each other over silverware and the proper washing thereof. Then came the wedding and lots of lovely gifts, and now we have more silverware than we could possibly use in a week. Our supply of other kitchen staples (cutting boards, mixing bowls, etc) that previously caused friction has also increased, and a low-level but constant annoyance has been completely eliminated from my life.

Okay, now I've got to run or I'll be late for my very first Monday at my new job (!!!). I love you all and aim only to please, but if I were you, I wouldn't expect a ton of new material here for the next little bit.
