Breaking a 4 1/2 Year Routine

Today is Davin's first day at work, and it's very lonely at the house without him around. :( Ever since we started dating in 2003 we've both worked at Multnomah, so we could connect at any time during the day, and we always had lunch together. Over the last few month's I've definitely been spoiled having him home with me all the time while he was job hunting. Now when I have a question (like I can't find the cell phone!) or something on my mind, he's not here to talk to. I can't even call down to his cube in IT because he's not there. He's a real business man working downtown now. I'm sure he'll get GoogleTalk up and running on his new work machine soon which will help a little. *Sigh* I guess I'll just have to wait until he gets home at 5:30 or 6... depending on the MAX schedule. I can't wait to hear about his first day! I know this is "normal," but it's really hard to break out of a 4 1/2 year routine! I'm going to make lunch now... all by myself.

Job No Longer Hunting

Well, I got a job. It is with a company called Scan One. They are located in downtown Portland. Best I can tell they do document scanning and storage. I say that because the website isn't very clear about what they do. They use lots of corporate jargon that doesn't convey a clear picture of what they really do. Anyway, I'm apparently going to be working on an accounts payable web application. It should be a big learning curve, since I know pretty much nothing about accounts payable. Ok, I can can add and subtract and do calculus. So, I probably know something about it, but not much. I start on Monday. So, thanks to those who have been praying for me.

Job Hunting

Well, I'm currently looking for full-time employment. At the end of January my part-time job at Multnomah was dissolved to help find the money to create a new full-time developer position. I applied for that job and waited to hear back. I found out the other day that they have decided not to interview me for the position. So, I'm in full force job hunting mode right now. I'd like to find something close. If I could find a position that allowed telecommuting that would be great ... especially with baby coming. In the meantime, when I am not actually submitting resumes I have been trying to be a good house-husband ... cleaning, cooking, laundry, etc.
