Dear Blog, Sorry I have neglected you this month. It's not for lack of ridiculousness....
I am home this week in Syracuse. Staying with the parents. I should have plenty of material.
This morning's conversation with mom:
Me: I'm going to my sister's house to work. But I'll be home for lunch. What time? Pina: I'm making cutlets and salad" Me: Ok, what time? Pina: Some cutlets and a salad Me: Ok, but what time should I come home? Pina: What time are you coming home?
I will go home at 12:30 and am sure to find some cutlets and a salad...AND a lasagna, some meatballs, fried zucchini flowers, and a spread of cheeses, breads and olives. Along with a few belts of homemade vino.
For the last 10 years, I have had jobs that have led up to what was one of my favorite ones so far - selling stuff to restaurants on a national level, working from home and getting to travel to warm places and work with fun people. After Colgate, I started out as a meager PAC coordinator working for Morgan Stanley's lobbyist in DC, which led me to Fundraising for the Make A Wish Foundation, Business School on the side as I tended bar for a few years, a fun year bartending in Key West, travelling in Italy and living in Boulder, then the sales jobs which I was a pretty good at....until a lay off on January 7th, 2009. I've also been a house painter, sandwich maker, coffee server, and soccer referee and, for one very long day, an event roadie. Now I am ready for the next adventure - whatever that will be.
