Working Girl

So, I've been at my job for six weeks now. I've averaged a five hour work week including the hours I put in at home (one week I didn't go into the office at all). Mondays are my "big" work day. I usually go into the office for a couple hours and then visit contacts for a bit. I have also started a work-related blog. It is for people in the production industry; producers, directors, animators, actors, camera crewmen, editors, etc., etc. in Utah Valley. I'm working on getting it its own URL and once my readership is up then I will be able to generate advertising revenue from it and possibly make that my only job. I would appreciate you checking out my production blog, which is named Wasatch Wrap (Utah Valley is along the Wasatch Mountain Range). Leave me your comments there so I know you stopped by. Pass along the website address to any of your friend in and around Provo and link to the blog on your sidebar if you think any of your readers would be interested. Thanks!!
Also, on a related note, I have hired a woman to come help me with some housekeeping. She is going to come every other week and work a total of 5 hours a month for me doing my floors and bathrooms. I refuse to do more than my daily housekeeping (dishes, laundry, sweeping) on the weekends if Brandon isn't doing some as well. And in a surprise twist on it all, after the lady came by to see our house yesterday, I went shopping for clothing for my poor raggamuffin kids, and when I came home four hours later with darling outfits and pjs for the kids plus some groceries, my house was clean!! Well, the floors were swept, the kitchen was clean, the basement was vacuumed, tidied, and organized. It was wonderful. Thank you B!!!
While I was out shopping for the kids I stopped at TJ Maxx in hopes of finding a few Easter decorations. I found something even better:

and I got the matching creamer and sugar bowl. Nothing says Emily in Wonderland like an Alice in Wonderland tea set:)

Love the teapot score. I need a house cleaner, too.

You sound so busy. Happy and busy. My kitchen floor is pretty depressed since I can't find the time to wash her. Going on three weeks now. I might make it to four before it has a total breakdown.

Don't EVER feel weird about hiring a housekeeper. It saved one of my friends marriages! She will probably have one for the rest of her life.. That tea pot is the coooolest thing I have seen in a LONG time. Good job yo..

I love the tea pot but i am even more interested in the sugar and creamer bowl. I love s and c sets. If I wasn't opposed to collecting at this point in my life I would get a few. So much cooler than salt and pepper shakers. (Dont be offended salt and pepper shaker collectors!)

I hate that it is expected we clean and tidy 95% of the time then the rare 5% of husband cleaning is an awe-inspiring, thanks-giving, and gratitude-gushing event. Men. You're doing a great job balancing kids, home, and work.

I am crazy for the teapot and you know how much I love them! Mama
