5QF ~ May 4

May the 4th be with you!

Oh I do love saying that on this day.

My coworker came dressed in his Star Wars t-shirt today and was talking in Star Wars lingo most of the afternoon. It was fun.

I was feeling a little disheartened that no one in my work area would speak to me except for the manager and my coworker, but I managed to crack through their crusty exteriors and it appears they have now accepted me.

I've completed the two week "trial" period, and I've been asked to return next week. I don't know how long my time there will be, but I'll keep going as long as they'll have me. Last night as I was leaving I met the president. He told me he was very impressed with my results and complimented me on an email I sent to an angry and rude customer. This morning the credit manager came to tell me that they are very impressed with me. Good stuff.

Two weeks in and we're still adjusting. I'd forgotten how difficult it was to be a working mother, and now I have twice as many kids to make time for. My time with them is so limited and that sucks.

Tomorrow Ian is taking Sam and Julie to see the Avengers and I'm going to take Jordan and Matthew over to my mom's and visit with her. I've been looking forward to it for days.

I'm very thirsty right now but I am too lazy to go downstairs to get a drink.

OK, it's time for Mama M's Five Question Friday blog hop! Yippee!

1. What did you wear to prom? Include a picture if possible.

I can hardly remember the design on it, but it was blue and had three quarter sleeves. I was going to see if I could find a photo but Ian packed all of our albums.

(psst...thanks Ian!)

I don't think you'd be able to handle my hair. Oh was...big.

My date gave me an orchid corsage and it was beautiful.

2. Would you rather be on the biggest loser or a food eating challenge?

I'd rather be on the Biggest Loser because I would be all smokin' hot at the end, collecting my big $250,000 prize.

3. What's your fave sonic drink? Refreshing summer drink?

We don't have Sonic here in Canada...surprise, surprise. The US gets all the good stuff. I heard that you park in the lot and servers rollerskate out to your car to take/deliver your order. Is that true??

My favourite refreshing summer drink would be iced tea in a tall glass with lots of ice.

4. What was your first car, and what did you call it?

It was a white Celebrity and I bought it from my mom. I think his name was Bart.

5. What's one thing your child or spouse does that sends you over the edge?

I am not one to talk poorly about Ian or my children to anyone, so I won't answer this question. I'm pretty sure that for any thing they do, I do twice as many. So... I'll just keep my mouth closed :)

Have a super weekend and.... May the 4th be with you!

Head on over to Mama M's blog My Little Life to join in on the fun!
