i'm a working girl again

(in the non-prostitute-type-way)...

watch the word search go mad NOW!!!

so i have successfully navigated my way through my FIRST day back in the paid workforce since 1989; back in the day when there was no INTERNET, no EMAIL, no desktop computers...

AND IT WAS GREAT!!!!!

i have read before that women in my position initially feel like they were 'faking' it. i mentioned this to tara today (who happened to be in town and drove me home after work!)
she said 'yep - fake it 'til you make it! and that sounds about right.

everyone was very welcoming and relaxed, and my FIRST order of business is to ORGANISE A CONFERENCE - like the WHOLE CONFERENCE!!!

there are actually four major conferences during the year; TWO that i organise entirely, and i attend three of them. they're all three days and two nights and the first one is in my home town, so i'll be able to stay with my parents the weekend following the conference!

it's like my DREAM JOB!!!

the girls are due home any minute
i cooked tonight's dinner last night

so all that's left to do is keep this buzz going for another few hours!!!

WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
