That's great, Y! Money isn't everything when it comes to a job but it sure helps you overlook a lot! LOL

I hope we didn't lose Michele again already....she just came back to us!

So I asked our iV mod to consolidate our folders and rename the top one "Everything but the bees" and I got some pushback because they want to make things more search engine friendly so she wanted to keep one of the folder names we already had. Well if you search Bugs/Blossoms it will come up anyways because that's our group name! Or the other choice was to keep the name Moms Connect. Well that just doesn't make any sense. Who is going to go to a search engine and type in Moms Connect looking for a mommy group of kids born in 2006??? Ugh. I'm irritated. I argued with her of course because there is no logic to that. Now she's ignoring me. LOL

michelle, dh NOT home. i just took a little catnap on the couch and figured thekids couldn't get into too much trouble.

i got salmonella 3 years ago. i was on a massive deadline on the jonas bros movie and working crazy hours. i took 3 days off including the weekend. i have never been so sick lost 8 lbs in 4 days, and i was not "right" for about 2 months. at first i was in the bathroom 20-30times a day. the skin on my hands was destroyed for about a year from all the hand washing during the time. it was truly awful. we never did find out how i got it. everything i made at home was eaten by at least one other person, so i did not do it.

Haha - yeah, well she had her first baby 9 weeks early, I think? So stopped working a few months early as a precaution.

IDK how long I'll work with them. I assumed they would resent paying my rate but they are talking about putting my bio in new business proposals and pulling me into new projects. They can't afford senior staff right now so I think they like this arrangement because they don't have to worry about keeping me billable. (Not that's ever a problem anyways.) But if we get this wind/wildlife effort that will be huge and ongoing....probably at least a 2-year effort.
