Hotlanter!!

I am still trying to recover from my trip to Atlanta (Known in the South as Hotlanta or a Northeasterner that is transplanted in the South might say Hotlanter) for my new job. It was good, but I was exhausted when I got home. I've been trying to keep myself from getting a full-on cold. I really like my new job!! Before I left for Atlanta, my hubs had been gone on a 3 day golf trip. He brought me home a surcie, that sweet man. Oh how I love him!!

He knows how I love my Reefs. These are the perfect addition to my flip-flop collection. Cool new t-shirt too!!
When I arrived in Atlanta, my new boss had a little "Market survival" kit for me. Water, tic tacs, bath salts, Carmex, candle, hand lotion, band aids, foot cream and Advil...just little things but all things that are needed for a rough week working at market.
On my way to my car one evening, I ran across this little treat on the sidewalk. Yes, it is a used pregnancy test. What??? Really???
Almost as gross was the gnarly toothbrush that was next to the used pregnancy test. Check out those mangled bristles.
The same night that I ran across my little sidewalk goodies, I had to make a trip to Wal-mart. My flat iron had died that morning, and no one wants to see my hair without a flat iron. Wal-mart was the only thing that I could find open that late at night. I walked past the garden center to find this...I think this is where all Wal-mart Christmas wrapping paper must go to die. I've never seen anything like it. There is no way that this pic captures how much wrapping paper was in that building!! There were rows after rows that looked like that.
My new boss had a little party for us on our last night. She catered in dinner and gave out cash awards. I won 60 bucks. Not bad for my first few days on the job.
The whole group
I brought some samples home with me, and I'm getting boxes of new stuff every day. The girls loved going through the boxes of samples. They particularly liked the company that sells the stroller blankets and aprons.
Ali didn't want to take the blanket off.
An hour later she was still sleeping on the floor with the blanket around her.
I'm happy with the way 2009 is going so far. I hope that this new job will continue to go well!! It would be nice to have everything go smooth for a little while!! Who am I kidding??? This is my life after all!!!

Happy 2009 to you. A pregnancy test on the street? Like they were driving down the street and threw it out the window? HA!

Cathy said...

Hotlanta sounds like a crazy place. Did you check close enough to see whether the test showed yes or no? Whoever threw it out must have not like the answer they got. Loved all the pics, especially the girls. I miss them and they looked so cute!

You did NOT take a picture of that pregnancy test and toothbrush in the street. That cracks me up. :-)
