What Am I Going to Be When I Grow Up?

Well, I am back in the ranks of the employed. It has been three weeks, and I kind of hoped I would have several months off, but that was quite unrealistic! My dear friend Jane (of Stop, Drop, and Crop fame) got me a job in the law office where she works! I shall be her Gal Friday! Helping, assisting, and learning legalese! We are going to be working side by side, and for those of you who know us personally, that is going to be quite a hoot! Seriously, though we plan to run that office like a tight ship!!! There will be no ringing of the dysfunction junction bell! I will have a ton to learn but I am very excited and grateful for this opportunity! I am even going to have to wear "dress up"clothes! At least that is what I am calling clothing other than the scrubs I got away with wearing to the hospital.

I felt like a total "career woman" today as I wore my fancy pants and shoes and clicked around those wooden floors! Click, click, click....hear me roar, I am a professional career woman people!" This might lead to daily mascara wearing!!!! Yikes! Not to mention under eye cover up!

This all got me to thinking of what I wanted to be when I was growing up:


Ballerina
Stewardess (there were no flight attendents then!)
Barbra Streisand
Nurse
Police Woman (ala Angie Dickinson, remember her cool pantsuits??)
and more recently...
Librarian
Reading Specialist

Since those last two require more schooling, I have opted to jump into the law office gig!!

I start next Monday.

Pray for Jane..........

Well...I guess I will pray for Jane, but what I'd rather do is be right there working with both of you....HOW FUN !!!!!

Wahoo! Laura and Jane get to play dress up, get paid, and call it "work"! Your images are great, and quite frankly if I did not know it was you writing your future career choices, they sound identical to my gay friend Chayse! He didn't get to be any of those things either :{...yet.

I wanted to be a ballerina too ... except that I couldn't say that when I was little and said "gorilla" instead.

I can't wait to hear all about the office escapades. I think you're going to love it!

Jane said...

Glad to have you by my side! It will be fun! Kind of like Cagney and Lacey.... they did crime fighting but close enough to a law firm gig!
WOO HOO!

This board game looks so familiar to me. I don't think I had it...it must have been my friend, Laura Bailey.

You are so lucky to have found a job so quickly. Thank goodness for good friends who look out for you. I hope you love it at the new place!

I was a legal assistant once upon a time. It is an interesting job and working with lawyers is truly mind expanding, shall we say. Lucky you, to find a job to fast. It is nice to hav vacation but not when it is forced on one.

Mary said...

Laura you are so funny and I love your blog. Will be checking up on you as you return to work - wish you lots of luck.

Heather said...
