I'm sure most of who is reading this already knows about my good fortune, but for those that don't, I got a job!! It has absolutely nothing to do with my major, but it's a source of income! I'm working at an administrative assistant at a pediatrics office. I'm the assistant for one of the nurse practitioners. I started working there on April 18. I'm actually extremely lucky to have found this job. It was in the Sunday paper on the 8th of April, I applied that night, got a phone call for an interview the next day, interviewed that Tuesday and was offered the job the same day!! I couldn't believe it!! I had been applying for numerous jobs, but like most people applying for jobs these days, I had not heard back from any of them. So get this...I was one of the 400 applicants that she had received like overnight and by the time I was doing my paperwork she had over 600 applicants and I believe she received over 1,000 applications!! Is that not the craziest thing?! I consider myself very lucky.
So I've been there over a month and so far everything is going pretty well. I was finally released from training last week, so I'm officially official! I had to put Zach in daycare and he's actually doing pretty well. He still cries a little in the mornings when I leave him, but I know he likes it. He has a provider there that he has latched on to. Her name is Becky, but he calls her "Bebby", which I think is better than Becky! I'm told as soon as he sees her car pull into the parking lot, he goes nuts! Yes, he knows her car. That's how much he loves this woman. I still don't like leaving him, but knowing he has someone there that he really cares about and vice versa, it makes it a little easier.
The weekend I was offered the position, my very best friend, Kammy, got married!! I was her matron of honor and I was certainly honored!! Kammy has been one of my nearest and dearest since I was 15. She has always been like a sister to me. I'm so happy that she is finally happy with her new best friend...well I guess technically he was her bff first. Kammy and Danny have known each other since they were 13. She's a little older than that now...tehehe. Seriously, I couldn't be happier for them! It was a long, broken road for them, but they finally found their way to one another.

The wedding was so beautiful. Traditional Catholic wedding with ALL the trimmings. Jason and Kerri are such an amazingly loving couple. I don't know how Jason trapped her, but I'm happy he did because she is such a wonderful addition to our amazing group of friends.

Side note: MA has some of the scariest drivers I have ever encountered. I thought NOVA/D.C. drivers were scary...they have nothing on these MA drivers!!
Second side note: I really think MA is the Dunkin Donut capital of the world...I'd have to do some research, but I'm preeetty sure there was one on every corner.
