Mom Likes Me Best! Happy Hour Friday

It's Friday! There are many happy events to share with you for Happy Hour today....

I got a job! I'm no longer a deadbeat! Once again, someone is actually going to pay me real money to play with little kids. Works for me! The only downside is that it takes away from valuable blogging time. And I'm sure I'll be totally wiped out next week... teaching the wee ones is one of the most physically exhausting jobs there is. But, for this Friday, the fact that I'll be back doing what I love makes me very happy!

I got a lovely blog award from a lovely lady... the one and only Ms. Eolist Petite.

Thank you Ms. Petite!

And since I get to pass this award along to some other lovely bloggers, I'd like to take this opportunity to award it to these lovely bloggers with truly lovely blog sites:

Spudballo over at Chez Spud with her lovely photos
Nancy at Body in Balance who will help you find balance in your life
Michelle, who pretends to be a Surly Writer, but is actually quiet lovely

Mom also likes me best this week! Mine was the winning entry in Kirsten's caption contest this past week over at The Soccer Mom Files. Here's my winning entry:

Register now for our parenting classes. Satisfaction guaranteed or your ammo back.

Did you like it... huh? Huh? Here's what I won:

Now I get to be the blog sheriff for the week! Yay! That means you all have to do everything I tell you to do for the entire week! (Isn't that how this award works, Kirsten? Or should I just save time and send myself to my room now?)

Please be sure to stop by and say howdy to Otin and RxBambi and see who else is participating in Happy Hour Friday this week!

I stubbed my toe and I think it's bleeding, and it's snowing this morning.

So, Vlad is tall(fridge worthy)?! Hmm, I always pictured him kinda on the shorter side, like Gary Oldman.

Michelle H. said...

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

Yay! Congrats on the new employment status!

Jen said...

Hey, Congrats on the job! That must feel great. I wish someone would pay me for entertaining my kids, oh wait it's not the same thing is it?

otin said...

Well, I love that you got a job, and I hate that you got a job, if you know what I mean!

I laughed at your caption!

CatLadyLarew said...

Willow: Thanks! It will be nice to be able to afford food again. (And Vlad's definitely "fridge worthy" at 6'6" tall... he'll be glad to see there's actually something in the fridge again.)

Skye: Sure hope the parents of the kids in my new class don't see that caption... they might get the wrong idea. Hell awaits me!

Lee: Aw, thanks, sweetie!

Nanodance: My week has been much better than yours... hope you start feeling better SOON!

Moooooog: Sorry about your toe... maybe you should go stick it in the snow to keep the swelling down. I'll try not to be so happy next week.

Maelstrom: Thanks, my friend.

Michelle: Just because you're surly doesn't mean you don't need kind words! Loved your Hansel & Gretel post!

nonamedufus: Thanks... maybe some day they'll give you a name as an award. You really deserve one!

BS & BC: Thanks, my favorite twins!

Marvin: I have no choice but to keep on keepin' on! The alternative is not too attractive!

CatLadyLarew said...

Stacy: Thanks for the random & cool congrats!

Janice: Let's both hold hands and yell yippee and jump up and down... we could count that as our exercise for the day!

Crystal: Come on over any old time! Glad to have you!

Goddess: There's nothing like work to provide you with some good blogfodder! Glad you liked the caption!

Me-Me: I shall wear my badge of office proudly!

Ms. Petite: Thanks again for the lovely award! Couldn't have come from a lovelier lady!

Quirky: Whatever shall I do with my new-found wealth? I know! I'll EAT... and drink Dr. Pepper, of course!

Mami: Thanks! It's a pleasure knowing the Unknown.

Reffie: NOOOOOO! Not a CAT! That will never work!

NGIP: Thanks! I can now afford to buy a bottle of Bully Hill to celebrate!

Jen: I think people should get bonus pay for entertaining their own kids!

Otin: I promise I will still remember you once I become rich and famous!

Baino said...

Oh Cat congratulations. I've been temping until 21st September too and know just what a relief it is to be back in the workforce. Even if I do work for the troll bitch from hell! The best thing? I get to enjoy my weekends immensely

CatLadyLarew said...

Baino: Congrats to you as well in finding something steady... even if it is with the troll bitch from hell! Suddenly weekends have so much more meaning!

The Peach Tart said...

congratulations on the new job. hope you love it.

I Wonder Wye said...

Congrats on the lovely week! Jobs, awards --all around good karma! The cat gods are smiling (or purring)....

ettarose said...

Congrats! I am jealous though. I want a job (whining hard) I am very happy that you not only found a job, but one that you love. That is rare indeed.

CatLadyLarew said...

Peach Tart: Thanks, it will be good to be able to pay my bills again!

I Wonder Wye: The cat gods are probably laughing!

ettarose: Thanks, darlin'. I think I finally whined hard enough that they got tired of it and broke down and gave me a job! Sending good thoughts your way for a job you love!

KaLynn said...

KaLynn: Thanks! I'm just off for my first day... I'll let you know how it goes!
