    Ladies and Gentlemen...

    In case you missed Lisa's latest... she has a job.
    The kind you get paid in dollars and cents for.

    So, I think this deserves a "starting a new job virtual party".

    I'm bringing...
    - A tray of lunch-box cookies (half of which need to go in the freezer for her lunch boxes...)
    - A new lunch box
    - and a pair of high-quality running shoes

    Who else will join?

    I am so THRILLED!! I hope that she likes the work and her coworkers and her boss(es) and that the money is good and plentiful!

    I will bring:

    appropriate comfortable clothing
    audiobooks to enjoy during the drive to and from work
    small reusable containers to put applesauce or fruit in to keep in the freezer so they serve as cold packs to keep her lunch cold and they give her a nice treat with lunch

    For party food I will bring homemade blueberry muffins with-streusel on top, chocolate covered strawberries, and my amazing cappuccino ice cream (NSFW with all the brandy in it!)

    Personal organizer, so she can keep track of everything, now that she is going to be busy making for REAL, LIVE MONEY!

    And a crockpot with one of those recipe-card sized spiral notebooks filled with crock pot recipes for the busy, newly employed mom.

    ******CONGRTULATIONS, LISA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    P.S. Oh! And grasshoppers, for those of us not gainfully employed. :O)


    Someone has to do the celebrating.

    Hopeless, lol, I'll be tossing your Margaritas. on the other hand with my organic low salt diet I don't have a darn fun thing to bring so guess I'll "tote" the last half of a cheap bottle of red wine that was used to celebrate the 4th with my 86 year old neighbor! YEAH, Hound. DDD

    Lol I thought it was a celebration party not stuff for Lisa to take work. My bad ;). No margaritas for work then. How about some casserole dishes she can freeze and heat up when she gets home from her JOB!

    Can't think of a better reason to celebrate!!!!:hi5:

    Since wine and margaritas are already going to be there I am going to bring salsa and chips to go with the margaritas along with a fruit trifle to go with the wine!!:wine:

    Aww. You guys are the bestest family ever. :)

    I'm still having to pinch myself to believe it is real. Best yet, it looks like I might be able to get the shift I want.....which is nights. (I don't do early morning that well because sleeping at night is an issue)

    It will be hard work........I expect to be worthless when I come home for the first couple of weeks until I get used to it......but I should be able to pay the bills just fine as they have a LOT of overtime.

    And here I was thinking of getting her a daisy water bottle...lol.

    I guess I will have to look for Daisy slippers to soothe her tired feet when she gets home.

    Congrats Lisa. You deserve it so much.
