Why I Love Working for “The Man”

August 4, 2007 at 10:41 pm (Things I love)

There is something nice, I’m sure, about being self-employed; being your own boss and all of that. I however, prefer the steady paycheck (knock on wood) of corporate America. Sure, my husband works a lot of hours, in a cubicle,  and he no longer comes home for lunch. He is also always dealing with less than sympathetic corporate types. On the plus side though, we have great benefits (like having someone else pack our house when we moved). One of the perks of being a corporate wife is getting fun things delivered after having a  baby. With this baby, we got not one, but two, fun things. One came addressed to the new baby and said “Happy Birthday!” How fun is that?!

As a side note, we went to see The Bourne Ultimatum today. Very fun movie for me. I can always watch Matt Damon as a super assassin! I can pretty much watch Matt Damon as anything! Two thumbs up!

    What a great gift from Corporate America! Excellent my dear! Keep updating us with new pictures of the little guy. And by the way, since you and I are the only ones not going to be in Halifax, I say we do something frivilous as an ode to Grandpa dearest! Say…..new shoes…..new shirt….new……
