Building blocks to bibbedy bobbedy, boo
07.31.08 - 2:46 pm (CT)
I remember telling my kids as they were growing up, that in life there are a series of building blocks, where future dealings, of one sort or another, can't be dealt with without the very knowledge or experience they were shunning at the time. It mostly had to do with schoolwork, like in math where they saw no reason to learn something they thought useless, but later when they went to do something else they thought rather useful there would be that old "useless" canard coming in to play
I give you addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division combined with the order of operations to make quadratic equations so much easier to understand and perform
Mr. Engineer and Mr. Actuarial Analyst.
In the work world, the same occurs with a variety of experiences that each by itself seems rather mundane, but as each is added to the pile on your résumé they can add up to a rather interesting way to make you uniquely qualified for a position, which puts you at the head of the pack for a really great job. THAT has just happened to me
, where my experiences as a dental hygienist, bookkeeper, corporate secretary, Webmaster, business owner, manager, office manager, and President of the local Chamber of Commerce caught the eye of a hiring manager for a new business venture. She saw the blocks of my experiences stacking up to make me THE person for the job to run the business end of a new medical spa
I start a week from Monday.
Put it all together and what do you have, but different parts coming together to make the whole of just about anything in life
a quadratic equation, a career, or even a nation
bibbedy bobbedy, bibbedy bobbedy, bibbedy bobbedy, boo.
Embarking on a new...

I've got something up my sleeve, something I've been working on for a couple of months, something that looks quite promising to payoff in a comfortable sort of way. If it works out and at this point, there's no reason it shouldn't I will be more in my milieu and comfortably so. It will take one of the loads, a big one at that, off my shoulders, so that I can proceed with my life on that proverbial road not taken
the one that I did in fact take just a few years ago that has led me onward to my future
Today it's Bob Harper

I still can't seem to make up my mind on a name for my little coonhound
, Bob or Harper
, so today it is Bob Harper, said all in one breath, almost if it were one word
kind of like MacGyver. Maybe I should just spell it that way, as in BobHarper
it could start a new trend, one that, if I was not the one starting it, I'd rightly criticize as a real pain in the neck for the poor thing stuck with such a moniker. Yep, yep, yep, I'm absolutely right that I'd be wrong to do that
although, it can't be any worse than sticking some kid with a hyphenated last name.

Today I took my new puppy, Harper
, (yes, that's what I'm calling him
today anyway) to work with me, so the vet could take a once over of him to check for all of the usual stuff that needs to be checked with a new puppy. He had some of the usual easy-to-solve problems, plus some extra ones caused by the fact that he had been homeless for who knows how long. He's now on the mend with the help of count 'em 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 meds that promise to put the 3 month-old 20.4 pounder back into the pink.
