Working Nine To Five....

what a way to make a living. This is the only sentence that I can remember of the song right now. lol!

Morgan got a J-O-B!!!!!! Praise the Lord!! She went in for an interview at Braum's and the manager hired her on the spot! She starts this Saturday, May 2nd. She is soooooo excited, but very nervous. She won't actually be working from 9-5. By law, she can only work 6 hours a day. The manager will start her out working only 2 days a week (Saturday and Sunday). It actually works out great. Her schedule will be 11:30-5:30 for both days. She'll still get to sleep in on Saturday and will still be able to attend first service at church on Sunday. So, again....it works out great! She loves the schedule. The manager has already told Morgan that if she proves that she can handle it, she'll increase her hours at the beginning of summer right away. Soooooooooooooooooo, she better prove herself pretty quick is what I'm saying! lol!

I've already starting making my "WANT" list for her first paycheck. I want a manicure and a pedicure. I want to go out to eat. I want a new outfit. I need a new pair of shoes and a purse to match them. Okay, she didn't go for this at ALL!!! So why does it work with her "WANT" list?

In fact, she made it very clear that, after tithing, she will be spending the rest of her first paycheck on herself before adding to her savings with future checks. Can you believe that? Okay, I know....typical teenager for ya!!

Anyhow, we are all very happy for her!

Morgan's prom was last night! She looked beautiful!!! We are waiting for the photographer to get the CD back to us before I can post any pictures of her and her boyfriend. They both looked awesome and I can hardly wait to tell and show you more about their night.

Until then~~~~

Make it a great week ahead friends!

I'm looking forward to seeing the prom pics. Bo's prom is NEXT weekend. Bill's been in charge of the After-Prom Party for 5 years. It's going to feel strange for all of that to come to an end....Bo graduates this year. *sigh*

Hope you have a great week! :o)

Congrats to Morgan on the big first job, Mother's Day is coming up so maybe she will surpiise you with a nice pedicure or something. Hard to tell with teenagers though, just when mine breaks my heart, she still melts my heart.

I'm so happy for her. I am thinking about her - she should be right in the middle of her shift about now - and I pray that she enjoys it and is surrounded by good people!

Tess Jones said...

That is totally cool! I remember my first job I was so excited and I spent my check before I even made it. Funny, at least she is thinking about saving. LOL, I never thought once about that.
