I am officially a working mom. A nine-to-five, eat lunch at your desk, come home, make dinner and stare blankly at your kids while they notify you of all that they still stand in need of that, by the way... only you can supply... working mom. They possess NO idea of how impossible it all sounds as it rolls effortlessly off of their little tongues. They're so cute when they're clueless.
irony in all of this is really quite funny (not). You see, my new job
as an administrative assistant in this office requires so very little of
me other than my presence. In essence, I get paid to be here and
that's about it. I answer a few phone calls but spend the rest of my
time trying to find something, ANYTHING to do. So ironic when you consider the hours of tasks waiting for me at the end of the day.
So I have been reading Advanced Google Adwords by Brad Geddes. Yup...a real page turner.
I'm just bored enough and curious enough though, that I keep turning those
pages. I'm learning all about Search Engine Optimization and Pay Per
Click and I'm doing it because I really want to know if it's
possible to get Rosemary Hawley Jarman to not be the Rosemary 'H' Jarman that pops up when I Google my name (yeah...like you've never tried
it). She's an author too. I've never actually read any
of her stuff but I think I would if I ever came across a copy.
In addition to my name twin,
there's a blogger out there (not of the Rosemary persuasion) who has a blog name almost exactly like mine. 'My unintentional life' ...only with
dashes between the words. C'mon...name taken, move on! Ever heard of a
thesaurus? Accidental, random,
inadvertant, unexpected, extemporaneous. These are all other words that she could have used to describe her life instead of
'unintentional', but hey... I'm sure she didn't do it on purpose. ; )
should be easier on my blog buddy. We have more in common than our
title after all. She too just recently moved back in with her parents.
We both walk the walk of shame each morning as we emerge from our
basement lairs. Except I do have her on this one thing: at least I
didn't bring cats with me when I moved back in. That' something, right?
