Working and Playing Hard

Hi folks!

I know I haven't posted in over a month. So much for my resolution of posting more frequently. I have been busy with work. Some of you may or may not remember that I only work for about half the year. I work about four months (Jan-Apr) doing taxes for a large franchise. I am actually an office manager so that takes up most of my day. My only day off is Sundays right now. So if I am scarce, chances are I am at my office. I promise come April 16th you will be hearing from me a lot more. But since we have passed "peak" I am going to try to post at least once a week. So without further ado, here are a couple of photos of me at work.

Hanging out at at my desk.

In other news, I got two wonderful treats yesterday.

The first treat is a brand new laptop. My laptop was used and a rental. We still had a large sum left on it and for the same price we were able to by a much better quality laptop with more memory, faster speeds, etc. This is the one I got. I named it Cocoa. You can't tell much in the photo but it is a deep brown color.

My second treat was my new camera. I got the Nikon D5000 with an additional 70-300mm telescopic lens. I can't wait to take pictures with it!

Welcome back, Jessica. It is good to know that you are progressing well in work and life. I was wondering what happened to you. Congratulations on your new computer and your Nikon camera is a dream. Wow!

Glad to hear from you! I want to say happy belated birthday - that camera is one bad mama-jama! lol Lovely photos.

And I'm a tax pro too! Though I'm not working this season because I wasn't able to get my re certifications done in time due to crazy life circumstances. I miss it terribly!

Jessica, I would never have pegged you as a tax office worker. You strike me as too colorful and creative to be bogged down in paperwork and numbers.
