I can't tell you where I work new job is for a big, public company, and I can't tell you what it is.

Hey, so much the better. Now I can bitch about work.

Sick on my fourth day

How's that for an impressive start? I'm in the office for half a week when I come down with some horrific virus.

I felt fine when I woke up on Thursday, but by the time I got to the office, I had serious chills. During a conference call in the AM, I actually had to put my head down on my desk.

By lunch, I realized there was no way I would make it through the day. I headed home and slept through the afternoon, joining a brief conference call late in the afternoon.

Way to make a killer first impression, huh?

If I'm REALLY lucky, one of the kids will get sick for me next week...

A typical Aimee moment

On an average day, I don't stop moving until about 9:00 PM. Often, I'll crash out on the couch and fall asleep watching Law & Order (I'm addicted to the reruns).

I'll snooze for close to an hour or so, then rouse enough to drag my exhausted butt to the bedroom...

At which point I'll remember there's not only a wet wash that needs to go in the dryer, but a full load of dry things that need to be folded.

Weekend with Ig

Had such a great weekend with Ig (my 2 year old) while my big guys were up in Canada. He's so good when he's the "only child." If only I could figure out some way to avoid the screaming and tantrums when his brothers are home.

It was such a good weekend, in fact, I'm seriously bummed about going to work tomorrow -- even though it's my last week before starting the new gig. In a big way, I want to spend as much time with my co-workers as I can...I've worked with most of these people for nearly four years and loved just about every minute of it.

On the other hand, I don't want to go back and face the transitioning of projects, packing up my desk...and saying goodbye to everyone. This is going to be HARD.

I'll have a lot more to say about this during the week. Here's to hoping I actually get around to writing it.

Meanwhile, it's off to bed. I've got to head out early if I'm going to go into the city tomorrow. It'll be nice to enjoy one last day in my Park Avenue office. (Note that I've only spent *one other day* in my Park Avenue office.)

Marketer, Mom and Confessed Geek

I'm not a person who does anything half-assed. I'm (almost) as passionate about my career in online marketing as I am about raising my three little boys. If I didn't love what I do, how could I possibly leave them to go to work every day?

I already have a blog about being the mom of three asthmatic kids. I spend plenty of time and energy venting on that topic.

What I need to write about here is the stuff I love in the online space, as well as the whole balance thing. I'm not sure how it will all mesh together...but we'll see. I'll try to make it work!!
