Back to work for Mollie and me

As most of you read this I’m back at school, teachers begin today the students come next Monday. I’m not sorry to start back, but I am sorry I’ll have to get up so early. I’m also sorry to go from shorts and barefoot to long pants and shoes – not fun at all.

If you’ve heard all about my kids you can stand for a while you need to skip down to that last paragraph now…

Yesterday was Mollie’s first day. I promise I do remember that this is a spanko blog – and there have been spankings going on – but it takes me a while to get out of ‘mom mode’ once the house is empty again. Mollie’s day was extremely hectic, meetings that she felt lost in, things she needed to do on the computer – but the system hasn’t given her a password to be able to get online yet. She had a meeting at another school at 3:00, but people kept coming by her room to meet her and help her so she was late getting there, something she hates. And then as she left the meeting she came out to find her car wouldn’t start. Sigh…

We went over to boost her car off and take her to get a new battery, $160 for that, $400 deposit for the electricity, $600 deposit for the apartment, no Internet until sometime in September and that means no TV since they only use Netflex. She is determined to pay for all she needs and she’s been saving and I really admire her for that. She knows getting started in any new career is going to be rocky and scary at first and that things will quickly bet better. She’s trying to keep her sense of humor and late yesterday she sent me the following picture.

Tomorrow the new Cassie book comes out. I never know if that’s going to be one minute after midnight or one minute before the next midnight, but I’m posting about it anyway and I’ll have the buy links up as soon as I can. For those of you kind enough to go by my other site, PK Corey’s Reading Room, I’ll tell you now I’m putting the same post up at both places so please don’t feel you have to go by both – I’m just trying to get the word out to as many people as I can. As I’ve said before it’s hard to promote spanking books – if you like it I hope you’ll think of leaving a review on Amazon or telling other either on your blogs or if you have a friend or two who know about your interest. I’d appreciate all the help I can get so don’t forget to come by tomorrow.

Mollie's determination to pay for her own needs show what a wonderful job you and Nick have done in raising her. I'm sure that once the administrative glitches get ironed out, she will settle in and be an awesome teacher...just like her mom.

Working from home, I miss the socializing in the office but sure do love being able to work barefoot in my t-shirt and jeans. ;)

Looking forward to the new Cassie book!

Hugs and blessings...Cat

Hi PK, oh gosh, what a hectic first day for Mollie. I'm sure things will settle down quickly for her and she will be awesome :) It's always hard starting your first job. It's great that she is determined to pay for her own needs. She certainly seems to be landing on her feet. You and Nick can be very proud. Love the pic she sent you!

Getting back to early mornings and work clothes is tough. It's amazing how quickly it feels as though you've never been away.

Congratulations on the upcoming release! Really looking forward to this.

Hi PK, Mollie certainly has had heaps of expense with her unit and car. Never ending! Hope things settle down for her soon.
Can't wait for the new release of Cassie. Congratulations!

The first year of teaching can be a long one. Now you can be both mentor and mom. Congrats to Mollie!

Am very excited about the new Cassie book. Like meeting an old friend!

Happy Ella

Sounds like a real hectic day for Mollie but she will be great and will soon get into the swing of things.

Congrats on the new book. Look forward to reading it.

Poor Mollie, but isn't it always like that - a welcome to the real world, and then life settles down, or at least you know you can handle whatever comes your way.

You know you can come promote on my blog(s) just send me the blips.Not sure how much that generates but I know all about promo and getting the word out. So tough. Personally, I can't wait to read.

Good luck with the new school year.

Good luck to Mollie and happy and hooray for the next Cassie book.

Good luck to Molly from me as well, not sure why introductions to the adult/real world have to be so hard....

And good luck to you for the new school year!

I'm so very proud of Mollie working hard to make her own way and stand on her own two feet. And also happy that we are close enough to help when she really needs it.

I know I'll miss the contact with other teachers. Becoming a hermit is something I'm really going to have to watch for.

What an introduction Mollie had! It always seems to happen like that! I am sure she will have better days ahead!
Great about a new Cassie book! I'm excited and can't wait!
I started back today myself! Meetings all week! My butt will be sore for a different reason!
Hope this year is exciting for you!

I think today was much calmer for her. She'll do great once everything settles down. I'm feeling particularly calm this year. Pleasant boss for my last year.

At 7:21 PM, Blogger PK said...

I think it went pretty dang quick too! I'm really excited about the new book!

At 7:22 PM, Blogger PK said...

That first step into adulthood can really be expensive. I guess that's why some kids fail to launch. This is going to be a great book for those who love Cassie.

At 7:25 PM, Blogger PK said...

I enjoyed my first year teaching until I got to my second and realized how much better it was! I really think you're going to like this one.

At 7:26 PM, Blogger PK said...

I guess starting any new job is rough, yep she'll do fine once everything settles.

At 7:29 PM, Blogger PK said...

No one told her being a grown up was easy. I'll be in touch about promoting. Thanks Leigh.

At 7:33 PM, Blogger PK said...

Thanks Meredith I'm excited about both Mollie and the book.

At 7:38 PM, Blogger PK said...

I'm sure others have had it worse - but it was a hectic day for her. I had a wonderful beginning today - very calm and peaceful with out the old boss there.

At 7:39 PM, Blogger PK said...

Yes Minelle, I started to day with the meeting marathon. But I'm okay it was a good first day. I hope your year goes better than you are imagining.

Hi PK,

If she has time, I have a book suggestion for Mollie (and all working women, really). I graduated from college in 2011 with a degree in mechanical engineering so I know all the newness and becoming completely independent can be a bit overwhelming. For my birthday this year, a new lady in our HR department gave me this book called Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg. It's an excellent read and very motivational for women. (Amazon Link :http://www.amazon.com/Lean-In-Women-Work-Will/dp/0385349947)

Good luck to both of you with starting the new school year!
