Yes, I know, I’m reaching today. Once again, it’s 11:30pm, and I’m only just starting my blog. I’ll be glad when November is over and I can cut back to a more reasonable blog or two per week. Maybe then I’ll actually be able to come up with interesting content…
For those of you who don’t know, I am the Resident Manager for a Homeowner’s Association on the Oregon Coast. The neighborhood is made up of 35 single family homes, 10 condominiums, 107 townhomes and 30 lots that haven’t been built upon yet. I am the only employee.
Now, I know what you’re thinking…”But Jen, if you’re the only employee, who do you blame when something is wrong?” For the answer to that question, I remind you that the URL to this blog is ALWAYS-WRITE.com…because ALWAYS-RIGHT.com was not available. (haha)
While it’s true that working alone day in and day out with no one to help get the work done can sometimes be a bit bothersome, here are just a few reasons why it ain’t quite as bad as you might think…
- I get to work with some stellar local talent. I mean, check out this 8 1/2 x 11″ business card. It’s short. It’s sweet. It’s to the point. You’re not left wondering just what exactly is the nature of this man’s business. Got moles? Ted is your man.
- People bring me wine. (These 3 bottles were all from today…I kid you not!) And occasionally flowers.
- The view could be worse…
- I get paid to walk around the neighborhood and…look at stuff.
- I get to spend my lunch hour at the beach every day (that it’s not pouring down rain and hail with 80 mph winds…)
BONUS REASON: But the best reason of all is that I get to take my puppy to work with me every day.
