The Good Stuff in a short version with short sentences  
So I suppose I feel secure enough to admit that I managed to land a new job as a trainer/instructor for a company that teaches different software and IT thinguses.

The thing that's strange is that I think they might actually be relatively sane.

... a non-crazy workplace? Me? What? Really?

As far as I can determine, the challenges are going to be 1.) not enough instructors, so the class load builds up fast, and 2.) traveling to/from client sites.

But they're not crazy. And I'm making almost twice as much as I did in Pittsburgh. And they're not crazy. And they've bought me tatertots! (Guess I'm a cheap date after all.)

I need a new wardrobe. The only problem is I'm pretty much fashion challenged and can't wear heels 'cause 1.) my feet are wimps, and 2.) I'm going to be standing all day teaching. Any helpful hints?

That's good to hear! I especially like the part of you not working with crazy people anymore. :D

As for shoes... I don't even know; I'm not great with fashionable shoes. But adding awesome insoles is totally recommended where you can.

Target has AWESOME, cute, and cheap flats in a million colors (especially when they go on clearance). Also flat boots are A-OK anymore.

Oh I agree! I love browsing those clearance sections at Target and finding some awesome gems.


I rarely wear heels for the same reasons you have, Anne. Although it gives your butt muscles a good workout, it is too much of a pain. The school I work with has a business-casual policy, and I've been getting away with well-cut dress pants pair with awesome flats (on very cold days, I don't even take off my snow boots!).

this pair combines snow boots and flats!

Re: this pair combines snow boots and flats!
OMG That's awesome! Too bad spring is coming and I'm leaving Wisconsin for Florida. That would be so useful.
