One of my new jobs

The company Ben, Robyn and myself have worked for over the past 2-3 years just recently went bankrupt. Robyn and myself had been doing contract work after the babies were born so we were not technically employees at the time so we totally missed out on unemployment benefits. I have enough work as it is to not need it though.... on that note...

Amazingly within days, Less Everything, a company that produces some great online applications/products contacted me to start working with them. We had discussed possibly doing this earlier in the spring, but I was 8+ months pregos and we all decided to wait a bit. So that's the short of it.

I have been using their online product, Less Accounting for my freelance invoicing, expenses, etc...since last spring (2007) as a beta user and continue to use it today. I was a very active beta user and tried to provide tons of feedback on the product because I just fell in love. I had been struggling to use ugly huge QuickBooks for my tiny little side business (at the time, now I'm full time). I also started using their time-tracking product, Get More Honey.

Anyhow, I will be doing some fun things for them and it will be a nice change of scenery for me. See my "bio" on their website. Yup, I'm feeling pretty hip.

So far I have been testing their products for cross browser compatibility, sending out tweets (Twitter.com) and will start posting to the blog soon.

The life we live

Ben shared this video with me today. Maybe some of you can relate, but maybe most of you will just think it's just a cute video.

Ben.... you nailed the feeling... ha-ha! I just can't get over this video.
