I like my job.

There, I said it.

I like my company.  I like our projects.  I like our leadership.  I like our office.  And I like our location.  I like that I have two monitors, a fast enough computer, and plenty of resources.

I am grateful.

Via Caledonian Expedition





Life is funny.  The things we expect.  The things we hope for.  The things we plan for....
Some mornings you wake up, and it's just all, funny.

Things I know are ridiculous, but do anyway:

Take constant photos.  Of food, people, feet, signs, skylines, big buildings from their base, cracks in the sidewalk. Really if it's something outside of my own head, it's probably in a photo someplace in my hard drive.

Drive to the bus stop.... at the end of my street.  It is less than a 10 minute walk.  But more and more often, I  grab my keys, run to my car, and drive 5 blocks down the street.  Park.  Hop out.  And walk the last three blocks.  I often wonder if some neighbor isn't watching from their kitchen table, scoffing at their lazy neighbor.  It's really not laziness.  I love the walk. I just hate it when it's "walk or coffee."  Coffee almost always wins.  Especially, if it's raining.

Lately, I drive to the bus stop at the top of the ridge - it takes me less time oddly enough to get there (though it's further) and the bus is some how a shorter route than my usual one.  And I ain't walking that huge hill each morning.  But before you judge, I walk plenty once I get downtown.

Pee every 15 minutes.  I don't know when or how it happened, but I became an old lady.  Or a toddler.  I swear, I head to the bathroom so many times a day. I think it started because I was bored at my last job and needed an excuse to get up and take mental breaks every hour or so.... now, I'm just ruined.

Read Nicholas Sparks.  There, I said it.  Loved him in high school.  I haven't been reading his books for years now, and decided to give Safe Haven a try.  It was terrible.  What happened to him?  But then again, I still finished.... in fact, I read the last 1/3 of it in one night. (Which is a big deal for me.) So, ridiculous, but still I got hooked.

Friday, April 12, 2013

Hours until my Beau lands back in this rainy state and I'm struggling to put my heart into work today. I'd rather be sleepy, sipping copious amounts of coffee and watching the clock (wait - doing that part already)... wandering neighborhoods and exploring or just watching movies in Beau's blacked out apartment - old crocheted blankets hung over all the windows. Awg! Work. Oh well, I get a quick coffee break to see that hairy face in a few hours... and then it's the final push to the weekend. A much needed and long-waited for date night, followed by a long weekend with the Tens as we learn how to bar tend. :)  By the end of next weekend, K & the Tens will be available for hiring for all your special events and dinner parties.  (Okay, the name needs help, and I'm sure the boys won't mind I just started a business venture for them. Beau has already mentioned it.) ;)

HOURS!!!
