Finally, my first post of the year. You know it’s bad when people (Kimberly) are taking an e-mail pulse because you haven’t blogged in a while! Sorry guys, I really have no excuse other than just pure laziness. It’s not like I’m tired or worn out, I had 8 days off and then worked normal hours the last two days and have the next two off again.
My trip really went well, I’m still living on that high, along with the general feeling that this is going to be a good year. It can’t get much worse than last, so at least I have that going for me. I brought home a cold, thanks to my sweet little nephew, who decided my going away gift should be a handful of coughs right in my face, rather than a kiss.
Today was my first day off since I started the new job that didn’t involve me driving 10-1/2 hours or being sick, and I have to say, it was kind of nice. I tidied up the house, made some goals for myself, and now I’m taking some me time to chill and relax. Tomorrow is homework day for me, so I figured I’d get it all in while I could.
I’ve had two weeks off of school, and I forgot how easy it is to fall out of the swing of things. Since I go year-round, this is the only break I get until the four weeks between my last class and my capstone course, which, by the way, is only 33 weeks away. Not that I’m counting. And as I worked my way through four months of filing, along with my annual file-purging ritual, I decided to go for my Master’s when all is said and done. If I can get started right after I graduate in August, I can have my Master’s by next Christmas. It’s a bold move, but I think I can handle it. It’s only another 65 weeks of instruction, why not?
My job is going really well and I’m happy I made the switch. Even though this week (and month) are particularly slow event wise, there is still plenty for me to do. I did the event calendar for the year and come March, we are going to be slamming. I love it. Which means (Pam) lots of wedding stories. Right now, I have at least two a week starting in late May through the end of summer.
Other than that, I have nothing terribly exciting to report. I’ve just been trying to keep my emotions in check since the last couple of weeks have been a major rollercoaster. Then again, the end of the year always does that to me, as I spend time reflecting back on the year. This year, it just flooded back a lot of bad memories and sour emotions. But I know I’ll be okay. I think the one thing that life taught me last year was that I could get through anything.
