Oh. My. Gosh. So the new job – it just doesn’t stop railroading its way through my life. I have literally not had a moment to respond to a voice mail let alone think about extra-curricular things like the blog since my first day on Monday.
The funny thing? I’m loving it.
I don’t know what little quirk in my personality made me someone who thrives on rapid-response high-stress situations but that’s exactly who I am. Maybe that’s part of what made me love baby-sitting and even now (despite everything) dream of the day when I will have a chance to be a Mom. All because those little moments in the day when you’re literally losing your left and right hands trying to figure out logistics and you have NO idea how you’re going to get to the other side…those moments? I come out with an adrenaline high a roller coaster junkie would recognize.
I’m screwed up.
Outside of that life has been relatively sane. The situation from the other day has been resolved…the how is a private matter (yes I know, here of all places I draw a line.) but suffice to say I’m relatively satisfied. I think I would have been pretty content with a few other alternatives but those aren’t to be so toss your hands up, roll those shoulders and keep on trucking is my philosophy.
The other great thing about this weekend was seeing my best-friend Shelly and her daughter again. Y’all her daughter is so freaking gorgeous and while I am a tad biased, her eyes. Oh her beautiful baby blue eyes have Auntie Stephanie wanting to buy her every giant bear in the mall. Luckily sanity and the knowledge of what her Mommy’s reaction would have been stopped me. Which left my wallet VERY thankful. We had a great time chatting and window-shopping in the mall before grabbing lunch. I love Shelly to death and though sometimes its hard because we do live several hours apart, and she is on a journey I can’t really relate to right now – I am so glad we’re able to have moments like we did this past weekend and prove that true friendships are the end all be all no matter what. I got lucky when I asked her to move in with me that freshman year!
We did do another thing this past weekend, but its such a funny story that I really need to make it a blog post. I’ll just whet your appetite by saying it involved “Mountain-Vision.”
I think once I get more up to date life wise I’ll be able to get back in the swing of things here but for now that gives you a quick idea of where things are.
How about y’all? How are YOU doing?
