Whew! Well, welcome back. I apologize for having been stagnant for as long as I have been. Vacation yanno. You go on a vacation and when you get back, you need a vacation from your vacation. I seriously needed one, too. Of course my vacations, as you would expect are not really vacationy. I mean, Disney was great! I had a blast running around the parks and getting on rides. My kids trying to disappear into the massive crowds and the constant sound of my dad telling anyone and everyone with a kid how full their hands were was not at all grey-hair inducing. In all fairness, my dad lost a chunk of his brain after a motorcycle accident, so his actions are very forgivable. That's a blog post for another day, though. Fortunately, my kid's also got tired of hearing me holler at them and soon learned to stay close by. The part of my vacation that wasn't very vacationy was bringing my work with me. Alas, this trip was coordinated just the day after my spring break from school was over. As a result, I was in class while making a splash at splash mountain. I was in the dark of space mountain while in the darkness of confusion in my statistics class. I was enjoying the hard work of costumed characters while describing the motivational techniques that make Disney a successful company for my organizational behavior class. Ok, enough of that. You get the point.
As many of you know, when I got home, I learned that my cat, Mickey, died. It was one in the morning. I had just done six hours of driving. I wasn't exactly content with seeing my beloved friend having passed. Unfortunately, he was an indoor/outdoor cat. Though we have been in this house for 9 years and he's never had a problem coming and going as he pleased, it was obvious he had come into some trouble that night. The pet sitter had last seen Mickey at 8:30pm and he was happy-normal Mickey. I admit, I am still very suspicious of what occurred that night, but I have since realized that replaying the thoughts do not help me. That explained, we can move on.
Before I left for Disney, myself and my future self communicated again, and we agreed that it was time to begin our relationship. When I returned home, me and my future self further coordinated the path of our future. I am now in training mode for a long-standing marketing company that is on its way to my neck of the woods (that's in GA for those of you who don't know). I won't drop too many specific details, but the company has been around for over a decade, and the leadership has me blown away. From the first time we spoke I realized this was a person/company I wanted in my life. The only downside is that until this company gets here, I'm still at home responsible for doing my wifely-motherly-and studently duties. No my grades have not suffered any. In fact, in both classes (Statistics and Organizational Behavior) I've gotten 100% on every assignment and test I've submitted. AND I still find time for a hardcore work out and some kntting/crochet. BooYah! That's what I'm talking about. I think someone's getting a new pair of shoes with their first paycheck. Why not? I've earned it!
By now, you probably have a better idea as to why I haven't posted anything in a few weeks. I do, however, have a list of items I wanted to post about. Some ideas, some just random thoughts. The point is: excuse my absence, and stick around--we're just getting warmed up.
