Sorry for my severe absence. I really have SO many things that I want to post about, but it has been utter madness around here. First off, my computer crashed so I'm using Ryan's. I hate his computer. The keyboard is way too big or spaced out, or whatever. And you have to literally PUNCH the keys to make them type. So here I am, typing away at a sentence and it is taking me FOR.... EV... ERRRRRR. Ugh. Secondly, I started my new job on the 23rd.... we are so insanely busy at work that I've worked way beyond my shift hours to get stuff done. I will certainly enjoy the paycheck, but my days are going by so quickly because I'm spending so much time at work. Oh, and not to mention, I sort of got a semi-promotion of sorts about a week and a half into the job. So now, I'm supervising/training people to do what I did for about a week and a half. I'm about 90% positive that the promotion is not temporary (meaning, that when all the new people are done starting ((we get about 100ish people starting at my place of work every couple of days)), I do not think they will place me back in what I was originally doing), but I guess there is always the possibility. I really enjoy what I do though.... both the first position that I was hired to do, and now the increased responsibility.... so even if the "promotion" is just a temporary one, what I'm doing under those responsibilities is a huge resume builder, so I'm good all around!
I gave up on the Couch to 5K program. The program taught me that I am not a runner... and that the only running I will likely ever do is when I'm running from something trying to attack me. So it's back to the ho-hum elliptical until SportsQuest (the new sports complex around here) opens. I'm hoping that they will have better equipment than the gym I currently work out at, or that they will have a greater variety of classes and times. Right now, I'm trying my hardest to get up and go to the gym at 5 am every morning, Monday through Friday, since the time I get home from work is typically so varied... but it's a tough go. I'm working so hard at work that I have found that I need sleep SO much more than when I did when I was teaching! Here's to trying though.... it has to burn some calories, right?!
So I'm hoping that in the coming week, I'll be on the road to getting my computer back. Once I do, I have loads of pics to upload. And, I want to follow in the footsteps of some of my fellow blog buddies and clear out my closet by selling some gently used clothing here. I have some stuff that is pre-Campbell that I just don't have the faith I'll fit back into ever again (thank you hips, for permanently moving approximately 2 inches wider). That being said, if you are a size 6(ish) and like Diane Von Furstenburg (spelling?) dresses and Citizens of Humanity jeans, be on the lookout hopefully in the next 2 weeks.... I'll be cleaning out my closet!
