When the kitchen faucet finally broke last week, I figured I'd be spending my Saturday replacing the entire assembly. Turned out, it wasn't as bad as I thought!
We at Sup Co. were originally going with the Pirates theme for Halloween, but changed it today to Harry Potter. In the spirit of the new theme, I went and got myself sorted:
Jeez, it's been so long since I posted anything here I totally forgot my login info! How sad is that? Gah!
Anyway, things have been crazy. Good, but crazy. My new job is still going well, though it's kicking my butt and taking names nearly every day. Over the past two weeks, I've twice fallen asleep on the bus on the way home, that's how dang tired I am. I can only hope I haven't done anything embarrassing as snore or drool on the shoulder of the person sitting next to me! It's hard, all this filing and running around and filing some more! I can't wait until everyone's back from vacation and I start getting trained on what I was actually hired to do.
More soon. Off to watch The Biggest Loser now.
I haven't done a meme thing for quite a while, so I thought I'd do this one. I decided to put it in my journal, since I haven't been writing much lately.
Here are this week's Positives:
1. It's Monday, but I have the day off because it's a holiday. A paid one, even!
2. I finished my Corporate Law class last week, and even though I'm sure I reeked on the final, I don't care!
3. I have a home, food, clothing and a job, and I know my family and friends are healthy and safe. I've been taking most of those things for granted lately, but not any more. Not after Katrina.
I can't really think of any more. Quite frankly, I'm feeling a little guilty for trying to even think of some positive things to list when so many of my fellow Americans are suffering so much. I try not to think about it too much, but I can't help it. I see something on the news or the headline of the paper, and it just gets me. This isn't happening somewhere else in the world, it's happening here. It's been ripping my heart out. I'm trying to stay positive, and trying to enjoy my life, but sometimes . . . sometimes it's just hard.
Today was yardwork day, a day to mow and trim and make the lawn look presentable and pretty. It was also the day I decided to tackle the overgrown bush in the backyard. Read all about it here!
