One Year

OneyearHappy One Year Anniversary to me!! It was one year ago today that I started my new job at SLO Superior Court. Today it feels like time has just flown by - I can't believe it's been one whole year since I started working here -  yet I feel like I've been here forever (but in a good way!).  These lovely flowers and nice card were given to me by the totally awesome members of the Civil Support Staff in celebration of this milestone. They are quite simply some of the nicest people I've ever worked with. And, I'm not just saying that on the off-chance one of them might read this. I really mean it. I am so incredibly blessed.

Silver Anniversary

It's been 25 years since my father died. 25 years. It seems impossible that it could possibly have been that long; sometimes it feels like yesterday. I have a lot of terrific memories of my dad, but for some reason, I can't seem to put them into words. Like, somehow, if I write it all down, or say it out loud, it'll all vanish. But, today, I wanted to put a little something together. To remember him, and share him with my friends.

Monday Positives

Okay, I'm digging pretty deep for these, so I apologize if they sound lame, but seriously, it's all I have right now.

  1. I finished She's All That (by Kristin Billerbeck) which was a totally fun and very enjoyable read, and have started on the sequel A Girl's Best Friend which I'm sure will be just as wonderful.
  2. My aunt and uncle from New York are coming to visit this week. I'm really excited because I haven't seen my aunt for a couple of years at least.
  3. I'm taking off next Monday so I can spend time with the fam.
  4. It's been cooler at night, so I've been able to get some sleep.
  5. I decided to join some of my on-line journaller friends in Chicago for what is currently being called "JournalNon", since it's not really a JournalCon, but just a bunch of us getting together for karaoke, sightseeing and drunken debauchery.
