What a looonnggg week!

I prepared myself mentally for my new 30 mile commute to work – good news its a holiday!  Light traffic!!!

Last week the owner of the company I used to work at passed away, so services were on Monday night and Tuesday night. This was the first time I had been to a Catholic church since we moved down from NJ. The architecture was very modern – made me miss up north and my little church that I grew up in.

The rest of the week wasn’t too bad. A birthday lunch for my boss, an international potluck lunch and a welcome lunch for me – I haven’t eat so much food in so long! I am missing working out at lunch and I was only able to run on Thursday, as on Tuesday, Ava wanted to join me and we ended up walking around the block.  I have to find a way to get more exercise into my day….

Looking forward seeing Twilight Breaking Dawn 2 with my friends and a fairly quiet weekend!


New Old Job

Today I started a new job….I went back to work with my old company.  I am saddened that it didn’t work out, but I do believe things happen for a reason. I will miss my friends that I made in the past three years – definitely will keep in touch with them! Am going to miss the gym and working out at lunchtime, and the short drive to work. Looking at the positive side of things – now I HAVE to run after work – so that means more pavement time 🙂

July already – really?

So while I have gotten better, I am still coughing and feeling congested.  I ran on Monday on the treadmill – didn’t feel too bad.  I haven’t run outside because I feel that between the heat and my chest being so congested – it might be a recipe for disaster.  Even my husband asked me last night why I am not running in the evenings…..just too hot!

Fourth was nice and quiet for us.  James worked, so Ava and I went to Regal Cinemas Summer Movies and finally saw Hugo  – LOVED IT!!!  Afterwards we went to Menchies and enjoyed our froyo outside – it was a little overcast – so it was nice just to sit and enjoy the day off.  We picked up Desi and ran some errands – went home and made pasta salad and when I looked at the clock – it was four!  The day flew by.  I ended my day by sitting outside and reading more of Karen Marie Moning – The Highlander’s Touch – I never thought of myself as the romance novel reader –but throw in some fantasy stuff and apparently I am!  Nighttime finally came and Desi setoff some fireworks, as did our neighbor across the street.  The kids loved it – me, I was just glad that I could walk into my house and go to bed.  Glad I didn’t go to one of the city sponsored fireworks – traffic is just a nightmare getting out of those things.

Work is being handled one day at a time.  We recently had an independent interviewer come in and talk to us because office morale is so low – but then the company goes and does things that just leaves all of us scratching our heads.  Every day I dream of going back home to New York.  Maybe – one day (sigh).


Bad days, and more bad days

It has been a while since I last wrote. I have been sick almost the entire time. Had to go back to the doctor and do another round of antibiotics. She did mention that I would have my cough for a little bit longer. So in the meantime I have been reading. I finished the Blood Fever Series, which was awesome! Thinking about buying the set – either for my Kindle or a hard copy. Speaking of Kindle – I love mine. I have it in my purse all the time, so whenever I have a few minutes, I can take it out and read it. I sat by the pool yesterday, while Ava swam, and loved the no glare. Started reading the Highlander series, also by Karen Marie Moning, its good, but not like Blood Fever, maybe it will get better. Also read Abraham Lincoln Vampire Killer – it was okay, don’t know how it became a movie – definitely not something I would have read and said – can’t wait to see it on the big screen.

At work, more bad news. Was passed over for the promotion. Was told that my work and work ethics were not good – I have never heard any other employer in my 20+ years say anything remotely close to what I was told. Just another day in the F state as my friends in NY say.  I don’t even want to get into who actually got the position.

After three weeks of not running due to being sick, I started running again – on the treadmill at lunchtime – it’s too freakin’ hot to run outside. I did miss it.

But now I have to think about what to do – part of me wants so badly to return to NY. I want to earn a descent salary, be respected at work, work in a professional environment, heck I even miss the commute to NY! But then again, we have our house here. Ava has grown up here – this is all she knows. When I think about Stephen and Desiree’s future here – I get sick to my stomach – there is nothing here for them. At least in NY they have a chance for a future. I am not the crying type – but right now, that is exactly what I want to do.
