Temporary Hiatus

Please excuse me while I take a temporary hiatus from blogging.  I've had a lot going on....a lot is a bit of an understatement actually.  So here's a short update....

My house is a total damn wreck right now, I'm in the middle of living through a home renovation.  While I honestly believe that the end result will be worth it, I'm getting pretty freakin frustrated that progress has been slow & there have been a few bumps in the road....from having to replace my entire back door (frame & all) to water spewing throughout my bathroom from a broken copper line.  Grrrr!!!  I love you house, but you're draining my bank account....REALLY!

Three weeks into the new job & I've had tons of "time to shine," but I'm getting an even bigger moment next week.  I worked last week with a senior manager who recognized my industry knowledge, my talent, my drive & my ambition.  After she sang my praises to several other executives, they jointly decided to bring me out to a new business opportunity next week.  I expressed my interest in sales, something I loved even at my prior job so next week I get my chance to work with the sales team to help us "win" a great opportunity.  Keep your fingers crossed folks, we're up against some tough competition. 

Life outside of work & this crazy ass home reno project...well life is insane.  My niece is growing like a weed, she was 5 months old on the 24th & she FINALLY has her first tooth.  She's such a cutie, love her!  I saw her today & she's all about chewing on my fingers & making sure she gets all kind of drool down my arm.  I went & saw Hot Tub Time Machine tonight with BFF, totally stupid movie.  The previews make it look so good & yes there were good parts, but it was crap for the most part!

We're supposed to have crappy weather tomorrow, so I hope to spend some time catching up on blog reading!! Hope all of yall are well!! I'll try to post more often....I promise!

Glad to hear things at work are going well! :)
Home renovations can always be so draining, not only emotionally, but on the bank account! Hang in there, things will get better.

Good luck! Good luck!!! I hope you sparkle and shine like a - hmm ... something extraordinarily sparkle-y and shiny!! :)

I can't believe you had a broken copper line - that had to have been a big sucks! I hope the renovations move more swiftly from now on with less setbacks!!
