Nothing big to add here, just want to keep my blog active in your reader. I am still behind in reading, I don’t know if I will ever catch up. I appreciate everyone who is so kind to come by here to be supportive when I have not done the same for all of you.
I have had three full days in on the new full time job. I almost have an office space that is liveable-no windows, quite small, but out of the way of the office hubbub. As one of the guys in the office says, “I like to run below the radar”.
My big life change is still in a holding pattern. I have taken some small steps. I have had to prioritize the life adjustments I am making right now. Settling into the job has been on the top of the list recently.
The two oldest granddaughters are here for the weekend. Lots of fun, giggles, and silliness. A lot of busyness. Much energy on the part of Husband and I. I think it will get easier as we have them here more often, getting into a routine, figuring out the boundaries and rules here. They are such good little girls. They just have a lot of energy, and the oldest is a born negotiator. She will make an excellent lawyer some day. Our nickname for the younger one is “monkey” as in “monkey see monkey do”. The oldest has not yet appreciated the power she has in her hands, but I suppose she soon will take advantage of that. They are just very sweet right now.
Our winter is still the one that wasn’t. The ground is brown, the days have been sunny and relatively warm. I could almost live with winter if it were like this each year. The most common local comment on the weather is that “we will pay for this later”. We are such a bunch of pessimists. I think the fewer days of hard winter on the front end of the season are just that many fewer days of winter, no matter what happens farther into the season. We are just one day closer to April. As I am still in the midst of the winter doldrums no matter the weather, April cannot come soon enough.
Still waiting to get my computer back in action. I found someone who would work on it from the office. He has been able to save most of the data (thank goodness!) and is trying to figure out a way to blank it out and start over. I hope it works. I am getting very tired of using Husband’s computer. I am sure that he is getting tired of sharing.
Will be back-eventually….keep me on your blogroll!
