I could start out this blog saying, “Oh, I’m such a bad, bad, terrible human being for not updating my blog–oh, my poor fans that read this blog loyally, I have disappointed you. I am not worthy, I am NOT worthy!”
But, eh, I’ve been busy. It’s a wonder that I have managed to change my clothes. 🙂
Well, as I have mentioned before, I was rotated to a new client, which has its ups and downs. I am not sure that I am too enamored with my new boss, but I think I can work past it.
I was struggling (and still am, a little bit) with God’s design for my life. I think that right now, this is what God has given me and I should do it with “gusto” as a friend put it, and use this time to figure out what I am good at and what I am not good at. It’s not exactly morale building to work so hard for so little monetary reward, but with any luck, a promotion is in my not-so-distant future. Hopefully I’ll be ready for one in less than a year, but I’m not holding my breath. My employer has been taking longer and longer to put through promotions 😦
Frank and I are doing exceptionally well. We laugh a lot, every day, in spite of our sometimes overwhelming schedules and stressful jobs. Frank inspires me to work hard and keep going… and I inspire Frank to clean. It’s a beautiful relationship. Actually, I was telling Jamie the other night that I am fairly impressed with Frank’s cleanliness. (although, if you saw the state of our apartment right now, you would NOT be impressed… oy)
I think that we have decided to renew our lease at our current apartment. The deal on the renewal is far better than what we could get anywhere else, so it makes sense to stick it out and avoid moving costs, etc. Plus, who has time to go apartment hunting right now??? We’ve got bigger fish to fry, I tell you.
What’s coming up…
Frank’s birthday is this weekend and we are going to see his all-time favorite cover band, Mike & Joe. Frank Fest 2004 should be lots of fun 🙂
Friday night is Erik P’s birthday, so we are swinging up to their new home to celebrate and part-ay–yay! Can’t wait!
OUtside of that, I plan on sleeping in on Sunday, taking a leisurely stroll to Starbucks and possibly making Frank some of my famous pancakes (hee hee–I just buy a bag of the pancake mix from Cracker Barrel–they’re yum, so who cares that they’re not from scratch? I make sure to include a slice of love in every batch… 😉 )
