I’ve been a bit quiet lately (okay, really quiet) and it’s only because work has been ridiculously hectic with registration, orientation planning, etc. While I’ve been pretty much nonexistent I have experienced a few triumphs in my life recently.
For one, I got a new JOB! Okay, well to clarify, it is technically the same job I am currently doing, but it is now a full-time, PERMANENT position. Basically, I’m higher up on the totem pole and at university that is a much better place to be in all aspects of the meaning. For one, I now have paid vacation and sick time, as well as an increase in salary (always welcomed). I still had to go through the entire search process and interview….(yes, being interviewed and having to present to your current co-workers is as awkward as it may seem). But, all in all, it’s fabulous and I’m very grateful for the experience.
My next triumph is more of a domestic triumph, but exciting non-the-less. We are currently re-doing our bathroom (trust me it was NEEDED…think of a house that was built in the 1960s with a carpeted bathroom and pink tile). Anyway, the husband and I are pretty much doing the whole process ourselves. Painting, putting up bead board, sanding and re-painting our vanity, etc. It’s extremely tedious and at times tiring, but definitely necessary and will be outstanding when it is finished.
I am sure to be more visible and active on my blog soon enough. I have thoroughly missed the writing and documenting. It’s good to be back.
