I’m alive. Generally speaking at least.
I dropped off the face of the Earth for a while there, huh? Sorry. I have been stretched a bit thin lately.
I got a promotion at work and I’m not sure how I feel about it. It’s the primary reason I haven’t had a chance to do something that isn’t work related. If I’m not working in the office, I’m working on my couch with my lap top. If I’m not doing that I’m thinking about work and feeling guilty that I’m not working because there’s so much to do. It’s draining, and depressing, and so far I’m not 100% sold on my life in this new role. We’ll see how it goes because right now, my department is understaffed, so it may just be that I need a team to appreciate my new role in my company. We’ll see in a month or so, I suppose.
Halloween’s coming and I am super excited. It’s my favorite holiday and for work-related reasons I have not been able to enjoy it in the past. But, not this year. I’m going to have fun, to bake cupcakes and carve pumpkins and give out candy. It’s going to be excellent and I am going to have fun.
I haven’t been able to cook food in so long. I miss it so much. I love to cook and I haven’t had the time lately. We’ve been eating a bunch of junk because of it and man I feel all disjointed. Have you ever had that happen? Where you eat like crap for so long you start to feel it? Gross.
I am working on separating my work life from my life. It’s difficult. This is the first role I’ve been in like this. So, I am still learning. Step 1: cook and eat real food. Step 2: happiness. It’s attainable, I’m certain of it!
Hopefully it won’t be another 17 years before I can get back to you. I mean, I do have some Halloween Safety Tips that the world needs to read, so maybe I’ll work on those this evening.
Oh, one more update.
This month, The Boy and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary. It doesn’t feel like it’s been more than a few months since our wedding, so I guess that’s a good thing.
Happy Anniversary, Boy. I love you and don’t want to live without you, even though you elbow me in the face while sleeping like every night. That’s devotion, folks.
