This has been a busy week. We had our 10th anniversary at work yesterday, which turned out to be very successful. We had somewhere around 50 people show up and the food, decorations, etc. went over well. It was definitely a very different experience than planning a party at my old job. I have to say a much much more pleasant experience. I had no idea bosses actually gave employees credit for their hard work. It was amazing to actually have my boss and the others I work with appreciate my efforts, which is something that didn’t happen at any of my other workplaces…have I mentioned I really like my job these days.
Tomorrow we leave for a weekend in New Concord, Ohio. For those of you who don’t have a clue where that is, it is a small town just outside of Zanesville, Ohio off of I70. We are going to spend the weekend with my parents at a metal detecting competition. I am excited b/c I also get to see some of “metal detecting buddies.” These are guys I have seen every year since I was 6, and despite our groups vast differences in lifestyle, jobs, age, and education we get along great. It is amazing how the group of us, who would probably never talk to each other in “the real world” have created such a bond around a shared hobby. And to top it off they get along with Matt and vice versa. I am very excited about visiting with them this weekend.
I also want to try something new with my blog: a section of 3 or so good things that are going on in my life on the day I am writing. I think I’ll call it Happy Thoughts. I am hoping it will be a step toward more positive thinking that might help pull me out of my current funk. (let’s all cross our fingers).
- I picked 38 delicious looking tomatoes from my garden this morning
- Today is pay day
- I am having a relatively good hair day
