GRADUATION!! (Grad School)

Monday, October 29

Because I don't want to be working right now...

you are lightskyblue

Your dominant hues are cyan and blue. You like people and enjoy making friends. You're conservative and like to make sure things make sense before you step into them, especially in relationships. You are curious but respected for your opinions by people who you sometimes wouldn't even suspect.

Your saturation level is lower than average - You don't stress out over things and don't understand people who do. Finishing projects may sometimes be a challenge, but you schedule time as you see fit and the important things all happen in the end, even if not everyone sees your grand master plan.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

It is Interesting to note....

that while I like to move a lot, I do not like uninvited change. I know I was antsy and raring to go somewhere, but now reality has set in. My landlord sold the house we have been living in. This is great and what we all hoped for him. But I have liked my life this last year. I love my house. I am going to have to move out of it now and that saddens me just a bit. I knew it was coming, but the actuality is still a source of an odd sort of melancholy. Well, as with every other change that has come my way uninvited, I will get over it.

Not what I was expecting....

I had to blog because I thought this was funny, though my roommates think I am a little crazy.

Last night when I got home I was surprised to find an extra envelope from Blockbuster. As I was expecting he Rogers and Hammerstein’s version of State Fair, I figured they had sent me the same movie twice. Not even close. While, I did receive a copy of State Fair the second envelope contained a move about a black woman trying to rescue her brother from the mob. The description included the sentence “Predictably, she must pose as a prostitute, as well as engaging in…”. I’ll let you ponder over what the rest of the description said. Lol! Something tells me that if I were to watch it I wouldn’t find a girl in a gingham dress singing "It Might as W ell Be Spring”. Lol! The most hilarious thing is the picture in my mind of one of my roommates opening it and watching it, expecting State Fair. Lol! It makes me laugh until I cry. Seriously, that's just funny,

Now I have to get to work. Hope y’all have a great Wednesday!

Today I am going to write....

9:35 am
I know; I have been a horrible blogger as of late. Things are just so crazy busy. But I am going to take the time this morning and write. I can take a few minutes....

10:54 am
The thought was there. I was going to write. Instead there have been 2 phone calls, 3 employees in my office, a bunch of emails, 1 mistake on my part that has to be corrected, and the planning of a visit to my boss for lunch. So here it is an hour later and….

3:18 pm
Well I have kept this document open all day in hope of actually writing a blog. But I just haven’t really had the time. I keep telling myself to take the time. But I there hasn’t been time to take. On a good note, I had lunch with my boss. She is still in the hospital on bed rest, and bored out of her mind. Today she got her lap top, she is kind of excited. Lol! Hopefully that can stave off some of the boredom……

4:45 pm
Lol! Life here never changes; there is always another thing to add to my list of things to do. For the first time in my “career” I am actually using my Outlook calendar for more then other people’s appointments. Now I have to keep track of things somewhere. When I need to discuss this and when I have to speak to so and so, there is a never ending list of things to do....

6:30 pm
So I am finally done for the day. There is more that I could do, but I figure today has been long enough. If I leave now, with the metro ride I will be home by 8pm. I think maybe I will watch some tv….or maybe I will just read. Or maybe I will just give up and sleep. I should read some of my emails. I started collecting them during the week and reading emails on the weekend. Unless it is from a roommate on housing I usually don't even open it. Even my emails from my family are on hold. Lol! Some day I am going to be able to breathe again. Unfortunately I think that will be in February.

As a side note: The roommates went to go see another house tonight. Hopefully it was a good one. I would really like to lock down a new place before I have to move out. Lol!

Too Tired to come up with a real title.....

So people have commented on my lack of posting this last week. Sorry about that. Life has gotten quite busy. My boss went into pre-term labor last week and is now on bed rest for the next month. She can’t even leave the hospital. So I got real busy real fast. Lol! Tonight I didn’t get home until about 8:45 pm, though most nights I am home around 8. It has been dark when I left the office. Lol! And it looks like it will continue to be this busy for the foreseeable future. I am not really complaining; I like the challenge. I love to be busy and to end my day feeling like I have accomplished something. Although, after a week the only thought I have is that I am tired….I am really tired. So I skipped the movie tonight, passed on the offer of bowling and came straight home. I spent the last hour going over emails and now I am going to read for the next little bit and then crash. Maybe I will get lucky and it will quash this headache that has taken up residence behind my eyes for the last two days.

That is my life in a nutshell these days. Other then surfing Craigslist to find a new house, I am at work or asleep. Lol! To boring to even write about.

"That's all I have to say about that...."

Today was the Saturday session of General Conference. There were many things said that touched my heart, most of it to personal to write here So...instead I'll share the poem Pres. Thomas S. Monson quoted.

Crossing The Bar
by Alfred Lord Tennyson

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.
