1:30 am drive home

K I just had to post about the cutest thing I saw coming home tonight from work. As I was about to turn at a major intersection, I noticed the do not walk hand symbol flashing indicating the light would soon turn red. So, I take a quick look around and find it strange that there are no vehicles coming from the other direction to trigger the motion sensor for the lights to change. Coincidentally, there is a cute little fluffy skunk standing on 3 paws on the corner of the intersection, as if waiting for the light to change so he could safely cross. Totally one of those "you had to be there" moments, but I still thought it was cute...

August Expressions

Well August has been a good month for me. I had the chance to visit with friends I haven't seen in a long time, took a risk and applied for a management position (and lived to talk about it), went for a relaxing camping weekend, and lost some weight :-)

Just came back from Sleeping Giant Provincial Park this afternoon. Just Molly and I. Was quite nice. I decided to try a new area of the park I had never been to before and it was absolutely perfect. It was totally private, on the water, and was just a really nice site. I headed out early Friday evening and returned around 1:00ish this afternoon. Other than getting dehydrated today, it was the perfect way to unwind after my interview.

Well I survived my interview. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting, yet I wish I had performed better :-( Oh well. I took the step....whether anything comes of it or not, I chose to make an effort to do something to better my life.

Actually I did a lot of thinking this weekend on my little getaway, and decided that I am going to make a bigger effort to focus on enriching my life. From taking better care of my health so I can look and feel better, to becoming a better house keeper so I can share my beautiful home with people I care about, to taking more risks in my life to advance aspects of my life that have become stagnant.

Back to work tomorrow - I can so tell I have just had a fairly relaxing vacation because I don't have that knot of dread in my stomach....amazing.... reminds me how I need to be enjoying more me time.........

And back to school next week - can you believe it! Totally snuck up on me.

Off to bed for a rare early night for me - toodles all! :-)

Long Weekend At Last

Well it's a long weekend, which I should be enjoying and having fun, but instead have to stress over a work assignment! I recently applied for a management position in my office that I REALLY REALLY want, but have a very slim chance of getting it. So after I sent in my resume I basically gave up hope. Well on Thursday I got a phone call telling me that I moved on to Stage 2, the written assignment! Totally shocked me, and of course now the carrot is dangled before me again, and here I will go and get my hopes up, even though I know there is still a slim chance of getting it.....but it would still be nice. So now I am all stressed about this assignment which is due TUESDAY at 5!!!!!! So there goes my weekend. And becuz I am stressed about it, of course I can't seem to settle down to actually get started on it - so far today I've lounged in my pool, called friends, worked on my new website, played around on eBay - everything but actually sitting down and working on my assignment (except cleaning - I don't really feel like doing that either.....)

My new website. Well I am finally working on my new business website, but I am still new to the whole HTML thing so it is going a little slow. I was so proud of the one page I created that has a form that you can fill out to submit coments to....except when you click submit, nothing happens....sigh..... HTML is so complicated! Even though it's totally under construction and not live yet, if you want to check it out so far, the website is: http://www.teal-bubbles-italian-charms-etc.com Next I still have to figure out how to incorporate the PayPal shopping cart system into it and then link the items to the shopping cart - thank goodness no school right now!

A few more hours before bedtime so time to see how else I can kill time before attempting this assignment!
