Happy Birthday, Alyssa!

First day of spring here in Ohio, and it’s supposed to snow. Ah, Ohio… Oh well, enough change in my life right now as it is. But warmer would be better. 😉

Found a couple library jobs to apply for this week, thanks to the advice from several friends. I know temp and part time is the way to get your foot in the door, but it just is not financially feasible for me right now. So, I aim big.

A good weekend ahead for me. The Detroit ship is throwing their inaugural house party on Saturday. Then, on Sunday, I get to go visit my best friend Erika. Very excited to see her, and her family. It has been too long. And she might even make me eat more healthy things. 😉

March Musings March 31, 2011

It snowed yesterday and been cold all week. March going out like a lion, hopefully means much better weather next week. It’s Ohio, I don’t figure we’re fully out of snow season until May, but still hoping April is good and warm.

Lots of birthdays the first week of April. My Mom, and two good friends in the first four days. Happy Birthday everyone. 🙂

I was chatting with Rich today about work and how much I appreciated him working a job he hates to keep us afloat, and he commented I was doing the same thing, I just wasn’t getting hours. But that’s not true. I do like my job. I like working at the bookstore. What I don’t like is the pressure from Corporate to meet seemingly unreasonable performance goals. I know the market is tough and we have to make a profit, but ever increasing goals can become unreasonable for anyone.

Rich’s getting more interviews lately, so we’re carefully hopeful. I found a possible new place to live come June, 550 more square feet for $150 less a month. Going to check it out soon, see if it’s too good to be true, or if we’re going to apply.

I continue to fight with my body, and my diet. But I’m doing pretty well. A little Naproxen here and there is far better than what I used to do.  Just wish my elbow would behave.

Occasionally pondering starting a web design business and changing HydyPaige.com or registering another domain for a portfolio of what I can do. I really like WordPress and am pondering taking the time to learn it better and learn Joomla. One thing at a time. That might be my next big project. I work better with deadlines.

So, another month down, 9 more to go. 🙂

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow February 11, 2010

Storms and snow and sleet and rain and ice and wind. Welcome to winter in Ohio. I don’t know what the official numbers are, but the path through the snow to our parking lot comes up almost to my knees. Not the several feet of snow the papers were reporting further east, but plenty to make life interesting. Once again pondering the Z, but no more answers than we had before. We’re going up this weekend to wish our nephew a belated 4th birthday, apparently we weren’t the only ones that missed the party last week.

Elbow aside, my health is stable. Work is fairly stable, too. Waiting on the tax return to start shifting money and making a couple purchases. Got my car serviced today, had to replace all my windshield wipers, the ice has not been kind to them. Also got a taillight replaced, I think that was the most expensive part of the operation. But it’s done now, no more worrying about getting pulled over for a burnt out lightbulb.

Have discovered spring rolls. Now if only PF Chang’s didn’t have huge mushrooms in them, it would be perfect.
