Stormy Winter February 21, 2013

Weather’s been crazy this past week. And not just day to day, but mile by mile around the city. Storming one place and a few miles down the road it’s nice and sunny. Makes driving ever so fun. And back to freezing cold, to boot.

Rich started his new job this week, and he loves it. So that’s great. Benefits should kick in next week. I’m still looking, and looking, and studying. Drupal this week. Fun stuff.

The parties this past weekend were all good fun. It was nice to hang out with friends and just relax. We also went to see The Hobbit. Which I enjoyed thoroughly, only falling asleep during the elven/wizard council, but waking up shortly thereafter, when there were storms and rocks and giants. Looking forward to the rest of the movies.

A week and a half until Christmas. The parking lot is crowded. The customers are in a rush, but at least they know what they want. Corporate is sending us more toys and games than books. We’re stocked with HD and HD+, but we still haven’t filled every reservation. And next weekend, they’re buying us City BBQ for lunch. Retail holiday season 11 is not going badly at all. Still, I am ready for a break when it’s over, fortunately, there are conventions the first couple months of the year.

Body is ready for a break, too, exhausted and trying not to get sick again as the weather turns cold once more. Pain hasn’t been too bad, if I remember to take my meds, and if I don’t spend the whole day breaking down boxes (I’m looking at you Toys & Games shipments…).

Rich has had some good interviews, so we’re waiting to hear back from them. Fingers crossed, both are good opportunities, that he would enjoy.

Hope to see The Hobbit soon, maybe this weekend. There better be singing! 😉

I have an amazing life. Complex, crazy, busy, stressful, and yet wonderful, filled with love and opportunity, fun and challenge, friends and family. I am a writer, introverted, anti-social, quiet and more at home in nature than a city. But I have found something incredible here. I have found acceptance and love, growth and exploration, and a life more full than I ever expected to have. My dream house has a furnished attic with pillows and a big circular window, a papasan and some bean bags. Used to be, I’d imagine myself spending most of my time up there, writing in seclusion and quiet. I still want that attic office, but now it’s for my private writing time each day, when I take some time to myself amidst a life full of so much else. I am incredibly thankful for everything and everyone that has made my life what it is today.
