TGIM!! – Thank God It’s Monday

I absolutely love the last Monday of every month. Our company announces a $69 cruise. It’s like the best thing in the world, at least for those who like to cruise or want to cruise.

No you aren’t on a tug boat behind the ship.
No, you aren’t on the lowest deck of the ship.
No, you aren’t at the worst room on the ship.
No, you don’t have to help wash the dishes.
No, there is no presentation you have to sit through when you get on the ship.

I will take a $69 Bahamas cruise over a $400 one every day.

I’ve been gone for a while because I’ve been traveling a lot. Was in DC last weekend and in Houston this past weekend. Will be in Dayton this weekend coming up.

Then add school on to that and work, don’t have much time for anything else in my schedule.

To be honest, I typed this post on my phone during a training session. Shh, don’t tell anyone.

Okay, got to go already, just wanted to share my cruise excitement!!!



13th Birthday

Today was my baby’s 13th birthday. We don’t usually do parties but 13 is an important milestone so I thought it was necessary to have a party. I allowed her to choose her poison. Her choice…skating party. It was her and 8 of her friends and they had a really good time.
I’m so proud of my baby. She’s in all honors classes and she’s a straight A student.
So Happy Birthday my Sweetie Pie!

Life Interruptions

I absolutely hate the fact that life keeps getting in the way of the things I want to do. It’s been so long since I’ve written anything. Does it bother me? YES! I feel like I have so much going on in my life that it doesn’t leave room to do some of the things I like to do.

I’m wondering if I need to just put any major writing on the back burner until I’m able to get rid of other obligations in my life.
With the hospital opening this year, we’re going to be so busy…starting immediately. I have a to-do list that’s so long and will only grow longer. So there goes any extra time during the work day to get things done. After work, I have my part-time, school work and my kids. One bright moment, something that I have to look forward to, is that school will be over in a year (2/5/2014). I’m looking so forward to that. Last year around this time I wasn’t in school and I had a lot more time and I was so happy. Just thinking about it encourages me to keep going for another year because it will soon be over.

I’ve had 4 programming classes in a row. I think that has thrown off my writing also. Before that, I was doing a lot of writing for class. My next class will have a lot of writing.

In the meantime, during my no writing time, I’ve been still getting in some reading. Well, it’s not really reading it’s more like listening. I listen to audiobooks while I’m working. It helps me get through the day at work and helps me stay focused on the tasks at hand. It also allows me to block out everything that’s going on around me so that I don’t get distracted. I’ve been doing this for years and it helps a lot.
Okay, have a lot to do so I need to get back to it.

Hopefully it won’t be another month before I post something again.

I really miss my blogging family!
