Why hello there. I know y’all probably thought that I had abandoned my blog for good, but rest assured, I haven’t. I have just been busy, and I know I use that excuse all the time, but really, I have been rather busy. So let’s do a little run down of life thus far…
i. I am a car owner! Probably the most exciting and the scariest that has happened in the last month. It is a sports car, which has taken some getting use to since I am use to driving much larger vehicles, but it is a kick to drive! Then there is the whole payment thing, I am such a budget person and I also happen to work for a broke state, so I am REALLY a budget person; and last week the possibility of not getting paid had me a little on edge. Don’t get me wrong, no need to start a collection fund, I still budget to have fun!
ii. Summer arrived. I love summer and fall here in the AV. I love the long nights sitting on the patio drinking wine. That is my thing, it is a great way to unwind and let’s face it, a glass of wine is good for the soul. During the summer I tend to piddle around the backyard all the time, I tweak this or that, get in and out of the pool, water the plants and palm trees. It is just those mindless tasks that keep me from going crazy. At least completely crazy.
iii. My job. Yes, I know I always say I love my job. Even the last two weeks during “the budget”, I have loved my job. Yes, there are those days when I just don’t want to deal with constituents, but you have to suck it up and remember that you were hired to do this job and they trust that you will get it done. When you have those days “in the trenches” a VIP invite comes along to a swanky party and it makes it all worth it.
iv. Dance. This is a passion I am having a very hard time letting go. When I came home from college I jumped right back into dance. Not just taking classes, but I was also getting to teach what I love and that is ballet. The back to back classes two nights a week is draining, but I have done it since January and I am still alive. However, our recital is in just a few weeks and not only are we putting the final touches on the dances, but I am also designing the program. Yep, I guess I can’t give up graphic design either.
I think that is about it for now. I was hoping that I would have Dismarfumblyhertech redesigned by now, but that isn’t going to happen in the next coming weeks. And I am pretty sure my 25 Before 25 is going to have to undergo some amendments in committee here soon. Wow, I obviously have worked in the legislature for a while since I just used the phrase “amendments in committee”. Hope this updates sufficiently appeases my grand total of maybe 10 readers, but you do read it, so I appreciate it.
