March Message

Welp, trying to catch isn't as fun as being caught up, but it's been a busy month with painting and putting in new floor in our front room, Disney's Princesses on Ice, Easter, and on top of that Charlie hasn't been feeling well the last week. Our project will have to wait to be completed just a little longer, but no worries. Here are some pics for you all to see our adventures. Sometimes a picture can say just as as much or more than words can, especially when there isn't a lot of time to write. Have a great day!

So I've graduated from training! Yay! It sure felt good to work a full day's work today. It seems as if forever since I've been able to say I used my full day to work on something worthwhile. I just love being busy, the OCD person that I am. I admit this more so for work than at home like I remember being about both. Guess I'm getting older and just like taking advantage of home/family time when I'm there rather than always worrying if everything is perfect. (Well I still worry, but don't fret if I don't always get it taken care of.)

I worked on a few cases today reviewing people's food stamps and medical benefits. Also had some time to set up my new desk. It is funny to have people think you are a "brand new employee" and forget that you have probably been there longer than they have. I sometimes forget myself too though, since I have to stop and realize it will take me some time to know all the policies and procedures so that it will become old hat. That's the part I do miss - being able to be self sufficient and know my job so well that I don't have to rely on anyone at all. Funny though how the guys I trained with are asking me questions before they do anyone else. Maybe it's just a guy thing, I dunno. I've just been anxious to feel like I'm working hard again for the most part and felt like I accomplished a lot today and feel happy though. :)

We are "remodeling" our front room! Well not really remodeling but more like "renewing" for a much needed purpose. After living here for five years, a baby that threw up a few times, two dogs, and a fat cat that is too lazy to pee where she is supposed to later, we are finally putting laminate flooring in! To top it off we will be painting and getting some new digs. (Yeah, some. I admit I would love to buy some new wall hangings and decorations but oh well, you do what you can with what you can at the time.) I don't know why I thought it would be so expensive that I felt it was necessary to wait this long. I should have really pushed to do this before we got that heavy fish tank that is "un-movable." Hopefully this won't burn out Charlie too much with all the overtime he works as well as all the family time he's been putting in. Let's just say I can tell when he needs a break...but he deserves one even if it seems to me that he "always" has the energy and focus that most people don't due to being overly "hyper-focused" on things. (don't tell him I said that).

I still have things hanging over my head with Michael and my own personal issues with God and some more greiving of my dad as of late, but life is good for the most part. Can't say I can complain. At least I am not hungry, unemployed, or shivering in the cold - God bless....

I hope you all have a great weekend!
