no specific reason

Wow!  I've been away for a long time.  Like the title says, there's no specific reason why I haven't been by to write.

On a totally different topic, I created an electronic signature this morning and this is where it's going to make it's debut.

Here goes...

Have a lovely day!

meanwhile...

Haven't updated in a bit, so I'm going to squeak out a little post before work.  My day job is going well.  The people are great and I'm learning more everyday.  My night/weekend job is going away, because I gave my two weeks notice on Sunday.  Now, if I can just get people to pick up my shifts...

I'm contemplating a different weekend job, but haven't yet applied.  I stopped in yesterday to talk to a manager, but he was busy interviewing someone else.

I suppose that's all I have for now.  Later!

WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Just a short update:

I interviewed Tuesday afternoon for an amazing job.  Wednesday morning, my phone was blowing up--they offered me the job!!!  I felt so damned blessed and my Angel cards have been telling me to get myself a treat, soooooooo I bought a $5 scratcher, using all the cash I had in my wallet.  I thought I'd won $50, but when I turned it in------------$100 winner!

Yay me!!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

werk

I'm officially working two jobs now...and let me say--it blows!!!  My part time job is physically demanding, something my professional body hasn't seen in many years.  That sentence sounds weird, but I'm going to leave it.  My shifts range from four to six hours, but when you spend that much time on your feet on a concrete floor slinging groceries at a busy store, you hurt like you've been hit by a truck by shift's end.  Headed back for more torture tomorrow.  A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do...and I have to work two jobs for a while.  *shrug*

That is all.  I'm going to bed.

I'm not sure yet...

It's Sunday again and I'm already dreading going back to work.  Sound familiar?  "Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life."  Novel concept, but not in play in my life yet.  Today, it's all about laundry, cooking, dishes and cleaning.  Woo-frickin-hoo!

Speaking of cooking, I've found a couple of recipes I'm incorporating into my meal plan this week.  One is a breakfast quinoa skillet and another is a quinoa lunch salad.  Why so much quinoa you ask?  It's a complete protein and when mixed with fruits and veg, it's a complete meal.  I'm sick and tired of cottage cheese or biscuit cookies for breakfast and PB&J for lunch.  I need something more substantial that is good for me.  I'm hoping that these meals stay in the rotation and they help me feel better and shed some weight.  Ideally, I want to eliminate dairy, sugar, all the white stuff and most meat from my meals and start eating cleaner.  I know I'll feel better and I'll have more energy to be more active after work and on the weekends.  Baby steps right now, but I think this is the right path for me.  On another note, I've been having lower leg swelling and stiffness and I'm positive I can contribute that to inflammation which is a direct result of my crappy eating.  I also need to incorporate more intentional movement, AKA exercise, into my daily routine.  Just a few minutes each morning will help me start off my day on a positive note.

Guess I better get my quinoa cooked so I can get this show on the road!

Love, laughter and light to you all!!!
