As I read Carrie's most recent post I was somewhat surprised by some of the things she wrote about. I am still fairly new to the blogging world (and don't do it on a regular basis) but my personal take on it is that it's a way for one to express their thoughts, observations, whatever. You should write for you. I was shocked that someone would actually send her a message telling her that her posts were offensive - SO WHAT? If that's the case, don't read them anymore.
My posts are boring for the most part, and I'm okay with that. But for the record, I've always enjoyed reading your blog Carrie and in the glimpses of your posts I see a woman who has a lot of interesting thoughts and insights and is someone I'd like to know more about.
Full power was finally restored to my office building at 10:50am. My manager was hoping to find out if we could go home at 11am. Hence, no going home for me.
Came to work to find out that we have no power. The backup generators allow for auxilary lights and PCs to continue working, but you're sitting in the dark. No power = No Heat. Yet we haven't heard anything about them shutting down the building.
I WANT A SNOW DAY!!!!
Well, by the time the meeting actually took place, lots of speculation was taking place and my fears of layoffs were realized but I'm happy to say that my job is secure. In fact, as a result of the layoffs, I will be extremely busy for months to come.
When a decision is made to have an "emergency meeting" that warrants taking me out of essential classroom training it can't be a good thing...
Turning 39 on Friday made me feel old. Not physically, but in terms of where I thought I'd be in my life. I always had a plan for myself, one that I long had to abandon. I figured that I'd be married by 27, start having kids by 30, and so on. I'm a list maker, and this is one list that I've had to toss out which is hard. 2009 is going to be an amazing year for me, but birthdays remind me of that old list and how I feel like I'm behind on personal goals. It never pays to keep a mental list like this.
It's been my perception that most people are excited about a new year, but for some reason the new year tends to make me a bit depressed. Perhaps it's because it marks the end of the holidays, or it makes me realize that another year has slipped away and I feel like I didn't accomplish things on my various "to-do" lists. Whatever the reason, this year is no different.
Don't get me wrong, I know this is going to be a great year especially since Jeff and I are getting married in 3 months!
Lastly, what would a New Year's blog post be without a few resolutions:
1. GET MARRIED
2. Read more
3. Worry less
4. Lose 10 pounds
5. Escape harm from sharp objects (don't ask)
6. Eat healthier (don't be a "Butterton" LOL!!)
