On My Mind

The big news is that I didn't quit my job. Well, I did quit, but then I had a long chat with the owner and didn't quit. It's complicated...or maybe it isn't. Maybe it was just a misunderstanding regarding a very strange duck whose made my life uncomfortable. Today, it's all water under the bridge and I learned a little bit more about myself.

I'm a pretty big coward when it comes right down to it. But, you probably already know that. It's not easy being cheesy. I'm just sayin'.

Anyway, since I didn't quit my job and I am a great employee (am too!), I was offered a promotion of sorts. I am honored and just a little bit nervous about it.

Another thought crossing my mind today is the thankful thought that Girl finally made a decision regarding what she'll be doing this summer. The application has been filled out and is on it's way.

We've designed and ordered Girls graduation announcements.

We may have a date for her party.

And speaking of party! Soldier Mommy may arrive home sometime within the next month or so. Or not. It's so hard to tell for sure because we are dealing with the United States Army and while they seem to be pretty free with the media, they are not so quick to offer information regarding troop movement once our troops are actually headed for home.

Am I the only one who thinks that isn't quiet right?

Easter brings the anniversary of the last time I spoke to my mother. It's been three years and I cannot help but wonder if I will always mark this date in my mind.

Lastly the yard is weighing heavily on my mind. The tall grass, the unweeded flowerbeds, the hillside that is once again my tormentor. To plant a garden or not. To put more money into FIL house or not. To remodel the kitchen...

But it all seems just a little silly when you consider Haiti, Healthcare Reform, and Phoebe Prince.

So, what's on your mind today?
