The Catch-Up

I am very sad to report that Beloved caught no fish. Not a single one. And he was gone all stinking day!


Oh well, such is the way these things go. I would like to point out that he could have actually saved money if he'd gone to the grocery store and simply purchase a salmon. Just sayin'.

On Sunday we moved Boy into his very first apartment. While he hasn't lived at home since he was seventeen, he has always lived in a communal atmosphere. This time, he's on his own. It's a little surreal to realize that he has  his own place. Man, am I old.

Girl spent yesterday hiking with that guy. You remember, he's the one that her mother turns into Mrs. Bennet from Pride and Prejudice every time his name in mentioned. He's a nice kid. Good family. Great job. Sadly, after spending the day with him yesterday Girl has decided that they are not on the same path. Sure, he's funny...but apparently there is more to life than funny.

Who knew?

This week marks the end of a journey for me. I decided, after much thought and prayer, to leave the gym I currently work at. I'm moving to another location in hopes of learning managerial and owner responsibilities so that one day, God willing, I'll own my own little Curves gym. I'm so scared and so sad to be leaving where I've worked for the past two plus years. I'm going to miss my peeps and the familiarity of it all.

The fun part of this move though is the new challenges that it will bring. The club I'm moving to was a dying club. They hadn't turned a profit in months, perhaps years. The new owners have shown promise and have made great strides in the last four months. I'm excited to bring my expertise and my enthusiasm to this new group of ladies. There is great potential here and a lot of work!

Of course, I'm worried that I've made a poor decision. All the what if's plague my mind. I'm just trying to remember what my long term goals are and push ahead.

Tomorrow I'll be catching up with a blogger friend from years ago. We became friends through a old blogging site (now defunct) and when I was down her way we met up. She's a sweet lady and I'm glad for the opportunity to catch up with her.

Today, however, is my day off. I've got house cleaning to do and phone calls to make. I suppose I best get to it!

Oh, and today is my 600th post.
