Another Sad day for me...The saddest in a while

My "Daddy" passed away today.

My Grandfather whom I can't fathom this life without, passed away today after more than 80 years in this world.

He was the rock of the family, everyone called him Daddy, because he was a father to all of us.

To say I will miss him is one of the biggest understatements of all time.

A quiz...Love them!

I got this from eMMa's blog :)

You scored as Passion. You are very passionate whether that passion is good or evil has yet to be determined. You have great power over others and they seem to flock to your service. You are very competative almost to a fault. Perhaps you should let someone else win for a change?

What do your eyes reveal about you?(PICS!)

So My life as it was is now done

I love vague titles!

My life with my previous job is over, 9 years of ups and downs has come to an end. I get a three day weekend to rest and then navigate to the new place and begin to make my way there.

Am I excited?


I am not even scared anymore. Opportunities come by for a reason, I believe this whole heartedly.

The good news as my mom sees it is that I can now clean the house up a bit. Do some laundry and shopping.

And my happy though is I can sleep late!

Baby Shower

No I am not having one, but I went to a good friend's this weekend. It was a blast!

For me, it was great because there were people there I had not seen for months and in some cases years!

My very Preggie friend is about to have a little girl. And the presents came the cutest outfits! I did the practical route. I got washcloths, receiving blankets, bottles, bottle liners, a travel set, bibs and newborn diapers. Plus a gift card for those little things that we might have missed.

We were asked to put thought, words of wisdom or jokes on an index card. I though this was a great idea. And lots of different types of advice were given.

There were two other babies there because of course I brought J. Who was a hit! Oh my! He got passed around and he smiled and played and was a charmer! There was a boy who was a month younger. He was adorable, but not so much a pass around...A little shy.

The house that the party took place was nice, but the backyard was amazing...Gardens here and there little nooks for sitting, shaded areas sunny areas - a trampoline and pingpong table...The perfect outdoor place for a party!

I had a great time and the food was decadent - just what I needed!

New Beginnings

I got the JOB!!!!!

I am so happy I could shout! A new job that starts on the 18th of July. Amazing, new things to learn and new opportunities to grow. It's funny, it's not the job I applied for, someone else got that over me because they had a bit more experience. I was offered a job that recently became available and was the first name on this list!

Do you know how great it is to feel that people are excited to work with you? I haven't had that feeling in a long time. Now it's going to be a bit of a transition to make but I think I will have the traveling bit down to a science by the start of the school year. And by that time I should have enough Vacation hours accrued to take a half day for my elder son's teacher's meetings.

I firmly believe that this was the right time for me to move and am confident that I can make the most of my new position. Wow I am happy!
