I'm not sure that is what I wanted to say.  It just happened, so I thought I would make the statement.

It seems as though I've abandoned this diary.  I haven't.  I've been here lurking.  Oh no...lurking.  I'm not sure why I haven't written.  I am busy, but no more or less than anyone else here who takes time out to write.  I didn't even look to see when the last time I updated was, or even what I wrote.  Oh well.  I'll just move on from here. 

Most recently BB and I moved to Auburn.  The roommate situation in Portland took a wrong turn and blew up in our faces.  That is over, so I will not dwell.  The place in Auburn is huge and isn't that expensive so far.  Hopefully it stays that way.

We have two lovely cats now.  One is a yearling named Cooper.   Named for Alice.  He is such a gentle giant.  We adopted a kitten last week which we are calling Marla after a character on Fight Club.  At this moment they are both sleeping.  It shouldn't surprise me since they have been chasing each other and anything that moves in this place.  Marla is curled up in a ball on the chair beside me and Cooper is on the floor by the window.  I have to say I was insecure about getting a second cat.  I have never had more than one cat at a time, so I wasn't sure how they would react to each other.  So far, it has been amazing.  They get along really well.  Like a brother and sister.  He has started pinning her down with one paw when she walks by him and then preening her.  It is the cutest thing!  I love being a kitty mama!

I had worked at a place that I don't even wan to talk about.  It was worse than my worse days at the wireless store.  I have finally settled into a job that I absolutely love!  I couldn't be happier!  I'm writing insurance policies.  I don't have to go out and solicit people.  I don't have to SELL!  That felt really good to type, let me do this again...  I don't have to SELL!  Oh, my god!  I'm so happy about this.  I love the people I work with.  I don't have to deal with people who haven't grown out of their high school persona.  It is wonderful to be among the world of adults who still have a good time!

It was a pleasure to be home with family and friends during the Thanksgiving weekend.  (The other bonus of the job, I had a four day weekend!  I've never had black Friday off before.)  I got to spend the day with my family and some friends.  The only downside is I got really sick the day after.  It was nice to know I was able to sleep and heal.  I feel better now.  BB and his mother joined us for Thanksgiving dinner.  It was really nice to include both of them.  I really love his mom! 

There is more to update, I'm sure, but I'll save that for another time.

I love the people I work with by duxup (2.00 / 0) #1 Sat Dec 06, 2008 at 05:53:02 AM EST
That is the big one there.  Within reason it doesn't matter the pay or the hours or benefits but if you hate the people you work with or are treated like garbage it just not worth it.

My last interview, the day I was hired, was to see if I got along with the other two women I would be working with most of all!  I liked them both.  I still do!

* Happy stuff
* Moderately not happy stuff that you've decided to be happy about
* Happier stuff.

You're only missing pictures of puppies here for VS2FP.
