And Life Goes On...

It's been more than a few weeks since my last post and my apologies for lagging.  I had been sick with a respiratory infection - which doesn't happen often - and life seemed to move by just as quickly despite this.

Work has been busier than I would like.  As environmentally friendly as I like to think I am, it is RUINING my work life.  LEED certification in San Francisco is the new big thing and everyone wants to be a part of the vinyl emblem stuck to a building's exterior.  If you ask me, it's a waste of my time tracking and compiling data to support our insistence that we are "greeeeen."  Why can't we just BE green without having to flash our Prius pride on every freakin' corner.  I bet the amount of paper I blow through to PROVE our projects are environmentally friendly defeat the actual purpose.


My Baby Girl is one of the toughest kids I know - just ask her brother.  Late last week, she sliced her toe open on a piece of tile stuck in the side of a shoe which resulted in an emergency room visit and some Dermabond action.  The ER was even more awesome than the last time I was there a few years ago for my son.  Some poor woman sat in the waiting room for 3 hours (!!) crying and my baby pointing and loudly asking "Why is she crying?!"  Thank goodness for nice nurses!  At the end of all that we were instructed to keep her off her feet for 3-4 days.  Shat two year old wouldn't want to do THIS I ask you?  Needless to say, we were back in the Dr.'s office just a day later trying to put it all back together again...


There is not a lot that has changed here with me.  I wish I could say that there is...but I am still here...plugging away at my grand plan to escape this place.  I like to think I'm getting less bitter about this whole working thing, but why start lying to you now?  I think I have half the money for our home addition saved - and by half, I mean half of what I think it'll cost not what the architect thinks it will cost.  We've scaled back what we want to what we need so when I do get out of here - and I will - our home will hold all of us.  If we don't do this before I quit someday, we'll never fit into our modest house....yes, mother, I know families of 20 manage to live in a straw hut with no running water and a can for a toilet and manage to be content.  If you want me to admit I'm a whiner and I'm shallow, then I guess I am.  Hey - you raised me!  ;-)

 
On that note - have a good week everyone!  The storms are supposed to ease up for at least a few days...
