I am posting from my kindle.so.please excuse weird spelling errors..
There have been lots of changes...
I don't like to post a lot about my job here..
I have changed positions at work..still in sales but a different kind of sales...
I will be working primarily with partners who are selling our program.
I think it is going to expand my skill set and hopefully set me up for something new and different soon.
Mostly..its a change....I have been in a funk as of late and this is going to help..
Sometimes any kind of change is good because it engages your mind in a different way..
that is how I am feeling about this change...
I am developing processes for myself and challenging the way things have always been done to make it more productive and to grow the business..
it is meaning more hours at the moment..I am hoping that evens out s bit (as is hubby) ..
But for now..the challenge makes me happy..
Which in the long run is what is important..
it has started snowing here...the weatherman says 8 to 14 inches of snow..
I hope you are all well..big hugs to you all and wishes to each of for sweet dreams and happy thoughts

Snow is coming

Snow is coming
Snow is coming
Yell it from the rooftops.
I think people have forgotten that we live in New England...Northern New England at that.
We have not had a lot of snow this winter, but the panic that is prevalent in every part of the news tonight is insane.
I am prepared.
Hotel is booked
Bag is packed
I will be five minutes from work and not needing to drive with all of the other people on the roads.
Honestly, by this time of the winter we are usually used to driving, used to plowing and this winter we have been spoiled.
I am hoping that the silver lining of this snow will be that it will finally get cold enough to kill the germs that are running rampant everywhere and maybe, just maybe people can get over the ick and be healthy again.
I don't love the snow by any stretch of the imagination- but living where I do, I take a deep breath, prepare the best I can and enjoy the winter wonderland that this place becomes.
On the back of the shooting stars tonight are good wishes to you all.
hugs and lots of love!

I hear you...

Around the blogosphere I went today and saw lots of posts on the new word verification.
It got me thinking...
Wondering even if I had it turned on.
Well I did..
Yes, past tense....I just turned it off.
I did turn off anonymous commenting...mostly because I don't think anyone anonymous has ever replied to one of my posts but why tempt fate right?
Things are crazy and insanely busy..
but challenging in a good way..
Transition is almost complete and it will be good..
or better...
I hope you are all well and I am trying to get back on a regular posting schedule...but when I get home at 7 or 7:30 and still need to eat dinner it's tough..
Know that all is well in my world..
and I have been reading...for some reason my work computer makes it hard to comment..
I am sending hugs, peace and lots of smiles to all of you!!

Thursday's List

Lots of stuff going on...and lots to smile about
My nephews and sister in law and brother in law were here last weekend.
The house was full of all of the noise of a seven year old and a five year old and air guns...
It was fun to listen to them laugh and giggle..
My sister in law and I did a Twilight Marathon...which was fun.
Changes are happening at work...
They are a little insane right now but still good...
Lots of processes to make my own.
Yesterday was national margarita day.
Hubby and I celebrated..
It was yummy...and lots of fun..
Any excuse for mexican food right??
I hope that you are all doing well....I have been absent from my computer at night because I am spending a ton of time on it at work...lots of hours right now...but it's all good...and it's different which helps immensely with the funk.
I am sending you all love and peace tonight and always...hugs!

Feels like the end of the universe sometimes..

Ever have that feeling that you are on another planet
That those you love are hundreds of miles away..
Never close enough to be there when they need you
Always wishing for a quick cup of coffee...
Bite to eat...
Or late night chat
Having to settle for a phone call
Comforting words over the phone
Instead of the hugs you wish you could give...
A couple of hours by plane...
but too expensive to jump on a plane tomorrow
I wish that teleporting had been invented..
Even the ice cream isn't helping tonight...
because I so desperately want to be there
Want to jump on a plane and give you a hug
Reassure you that you aren't doing this by yourself...
But for now..I will be here when you call
Laugh with you
Cry with you
Remind you that I love you...
I know you tell me that it's enough...
but I don't believe you...
If I may...thoughts and prayers for my best friend and her parents...her grandmother is not doing well...she is in a coma and they expect she will pass tonight.

i know that I have been absent from here lately....Things are just crazy right now...
Hugs and love to all of you...

Change is on the horizon..
Just hanging on for a few more weeks..
not major change but enough change that it will make a significant difference.
It will be good I think..
I am typing this in the dark as I am trying to get rid of a migraine..
it's not working..
Hugs and love to all of you!!

Nice Quiet Weekend

It has been a nice quiet weekend at home..
Hubby's best friend came down with his new puppy for a Harry Potter Marathon that we have been talking about for awhile...
Snuggled up with me on the couch during the fifth movie...

As of about ten minutes ago we have finished watching all eight of the movies in succession with a brief interlude for sleep last night...
Great way to just chill for the weekend....with little to no demands on time..a few takeout orders and a quick trip to the store were all that was required :)
Hubby is gearing up to watch football....
As you all know, the New England Patriots are the team of choice up here in Maine...
So everyone is excited about the game..
Except for me...
I will find a good book and go draw a long hot bath I think.
Hope this finds all of you enjoying your Sunday evening..
hugs and love to you all....

I'm back...

And I have missed you...
This short jaunt to Beantown was good.
I have learned a few things about myself and others....
I learned that I really don't like to watch basketball...
The Celtics vs the Raptors may not have been the best game to go see for my first one..
honestly at some points I felt like my head was going to explode...
not my thing...but...I can now say that I have seen the big four professional sports live. Check it off the bucket list.
i am not afraid to share my opinion on things (imagine that)
Sometimes (okay most of the time) if you ask me my opinion you had better be ready to hear it...because it doesn't always coincide with what you want me to say...and I can't change that
We saw an AMAZING speaker...I don't say that lightly...we have had some good speakers and some not so good speakers through out my career at conferences and meetings.
This man was absolutely astonishing..
He is an artist and a motivational speaker
He makes beautiful paintings to music in less than five minutes...right in front of you..
All about opening the creative side of your brain and using that instead of the analytic side all the time..
Erik Wahl is his name....made me think...
And yes, I rocked my dress...
Unfortunately, my camera died so I wasn't able to take pictures...
I have one that was taken with a cell phone camera...not the best..but I did tell you I would post one
It was a fun night...
Some interesting conversations and lots of fun....
The band was fantastic...
Got back to the office today around 11:30 and worked for the rest of the day...
Now I am at home in  my pj's
Laundry is in
Dishes are done and I am waiting for hubby to get home...
I hope you have a fabulous weekend...
I am just laying low...I am not as young as I used to be and two nights of 2am in combination with alcohol...It's gonna take me all weekend to recover :)
Hugs, love and tons of smiles this weekend!!

And I'm off

Leaving for Boston this afternoon...
Heading to work soon..
Wondering if I forgot anything...
It's the worst feeling in the world to remember you forgot something half way there...
But we are only there for two days...so no biggie...
Going to the Celtics game tonight...
Tomorrow night is dress up night
And a bunch of meetings in between.
I hope that you all have a great rest of the week....
Hugs and lots of love to you all...I'll be sending positive wishes from Beantown!!
