Awesome Monday!

Well hello there! Are you feeling very awesome today? Very excited for the upcoming week? Month? Year?

I know, I know, slow down. Baby steps. So let’s start with doing Amazing Mondays again! I KNOW, RIGHT? I’m all asquee!!!

I need to send out a very special thanks to sharpiesgal for picking up the torch and running with it for so long. YOU ROCK!!!

Moving forward we’re going to bounce it around between a few of us, and hopefully we’ll be getting things in full swing again!

Now, tell me, what wonderful things are you looking forward to in the next week? Are you making all the words? Do you have a day off with big doings planned?

What's up with me this week? In less than a week I hit my 10 year anniversary at work. I’ve had a few jobs in my life and two of them were with companies that I ended up staying with for 11 years. So that’s a bit of a tick in my brain. I’ve never worked anywhere longer than 11 years. Hitting 10 makes it feel like I might be coming up to that 11 year itch. Although, to be honest, I’m not feeling all that itchy. Both of the others I was very itchy at 10. I like my job, I feel like my boss thinks I do a good job, better than others he’s run into. When I asked for help, I was able to hire someone, when I need more help I’m given the go-ahead to give my assistant more hours. I feel valued and appreciated, so I’m kind of excited to be moving into the 11th year without the itch. Now, if only I could find time for words! *headdesk*
