You Asked For It

Okay, okay. So I haven’t blogged in a while. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to, I just haven’t had the time these last couple of weeks. So here’s my overview:

Work: Normally I wouldn’t bother posting an “update” about work, but it’s the main reason for the lack of posting these days. We have a new drill sergant part-time co-worker who was hired to support and help us when we are busy with our conferences. When she’s not busy, she’s trouble. Recently she decided in the midst of training, board meetings and workshops, she wants us to rearrange our files. So in the three hours left of each day after training, I’m forced to sit on my dirty floor surrounded by boxes of papers and files, and make some sort of sense and order out of them for filing down in storage. Like I don’t have two associations to manage or something. (And more importantly, when am I going to have time to surf the net if I’m buried in files?)

Relationship update: >sigh< Where can I start? Last week J sent me a dozen beautiful long stem red roses to me at work, just because. I don’t think I’ve ever had anyone send me flowers at work before. I’ve watched women at work for years receive flowers, watched their faces glow and turn flushed and thought, “eh, so you got roses.” I’m not sure its even about the flowers. It almost felt as if J hired one of those airplanes that trail banners behind them, his saying “I’M IN LOVE WITH THIS WOMAN.” Maybe I’m making way too much of this, but that’s how it felt to me.

We just recently had a conversation that has taken me back a bit, made me really think about the seriousness of our relationship. If I have the balls to do it, I may post about it. However, we all know he reads my posts and that may be stepping over a line.

Has anyone been raised believing there are certain levels and steps in relationships? I have, and I think its really created these strong morals and beliefs in me that I am proud of and somewhat hard-headed about, but sometimes I wonder who made these rules that have me feelings so unsteady when breaking them?

Even so, I’ve never been happier. I still feel like that girl that everyone wants to punch in the face. “Want to hang out after work today?” “Nah, I’m going home to J.” “Have you ever done__?” “No, but J has. Have I told you how sweet he is?”

Friend update: My Michelli had her baby shower this weekend! I can’t believe how close she is to being a mommy. I don’t have any pictures myself, but once she has her’s up (and with her permission) I may link her post so everyone can view the ooo’s and ahhh’s of her cute shower. You always think you have a good support group of friends and family, but when you see the turnout of those friends and family for these special events in life, its really amazing. Michelle packed the hostess’s house to the point of busting, and most of the men were kind enough to step outside on the patio with the beer to give us more room. Hmm. Wait…

Well, I better run for the morning. I have training today and tomorrow. Don’t be jealous.

finally...an update. Sorry about work...I feel your pain. Glad to hear you and "j" are still doing well...I like the sound of this guy. he reminds me of someone cool I know (shameless self promotion). Yeah, i doubt any of the men minded getting away to drink beer during a baby shower...I bet if you'd have asked them they would have left the building entirely and stayed away and ate food and drank beer extensively to make you happy. just a guess.

Ahhhh...now I feel better. It's so nice to see you back in the blogging world. Great J update..so happy for ya'll. And look, if it feels right...don't question it so much. I mean, you have followed the rules for all these years and look where it has gotten you in those relationships. So question the rules, not the relationship! Be a rebel! Kisses!

By the way, I have some pics up but blogger is not cooperating to put much more up.

Drill sergant? Good comparison. However, just a part-timer, not the boss! And all the boxes on your floor is just lovely, waiting for you to trip or something then you can blame it on her and claim workman's comp!

Bad coworkers suck, they can really ruin your days at work, I feel you there.

What are the rules anyway? You're not holding out on us now are you? ;)
