I have been away for a little while.
My first thought: "Holy crap! It's June!"
I didn't mean to abandon the blog, but over the last few weeks I've:
• led not one, but TWO new business pitches at work.
• won one of said pitches (woo hoo!). I will now be working on the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer business. I can't tell you how much this means to me. Besides coming from a long line of breast cancer survivors (Hi, Mom!), the fact that I'm going to be working on something that has actual meaning will (hopefully) make my time here a little bit more tolerable. And now, when people walk around here saying things like, "What's the big deal? We're not curing cancer!" I can finally say back to them: "Actually, we ARE." So there.
• told my extended family and friends about our big move. everyone is being very supportive and encouraging.
• had to accept the fact that this face:
is a murderer.
That's right. That chipmunk never stood a chance.
So between mothering a neighborhood killer, working until 3am – sleeping for 2 hours – and then turning around to come back IN to work, and preparing for and hosting a Memorial Day picnic for 45, this chick is exhausted.
But I have a few things up my sleeve.
