And Now I'm Back (From Outer Space)

Thought I'd take a moment to stop by and update the ole blog.  I've been terribly busy since my last post. On top of my new job, I also have a new addition...see below.  I have to carve out time in my day for a shower, so unfortunately it's been difficult finding a chance to be creative and write.

Hopefully I'll be back on my game very soon (but I'm not making any promises).

The Bigger Person Dilemma

Why is it that, during an argument, we try to be the "bigger person?"  As I'm getting older, I really don't undertand that concept.  I've tried it before and you know what??!!!


I will typically try to hold my tongue and end up blowing a gasket about 10 minutes later.  My new philosphy is that I don't want to be the "better person" because that means that I'm ok being a victim.  If I'm called a name...I'll be calling one back.  If I'm prepared to hear more insults from my end.  I'm not always nice and friendly but I'm definitely not the agressor in a fight; so I rarely start one.

Take heed for those that know me: Don't throw punches if you're scared to get hit.

MOOD: Indifferent
DINNER: Spaghetti & meat sauce

Absence Explanation

Let me tell you, it's amazing how your life changes in 1 week...heck, a couple of days! 

Within less than a week, I have been presented with two life-changing adventures, and I'm still reeling.  The first is (drum roll please) I got a new job.  Yep, and I didn't even go after it.  It was just kind of thrust into my lap.  I'll be starting that new endeavor on the 20th.  Can you say: excited, nervous, scared and apprehensive?

Honestly, I haven't really done much cooking.  I've been to busy contemplating life's unpredictable nature to do much of anything.  I'm going to plan a menu today and get back into everything.

P.S.  I'll talk about my other news a little later.  Suffice it to say, it's a surprise that presented itself the day of my interview.
