I just spent a good solid two minutes trying to think of a title for this blog. I am going to just leave it untitled. If it's that hard to find one, maybe it doesn't need one!
Life is moving along at a steady pace. I spent all of last week at a convention in Chattanooga. The convention was good, but getting to spend time with a couple of coworkers that I didn't know well and get to know them was more important to me. I spend a lot of my time at work sequestered in my own little world upstairs. I pile up the projects, requests, and deadlines and get to pretty much separate myself from all the goings-on downstairs. That's good, most of the time, but I also know that I miss out on a lot being up here. Anyway, the point is, getting to know the two women I went with - getting to know their stories and their lives and their frustrations and their celebrations - that was important and very good.
Since the convention I have been super busy. Work is picking up. We're launching some new publications & communications stuff, I have to do the 2007 directory and then just my general job duties and craziness. It's going to be a couple more crazy months, too, I think. I am looking forward to some of the new challenges, and hoping that everything settles into a place that fits soon. I have been struggling with my job satisfaction a little lately - the day in day out same old everything stuff that hasn't really changed for a year - but I think those days are coming to a close. Now it's just going to be trying to balance work, my other jobs, my marriage, and spending time with friends and family. I know we don't have plans to GO anywhere, but I think I'll have to take a couple days off this summer just to rest and relax and recuperate.
Okay, I have tried twice to add more to this, but it keeps disappearing, so i'm done for now!
