Checkin' In

Happy Friday! As if everyone who reads this doesn't share my sentiment, I'm happy the weekend has rolled around again. I've had a good week at work. I actually started talking to a few clients on the phone. Woo hoo. It makes me a nervous wreck being new, but it's all part of the learning process. I had a couple of "oh shit" moments, but also some "aww, I actually helped" times. Good times!!!

I don't have anything too noteworthy to say about weekend plans, but it's going to be a warm one. It's still 80 something now at 6:30 and will be the same for a couple of days. I'm not complaining! I'm ready for it.

Since I blogged last, I had a quick visit with family in East TN and had a good time with family. I can't even remember anything exciting about last weekend, so it must have been pretty low key.

I'm looking forward to next week already! My company has an annual 'talent night' event and another night is 'Dining out for Life.' I mentioned this last year on the blog, but it's an event that happens at different times in a lot of cities where you go out to dinner and the restaurant donates a portion of the food money to AIDS related charities. We're going to hit up Germantown Cafe. They're donating 100%!!! That's awesome of them and I happen to really like eating there.

I'll wrap up my rambling and just add, wow, I feel like a lazy P-O-S right now. Hal has been trimming hedges and is now weedeating while I sit here on the porch chilling and drinking a beer. Just watching makes me tired! ha

Hope you all havce a good weekend!

It's a Good Friday!!

Happy Good Friday, y'all!

It's a super-duper happy day for me. Today was the end of my 'trial' period at the new job. I'm officially on board for good. It's definitely been a fun month getting back into the swing of the work routine. I'm loving the new & different culture. It's amazing being away from a more corporate type of environment. Good stuff.

I've been a little busy since I last blogged keeping up with hockey. They dont have any more regular season home games, and it's still up in the air whether the Preds make it to the playoffs, but we'll see. Que sera sera! I'm not as uptight about it this year as I have been over the last few years.

Sadly, there was a deadly tornado in Middle TN today, but Nashville really wasn't affected. I've mentioned before that this type of weather freaks me out. I hate it and hate the devestation it causes.

On a lighter note, I'm looking forward to a good weekend. I think we are going to hang out with some friends tonight. I'm heading to East TN to visit family tomorrow. I've got some relatives in from Michigan, so it's always fun to see them.

I hope you all have a hip-hoppity Easter weekend, too!

Go find some eggs!
