I am a little sun-kissed, a few pounds heavier, and a lot overwhelmed at work. Why, January, you must have just returned from vacation! Indeed, I did. My parents still invite Husband and me to our family beach vacation at no cost(!) and it remains the highlight of our year. As in, Husband starts bringing it up in January, and we're still reminiscing about it in December.
I had my pre-op appointment on Wednesday. The only thing that really surprised me was just how involved it was: urine sample, pap smear, and a blood draw of 4 vials! I signed the paper that said I acknowledged the risks and was opting for the surgery. The big day is August 21st. Here we go!
Husband and I get pretty obsessed with the Olympics. If we could take the whole two weeks off of work to just watch Olympic play, I know we would. I do get annoyed with the "primetime" broadcast, because I cannot stay up until midnight for more than one or two nights in a row. Last night, I told Husband I was going to fall asleep on the loveseat, and he was to wake me up and put me to bed after it was over, and tell me who won what. Sounds like Team USA had a great day yesterday!
As I write this, I'm watching a recording online of the women's judo competition from yesterday. I've never seen judo before, and I cannot figure out this scoring. That hand to hand combat looks, well, exhausting. Those ladies are hardcore! I love it.
Husband and I watched the cycling with much interest over the weekend. Earlier this summer, we talked about getting bikes, so I've started trying to save a little bit for that.
It will probably be some time before we get bikes, though, because we have made a renewed effort to pay down our credit card debt. We get it under control, and then we lose control again. This time, right when we made that decision, an angel of mercy in the form of an unexpected check arrived to speed us on our way in these efforts. Thank you, God!
Finally, I'm going to Chicago next week for work. I hope it's a productive trip! As I mentioned before, things are rather overwhelming at work, but my new supervisor is the first person who is confident not only in me, but also in himself. He's also advocating for me with the big scary president, who really likes him. Yesss! He's coming into the office next week before I leave for Chicago, so we're going to spend some time working on my acquisitions plan. I'm a little nervous, but mostly excited. If I am going to stay in this job, and frankly this career, I am grateful that I'm getting to learn from my new supervisor.
