I never made any guarantees

I've completely sucked as a blogger lately. I'm sorry. There are about a million things that I blog about in my head, but as far as actually sitting down to type them... big fail. I'm sorry. Things are fairly good, although there's some drama at work that I didn't expect and I think it's taking it out of me a little. I think it'll work out eventually, but right now it's annoying and frustrating and all that kind of stuff. I think Master and I are mostly good right now. We're still in a sort of "rebuilding" phase right now. We're leaving in a few to go to a late movie.

So, that's life in a small nutshell. And I'm sorry that I suck at blogging lately.

I'm too young for a hearing aid

This just happened...

Master (sitting on the bed): I love you lots.

Suzy (at my puter): What?

Master: I said I love you lots.

Suzy: Ooh!

Master: What did you think I said?

Suzy: laughing... I thought you said, "I love your box."

Master: laughing... Well, I do.

Amber, it's not just you. LOL

One Story

I came here to blog and realized... I really don't have much to say. I'm sorry. My life just isn't that exciting right now!

I will tell this much: Master got to meet one of my uncle's this past Friday (my mom's youngest brother). My uncle was in Calgary on business this week, so Friday we met him about half way, in Red Deer, for dinner. It was a nice time, and Uncle is a pretty talkative guy, so he did the vast majority of the talking. That was fine; we kind of knew it would be that way, and it gave me the chance to catch up on his family and for Master to learn about them. The funniest part of it all was that when we got in the car after dinner, Master said, "You know, if it weren't for the fact that his voice was different, I would've thought your mom had put on a blonde wig and had come up to have dinner with us!" I laughed and said, "Yeah, they do look alike." Master replied, "But it's not just that, it's their mannerisms and everything!" I found that pretty amusing, partly because Mom and Uncle are 16 years apart, so it's not like they lived the same house for very long. I mean, Uncle is only 6 in my parents wedding pictures! I told Master that maybe they picked up a lot of the same mannerisms from their parents. In any case, I was really glad that they got to meet each other since Master hasn't met a lot of my family.

So that's my latest story. Exciting stuff, no?

Bitty Update

I'm watching Kendra. Oh man. It's like a bad accident on the highway - you know you shouldn't look, but you just can't turn away. lol

Things are rollin' along. There have been some bumps here at home, but we're still trying. Work is going well. I'm learning. And learning. And learning. I'm probably going to be learning more for this job than any job in the past. I'm not saying that it's a bad thing, but it's just a lot. That's okay. I'm still really happy with it.

So, that's a tiny little update. Oh, and Master got rear-ended on Monday on his way to work. He was on his motorcycle and some idiot hit him because he wasn't paying attention. It knocked Master off his bike, but other than a couple bruises and scrapes and a little muscle pain, he's okay. Of course, I find this out at work and even though I knew he was okay, I still had to cry because I was freaked out. Gotta love crying at work on your first Monday there!

Sorry I don't have any more. It's just busy and I'm having to get used to going to work every day again. It's life!

Better

So. Things are better. Master and I had a down and dirty, hash it out, big, fat talk on Thursday night. This is it. We're going to give it a real go, trying to leave the past in the past. We've agreed that on nights where I'm working the next day (so Sunday-Thurs) we'll alternate nights with Master sleeping upstairs and me wearing earplugs until the snoring is resolved. We'll sleep normally on weekend nights, so that we can still keep tabs on how the snoring is. Personally, I think it means we're going to have this sleeping arrangement for a significant period of time. However, I made a point of asking Master how long he was willing to do it, because I didn't want it to be a case of us doing this for a week or two and him getting tired of it and scrapping it, and us being back to where we already were. And that spot leaves me feeling NOT taken care of and completely screwed.

Master says he feels like he really gets it now. He's really ready to take control. I sure hope so. I'm not sure I can keep doing this back and forth, this getting my hopes up only to be disappointed, this giving up control only to feel like I'm left floundering. But... so far so good.

Now let me tell you about my new job! My friends... I'm even more excited about it now than I was before I started. For one thing, I have an office. An office! That's never happened before! So I'm quite happy about that. Another thing I'm psyched about is the organization as a whole. It's a non-profit org, and I think there's about 25 or so employees. It's been around for nearly 90 years, I think, and has grown and changed - of course - in that time. The organizational culture is really awesome. I've been told by various people there that their mission and values aren't just things they post on the wall. They really put them into practice. They really value honesty, integrity, courage, etc. As part of my new employee package, I was given a copy of Stephen Covery's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I've been told more than once that if I have a problem with something or someone, I should absolutely bring it up so we can deal with it. It's just all that kind of stuff, which I think is really awesome!!

The job itself is going to be really good, but also fairly challenging, especially as I'm learning and getting started. There's a lot to it and a TON to learn. I actually feel a tad bit overwhelmed right now because of how much I have to learn, and I don't think I've ever felt that about a job before. However, the really good part is that my co-workers fully realize how much there is to learn and how complex some of these things are, so they know it's going to take me a while. In fact, the chick who's doing most of my training - Mari - told me Friday before she left that I'm doing an awesome job, so that makes me feel good. I'll be working a lot with Mari, and she and I are part of a team under Candy. Both of those ladies are super nice and funny and definitely seem to know what they're doing (as in, I don't think they're idiots), so I think they'll be great to work with! Really, everyone in the organization has just been incredibly nice so far, with perhaps one exception, but I think it's more that I think there's a person there that will annoy me, but I don't think we'll be working together a ton, so that's okay. I'll be dealing with some of the accounting people as part of my job, and they are also great.

It's just a really great thing. After my standard probation period, I'll have benefits and a little bit of a flexible work day. The offices we're in now are fairly nice, but we're running out of room, which is what happens when the company grows. They're currently having new offices built, so we'll be moving there in November. And yes, I'll still have an office when we move! (You know I had to ask. lol) So, I'm just really, really pleased about this job. Knowing what I know now, I think it was better for me to take this job than the one I originally thought I'd prefer. (Roxanne - you kinda called that one!) The one slight drawback that I see at this point is that since I'll actually have a lot to do, I'll be too busy to blog and read blogs at work like I've been able to do most of the time in the past. I know, that's not really a drawback, but it does mean that I might be blogging and commenting less, especially at the beginning. You all will forgive me, right?

I think my life is looking up. :)

It's a Rollercoaster

The new job is going really well. It's great. I'm happy and excited about it.

Things at home just suck. Really, really suck. Master and I barely talk. Right now I basically hate my step-kids. I think they're useless, lazy, bitchy brats.

I wish I was happier at home so I could actually enjoy this new job.

I don't have much to say

I start my new job tomorrow. Today is a random civic holiday in Canada, which is why it's tomorrow instead of today. It's like someone at some point in the past decided we all needed another long weekend during the summer. And none of us complain!

Anyway, since I don't have much to say just now, I have a picture for you all instead. Remember how I bought some roses a while back? Well, here's a picture of one of the Morden Sunrise roses!
