Ahoy Mateys

I am alive..... I have not drowned..... yet.....

Here's the thing, I have been lazy, eh hem hem, I mean busy. With my new schedule at work I am no longer working on my own. This means I am watching someone else or working with them. I am sure they do not appreciate not being able to check their gossip websites while I am around just as much as I hate not being able to check my blogs. It is all for a good cause though. I have been chosen to learn about all the parts of my division at work. It is really interesting and I am enjoying it lots. And it should do good things for my career. And it is only until the middle of May. Then I go back to my old job and can work by myself and get lots of stuff done, like reading and keeping up with blogs. Sure I know I could blog from home or on weekends, but honestly I have been too lazy. I have not had things to say lately. And when I do find time to even read blogs at home, somehow I never get around to writing on my own. I am a slacker, and I know it.

So, I suppose I just wanted to say Hello and let you all know I am okay. Fortunately everything is going really well for me right now and it is not something bad causing me not to blog. I will probably not be blogging much for the next few months. I can say I will try to blog more from home but I am not making any promises.

On a good note I did visit a Mall here in Houston for the first time last weekend. I finally went to the Galleria. You know that 3 story mall with all the designer stores and an ice skating rink in it? Yeah that one. I have to say it is not somewhere I would normally shop and all I bought there was candy and a new watch. But it was pretty neat and I can see why it is a tourist attraction. I still prefer the Woodlands Mall closer to my house, but the Galleria is interesting.

Umm and I planted some bulbs on my back porch. I cannot wait for them to grow. They are lovely white Christmas caladiums, you know those white and green elephant ears. Hopefully they sprout soon. Also I will be planting some really gorgeous purple and yellow calla lillies at the house in Louisiana. Go LSU! I hope the Penguin can remember to water them often enough...

So things are good and hope you all are doing well too!

Little Update

I know I have been a slacker about posting but a lot has been happening lately.

I have been busy at home with family and friends. I went out to dinner with some of my girlfriends Saturday night and I enjoyed the heck out of it. I went all by myself and we had such a good time, I realized I need to do things like that more often.

We are going to remodel our master bathroom at home. I just wanted to do the walls but it seems to have taken on a life of its own. I will be busy with the remodel for a few weeks. I will post more about it later.

At work I was chosen to work on a special project which will be great. It will change my schedule and some travel will be involved but I am looking forward to it. It will be a busy few months coming up.

And one more awesome thing to add to the mix, one of my best friends, Ginger, is having her baby! She just called and said that they are going to induce her today. This is her first baby, and I hope everything goes smoothly.

So life is crazy right now, but I couldn't be happier!
