Moving on .

I've been blogging for a few years now. Sometimes sporadically sometimes daily, but almost regularly. I have finally separated from XSU and starting to live a new life on my own. The original blog helped me get through the painful process of the end of the marriage, along with some bumpy roads dealing with a critically ill child in the midst of the end of marriage mess. Now this blog will see me through the new paths and adventures that life has to offer. Restructuring my life. My way. My experiences, ventings, musings on that whole big and not so big deal.

Full day - gotta run

Took the day off work today because I have a million things to do and not enough time to do it all. Yet there is always time to blog somehow.

Had a nice day at work yesterday.  The boss took his entire team out for breakfast and brought along our big cheez boss and her admin assistant.  First time I've ever had a manager do this.  And given that they receive performance bonuses - just to show up  it seems to most of us - it was a nice gesture.   I think this guy wants to be liked.  WhatEv.  One of my team asked me if we should do something for him.  I am not a fan of buying gifts for the boss - myself included and I told her - no we don't need to do anything for him except our jobs.  NO need to spend money on a guy who makes $15K more than me AND an annual pretty much guaranteed bonus.  Love the way government functions.  I also told her I do not want or need my employees buying me anything either. Same reasons minus the bonus.  

But I digress.  Today's to dos includes:

``Mail the frozen perogies to the nephew college student to fortify himself through exams.  
``Mail the other care package to the other friend - it might show up before Christmas.
``Finish the course design on the marketing course. 
``Get the Christmas cards into envelopes and out the door.  
``Attend the first in five orientation sessions for new teachers at the college where Ill be teaching in January.

``Attend the Christmas Staff Board lunch at the Gymnastics Centre.  

Full day gotta run
