First Day

I am the new kid. It is a 'small' company (to me). There are only 22 people in the office. I have a cube. Everyone does their own thing. It's very laid back. We get free cokes and parking is free!My commute is about 40 minutes. We have an office outing to play Whirlyball this week --- which I am really excited about. I really like my new job, but...I really miss my friends.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow! :)

Time for bed.

Say a little prayer for me.....

because tomorrow I start my new J-O-B!

Eeeeeekkkk! I'm so excited I don't think I will sleep a wink tonight.

Before and After

I could have sworn that I had taken before pictures...but I can't find them. So this will just have to do. The before furniture has been moved to our 'office' but since the 'office' was housing rubbermaid bins I decided to fill it with some furniture. Here is what we had in our living room before:

And here is what our living room looks like now:

Eventually we want to have bookshelves built in and a flat screen tv over the fireplace...but that will all come in time. So far we have really enjoyed our new furniture. :)

Dear Dad,

I find myself wondering
Did I give you your due
For all that you've done for me
Did I ever thank you?

For all of my childhood memories
For helping me deal with life's stresses
For helping me accept my defeats
And celebrate my successes?

Or for teaching me the value of hard work,
Good judgement, courage, and being true
The laughter, smiles, and quiet times we've shared
Did I ever thank you?

If I have forgotten,
I'm thanking you now
You taught me right from wrong

I hope you know how much you're loved and appreciated
I hope you, instinctively, knew it all along.

Happy Birthday, Dad. I love you!

I'd be willing to bet that I only have 1 person left who reads this blog...

I haven't updated my blog in a while, but...I'll go into the details sometime this week. I promise. I have lots of things to catch up posting those before and after pictures of our living room, anniversary trip, bachelorette party, and maybe a job update. ;)

Stay tuned lonely blog reader....
