Hello Again

So, it's been a while since I blogged. I can give you a laundry list of reasons why I haven't, but in the end it all comes back to I just didn't have/make the time. There's been a lot going on with me so I won't try to fit it all into one post. First, I have not completed my re-organization project! Again, many (valid) excuses, but no time to get it done. I was able to manage going thru all of our closets and boxing up items that we haven't worn in a year. Needless to say, my clothes took up the majority of the boxes. I'm not sure where I'm gonna donate them, so I'm open for suggestions on that one. Now if I could just get the clothes that I decided to keep in some sort of order......priorities, priorities.

My big project at work (annual Open Enrollment) went off without any major glitches *saying one more prayer of thanks for dat one!). I know that some people were looking for me to fail, but sadly they GETS NUTTIN'! As always, situations arose that required on-the-spot resolution and I was up to the task :-)! It was enlightening to see this process from a perspective other than a typical employee or from an Associate role. I did A LOT of networking and *hopefully* made some beneficial contacts. You never know when you'll need those.

On the creative side, I finished the baby boy gift album for my friend. She still hasn't had the baby...poor thing! She really appreciated the hard work I put into it, she's a scrappin' sistah also. I'll have to edit and post the slideshow of the completed album later.

I've also taken on a few event coordinating jobs on the side! It started out as one wedding. Then it grew to two weddings, then I added two baby showers! In the end, I dropped one of the weddings because the bride was not showing very much interest for someone whose wedding was 3 months away! I'm done with one of the showers. The mom-to-be had a blast and her co-workers loved it. I'll post updates about all of the events at a later time.

So that's pretty much all I have going on right now. What's going on in your world?
