today the school science project came home for keeps. I am now the proud grandparent of 2 fiddler crabs and some? millipeeds (the frogs died). So far the cat has knocked over the crab habitat twice and we have to go looking for them... I think this will be a long Christmas break.

I write this as I haven't written for a long time, although I have lurked some. I post because today I am sad and tired.
We are moving into our new home, and my previous landlord says I owe them money for a pet we didn't have.
I think my tenants at the house I am renting in GA (b/c the market is too bad to sell it) just moved out without notice, and I am worried what condition the house is in.
The puppy we have (gotten when we moved in the new house and never went to the old house) is eating everything, so I had to spend $50 replacing parts on the vacuum cleaner - maybe not much to some, maybe too much for others, but a pia for me and makes life very tight.
And I have a friend who feels I am growing distant, and I don't know what to do as I live over a 1000 miles away. I wonder if my other friends feel the same - I am not the most communicative of the bunch. Current Mood: sad

Today is the first day of formal schooling for my son. He is very excited. We are sending him to a private school as we want to be sure he has the best that is available schooling wise around here. I think he is a bit nervous as I just got done putting him back to bed -
It is amazing to find out what I miss when I don't check live journal for months. At this point I tend to read it only when I can't sleep in the middle of the night, as that is the only time I have available for peace and quiet. I catch up on my reading while putting my son to bed - he doesn't like to go to sleep by himself, so I sit in his chair and read, while he goes to sleep.
It has been a hectic year so far - to those of you who don't know - I am changing careers. I am getting out of consulting and the high travel that goes with it (still haven't left completely) and becoming a small business owner. I am a life coach working on getting my certification. If you don't know what one is - it is someone who helps you reach your goals and dreams by providing focus and direction. ssmouse
and I also are the proud owners of Random Tasks, Inc. - a small business IT solutions company. It is hectic starting two new businesses - I seem to spend more time in networking meetings, than I do at my business some weeks, but it is paying off (literally!).
Well some quick messages....
please let me know what I can do to help!
I hope everything went well! Current Mood: awake

Well today is my birthday...
Outside of people who were with me who I mention that today is my birthday only my son and husband and one person from where I work remembered to call me impromptu. Granted some people I told them before they got a chance to say Happy Birthday to me first.... but as I sit here waiting for my son to go to sleep, I am surprised not more people said hi.
So why am I posting this? I guess as a way to feel that my birthday has meaning - I can barely remember my age (I usually figure it up by doing the math) and because I am sad, and want pity. Those of you who know me, know that I usually try to do something big for my birthday. Although it seems to be getting smaller each year, as less and less people have time to socialize. Several of my group seem to not get along with several others of my group. And lots seem to be having more responsibilities related to elder parents and small children - so I fall down on the priorities. Natural I suppose, but doesn't make it seem any better - as I am used to the center of attention.
In a way it is probably my own fault - I have a hard time getting a chance to wish others Happy Birthday when theirs role around, I tend not to remember what day theirs are, but usually can get near to the right week. Good intentions does not equal good results...
You may reply or not, based on your preference. I am just here for the 6th anniversary of being 29.
So just you know it is me... ( here is a quizCollapse ) Current Mood: disappointed

I have been unavailable to access LJ for the last few months, partly because my personal computer is at work, and I don't bring home my work computer unless I have to. (Long story which I will only go into if asked.)
Anyhow, I am sitting here at work, with my personal PC correcting a GL and waiting for it to finish purging accounts. I can't do regular work because my work computer is at another location having software loaded on it, and I have to wait for that to be done. My boss has loaned me her computer for which I am using to keep up on my email, but otherwise their is not much I can do. Which is a shame becuase I have a lot of work stuff to do.
It is rare that I get to actually talk on this and think quietly to myself. Right now I am the only one in my office.
So to catch up on some personal items...
1. I am planning on running Peachtree Road Race. I have started training and hope to do well. Does anyone know when you can usually start submitting entries for numbers? I haven't ran the race for more years than I care to mention (and yes I have run it before, and even got my picture in the paper).
2. Orion turns 2 next Monday. He is so cute.....
3. I am trying to lose weight (hence the exercise program). For those of you who knew me in my younger, single days - I was smaller. Never tiny mind you, but smaller. I want to get back to that because I don't want to spend money on new clothes. My goal is to lose 50 pounds this year (in a perfect world before summer, but that may be overdoing it for health reasons.
4. I have a wonderful husband.
5. We actually have the first floor of our house unpacked. Almost all of the second floor unpacked. We are working on the third floor, and my husbands office. Eventually the car will fit in the garage.
So, I hope everyone is doing well. Will post as time allows.

So I have attempted to some extent to catch up on posts, and on life. Who knows what the next year will bring. Work has been so hectic... I am at work now, though trying to figure out a way home.
Life is overwhelming, but you make the best of it. Several friends seem to being feeling it too, and I miss not being able to visit with mine, and taking some time for myself.
I hope you all have had a Merry Christmas, Solstice, or Hannahkah. And Have a Happy New Year.
My hope is to have my Christmas Cards mailed out before the new year... we shall see.

Not yet out of boxland, and still can't find the power supplies to either of the hubs (wireless and non-wireless) - so getting kind of frustrated....
But just to prove it is me, here is my quiz....

|so - a long time coming....
sorry for the lapse of my presence. I have been traveling recently and sad to say, didn't have time to spend on LJ. I went to Maine to teach, and when done each day was so tired it was hard enough to get enough time to finish work related stuff.
We move in 2 weeks. Scary to think about as the house is only half packed. Orion is with his grandparents this weekend (hopefully all day today), so I am hopeful, that we will be able to get a big part packed today and
still be able to see a movie. We were going to try to make the movie last night, but spent to much time hanging out at work installing new software.
We lost someone (fired) at my new job 2 fridays ago. it is kinda scary, but is good overall for the company. However, I now get to pick up his job responsibilities. I am feeling a little bit overwhelmed, because as I was completing my full time regular job, which keeps me fairly busy, all the IT support, which is my personal consulting job responsibility - so was averaging about 50 hours a week before that. It will be interesting to see how much time this takes.
As if I didn't have enough to do already. Well - I better get at it, as it isn't going to suddenly pack itself.
Hope you kidlets are having fun. Current Mood: lethargic

My inner child is ten years old!

I'm off on my bicycle (or pony) exploring, lost
in a good book, or giggling with my best
