Things I Did When I Wasn't Here

Hey Y'all, check it out! I ACTUALLY came back and posted the "where the heck I've been in the million years since I last posted" post.  Let's get right to it, shall we?

1.  The last time I wrote a post was July 9, 2011.  I was yammering on about the new purple clutch purse I purchased on clearance at Target and was using as a wallet.  I think that post deserves the "Most Spam Comments EVER" award.  I still use the wallet.

2.  I left my job at the living history museum.  To put it as delicately as possible, I did not feel that I could tolerate the way they treated their staff, and after 2 years I decided I wasn't going to put up with their shenanigans.  I wish I could say I left gracefully, but things had gotten so bad that it went more like this: 

There are days where I still miss the place and what I did there, but I had to finally stand up for myself and put my foot down. Since then (I left over a year ago), I have been working at a major university and recently started a new company with several other ex-staff from the museum. We have created our own living history programming and are now able to enjoy the work we do, which is how it should be.

3. I used to post a lot about my Mom's fight against ovarian cancer, and I'm sorry to report that Mom lost that fight on January 24, 2012. The last couple months of her life were a very difficult time involving things no one should have to see their loved one go through. It was physically and emotionally draining, and I don't care to get into detail if you don't mind.

4. There is a new-ish (6 months and still going) man in my life, and surprise of all surprises, last night he agreed to try the FlyLady system with me this time around! Yea, I have a FlyBuddy!

5. I didn't make any New Years resolutions, but I am trying to do this cute little project I found on Pinterest:

It's a cute little jar that you add little memories to throughout the year, and then on New Year's Eve you empty the jar and look at what you'd saved.

I gotta end things here, I need to be leaving for work soon! Laters!

I think I found you after your break (and didn't realize it and subscribed). Anyway, I'm glad you're back. I'm looking forward to your new posts!

Yay! I'm glad to find an ongoing FlyLady blog project (I've been doing this for a little over a month and enjoy reading about other people's experiences). I just found your blog this morning, but welcome back anyway.
