WOW! Has it really been six weeks since I posted last? Time flies when you're losing your mind.
I could write a LONG drawn out entry, but I'll just keep it to the highlights.
As you know, I started dating someone in late February. I really didn't write too much about her, because I honestly didn't know which way things were going to go.
Well, I'm happy to say that things are going very well. This past Thursday, we celebrated three months together. A few weeks earlier, in what was probably a much-too-dramatic way, I told her that I loved her, a feeling which, thankfully, she enthusiastically reciprocated.
I would say that we see each other 4 or 5 nights during the week. We'll watch TV (she managed to get me hooked on American Idol this season), go the library, or just sit on the porch and talk. Of course, we do more than just talk; sometimes we go out to the bar and sing karaoke.
Since the love life is doing so well, of course the work life has to be less than stellar.
I've been at this job for four months, and except for my old employer, I don't have any steady clients. I've been studying manuals and doing training exercises since March, and I'm no closer to being assigned a project that I was back then.
I know I've only been at this job a little while, but I really don't see it being a long-term situation. I'm not doing what I was hired for, my database skills are barely being utilized, and the design and project management skills I was cultivating at Worth aren't being considered. I can stay here for a few months, maybe through the end of the year, but I doubt I'll want to be there much longer than that once (if?) the economy and the job market improves.
I'm not going to post anything about my weight-loss program, because it has been nonexistent. I haven't been to the gym since April, and I've been slow to hit the walking trail, since the idea of an evening with Anni is much more appealing. I'm working on it, though. If I can go for a walk once a week, 5-7 miles, that's a good start. See if I can increase the frequency and/or distance by the end of June.
Well, that's all for now. I'll try to post here more often; to be honest, many of my LJ friends are also on FaceBook, so you'll have a good chance of catching me there.
