things to remember

Day 9


I sold some shoes, did some kickboxing, talked to a friend, had a good talk about a different position at work. Soon I will sit down and have some ice cream with my husband who just got home from school.

Day 8


Best part of a spring day is Oberon on draft. I sense a theme at the beginning of this month.

I’m thankful that spring is really here and that I can sit outside in the sun. I’m thankful that I married someone that will do anything to make me happy when things are just not working out. And I am thankful for people in my company who recognize that I have greater potential than the role I’m currently in. Tomorrow I have an interview with the VP for another department, for a similar role with hopefully a lot more encouragement for growth. If nothing else it may spark growth in my current position.

Hello April


Four years ago tomorrow I got engaged to an awesome person. I like to think we’d known all along that we’d eventually get married, it was more about finding the right moment to make it happen. If he’d have had his way it probably would have happened on April Fool’s Day four years ago.
This year we’re getting the keys to our new adult apartment in April. In the lady few years there have been lots of family babies announced in April.

This year I’m making April as pleasant as possible.

1. I married an amazing person, who tolerates my lack of humor, who does anything in his power to make sure I’m a happy girl, and who is always working to better himself and learn new things.

Jar of good things.


It was a nice idea I had at the beginning of the year, to write down all the  things that happen to us and put them in a jar to look at later. Later could be when we feel crappy or at the end of the year or something. I got cool pens and paper for it and had a jar all ready.

Yeah that didn’t happen. I don’t live life with paper much anymore. I don’t print things I do have to or buy books if I can get an electronic version cheaper or similar price. Even at work, I use the task list in Outlook and only keep one paper to do list. So stopping to write down things on paper that I will only throw away later is not in my best interest. But posting shit here is.

Today I’ll start a good things tag and this will be my jar. Let me start my listing the things over the last couple months, in no particular order.

New apartment is awesome and we are settled to move in May.
I have a project with J2 that is shaping up to be rad.
I signed up for a full membership with a fitness group that I really enjoy.
New apartment has a gym so we can cancel that membership in may.
OtherJ has found a morning routine he digs and has new muscles to show off.
2016 will be the year of the puppy.
We will be getting a small tax return.
