Work…Work…Work…I feel like that’s all I’ve done today. I guess I should feel accomplished, but honestly it just makes me feel behind! I guess I did get a lot done today, but not everything. I’ve got a few more jam-packed days ahead of me, but I can’t complain. I’ve decided this is what I want to do and I should be grateful to have made that decision. Most people hate their job…I really quite enjoy mine! (Most days!) We are working on a Free Holiday issue for Die Cut Crazy! I’m excited to get that finished and get to work on the other December issue that will also be coming out.
I’m trying to get most of my work finished before the weekend. It would be nice to not have the worry of work around me while we’re trying to get to know our new puppy!!! I think we’ve decided on the name Juno for our new family member. Jeremy is pretty set on that one and I don’t hate it! I am really excited and anxious about getting her. Puppies are a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. I’m sure it’ll go smooth, but I like to worry about ridiculous things. (kidding, but true.)
I’m getting pretty tired and still need to jump in the shower. I think I’m done working for the evening and I have another full day of it tomorrow.
Enjoy your Thursday everyone. I will try to enjoy mine.
Jeremy and I have been together since 2002. 11 years is a long time for a relationship these days. I’m proud of our relationship. We’ve been through a lot and we’ve come through it together and stronger than ever.
When I met Jeremy I was a young 19 years old. I was an adult and I knew everything. I was fresh out of high school, working my first ‘real’ job and wasn’t looking for a relationship at the time. I remember seeing him at a quarterly luncheon. They called his name for a perfect attendance award and everyone was clapping and cheering. I didn’t know his name, so I was looking around to see who everyone was cheering for. Here comes Jeremy break dancing down the middle of the tables. I couldn’t help but smile. I knew we’d be friends. He always had a smile on his face and you could tell he was a fun-loving person. Little did I know, we’d be married 4 years later.
After that luncheon, I didn’t see Jeremy for a while. He’d pass by every now and then, but we didn’t know each other. One day as I was heading to break, a friend walked up and started talking about some guy. He was going to have this guy come talk to me. Huh?! Wait a minute….who? Yep, you guessed it….Jeremy! I was so embarrassed. What would I say? When would this happen? All these things were going through my head and I was nervous. Why was he coming to talk to me?!
A few days passed and Jeremy still hadn’t come. I thought maybe he’d forgotten or just decided not to come see me. I was kinda relieved to be honest. I went on about my business doing my crappy job and I see him in the corner of my eye cross by. I was nervous. Was he coming to see me? I turned, filling out my papers and I hear a voice say something. I turned back around and there he is. I’d never been face to face with him. He introduced himself and I told him my name. You wanna know the first thing he asked me? “Do you play any instruments?” What!? Do I play any instruments?! What an odd thing to ask me! We still laugh about that all the time. I imagine he must have been so nervous. We had small talk and he asked for my number.
