Off to celebrate my birthday today! I am now 56!!! Had some quiet time to reflect last night. Was really worn out after work yesterday and hubby had meeting last night so took time to journal and ponder. Not where I thought I would be at this stage of my life...but it's not bad...just life has taken a turn differently than I thought. Hubby's been out of work for a couple of years and I am the bread winner. Guess it's taught me new skills and different challenges.
Daughter met with prospective boss last night. Her probably new boss is working up a proposal to give to her Friday. If Stephanie likes it...she will start work and changing careers in two weeks after her kids have their graduation program. My daughter is contemplating changing from teaching to Audiology. She got her second undergraduate degree in Speech Language Pathology and likes the hearing field. Networking got her in touch with this lady...and who knows where this will take her!!! She is looking forward to the new challenges. I think the change will do her good. She is in a negative atmosphere right now with lots of infighting. She gets in a more positive atmosphere and I am thinking it will affect her whole being and spirit. Plus she has been bored and now she will be challenged with new learning and constant learning. Miss her bunches...hopefully one day we will be nearby. We talk on the phones..but nothing like a hug from her.
Boss lets both offices go out together for our birthdays and he pays (without him). Chose to go to Olive Garden today for lunch. Been awhile since I've been there. Love their soup and salads...and oh yes the bread stix. Will try to hold myself back on the bread stix today!
Off to see what adventures God has in store for me today!
