Ha, I survived!

Well, I did it, I survived pole climbing class. Three Motrin that night, and 3 more the next morning, and I'm still a bit sore, but not bad. It was more fun than I thought it would be and one teacher said I'd be a good tech. I suppose I could go in that direction, should I still be searching for an IT job in a couple of months. At least I have the training!

I did miss spending time with the boys, as I didn't really see them for a few days, and I've been tired from the 14 hour work days. Add to that the fact that annual appraisals are due at work, and I'm being shoved out the door, so my folks are suffering because I have no voice whatsoever to leadership, and it's made for a rather crummy day.

The pluses for today? I got to walk the boys home from school. And I had a Vice President of the company offer to be a referral, and help me in any way he could. That made me feel better about myself!

Frugality update? None. I've been eating junk again. I've got to break out of this cycle!

I said I'd put the post it car photos in on Friday, but I actually wasn't that pleased with them, so I'm adding them today. I think I'll send them to Art Car too, see if they make it up.

Congrats on surving your class and best of luck where ever it takes you. Thank you so much for the tip about the book. I just ordered it.

Good luck with quitting smoking CoachDad - I know you will do better than my dad, who didn't quit until a quadruple bypass, at the age of 56.

Nice shot, J9. Where's the one you shared during the Team Meeting? You looked SO "Village People" in that particular photo!

You mean this one?
Yes, I am looking Butchy McButchButch in that one!
