Over It!!

So I have realized that I am completely over my job...I love my office (most days) but I am completely bored with my job. All I do is hound people to answer phone calls and emails just to get them to meet deadlines...then I make copies (when the photocopier works) and ship them out...my head hurts. I don't think that it is fair that the little peon (myself) is the one meeting the deadlines and harassing the 6 figure salary executives to meet a deadline that will make them money. There is just respect that is missing. I know that my direct boss appreciates it (she tells me all the time), but there is only so much that she can do to reward me...

I need to start my own business...rather I need to work on starting my event planning business. It is so hard to get started in this field because it is so much word of mouth and it is so hard to get hired without having experience other than my own wedding...hmmmm

Anyone need a party/event planned? I'll start with little kid birthday parties! Communions! Summer picnics! Baby Showers! ANYTHING!!

Save The Boobies!!!

This weekend is the annual fundraiser for my Breast Cancer 3-Day team the MBQD's....I am uber excited!! I love getting the chance to eat and drink and visit with friends and family all in the name of curing cancer!!! I really hope that we make at least $3,000 this year which would really help each of us to reach our goals and would make my Mommy super proud! It's all for her and her memory :-) Well that's all for now...DONATE PLEASE!!


Every dollar counts!

Scratch Your Happy Spot

Is it really that hard to be happy, or at least not complain about everything...loudly? I love my office and some of the people that I work for and with, but then there are some people that really just bring me down. 

Why does everything have to go your way in order for you to be happy? 
Why are you scared of technology (spreadsheets aren't new BTW)? 
Why can you never mention something happy that is going on in your life? 
WHY can you not be happy for someone that is getting MARRIED?!?! 

You find the negative in everything and it is just not fair to those of us around you. We all complain, yes, but we also have positive things to say. This negativity is not going to get you anywhere. You complain and complain that you do not have enough money for this and for that, but you order in at least twice a week. You bitch and moan that there isn't enough time to do all of the projects you are assigned, but somehow you find the time to take long lunches and waste time on Facebook.

I hope that you can find a way to find happiness in your life. If it is work, find a new job. If it is family, spend time with them. If it is spiritual, find a new way of thinking. If it is mental, get a therapist! :-) But please, just find your happy spot and give it a good old SCRATCH!!

I'm Back!

So I realize that it has been an obscene amount of time since I last updated. I apologize. When I last posted in October we were heading into the holiday season (and Halloween is sooooooo a holiday) and I was heading into the last trimester of pregnancy number 2. But now I am back (hopefully) on a more regular basis. So here is what has been going on:

- I gave birth to an adorable baby girl
- Went back to work as soon as the doctor gave me the thumbs up
- My job basically doubled in the amount of work, but thankfully my annual review came around and I got a bit of a raise
- The husband and I have been on a diet...to date I have lost 19 lbs...I am now pre-baby weight...correction....pre-baby #1 weight
- We have also been tossing around ideas as to where we would like to move in the (hopefully) near future...currently Savannah, GA and Orlando, FL are the frontrunners
- We have been trying to keep Liam from killing his sister (Sissy) with kindness...he hates to hear her cry so he comes running with a binkie and her teddy bear declaring "Sissy sad"...he then shakes the teddy bear in her face and scares her...it is cute
- I have been tossing around new job ideas...I love my job most days, but it does not challenge my creativity...it challenges my patience...Event Planning is looking like an option...I will be meeting with a friend soon to discuss going into business together after she gives birth to little Lucy (2010 - the year of the baby girl...I know no less than 5 women who have given birth to girls)
- On July 30, 31, and August 1 I will be walking in my first Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk...I was supposed to walk last year but pregnancy doesn't really allow for walking 60 miles in a weekend...I have to raise $2,300 in order to participate...please donate generously :-) www.the3day.org/goto/annemarie
- I am dealing with the my mother's death...Today marks the one year anniversary of her passing and I am not sure how good I am doing with dealing with it....I miss her so much every day

Well it is now approaches 11pm and I should really get to bed...a long day of work tomorrow. Hopefully I will update again this week! Good Night my faithful readers (the few of you there are)

Please leave me comments! I would love to hear from you!
