Recent goodies:

     I realized lately that I haven't posted here recently how thankful I am for the wonderful job I have, in a good company, with a fantastic boss and great coworkers. I am very, very blessed.

     Speaking of the job, Friday I got an e-mail from my boss gushing on me about my work on the Performance Reviews. Now to me that felt like solid 'C'-quality work, so I was a little surprised/taken aback. I intend to collect notes this year so I can do even better next year, as my memory is sludge. But I'm glad she's happy with it!

     Happiness is a big bag of cheese popcorn, that I picked up at the popcorn place on Friday. I've had a craving for a few weeks, and this is the weekend to indulge...

     Because book 4 editing is done at last!! Got it all finished Friday night and the .pdf made for Fed Ex/Kinko's. And I was able to get some extra savings due to a deal they had going if I signed up for an account--so instead of the $100+ I was expecting it was under $80 (still have to buy the 3-ring binders, though). But wonderful! Now I'm just waiting for the call saying that the 4 copies are ready to be picked up. Still doesn't feel real after breaking my back on it all week long (and trashing my health a little--lung issues again). Feel like pinching myself--I guess I won't believe it until I have paper copies in hand! =D

     With book 4 editing behind me at last, it sure is nice to have time to read again, aside from bus rides and 5 minutes before bedtime. Hurrah for books!

I have to keep my hands off the popcorn at present, since I'm having lunch at Applebees with Christi today. Thanks again for the gift card! =)

It should sink in eventually that it's truly behind me. Been shuffling around aimlessly this morning, as it feels so strange to have (comparatively) nothing to do! I can start on other projects, read, and maybe even finally set up my new tv stand.

You do too!

Yay for book 4 edits being done!! (A very selfish yay and a congratulatory yay all rolled into one! =)

Hope the popcorn is good!

Congratulations! I'm very glad to hear that you made it through that backstretch at last.

And good work on the performance reviews.

Thanks! I'm sure glad to be on the far side of it. The weekend feels so spacious!

Thanks again, I'm glad to have that behind me too. ;)
