It's Been A Slice... But I'll Be Back

So as I hinted at ages ago and have discussed a bit on Twitter, things are changing for me on the work front. Today is my final day working at the program I've been at for the past 6+ years and as of next Monday, I'll be continuing my Program Coordinator duties at a house a little further away. The upside is that I'll still be working with a lot of the same people I do now and the commute is a whopping 10 minutes instead of 5, but I'll manage.

It's weird though. I'd rather stay where I am but I think the change of scenery and new people to support/work alongside will be for the best. I'll hopefully pick up a few new tricks and it will make me appreciate what I've got at my "home" program even more when I come back early next year. And it has been almost embarrassing to see how much people (staff & the guys) have made me feel wanted and/or needed where I am now. They've really come out to back me up and I'll miss my crew while I'm gone.

That said, my schedule at the new place looks almost normal and I think I'll be much more relaxed at the end of each week, of only because I won't have to put in a million extra hours (I hope!).

Now to sit back and enjoy the upcoming weekend(s) and get ready for the new house on Monday.

At Least It's Not Friday...

This song has been stuck in my head all day and I think I'm in a better mood for it. It's really, really silly but man, it makes me chuckle just thinking about it.

As a spoof of the horrifically autotuned Friday, this is awesome. I'm just glad it's a joke song.

"And hide them all in a shed..."

You Want Me To Do What?

Did I forget to mention that this was also a very odd, busy and surreal week at work? After an already busy day, I received a phone call that will make my next 6-9 months very interesting... if I say yes.

And no, we didn't go to the baby store (as Kara insists we should). This is totally a work thing. I'm pretty much going to do it but I'll sleep on it before I committ. Should be an interesting fall/winter though!

Where Am I?

Oh my. I didn't expect that I'd miss updating for an entire month! Yeesh.

Suffice it to say, ever since about mid-July, I've been utterly run off of my feet. I just finished a 17+ hour shift today and probably put in about 50 hours in the last 4 days at work. Yeesh. And one of them was a short day!

The nice thing is that I am officially ON VACATION! We're heading to Sarnia tomorrow (today?) to attend Julie's uncle's wedding and next week we're going to be hitting a hotel in Niagara Falls for a couple of days and doing a few other fun vacation thingies around the GTA and GSA (Greater Sarnia Area).
