I haven't been avoiding the blog on purpose or anything, its just that the longer I go without posting anything, I feel silly coming back to it; like does anyone really care what I have to say anymore?

Everything I've written about is obsolete now:

My snarky complaints about how I hate my job and boss are non existent. I know everyone loved a scandalous Sidekick story, but since I changed jobs and I get along great with my boss (especially since she keeps throwing money at me) I have no complaints on the work front. I actually LIKE going into work. Shocker, I know.

Health problems? I've accepted that I have these issues and have been making strides to take better care of myself, my thyroid and my intestines. Nothing action packed there.

Me and Dirty? We've turned into an old married couple after just one year. I love it. We are so well suited to each other, it makes ME sick sometimes. We are enjoying spoiling each other (well, he spoils me and I take it), and we just bought a new car to celebrate our anniversary.

Sidebar: before you ask, there ain't no babies in this uterus. At this point, kids are not on the radar and I'm more than fine with that. I did a lot of soul searching on that point and came to the conclusion that right now, I don't feel that a child would complete my life in any way. I may feel differently later on, and if that happens and I wind up not being able to have a child biologically, then there are other options out there.

Anyway, Dirty is sending me and my sister to Universal Studios to the Harry Potter theme park for my 35th birthday. Yes, 35. Lift your jaw off the floor. He's not coming because he is designing something for my second favorite thing in the entire world and is on a strict deadline. I can't mention it until after it comes out due to confidentiality, but rest assured I am putting my 2 cents in what I think it should look like, and some of my ideas have already made it to the blueprint.

So that's all folks. Are you bored out of your brains after reading this?

I've been at this new job for a year. It flew by so fast, considering that I was out from September to December with the wedding and broken foot, and then for another couple of weeks in February.

Anyway, I met with my supervisor and her boss for my annual evaluation. I was a little scared, because I had so much time out, and came back to a lot of piled up work that I am still going through, but I received a glowing appraisal. I got a standard 3% cost of living raise, and I was happy. Signed my appraisal and was just about to leave the office, when my boss’s boss told me to sit down again.

This is when I got scared. I don't know why, but flashes of SK came through my head. (BTW, that is a hard thing to get over when you are at work because you always are waiting for the other shoe to drop.) My boss’s boss tells me that they are so happy with me and with the way that I behaved when I was out (working from home, conference calls, etc) that they want to offer me an 11% salary increase on top of the 3% cost of living.

Jigga What?

Toto, we definitely don't work for SK anymore. I was in shock...still am actually. I didn't get a 1% raise the entire time I worked for SK and that company, so to get such a large increase is overwhelming. This job is so cushy and I really got lucky when I fell into it. I mean, cafeteria, free movie tickets on payday, spa and gym services. I even got a laptop delivered when I was home with my busted foot, and then they paid for car service when I had my mobile boot on.

Lucky. That's how I feel right now.

Although, I could have broken 6 figures if they would have given me 1% more. Eh, I'll suck it up and be happy. ;)

In the Poorhouse

Instead of giving up something for Lent, I have made a commitment to post more on this blog. Today's offering will be done 4th grade current events style.

Who?: My husband, Dirty

What?: bought a 9 dollar box of lettuce

When?: Saturday morning

Where?: Whole Foods

Why?: because he has no common sense in his head.

Summary: We went to Bed, Bath and Beyond to buy a set a curtains. Since I still have the dizzies, I don't feel comfortable driving yet, so out of the kindness of his heart, he chauffeured me. I'm sure it helped that the shopping center we went to had a GameStop, but I digress. Since he wasn't interested in the curtains or any other nonsense there, he went to GameStop, and since I didn't know how long I was going to be, and in the interest of multitasking sent him off to Whole Foods with my shopping list.


There was pretty easy stuff on the list, you know, bread, eggs, milk, etc. The WF that we go to has a big bin of loose mixed baby lettuce for about 3 dollars a pound, and you can choose either a box or a bag as your vessel. My list said box of lettuce. I know what that means. Box of loose mixed baby lettuce for about 3 dollars a pound. To Dirty, box of lettuce means hydroponically grown baby Arugula from some boutique farm in California. For NINE dollars! NINE! (Never mind that currently in Sevvie, my Aerogarden I am hydroponically growing arugula.)

Moral of the story?: I think he did that on purpose to get back at me for taking so long in BBB.

The arugula was slamming though. Mr. Moneybags made Beef Carpaccio with Arugula salad that night.

Is Anyone Still Here?

You know when you get a new boyfriend, and you neglect your old friends? Well that's how I feel about this blog. I think about the blog all the time, but am too embarrassed to post, because it has been so long, and my blog has probably moved on. Weird, but that's my thought process.

I have a ton of stuff to share, but don't know where to begin. I think that I want to ease back into blogging by doing a meme of some sort. I don't know.

I'm sort of lost now, and instead of making this post into a brain dump, I will end it here by saying that I spent my first married Valentine's Day (even though it is a BS holiday) in the hospital with a kidney infection, and then Dirty and I hit 6 months of wedded bliss, which we celebrated by playing Lego Harry Potter for XBox.

I was Harry, he was the sidekick. My hubz loves me so much. ;)
