Honoring her...

My step-Grandma Catherine died yesterday. I had a really hard time with it. She was an amazing woman. She was 94 years old! And up until a few months ago, she was playing Canasta and taking water aerobics classes twice a week. She was incredibly articulate and very smart..... read books constantly. She was just out here earlier this year for a few days. I am so glad I had the chance to see her.

Everyone is off to Michigan this weekend to honor her memory. I wish I could be there.....

So today, I will thank G-d for taking her quickly and without much pain, for allowing us to spend time together these past 15 years, and for the absolutely amazing person that she was! We will always remember her incredible spirit for life and will miss her very much.

Ask and you shall receive...

I HAVE GOOD NEWS TO REPORT!! :o) It's about time, right? I finally got the promotion that I've been up for since June! WOO-HOOOO! I am really excited. I start this new position at the beginning of September. It's more responsibility, more money, and more perks.

I am extremely stoked, to say the least! Jon was out of town last night and I couldn't get a hold of any friends so I ended up taking myself out for sushi... which was amazing! And then I went to see the movie Camp. Ever heard of it? It was kind of like a bad Dawson's Creek (if you can imagine that) but with a musical theatre theme. It's about these kids who go off to summer camp and have to put on a bunch of shows and then at the end, a big review... which Stephen Sondheim goes to see! It is pretty hilarious. The cast was great... the writing stunk. It was produced by Bernard Telsey. I knew no one in their right mind would want to see that with me so I figured it was a perfect time to go. I also got my hairs cut and highlighted. It was definitely a ME night.

Feeling much better.... looking forward to celebrating this weekend!

These days are stinky...

I haven't written in a while (again), because I've been waiting for something good to happen. I didn't want to continually write about bullshit... about stress and decisions and work. I wanted to write about exciting things. I wanted to report a promotion or a great movie or how fabulous my personal life is.... but that won't happen either. Everything IS stressful and confusing. What I always thought was solid and strong may not be. What once made me happy is making me feel uncertain and frustrated.

I'm at that point in my life where I just want things to fall into place. I want to be lead in the direction that I'm supposed to be traveling in. I want to know in my heart that I am doing the right thing. Maybe I am being lead in a certain direction but I just don't understand it .... or am fighting that direction.

The next few months will definitely be interesting. One thing is for sure, I cannot WAIT for my NY trip. I'm going in November for a week. Hell YEAH! Now that is a good thing! I miss all of my east coast friends. Plus, I really need to go experience the World Trade Center... or where it once stood. I need to see it. I want to see everyone I worked with at Merrill Lynch and hear their stories. So, that is the plan.... eat, drink, visit, and see some shows.

That's all for now. Hopefully more good news to come soon.
