General Update

30 04 2011

So . . . as always I begin my blog with an apology to myself.  I work too much, it’s true. But that’s finally FINALLY starting to even out a little, helped enormously by the fact that I was able to hire a proofreader to do some my work so that I can do some of my OTHER work.

Reading and reviewing magazines all day every day? Kind of sucks. I feel bad for my proofreader.  But with her helping me out, I get to take a break from that a few days a week and return to making training materials and holing myself up in a room with Captivate, screaming at the text-to-speech function and highlighting pretty boxes. I’m actually looking forward to that.

However, after 1 1/2 years of working too hard and getting paid too little, and being a temp the entire time, there is finally a job offer on the table. It’s not finalized, because I countered for a higher salary, but I think it’s going to work out. So that’s good. Benefits and vacation! Paid time off!!  As soon as I can find a week that I can actually take, C and I are going somewhere.  I don’t know where. But her aunt has offered to let us stay in her beachfront condo in La Jolla.  That’s too good to pass up.

Also, there is talk of me being sent to the Philippines to train another team.  Hahahahahahaha. I don’t know what I think of that except C pouted when I said I could be there anywhere from 2-6 weeks. I want to go, but 6 weeks is rough. I suppose I’ll just deal with it when it happens.

Other than work, I have no news. Because other than work I have almost no life. However, I’m going to be making efforts to actually cook again, and to that effect I’m finally using the ice cream maker Casey gave me and making a honeydew sorbet. I’m also making C’s favorite breakfast. And I’m making tiny little promises to myself that I’ll return to writing in my blog.
