Hello Old Friends

Geez… Where to start? I have been done with the hard/ long hours of the summer job for a couple of weeks now. And have been procrastinating on doing my first blog post back. Why, you may ask? I’ve had that same looming feeling that you get when you need to call an old friend, but know there is so much to say and it’s going to be a REALLY long conversation. So it basically ends up being easier to put off calling as opposed to calling and catching up. Maybe that’s just me Smile !?

I hate to say it but my summer was super boring. We basically work about 16-20 hours a day, 7 days a week, May till mid September. There is zero time during the summer for anything but work. We ate lots of takeout for dinner and besides the physical aspects of the job there is no exercise. Hopefully it will all be worth it this winter, and we made enough money in those 4 months that we don’t have to work the other 8 months of the year. I’ll do more explaining for what those long hours entailed in another post.

Anyways it feels good to be back. I have some training planned for a fall 5k, and have already gotten myself back into the pool. I am super out of shape, but you have to start somewhere. Hope that everyone had a fab summer and was able to enjoy all the parts of summer that you are supposed to.

Oh also I am thinking of switching to wordpress, primarily because I can’t comment on any blogger blogs. It is very annoying and frustrating, that you all can’t feel my commenting love Smile 

Would you exchange your normal job of 8-5 5 days a week, to work 20 hours 7 days a week but for only 4 months instead of 12 months a year?


  1. i would definitely work long days for a few months to have more time off! sadly, as a teacher its not really an option :)

  2. Welcome back! We too work super hard all summer and take it a little easier during the winter. While I'm not sure I could give up my 1 or 2 days off a week to fish and play, I do enjoy having winter to travel and cook and bake and enjoy. :)


Thanks for reading my little slice of blogland. I look forward to seeing your comments and getting to know you all a bit better.
