So many things…

July 23, 2006 erinstine

How do.  It has been a long time since I’ve posted anything and it’s kind of hard to say why.  But I will try, for you, my loyal 12 readers (particularly Alyssa, who reminded me I haven’t done this for awhile in her very funny voicemail).

Part of the reason I haven’t written is that I have been trying to avoid being overly negative.  Believe me, there definitely is a draft saved that will not be making it out for your viewing pleasure/pain.  The thing is that, honestly, it’s been a difficult past few weeks.  It’s getting better, but it’s been traumatic.  As you all know I’ve been at my new job for awhile and literally every week there has been something weird.  There have now been TWO fires at my branch (one shut us down for five days), a random power outage, and a couple other things I can’t officially talk about.  It’s insane to say but this past week was the least freaky because the weirdness ONLY had to do with the weather – a scary storm ripped through town this week and left a huge chunk of the city without power – our branch was without water briefly (and the power went out yesterday evening).     

So along with just sort of learning the ropes and trying to feel like I’m a part of the team, I’ve felt personally unsafe.  This is a terrible combination.  I was even skimping out on running because I’ve been so stressed out, which is another rotten thing to do when I definitely need the de-stressing time, but I just didn’t have the energy. 

You will notice though that I’m using the past tense here – this past week has been much better and I don’t feel quite so lost.  Part of it is because we now have a real phone, have put up some pictures, and got cable last week so I can VERY much enjoy all the nonsense that’s on E! (Talk Soup), VH1 (We ❤ the 70s/80s/90s), Comedy Central (everything but MadTV), and BRAVO (hoooooray for Tim Gunn and for snarking via email/chat/google groups!).  I also got to go read stories to some real live preschoolers TWICE this week, which I LOVE doing and it totally makes me happy and reminds me why I got into this stuff in the first place.

So that’s where I’ve been, my friends.    Since, aside from the wonderful fellow, all of you are not here with me (why is that, again?) I’m just going to shout out there that I miss you and heart you.  More to follow – I have at least two more important topics to discuss. :o)

    Wow – I am famous because you mentioned me in your blog – I feel quite honored. I am like your personal motivator. Also, I like how you said there are a couple of things you can’t officially talk about yet – it’s like the time you broke your ankle or foot or arm – can’t remember – and when people asked, you said your lawyers weren’t allowing you to disclose the information. Hee hee.
