Yesterday marked my 1 month with my new employer and things are going well. Once each week the attorney chooses two employees to leave early due to their outstanding work production. After only one month, I was chosen! So I'd say I'm doing okay.
Last week seemed pretty long, after working two four day weeks due to the holidays, this past week was the first full five day week in sometime. Not that I am complaining, as I am not, but it seems as though I do nothing but work, come home and do it all again. But isn't that what life is all about? I did get to visit with Veruca on Tuesday evening. He bought his own place, which just happens to be right down the road from my office. Tuesday we met there and he fixed dinner. The place is really nice, a bit small, but for one person it is perfect. It has a great balcony that overlooks the entire downtown Cincinnati area. Quite a view. We had a nice quiet evening together catching up and enjoying one anothers company. We have been friends for so long now, over 12 years, it's good to see that he has done well for himself. Even though our lives are very different from one another now, it's good to know he is still part of my life.
I also made another step into adulthood this past week. I know at 46 you'd think I'd be completely grown by now, but I have always said "I refuse to grow up!", but this week I opened my very own checking account! First time since I was married that I've had a checking account. It feels weird actually. Going to the bank and making deposits and writing checks. It seems as though I'm all grown up now, don't you think?
