hey mickey

I had a ridiculously sappy post all ready for your reading until I received news of a leaf turning over.

Over the last month I’ve whined, felt distraught and looked even worse. After rallying my self control and thinking of things that haven’t played out as I had expected – I decided to leave it where it belongs, in the past. And draped regret over my armor like a prince rescuing his princess.

I’ve had but one wish. One thing for Christmas would do just fine. The rest is just material, I can be rather hard to buy for when I think, “No thought has been put into material items,” (sorry Mom). For me, I wanted to give something to me. I needed to know it could happen and know I could attain it by myself, without the help of anyone else. And before you think of sending emails let me just tell the Peanut Gallery to shhhh. Some things are better left unsaid.

It wasn’t a huge request. Then again, to me, it was bigger than the Chrysler Building. 2006 was a tough year for me. I’ve cried, I’ve fought, I’ve laughed. I’ve drank. And laughed and cried some more for proper measure. I knew what I needed to do so I could properly arrange 2007.  Over the last week I’ve plotted, Googled, and researched.  Lists were made, and business plans established. Last night over food I was unable to eat because I talked and talked. They talked. I listened. We plotted, planned, set goals for one year from now and how I am going to assist them in their growth.

This evening after a run through the neightborhoods lit up for the holidays I returned home with a Bah Humbug, checked my email, and welcomed Christmas with a verbal scream.

I have a new job and will be able to work in my pj’s from a home office…errr….temporarily at least.

Next week I’m going to Disney World with the company. Well, Orlando actually for training… and to chase the happily ever after. However, I’ve been told we will indeed be making a trip to Disney.

Thanks Santa Baby.
