Beautiful May Days

May has proven to be gorgeous so far. Its days like we've had recently that make up for all of the rain and cloudy days in the PNW. Good thing the weather has been great because I feel like I'm slowly sinking in quicksand.

School has me completely overwhelmed. I've been enrolled (again!) for the last ten months and I only have six months left until I will have completed my BA in Organizational Leadership *cue the confused looks*. Some day I will elaborate more on what my degree is centered around. In a nutshell, it is the human side of businesses. The infrastructures of HR and how important they are in the big picture. I'm learning how to be a successful and effective leader wich will help me in literally every aspect of my life.

The problem with school is that I am on an accellerated timeline meaning I am finishing courses that would typically be completed within a semester in 8 weeks. Yowza.

Work doesn't stress me out, thankfully. Its just a time sucker. I will admit that bartending is definitely a means to an end and not something I enjoy much, but it is what it is. I love my days with baby E though. She's kind of a monster some times but it is just her curiosity and zest for ACTION! Ha! That child is wild! She's just over a year and not quite walking... we have a great time.

Then there is that thing we all know as "life.." both of our moms birthdays are in May, Mother's Day, my SIL's birthday and every other random thing that pops up. I feel like I can't keep up!

Then, last week we almost lost my Grandma. My Gram means SO much to me. I have lost four Grandparents and two parents... the thought of losing her made me almost have a breakdown. She was airlifted to Harborview which is the number one Trauma Center in ID, MT, WA and AK... I am so thankfulthat they got her there in time and she's now recovering. If I didn't believe in the power of prayer before last week... I certainly do now.

So, I am thankful for so many things in my life and I love my life. However, I'm going through a rough patch! I will make it through though! The beautiful day spent out on the lake in our boat today helped... :)

Happy Friday!

So sorry to hear you are going through a rough patch.
I'm relieved to hear your Grandma is recovering though--what a scare.
I hope things slow down for you and that things get better :)

Yes, it has been gorgeous lately. Hope the sunny weather is helping you get through the difficult times. I'm actually a local HR Manager. I don't really publicize what I do on my blog, so thought I'd share that. Actually, I try to never mention work. When you're in HR there is not much you can talk about publicly anyway - so much is confidential. If you ever have questions, feel free to let me know!
Take care!

So happy to hear about your Grandma too honey. I bet you are BEYOND relieved :-) And I hear ya on the craziness. I wouldn't say I am in a rough patch, but I feel like I have been going a mile a minute for months now and I am really looking for things to just slow down a bit! Maybe we should both take a vacation and meet somewhere in the middle :-)
