I have been seriously lagging in the blogging world lately. Truth is, I feel like I don't have anything to talk about! Nothing really exciting has happened in the past few weeks to cause me to blog. Well I guess nothing's really happened in the past that's been that exciting anyway but I still managed to blog about it. So nothing new to report. 

I guess I can say that my job is super busy. I had to work from 8 until midnight on Tuesday because of a system upgrade. That was the longest day ever. Someone asked me about something that happened that morning and I thought it happened the day before. Then I had to turn around and get to work by 7am the next day. People do it all the time so I'm not complaining. Honestly I feel like so much time is spent at work all I can think about are work experiences. So today we were having a meeting with a group I am in and one person asked how long is that going to take? (basically you're just getting the short version of the conversation) Well the person answering, this is a woman, said basically it shouldn't take very long because we have four people working on it. Then he, our project lead, said well you can have 9 women in a room but that still doesn't mean it only takes 1 month to have a baby! HAHAHAHA! I loved it. Everyone laughed out loud on that one... hopefully you did too or did you just have to be there? 

So at least I really enjoy my job and I am very thankful for that. I'm thankful I even have a job for that matter. I get to travel back to Wisconsin on Sunday for a Training Advisory Council. Oh so exciting! I'm going by myself this time though so that'll be different. I do have some great girls to go out with while I'm there though so I'm sure that will be fun. It's kind of funny I've been to Madison, I think this will be my fourth time?? Yet I haven't really seen much of the city. I think it's smaller than Columbus, although I could be completely wrong. Anyway I'll be gone for 4 days. I'm definitely not looking forward to being away from Matt. He's been traveling SO MUCH lately. I really miss him. 

Personal life is good, I can't complain! Like I said Matt has unfortunately been traveling a lot lately but I manage to occupy myself. I've got my pooches and great friends to keep me company. :) We're planning a trip to California here in less than a month. I'm super excited about it. We're going with a fabulous couple, Kathy and Jonathan. Luckily we were able to find super affordable flights and a free place to stay for most of the time we're out there! How great is that?! We plan to check out San Fran, they've never been, as well as a little bit of Napa, as well as Lodi. We're also going to take a cave tour, which I am SUPER excited about! We're going to be about 2.5 hours from Yosemite as well so we planning to go hiking a day or two. Overall I feel it's going to be a fun, relaxing, yet entertaining trip. I'm sure I'll take LOTS of pictures and I definitely plan on sharing them! 

So that's it for now! until next time....
