I did it, I quit my job, yep....uh huh...gonna go work for Hubby, less hours than I am doing now....yay! I will be his Digital Image Center creative person....woohoo...I am soooooooo excited!

I still have two weeks at my old job and one of those will used up training the new person! That is giving me the colliewobbles...only one week to try and tell someone everything that my job involves....eek! Like anyone new there is no way they will take it all in, plus I am bound to forget lots of little stuff, there is just so much I do I don't think about. Still no one is irreplaceable, I am sure the new person will do just fine!

Making the move just feels so right, I don't know why I had doubts, I haven't slept so well in ages! I just have to keep my feet on the ground for the next two weeks, at least, and concentrate on tiding up at work! Better delete my fav folder out of internet explorer.....hehe!

What else have I been up to....oo, oo I enroled to do Advanced Creative Brushwork over at Scrapgirls! We have just completed Week1 Lessons, it was so much fun, and I learnt so much about blending modes! Just received Week 2 Lesson and I am eager to start (usually a good sign that I am enjoying it)!

Oh well I better go and do some work.....have a good day!

Oh Hum

In a little depressive mood at the mo.....finding it so hard to get motivated to do anything and I am always tired....blah! I need to make a lifestyle change but not sure what to change or even if I can :sigh:!

Well that is a cheery way to start a! Lets try that again....

DH is having a new imaging photo center installed at work...this sounds like the bee's knees in technology....not being a shy person I hinted that maybe he needs a scrappin person to look after this for him :grin:! Although the reaction on msn was what I was hoping for, we didn't discuss it much when he came home :pooh:! I had so many thoughts whizzing in my head yesterday, this could be a dream job playing with other peoples photos! Sorting out the logistics at home will be my biggest stumbling block, I have always felt guilty for not being home for the children, even thou they are now 19 and 16 I still feel they should have me at home as much as possible! I just know if I go to work for DH the pay will be less, the hours will be longer (include weekends) and I will feel horrible that I am neglecting the teens but I would be so much happier doing something I enjoy! Then I start on the 'what if's'....what if I am no good at the job, what if we can't manage on less money, what if it is too much for the teens! I never used to be such a thinker (god I hate it) I use to just take a leap of faith knowing everything will work out.....what makes me so afraid to have a go :sigh:! Oops, sorry slipped back to that depressive mood!

Ok here is a little trick I have learnt through out my 41yrs of life! When ever depression strikes don't give into it, do something postive, if that something postive is for someone else you feel even better!

Woohoo I think I will post a freebie here on my blog, it is a little something I have been playing around with, if you like it please leave me a comment so I know I am on the right track!

Ever have....

one of these moments???? I got up late this morning (again...must turn the alarm on) so did DH, still tired! Immediately start thinking of all the things I have to do at work, which co-worker will be the first to harangue me for computer advice, which co-worker will be the first to whinge coz something is not done their way, my mood was not improving! DH is in the kitchen (only room for one and he doesn't like people near him...not a morning person) and I am sitting at the breakfast bar with DD listening to her talk about what Uni offers what course, yadda, yadda (this I really enjoy coz most mornings she doesn't speak to anyone.....also not a morning person, lol).....time is marching on so DD gets up to grab her stuff for school....her seat at the breakfast bar is taken by DS (just woke up)...DD comes back into the room and DS says hello, which is ignored (not unusual), he makes a few good natured comments...DD then comes up to us and leans in...I'm thinking she is going to give me a kiss goodbye and lean towards her....nope she was just reaching for her lunch so I make a few good natured comments....she then makes a point of going to Dad and gives him a big kiss and hug plus 'have a nice day' is thrown in with one of the cheekiest smiles I have every seen......DH is trying his hardest not to laugh....DS and I look at each other and burst out laughing.....just one of those times when we are all smiling and laughing together sharing a moment...needless to say this brightened my mood considerably.....I was still smiling on my way home from work....sometimes life doesn't get any better!!!!!!

No I haven't left town

WOW I can't believe it has been so long since I blogged or blog hopped for that matter! I feel like the white rabbit - so many things to do and so little time - 'I'm late, I'm late for a very important date'!

Where to start, ok about two weeks ago I decided to upgrade the store program and broke it! No I wasn't smart, I didn't have a back up, well that is not entirely true there is a backup on the server I did ask to have restored but......anyway ended up loosing the site and and all the customer info, ended up reinstalling and reconfiguring.....boy did that seem to take for ever! I worked out I have 4 hours a night to play and do stuff so it is not good when I brake things ::embarrassed::! Still gotta look for the positives, I learnt heaps ::grin::, now have a front page for the whole site, changed the colour and look of the store, recruited some more friends to join me and organized a CT team for the store! ::Phew:: no wonder my brain has gone on holiday!

Of course while I have been playing with the site I haven't got much else done! I was hoping to have finished the front garden by now and started painting the laundry and hallway but that will all have to go on the back burner while I catch up with more important things ::sigh::!
