Hello, Mae. Yes, I am still here. Sorry I haven't blogged lately -- sadly, the only excuse is one that I said I wouldn't blog about anymore.
Quick recap - yes, I've been 30 now for all of two weeks. I've been meaning to post some photos, but just haven't had time. I think the celebrations are finally over - although I thoroughly loved the attention and stretching it out for about 3 weeks, I'm ready to move on and just be 30.
This last weekend I celebrated with my friend Katie. She was born two days before me (though some years it is 3 days), in the same hospital in Amarillo, TX. We didn't really know each other then, although our parents did know each other. We were reunited in 5th grade - where we thought we were supposed to be friends, so we tried really hard to be, but were too much alike and in strong competition with each other, so we kinda ended up hating each other. Then, the summer before senior year of high school we were reunited again through ACU's Junior Scholars program. And this time, the friendship stuck. Now, I count her among my best friends -- she's one of the "six" that I have mentioned several times.
Another thing that has been on my mind is an upcoming situation at work. We've hired another girl in the accounting department. She will work along side me, albeit in a completely different capacity, and report to the same VP. I think she will be a great asset to our team, but I'm feeling a little bit threatened. Not exactly sure why, although I think it is because she has very similar qualifications to me and is almost my age. I think it is coming from my insecurities more than any actual threat, but it's been on my mind and definitely stirring up my emotions since I found out that she accepted our offer. So more prayers on that front would be appreciated!!
In other news, I'm headed out for another scrapbook retreat this weekend. Taking the day off work on Friday (yipppeeee!!!!!) and hanging out with about 40 ladies from my church. It will be wonderful.
Ok, I think that's all for now. Stay tuned for breaking news.....
