The sun has finally come out in the Sunshine State. The temperatures are still averaging 15 degrees below normal, but at least the grey skies have gone.
There has been a bad combo here in The Treehouse of too many hours working, too many days off sleeping until 4pm and too many late nights Olympic watching. Grey skies and cold temperatures make me depressed. If I wanted to spend my January days in 3 layers of clothes, I would have stayed in Freeze-a-chusetts. The other side effect of hibernating in the Sleep Number Bed is that the apartment looks like a tornado came through.**No hideous messy apartment pictures**
I've hinted around that things were changing at work. I can talk about it now, because I am officially on the management team at the Shower Gel Store. My title is Cash and Sales Lead.
It's not a full-time position, but with the increase in hours and pay, I have the potential to make twice as much money in 2010.
Sorority Girl has 10 more months of school, then I can possibly move out of Land Of The Uninsured! I can get new glasses! I can go to the dentist!
There are a few things I would like. I want to get a pedicure more than 3 times a year. I want some new work clothes. I'm on Year 4 of my two pairs of black dress pants and my 2 pairs of black work shoes. I want to save up and take Tom and I on a Legendary Rhythm And Blues Cruise. I would like a new comforter set and drapes for my bedroom.
My new position starts next Monday. Mom is coming tomorrow, to spend a week and watch the Olympics on the BigAss TV. So, now I'm spending the rest of the day making the apartment "Grandma Clean".
