I do have to share that things at work have been going much better. My manager is a fan of working with people's strengths and walking them patiently through their...not so strong traits. She approved a move for me from my cube to another with more space and higher "walls". Today she came and asked me to look through the resumes of the 5 strongest candidates applying for our open position. That's pretty good. I haven't heard from the position I interviewed for last week but I can honestly say that at this point I don't even care.
I actually heard from the orthopedist today. I am seeing a guy who is an actual foot and ankle specialist. Of course I can't get in to see him until after the holidays, but January 2nd, I am there. This also means that tomorrow at graduation I will be walking across the stage in a boot/walking cast and photographed in it for all posterity. Sweet. I actually tried to walk in my new shoes and the broken ankle can't take it. So it will have to be cute new shoe on the right foot and big, black, bulky, boot on the left. Oh well, it will make for an interesting story.
Bob and I are actually looking at moving to Florida when our lease is up on our place in '08. Not sure how that would work out, but we decided to think about it and we are going to talk more about it this weekend when we're at the hotel. Sitting through another Minnesota winter just doesn't sound as appealing as it once used to.
Tomorrow is GRADUATION! It's a full day of grad festivities and I can't wait. I am more excited than a kid at Christmas. I don't know what pleases me more, the graduation and all the pomp and circumstance and tradition of it all or the fact that my entire family will be there to celebrate with me. Squeeee! I hope I can sleep tonight.
And just because I am stuck in a rut of pondering all that 40 means, here is a list of famous people that also turned 40 this year:
Harry Connick, Jr.
Benicio del Toro
Philip Seymour Hoffman
Moon Unit Zappa
