In the continuing story of... ME!... I asked y'all to ask me questions and/or give me topics...
The man behind the Yummy, MAC, asked: "What's been going on? Work, extracurricular, love life... grab a cocktail, let's catch up."
Grab a cocktail, indeed!
the spring of '13, I finally said goodbye to the company that I'd been
with for a decade... As some of you may recall, I stepped down from my
role as a General Manager for personal reasons. Life was just too
cray-cray, what with aging parents, step-parents who passed on within a
couple of years of each other, etc, etc.. I couldn't be the leader I
needed to be AND take care of business. I spent a couple of years
working with a sister brand and then... the time was right.
May of 2013, I've been working for an awesome Canadian company and in
those months, I've received two promotions, including one that has me
back in a Leadership role. The time was right, and as it happens, I'm
already up for yet another promotion. The job has its challenges for
me, as all of them do, but this one is primarily about the "clientele."
Let's just say they're not as civilized as I'm used to. I'm planning
on "featuring" some of them in future posts. I just gotta check the
"Code of Conduct" to make sure I don't violate any policies!
has the time? I barely have time to update this little ol' blog.
Still, I try. I continue to thrive on discovering new music and maybe
one of these days, I'll start whipping up my classic mixtape posts. Do
y'all even want them? Srsly....this boy wants to know.
rejoined the gym, so there's that...I'll try to keep y'all posted, but
really...it's gonna depend on my progress! I'd hate to show you how fat
I've gotten, only to stay a fat fatty.
and I are still going strong; we celebrated our 12th anniversary this
past December. It's not to say that the year hasn't been without its
challenges. Poodle also started a new role, which has him working at
all hours, stressed to the 9's along with dealing with his elderly mom
who has been in hospital since the end of November with a fractured
lumbar vertebrae that came from a fall that happened months before.
He continues to be my rock, and I, his.
own father was hospitalized in January with a mystery condition. As
some of you might know, he's been on dialysis for the last six years.
Well, a certain muscle relaxant that has a reputation for being a bit of
a doozy for the average Joe like you and me, can linger in the system
which is a problem if you can't pee. Fortunately, he came out of the
haze after extra dialysis treatments. On an even better note, he's
finally on "the list" for a kidney transplant. This is such good news, I
can't even tell you!!
I guess that's it...I mean...there's been a few concerts (Madonna,
Rihanna, Cyndi Lauper), an obsession with a musical (The Book of Mormon)
and the dilemma of using my tickets, or selling my tickets for the
upcoming Cher show here in Toronto. BTW, they're center floor, 8th
I guess you could say that life is good. Life is normal. Life is what's been goin' on!
