A Hiatus

I suppose I've been on a bit of a blogging hiatus. Technical difficulties at home (lack of working computer for a bit) and a new job which requires full attention has made for a lack of love for this here blog. Sads, I know.  This hiatus is coming to end, as our new computer is now making life much easier.

Let's play catch up, shall we?

I started my new job and it has been fast paced and happening. I pretty much just got tossed in and expected to sink or swim. I will have you know that I'm doing just fine keeping my head above water.  In all honesty, I did start during a very busy time of year and I've had to just roll with the punches. I've put in a couple of late nights but I think that will be par for the course when handling different events.

On a more personal note, not only I have been busy learning a new job, but I've been going full speed ahead in my personal life.

About a month ago I ran the Russell Forrest 5K. It was a rainy weekend with made for a muddy but fun time. That marks off one of the three I planned to do in my new year's resolution.

That was also the weekend of my ten year high school reunion. We had a dinner party at Springhouse on Friday night for my group of running buddies. It was so nice to spend a lovely dinner with my best friends.

Not that we really needed to catch up because we are all still so close, but any dinner with this group makes for a great night.

Saturday was the actual 10 year reunion. I graduated with a class of a little of 200 people-- not huge in comparison to some of the bigger city schools but sufficient. We had a good turn out with over 100 people in attendance..

Obviously any time you plan an event for that many people you are not going to make everyone happy, but every person who came had a blast. We ate good food, had one too many cocktails and danced the night away. It was awesome to get to see so many of the people I haven't seen since high school. No one really got super fat or weird. Just good ole folks living life and making it work.

In other news, I have ventured down the road of chalk paint once again. This time I revamped an old coffee table that we have in our living room. I have had the hardest time finding a coffee table that is the perfect size for that area. (I've actually ordered two and sent them back) Since this one works size-wise I decided to revamp it with a bit of chalk paint. I used the Annie Sloan Primer Red with Dark Wax



Looks a lot better and will suffice until I find the perfect table.

I will work on carving out time to keep SFJ updated more frequently. I've officially got my footing at work and our computer issues at home are officially resolved.

Glad to be back up and running.
