1 more day of September

and THIS is the weather I am dealing with?

I see that it's cooling down to the 80's, but I want fall weather dang it! I am reading all of your blogs and you all seem to have nice and cool weather (I am oozing with jealousy!) I can't believe this is the last day of September 2010! Where has the time gone? It seems that summer has really flown by!

My work situation is in a little transition. My office manager offered me a position that is more of a data entry/administrative assistant to the various project managers we have working here. It's a long back story that I won't get into, but the way things have been going around work and the way it was presented to me, I felt like they were pushing me out of my job for a less qualified individual that happens to be part of the bosses family. Then they were just going to move me where I wasn't happy. Needless to say, after my pow wow with the big boys, I was frustrated, stressed, and needed to get outta there. Thankfully my knight in shining gym shorts was home yesterday so instead of the gym, I went to vent to him and get advice. Long story short - he helped me see the positive in the offer and how this is actually a great thing. The position they want to move me into would allow me to take home a lot of stuff while I'm on maternity leave (and when I finally do tell them I'm not coming back lol). My other worry was stress since the project managers here are very stressful people to work for, and my hubbster calmed me down and told me not to let it stress me out, it's just a job. It's so true if you think about it. The last thing I need right now is stress, and there are WAY more important things (and people) in life, than work and I shouldn't let it get to me. Easier said than done, but it made sense to me and I'm pretty sure I'll be successful at keeping the stress to a minimum. Plus, I'm gonna get a new desk- A-YO! So excited about that!

So a lot of new changes, and all the details are still being ironed out, and things probably won't be set in stone for a week, maybe 2. I will keep you all updated :) I started thinking too, I only have 2.5 months until I leave work for maternity leave (and for good, ha!). Crazy how time is really sneaking up on me!
