2012: So Far, So Good

Sounds kind of ~meh~ doesn't it?  Well, it's not, it is what it is so far - it's pretty good.   This year started with a bang.  I started a new job.  Not as stressful as one might think, as I didn't really leave the company.  I am now working exclusively for one Real Estate Agent and not a 150 and in a different capacity.  I'm absolutely loving it.  I got to keep all my old work friends!  I'm still learning but it's fun, and much lower stress.  I can't wait to see what this year brings on the work front.  I'm sure that will pop up here from time to time.  The only thing I haven't quite gotten used to is the amount of time I've lost with my children.  They are only this age once, but at the same time, they are old enough that they need to experience a little of me time.  I hope they use it wisely.

When I write this you will probably think I'm a lunatic, but here it goes:  I went to a Middle School Reunion.  Well, not exactly Middle School, but close enough.  Those of us that were there went to school from about 3rd grade to 9th grade together before splitting up and going to different high schools.  There were probably about 16 or 17 of us and it was truly a blast to see all of them.  They had such influence on the way I turned out.  I can't wait to get together again.

I've been out of high school forever, but for some reason I've been wondering when my next high school reunion is. I don't even think I'd recognize the people I went to middle school with! How did you all find each other?

How is the new job going Dijea?
The middle school years are very special, I think. Here we call them 'Intermediate' school. I remember them with great fondness, for, as you say, afterwards many went in different directions.
