Because a certain someone....

... figured it was time for peeps to update, here I am, after many months hiatus.

Work is insane, as we're launching a new website on Monday, all the students are back to class, we're doing a major brand rollout, and recruitment season is knocking on our door.

On a completely side note, I'm back to looking at jobs down south. I have applied for a job in Miami. It's an absolute pipe dream, but I have a couple of acquaintances that work there and I've been told I would definitely be granted a phone interview (given my experience).

It would be good because it's very close to my family in the Bahamas, but we'd be leaving ALL of our immediate family back here in Canada (including all the grandparents).

It's jumping the gun a bit with all this speculation (again... you may recall I went through all this last year too), but I want to prepare myself (and my family) for whatever might come. I just can't get away from the feeling that I'm not meant to live in a cold climate.

Sigh. Otherwise, everything is going great. Work is busy, kids are busy (Maddie just started junior kindergarten this week. It's killing me to see her go off to school everyday).

I'm realizing (okay, maybe I've known for awhile) that I have commitment issues. Another way of saying that is that I'm a procrastinator in the worst sense.

Evidence point #1: my blog. I haven't updated in more than a month.

Evidence point #2: I still have benefits claims for some ancillary services from 2007 that I never submitted. It's money that belongs to me, but I just never got around to claiming it. It's always on my "to do" list, but hasn't been done yet.

Evidence point #3: My thesis. I finished my coursework last January. I still haven't really started my thesis proposal yet. That's a whole year wasted.


I hate this personality trait.

On another completely unrelated note, our satellite signal disappeared yesterday. Because of our schedules, the earliest we could have someone come in is tomorrow afternoon. That's a full 2.5 days without TV. Did I mention we have a 4 and 2 yr old in the house?

It's like we're on Survivor or something. My only hope is that it gets restored before LOST comes on Wednesday.
