Sorry guys. I've been around and a little busy but also in a bit of a different world lately. My priorities have shifted, but I'm trying to shift them back again. Or at least, join the two different worlds. It's so easy to get caught up in things sometimes, isn't it? Especially when they're full of happy-making.
All my jars have set. Apparently setting them in the fridge expedites the process. Who knew. I took a picture (yet to download.. or is it upload?) and have yet to post it, but I fear this year's batch isn't going to be as good. They've separated (remember how I crushed, then saved for the next day? The end result is what I feared) and when I say separated, I mean berry from juice. But I gave a jar to J.H yesterday and she said it was quite tasty. Even with half the sugar.
I'm struggling on my midterms with a couple questions and I realize I have to snap to it if I'm going to finish them on time.
I guess I haven't been writing because I have a lot of internal stuff going on in my head. Health stuff, you know about that. But there's also been a lot of internal struggle.. about what I think I deserve (relationships, career, etc) and raising the bar on these. Also trying to accept more of certain parts of who I am instead of fighting it (that's been the most difficult struggle. One tries to shut out negative talk that has been implanted for years upon years and you realize it's all just..... perception). I've been walking a little taller with my head a little higher. Co-workers have noticed I'm smiling more (and it's weirding them out.. heh). I've been feeling really good lately.
Having said that, things at work are a little stressed; they're cutting back our hours. I can't remember if I've written about this, so I apologize if I have. They're taking out our cafeteria people and bringing in a new company to run the retail side of things. Those people are being distributed throughout the department. My shift is being cut 30min/day. This is NOT happy making. I have a plan come the fall which I'm going to start implementing soon. God willing.
Well, I've got to get on with stuff for my day. It's almost Friday! .... which means nothing for me because I work the weekend. But many of you don't, so I hope you have a great end to the week :) And Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canucks ;)
