Michelle's Misadventures

Hello, it's me

Yes, it's been a little while, Blog. I've been involved with my own drama. Yes, the boyfriend and I had "the talk". You know the one. The "I love you very much, but the concept of marriage freaks me out" talk. I gave him a one year deadline (exactly when that year officially runs out was not discussed) to figure out if he can overcome his issue with the whole marriage thing. Men, they're enough to drive a sane woman crazy!

Still no word on the interview for the new job (or "role" as we Hewitt-ites call them). The stupid recruiter has put me off so many times, I can't remember if it's been postponed 5 or 6 times. Here's what she told me on Friday. "Well, there are three roles available. They've decided on two, they're just making decisions for the 3rd one now. You're still in the running, and I'll call you when I find something out." Okay, so even if I do get it now, I'll always have in the back of my mind that I was the last one chosen. Oh God, flashbacks of junior high and high school gym class are flashing before my eyes....

I got a new cell phone over the weekend. Gotta occupy my non-married self with something new, right? That's all for now.

It's about time

My "dry spell" has FINALLY ended girls (we all know what I'm referring to). It's about #$%^ing time.

I still haven't found out if I got the other job that I interviewed for at Hewitt. The recruiter keeps calling to tell me that the hiring manager hasn't made a decision yet. How hard is it?

Meg (isn't she adorable?)

Bethany and Jon

I'm back

The memorial service was very emotional. There were pictures of Nathan when he was just born, before he got sick, and when he was hooked up to the life support machines. They also had his hand and footprints, and the teddy bear that was in his crib. He was a beautiful baby. Bethany and Jon, Meg (Bethany's daughter),Bethany's parents and grandma, and other family members were there.

After the service, Meg was holding the teddy bear. She said, "This bear used to belong to my little brother, but he can't take care of it anymore, because he died. I'll take care of the bear, until I see him again in Heaven. Then I'll give his bear back to him." I started crying; it's so sad.

I left my parent's house this morning. I was woken up by the doorbell ringing at 7 am. The roads were slippery, and some high school kid slid off the road and ran down the mail box. No worries though. The mail box gets wiped out about once a year, so they already have a spare.

Oreo is now eating his low protein cat food, since I showed my mom how to fix it for him. :)

That's all for today.

I'm off...

To Battle Creek for Bethany and Jon's baby's (Nathan)memorial service.

I also got some good news today. I had an EKG on Saturday, and my doctor called with the results this evening. There is nothing wrong with my heart. So, basically the equipment that the internist has at his office is a bunch of $%^&! One less thing for me to concern myself with. :)


Yes, it's me, Michelle

The story begins

Well, here it is. I have my very own "Blog". I can't pretend to be trendy, if everybody who's anybody has one, and I don't.
