Where you been, girl?

I cannot apologize enough for my absence.  Life has kind of taken over.  I am working a full time and a part time job one day a week.  The weekends are my time to relax or so they were.  I just go this spiffy new laptop because I am starting online school again.  I have a coworker who is attending and really encouraged me to go.  So far I like the platform.

We had a pretty good summer and a great start to the school year.

That being said.

I AM EXHAUSTED!

I am still getting into the groove of balancing work, school and life.  Don't get me wrong-so far school has been a breeze.  BUT-I have been super stressed out because of work and life.  I have been at this new job for nearly 7 months.

Let me say this.  I have LOVED every job I have ever had.  I have worked as a waitress, a fry cook, housekeeper for a hotel, sales associate, cashier, and NOW I am in daycare.  I have been lied on by a client and it has left me with a bitter taste in my mouth.  I have never had anyone complain about the way I do things or my attitude until I got here.

Yes, I am very blunt.  Yes, I have things going on that I may carry with me when I set foot through the door.  Who doesn't?  This has not taken away from me doing my job.  I do a lot of thinking at work but that doesn't take away from my work.  These things were thrown in my face as a factor in my work.  These remarks have left me kind of confused as to what I should do.  I love my job, I love my co workers-MOST OF THEM ANYWAY...



It was like a slap in the face.  I am currently looking for another job while I finish school.

Any thoughts on my dilemma?

Pinkspiration!

Pink has to be one of my favorite colors!  Here are some of my favorite pink pins!

 









Eloquii is back?

When did this happen?  I have been gone for a while, so please bear with me.



I am really feeling pink right now!


I'm Back!

My hiatus lasted a little longer than I had anticipated.  I should have been back already but I had to have emergency surgery to remove my gall bladder and have been out for six weeks.  I have been back at work for two weeks now and I'm back!

BTW, I am totally lusting over the pink crop top from the new Zelie for She collection!
