Morning Meanderings… Life Is Like A Box Of Chocolates

1a

Friday!  OOMP – there it is!!!  I feel like I want to run to the end of the living room and do some sort of touch down dance.

It has been a GOOD week.  I have been back from our trip for a little over a month now and have gone from feeling exhausted and lazy, to “what am I going to do with my life?”, to cautiously putting myself out there, to picking up a few freelance jobs, to slowly developing a name, to a possible local commitment that is flexible and can work around my other projects.  I will know more after today.

EEP. (in a good way)

It has been scary cool putting together my own work commitments and wondering if it would work.  I had fears that working from home would be too hard to stay focused but that has not been true.  And honestly I really really like it and feel I am getting a nice rhythm.

HAZAH!

I am having breakfast with a friend and partner in crime all things bike ride related this morning for putting together a charity bike ride for camp this summer.  I am really excited how that has come together this week.  I built this super cool website:  Camp Benedict Cyclists

I also think I have landed the final author I need for Wine and Words this year. Just waiting on final confirmation and then I can start making announcements and update that website as well.

 

So if life really is really like a box of chocolates… my week has been all milk chocolate caramels (MY FAV!) and not one single coconut filled one.  HAZAH again.

 

Urban Dictionary:

A word used to emphasize ones pleasure and/or approval at something. Often accompanied by spasticated clapping.

For real authority, one should pronounce it as if saying ‘I SAY! (old chap)’.

Bloke in movie: “The Wooden Horse will destroy the city of Troy”.

Loyal fans: “Hazah! Hazah!” *clap clap clap*

    Yes! It sounds as though you are doing what you like while still having time to do the other things that you like. I love staying at home…I loved teaching but I love being at home! Heck…you are free! You can take a bike ride any time you want to…you can drop into a chair and read for 30 minutes if you want to! Enjoy! Hey…you can even jump into an icy cold lake whenever you want to! Lol…

    Sounds like a great week for you, but you are welcome to send any coconut filled chocolates my way……..yummy 🙂

  3. Sheila, I’m happy you seem to be finding your groove in your new “life after work (outside the home)” 😀 I figured you would! lol And “hazah” always makes me think of “Pirates of the Caribbean” 🙂
