What a great way to introduce CTMH’s new semi-annual Idea Book, which goes into effect on February 1.

A Slice of Life: Last night, I enjoyed an evening at Mom’s, celebrating her birthday with my sister, Karen, and her husband, John, their granddaughter, Hailey, and my brother Jim, and his wife, Joni. Deeming it too cold to go out, we ordered pizza in and then enjoyed the ice cream cake that Jim and Joni brought. A good time.
Today was a day that I have been anticipating for a very long time – my last day at my old job. I closed a door and will soon open a new one. While I know it will take some time to adjust to all that is different, I am excited and ready to begin a new chapter.
Tomorrow, Mom and I are going to a post-holiday gathering at my sister and brother-in-law’s house in Fertile. It will be good to see those that I didn’t get to see closer to Christmas. Sunday, I plan a trip to the country to see little Mari and her parents. Then, I have a couple of days off before starting my new job at 7 pm on Wednesday evening – a mini vacation of sorts! Woo hoo!
With that, I will be back! Have a great weekend, my friends, and thanks for stopping by!
