It's been a funny old week really - some days I felt really good, and others, like today.... well, let's just say that it just reminded me why I need to get out of my job. Only two weeks to go now, and there's two public holidays in the middle so it's only 8 more days! I guess that means I'm not that far off from being officially out of work, which is scary, but I've made my bed now so there's no point complaining. At least I'll get paid out for about 8 days leave so I'll effectively get paid for a week and a half

Tonight The Boy and I sorted socks and I taught him how to work out if two socks match - we started with "they just do" and worked our way through to "they're the same colour, they're the same length, they have the same letters on them". I'm so proud of him.

Be afraid, be very afraid

But only if you are likely to be driving in Brisbane any time soon. I got my learner's permit today so I will be out there driving in the near future.

In other great news today, I saw my gastroenterologist today and we think my Crohn's disease is enough under control at the moment that I can wean completely off the steroids now. Yay.

In bad news, I seem to have misplaced my keys.....I hope I find them soon.

Take this job and shovel it.......

I resigned from my job on Wednesday. I don't have anywhere to go yet but my resume is finally finished apart from a proof read from some people I trust and a slight rearrangement in the order of some statements, and I'm hoping to send it off to at least one recruitment agency today.

Anyway, I'm about to go off to work and then we're heading up to Witta (near Maleny) for a quiet weekend away. The Boy is with his Grandparents in Caloundra for the weekend.

Happy birthday for yesterday, Bec. These gerberas are for you.

This is the way we clean the house

Thought you all might like this shot I took this morning of The Boy helping us clean the house.
Isn't he just the cutest little devil?
As for me, I'm okay but a bit tired. It's been a big week. We had our scheduled quarterly release of software enhancements last night and I was working from 8am to 10pm with only a short break for lunch. Makes for a long day and an exhausted Lexy. We ended up with a few hassles which we dealt with, and finished about an hour later than scheduled, but everything was okay in the end. I logged on this morning and there did not seem to have been any problems, and I'm oncall this week so if there was anything major I would have heard about it.
I'm still having hassles writing my resume. I've been working on it and have given myself a deadline of this weekend to finish it, but it's still not a lot of fun. I know that I won't get away from my stressful ^%&*^%$^^!! of a job until I finish the resume, but somehow that doesn't make it any easier.
Oh, and I didn't actually really enjoy the play on Tuesday. It was quite a cleverly put together play, well acted on the whole and with an amazing set, but a one of the actors annoyed me and I found the ending to be unsatisfying.....I think I was in the mood for a happy ending, which doesn't mean the play was bad (it wasn't), just that it wasn't what I wanted..... The other thing that struck me was that I'm no doubt terribly biased, but I think that Sutherland Theatre Company could have done just as well, (with the obvious exception of the venue and the set, which is just a venue-availability and materials thing.)
