If We Were Having Lunch: First Edition

November 10, 2015 Musings 0

Jaime at The Perpetual Page-Turner was inspired by a post written by Ashley (Your Super Awesome Life). Her post, If We were Having Coffee, is a great way to interact with others and share what’s going on in one’s life.

If we were having lunch, I’d tell you-my heart hurts for my city. In the course of a week, a beautiful 4 year old girl, Lily Garcia, was shot dead in a road rage incident and a dedicated police officer was shot while conducting a routine traffic stop. That officer, Daniel Webster, was a former Army paratrooper and nine-year veteran of the Albuquerque Police Department. And my heart hurts. In a city where we’ve had a lot of police involved shootings and the city paying out thousands to victims, it hurts to know who to trust. It’s hard not to worry if you’ll piss someone off by not using your turn signal, etc.

If we were having lunch, I’d tell you-I’m missing Glasgow more than ever! I worry about planning a trip because I’m afraid my memories will be tainted and what I loved about the City is no longer there. Mostly, I’m afraid she’s moved on.

If we were having lunch, I’d tell you-I’m having a difficult time transitioning into my new job. For over 2 years, I’ve been the main admin for my office and now I have to give that up. And yes, I got a promotion and am now the social media assistant for the company. What really worries me is the turnover of the admins. I’ve had assistants before and this year alone, I’ve had 5 (one moved across the country with her boyfriend, the other had a drinking problem & was let go, and my most recent one got his own promotion) and if I can truthful-I’m not sure the new one is going to work out.

If we were having lunch, I’d tell you-I miss the husky so much! It’s been six months since her death and I can’t help but still feel guilty not visiting her the night she died. I keep thinking if I had, maybe she’d still be here. She fought bravely the night before and I hope she didn’t think I didn’t love her enough and that’s why I didn’t visit her that night. I really miss having my diva around.

If we were having lunch, I’d tell you-I can’t find my blogging mojo. The thing is, I’m reading (not as fast as I’d like), but there are days where I long to just write reviews and nothing happens. I hope that changes soon.

If we were having lunch, I’d tell you-I gave up soda about 140 days ago and right now all I want is a coke with lots of ice! I’ll overcome this craving and November 15th will mark 150 days since my last sip!

If we were having lunch, I’d tell you-I just want a vacation where I can hide from the world. I have enough vacation hours at work and am trying to figure out if I want to take a few extra days off for the holidays.

What about you? What would you tell me if we were having lunch?
