Oh Happy Day!! 5/15/13

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

This has NOTHING to do with healthy living...exactly!!
But today the most awesome thing happened and I wanted to put it in black and white!!
About a year and a half ago I lost my job of 12 years.....it took me a couple months but I got another job - and while I don't always think it's a perfect fit - IT PAYS THE BILLS!!
So - today - I was just meeting a deadline and putting a project to bed - much to my relief and this is what happened next!!
I work for a husband and wife electrical contractor team-----
My male boss came through the office about 11:15 and said - I'm taking everyone to Mobile for lunch!! What??? Lunch out in Mobile I'm thinking? And then my co-worker says - "Mobile - Do we have time for this?"
And the boss says - "Yep - sometimes you just have to take time for these things!! We are going to Mobile to the Bay Bears baseball game for lunch!!"
And that is exactly what we did. This was NOT a healthy lunch - we had chili dogs, french fries and sodas!! AND - we were losing the game when we left to head back over the bay to finish the work day - but NONE of that mattered. It was totally unexpected and so much fun - and we laughed like crazy!!
I had a really hard time starting over when I took this job - and today I really understood how blessed I was to have landed where I did. Everyone does NOT get this lucky and today was such a happy day - not just because we had a good time - but also because it was sort of an AHA moment for me!!
Just wanted to share that - tomorrow I will eat better!! I promise!!!!!
