It has been a rollercoaster of a month.

I won EE*Y for my department, and for the Corporate group.

T and I both got the flu. And were out sick for a whole week. We are still recovering from the cough portion.

Lastly, T's Nana died on Wednesday. She was a strong, fiesty, and determined woman. Widowed very young, she raised her three daughters and son alone. Over the years, I've gotten to know her and find a deep respect for her. (Unfortunately, she was never able to hear me - my voice is in the wrong octave.) She will be very missed.

Who me?

I've been busy. All good things. But busy.

For the past couple of weeks I've been planning and putting together samples for my Calligraphy business. I've started a site and ordered business cards! (I'll share the site once it is more put together.)

On Saturday, I took a refresher class. Actually during the class my teacher was very encouraging. I told her that I had been doing this for about six years, but that I wanted to take a class to be sure I was doing it right. By the end of the class, she was telling me I could teach the class. Who me? Never thought of teaching, but if the opportunity comes up, it would be fun. Guess what, the woman who heads the various programs called me this week. Not sure if this an opportunity knocking or her calling to tell me that I forgot to pay for something. :) We keep on playing phone tag.

Then on Wednesday, we have our empl*yee of the year awards announced. Guess who won? Yeah, I did for my larger group. The C*mpany wide empl*yee of the entire company announcement happens later - I doubt it. Still I was shocked and very flattered. I got to read some of the nice things my fellow co-workers had to say about me and I was very overwhelmed.

It is just really nice to be noticed.
