Lucky girl

It's funny how much your life can change in a year.

This time last year I was stuck in a horrible job, wondering if I would ever be able to escape that particular circle of hell.

Fast forward 365 days, I have a job I enjoy and work with terrific people. I like the job so much, that not even an hour (or more) commute and frequent long hours can put a damper on my enthusiasm.

And how terrific are the people? Let me put it to you this way - when my cubicle mate went to San Francisco for a conference last week, she said she'd bring me back a souvenir.

I was expecting your typical tourist gift - teddy bear, key chain, post card... that kind of thing. But no... she brought me back shoes.

That's right... shoes. And not just any shoes...Killer shoes!

I think that girl deserves a pair of hand knit socks now - don't you?

In other lucky girl news, my Dad returned from the wilds of northern Ontario on the weekend. While he didn't manage to bring me any moose steaks, he did bring me a pair of little bears...I guess he needs socks too... or maybe a toque! I guess I better get the baby/Christmas stuff out of the way fast!

Love the bears!
I'd probably love the shoes if I didn't hate shoes. (If I could permanently go barefoot, I'd be truly happy...)
