Is it Friday yet?

My new adventure has now begun. First off I want to just say I hope I don't bore the hell out of you all. My life just isn't all that exciting. But having been encouraged by Kerry, AliceKay and ChicagoLady, I decided to give it a try. Tori... thank you for the welcome. I look forward to getting to know you.

I guess I should start off with some get to know you stuff. Most of you know I am from Southeastern New Hampshire. I've lived here all 49 years of my life. I really enjoy New Hampshire except for the terribly long winters, and once the cold and snow arrives, you will see just how much I dislike the winter.
I am divorced and the mother of two adult (ok of legal age) kids. Eric, is 23 years old and lives in his own apartment about a half hour away. Sara is 21 and a Senior at the University of New Hampshire. She should graduate in May with a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology. Anthropology is the science dealing with the study of man and his origins and culture, not bones and dinosaurs. We , (and I include myself here) learn something new every day! LOL
So as you can see, I have a semi empty nest thing going on here. I say semi because I share my sofa time with my 6 yr old chihuahua, Huntababes. (I didn't name him.) He's a sweet lil boy and I will post some pics of him and my awesome kids soon.

Ok so...I have a decent job working for a government contractor. We manufacture mountable flashlights, night vision goggles, weapon siting systems, just about anything optical, for the military. With the things going on in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is rewarding to know that I am doing something to help protect our troops while they protect me, regardless of how I feel about the War itself.
I work 10 hour days, 5 days a week, with every other Friday off, unless overtime is required.
My work day starts at 5:30 am, so I am up pretty early. Good thing I am a morning person.
I get home around 4:30 pm. It's a long day, for sure.
In my free time I like to read, hang out with my friends, watch dvd's, and of course spend time online. I have made some great friends in the 9 or 10 years that I have been online.

This week has been a pretty good week so far. No one has pissed in my cheerios in several days, and hopefully I can coast thru the remainder of the week with no major roadblocks. This is my off Friday week and with the long Holiday weekend coming up...it will make for an even longer weekend. You gotta LOVE that!! I am hoping that nasty hurricane will NOT blow thru here and mess up the weekend. I haven't heard the latest reports but I am keeping my fingers crossed. Of course...if it does, I do have alternate indoor activities planned. ;-)

Alright this is a start. :-) I will return!!
