Zack Model 5.0

So here we are. Zachary is 5 years old today. I'm still in shock about it. This birthday has, by far, been the hardest on me. I was depressed about it last night, but of course, today's been fun so far. He opened his present this morning (Fisher Price Digital Camera) and LOVED it. He's been taking pictures all morning.

We did our usual Monday grocery shopping and he got lots of "Happy Birthdays" from the staff at Safeway - they all know him and some even remembered it was his birthday today without him reminding them :)

We'll be heading to the mall soon to see Santa and pick up his cookie cake :) Also, he got a lot of cash for his birthday from various people, so we will be going to the toy store to spend some of it, too.

Dinner will be at Don Pablos tonight with my parents - Zack, of course, picked the location. He wanted a place that would sing to him and had 'dough' hahaha Love that kid.

There's a new collage of pictures of him up on my myspace profile if you care to take a look.

I'm just stunned. My baby is 5. Amazing.

Happy Birthday, Zachary, we love you so much!!!!

So Here it is...

I got promoted at work :) I will start training next month to be the Assistant Manager. I'm beyond excited. Word is finally out at work, so I can talk about it now. It was killing me not to. I've gotten only positive responses from people so far. Of course, who's going to give me a negative response to my face? My friend, Michele, said she thinks it's going to suck for me but she's happy it's going to be me and not someone else. That's fine by me - I'll give it a shot.

I guess we'll hammer out the money and the schedule soon. I've already been told that I'll be salaried, but not sure how much yet (not that I'd post about it anyway). Less than the woman I'm replacing, I'm sure.

I can't tell you how hard it is for me to be on the floor right now. I still have great shifts, but my heart's not in it. I'm glad for the money, of course, and I still love interacting with my tables. But, I'm frustrated. I look at everything from a different view now and I think to myself "oh that person's going to be a pain in my ass" and things like that. Oh well. I'll make it through the rest of the year and then hopefully be off the floor.

Looks like I'll be getting my kitchen much sooner than I thought!

I hate secrets

I have a major secret that I'm keeping right now. It's a good one. But, I can't say anything yet and it's seriously killing me. The worst of it is that I could PROBABLY blog about it, but I'm not exactly sure who reads this that I know in real life. And if I blogged and a certain person (people) saw it, that would be bad.

So hang tight, my wonderful friends - the announcement will be coming shortly!
