Mostly a quiet week
Happy President's Day. It doesn't really matter too much in the big scope of things since both Mike and I still have to go to work. But that's ok. I never got President's Day off at my old job either so it's not a big loss. Of course would be great to have a long weekend but hey is what it is right? I do have a sushi date with two work friends later so that will be fun and something to look forward to to get me through my Monday. :)
This past week was pretty quiet. Our wedding anniversary was on Monday (10th). We were going to a special dinner but then decided to push that to Tuesday instead. Tried a Mexican place we had been meaning to try for quite a while - Hacienda Don Manuel in Brookfield. Was pretty tasty and the margaritas were really good. We'll need to go back some time. Rest of the week was pretty low key as Mike was in Chicago Thursday to Sunday. So I had a bunch of quiet evenings and a quiet weekend.
Saturday I went to the library and got a few books and then stopped at the coffee shop across the street for a bit. Had some tea and a breakfast sandwich while watching the world go by. Eventually made my way back home. Brrr was a cold day on Saturday. Sunday was a bit warmer and I think today isn't supposed to be too too bad. I mean I know it is winter but I am just not a fan of it, what can I say?
Tomorrow is Mike's birthday. No big plans really. He's not a fan of big celebrations so I guess we'll see how it goes. May have a few friends join us for dinner/drinks. We'll see what happens I suppose. Will see what we do this coming weekend too. Had to cancel our plans for Chamard last weekend so maybe we'll do that this weekend or maybe the following one instead. We have a check up appointment with Sherlock at the vet on Saturday (can't believe it's been a year). So yeah, we'll see. It's only Monday so the weekend feels ten million years away. Haha.
Oh, I forgot to say. I applied for an open Associate Team Lead position in my department and had my interviews these past weeks. And found out late last week that I got it. There were two open positions so it's me and one other girl from my department. It's a promotion and a raise. Pretty exciting and a bit terrifying all at once. haha. But it's good to set challenges for one self and be able to grow and learn. On to the next adventure so to speak. :) I was a manager at my old job so really shouldn't be that much of an adjustment but of course corporate culture tends to be a bit different than what we had at my last smaller family opened company. But like I said, on to new things and new challenges. Let's see what 2020 brings. :)
