    Today has been a GREAT day...last week, things were pretty stressful for me - talk of moving my office, maybe having to find a new job; just general humdrums.

    Today I learned a guy who is setting up a new 'cell' to which my current section will belong, was campaigning for me; saying things like 'how usefull I'll be to the new group' etc. My duties will change a little bit; going from Program Analyst/Graphics Bitch, to a IT Guy/Graphics Bitch. That 'could' bring a promotion!! IT guys tend to be of a certain pay grade, for the group of ppl I'd be 'IT'ing'. I'm one grade BELOW that grade now.

    To top it off, I'm going out w/ a good friend for a beer afterwork. :)

    Here's what got me feeling pretty blessed, though.

    My wife, who is a woman, Mary, told me there's a Birthday party for a nephew around 6, in Des Moines, WA (30?40 minutes up the freeway from me). I 'thought' about driving home quick-like so I could ride the bike there...but decided against it. The miata will be sufficiently fun.

    Being a 'car' or a 'motorsports' guy, I feel COMPLETELY Blessed with owning TWO outlets for my hobby. I've been blessed by having a VERY Fun car, AND a rather neat motorcycle.

    I don't deserve things like this - and truth-be-told, they aren't near and dear to my heart by ANY stretch. They are just 'neat'.

    That's all.


    :)
