TGIF: When I’m Not Reading

When You’re Not Reading: What occupies your time when your nose isn’t stuck in a book?

 I spend most of my time at work. I work in the corporate office of a general contractor. I’ve been working there on and off for five years. I started helping them out in their operations department during their 65th year of business. I couple of weeks ago I was offered a full-time position as their receptionist. We specializes in healthcare facilities and we build some pretty amazing hospitals. We also do something others things, like we just built an indoor practice field for Auburn University. We also renovated some dorms at Samford University, my alma mater. This year, we added a power and industrial division, so we broadened things a little. Those jobs might not be quite as pretty though.

Speaking of work, be on the lookout. This artist made us a Christmas tree made completely out of rebar and it’s sitting in the upstairs lobby with me. I’m going to take a picture to show you. It’s kind of ugly in a Charlie Brown Christmas kind of way. I did string the lights on it though, so that made me like it a little better. It’s definitely clever.

The rest of my time is spent with this wonderful man. Ben and I have been together close to three years. It’s the longest relationship either of us have been in. We’ve already had all the marriage and children conversations. Right now, Ben is working on finishing up his degree. He’s an accounting major and sometimes it’s gets a little grueling so we don’t get to see much of each other. I love it when we have nice, long weekends like this one to be around each other for days on end. Christmas will be amazing this year. I’m spending eleven days in Germany with Ben, his younger brother, and his parents. It will be so nice to see each other constantly. I’ve been missing that.
