Weekend Warrior

It's Saturday.
& as you know,
I am at work.
Normally very unoptimistic about my predicament,
but today is slightly different.
A Man walked in to the gym,
(a Man I see every saturday at 10:00 a.m.)
and said "Hello Penny," with a smile (as he usually did)
"Hello," I reply.
Then he says something that
surprisingly turns my frown upside down.
" Penny, the weekend warrior."
To my amazment this one little comment
meant more to me than apples in applesauce.
Considering I work every single weekend,
Friday, Saturday, & Sunday;
dealing with who knows what complaints
and angry people, drama, people's current crisis issues,
as well as my own.
the term "weekend warrior" meant not only
that this man notices all the craziness I deal with
& try too handle with extreme caution
 every weekend of my life,
but that I also come out on top.
Sometimes all someone needs
is a little recognition.
& that I did.
..Thank you Man.

A New Chapter

I've been M.I.A for quite some time now, but it’s time to start over new, time to start a new chapter in my life. Things weren't going that great for a while but they are slowly getting better as time goes on. So tomorrow starts a somewhat of a new journey for me. At work I am entrusted with opening my department, it's a major task but I’m looking forward to it. I'm ready to show everyone that I can succeed and I’m ready to take on more responsibility although 6:00 AM isn’t looking like too much fun, but I'm willing to do it to get ahead in my company. The bright side is I get to get off at 3:00, after which I am headed to a job interview, where they serve the best food known to man... PIZZA of course!! I hope I get it...

Dear Laptop

Dear Laptop,
I'm sorry that you were stolen from my car last night.
I guess I can only be so upset considering I'm the one who left you in there.
I never leave you in the car like that but quite frankly I was too lazy to go get you out.
I called the cops and they are doing everything they can to find you. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you but I'm not going to hold my breath.
But you can't be mad at me laptop because some days you were lazy too. I mean you were sooo slow sometimes. You had no reason to be. I kept you very clean. You should have listened to me when I told you to hurry up. Regardless though, I do apologize for slamming you shut that one day. That was my bad.
I wanted  to say though that if we are not reunited I will miss you a great deal, even if you did act immature at times and wouldn't connect to the internet. You helped me get through so much school and boredem.. sometimes at the same time. Thank you for always helping me with research. We racked up some serious browsing time together didn't we?
Thank you for keeping all my pictures organized and stored for me. Keep them safe. At least you have pictures to remember me by. Thank you for being there with me on lonely days, and rainy days, and sad days. Thank you for all the music sessions we jammed to. Thank you for showing me all those awesome Youtube videos like Charlie and Harry and Kandee Johnson. Thank you those few but special days we blogged together. I will never forget you Laptop. Think of this experience as a "Live & Learn" lesson for the both of us.
Thankfully we did set several passwords...stay strong my friend.

Sincerely Your Owner,
