Tuesday Tidbit: Ay Dios Mio

Ay Dios Mio
Ay Dios Mio, the Spanish equivalent to Oh My G-d. Text talk folks might say OMG, my niece facebooks ADM all the time. Last Wednesday I got some amazing news, yes I was accepted in the Nike Women's Marathon, San Francisco, but later that afternoon, my day got even better...I got ice cream cake for my sisters birthday! Oh yeah and one more thing, 
I.Got.Promoted.
I am so excited, I have wanted this for a long time and was told over and over that good things come to those who wait...well with the caveat that you are busting your A$$ while you are waiting. Well for the last 4 years, I busted my A$$, took time to have my children and rotated through some really great developmental assignments. In 4 years I have been able to do everything I have wanted to do in my family life without having to sacrifice family time for work time. Now the pay off. My promotion is in my home office so my commute of 3 miles remains the same and now I'll have an office with a door and a nice little pay bump as well. I start next week. So are you ready for my title?
Assistant District Manager 
Ay Dios Mio! LOL I am an ADM! Woo Hoo! My husband likes to say, I am the assistant to the regional manager. I am so not Dwight Schrute, even though I really do love beets.
Why I Kick A$$: Because despite my impatience some times, I get what I want out of life exactly the way I want it. No I am not lucky, even thought I feel tremendously lucky and blessed every day. The key factor is that I am constantly busting my ass and I guess I just needed to say this out loud so that I can actually start believing that I have EARNED and DESERVE the wonderful people and things in my life, because I do.
Thankful Three:
  1. This morning's run, I really needed some pavement therapy
  2. For a good nights sleep
  3. For feeling motivated, while I only did 3.5 with my partner, I really felt like I could've finished 5 without blinking. Maybe 5 will be the new 3?

Congrats. That is an impressive title. Speaking of the office. I kinda sell paper for a living. Not joking.

Thanks for the tip on UOP. I know it's a great school, but my daughter doesn't want to go anywhere hot. And Stockton, oh, I know about the cosmopolitan Stockton.
