Changes ...


     I leave for phoenix tomorrow, part of the training process for the new position I'm taking with US. Remodelers I've worked for them for about 10 years now and have held quite a few different titles. So  ... here we go again.

     I am "officially" no longer on the sales team and I am now training to work with install. No longer on commission only, (Thank God) and for the first time in 10 years, I have weekends off. Yep... I'll be going from a 6 day work week to a 5 day work week. When you do the math that comes out to an extra 52 days off a year ... that's something like 7 extra weeks, right? Woo Hoo!

    More details when I get back next weekend!. Oh ... and about the iguanas, I did see two large ones when I stopped by last week, still not sure what's going on (maybe nothing) but obviously where there are two there will be many. They are prolific little things.

A bit disturbing ...

     Yesterday I was in the area, near where the iguanas live. It was getting kind of late but I decided to stop by anyway, it's been weeks since I've paid them a visit. See them HERE and HERE.

     This was the first time I stopped by so late in the day and was more than a little surprised to find that there was not a single iguana to be found. NOT ONE!

    I've visited them at different times of day. Sometimes it seems that there are hundreds, sometimes only a dozen or so. But None???

     I decided to chalk it up to being there at the wrong time of day, that is until I got back in my car and noticed a new sign.

     It's big and it's red, don't know how I could have missed it to begin with.


     I hope they didn't do what I think they could have done to my iguanas! I'm not going to let myself get upset "YET." Tomorrow I'll stop by during the day to check up on them, I'll let you know how it goes.

   BTW ... I know it's been a while since I've updated, so much going on with my job. Don't have the (well what ever it takes) to write about it right now, let's just say it has something to do with both "Visine, get the red out" and "I heard that some diamonds just fell into your lap." Sorry for being so vague, it's just like most people, my job is quite important to me and when all is not going as well as expected, it can really be stressful.

     More about it later, just know that everything is ok now but this has been a really looooong 2 weeks. Happy weekend all, I'll let you know about the iguanas.
