In an effort to get some outside time and to get some weeding done at the same time, I decided to spend a little time in the garden.
Yes, I am a sweaty mess in this picture, but I had to show you the zucchini I picked in relation to an adult. They are 22" long by about 5 inches in diameter and I have no idea how much they weigh, but they are heavy! They won't likely get used for anything, unless I just gut them for seeds and maybe some zucchini bread. Now maybe the little ones on that plant will actually grow. These babies were taking all of the energy, for sure!

I worked and worked on myself. I started doing yoga regularly, meditating, and working on any self-help book I could find.
During that two years in Las Vegas, I dated a little bit. That part of things is pretty hard to do in a place like that. AND, I kept winding up with the wrong type...the type that was controlling and not a healthy relationship.
I had the same issue at work. My boss was a pig with a capital P. He started to ask employees (only female ones) where their tattoos were. When one of them said that theirs was in the small of her back, he asked to see it. This was all in a public setting, all in front of me and the other girls. I had had it. I was done with his childish and unprofessional treatment of us. I told him off, telling him that he had no right to ask that, that he as a pig. I cannot remember what else I said, but it was a big enough deal that he went and hid in his office.
The next day, one of the ladies who were older than me came and told me that she thought I would find a better work environment, working with her husband at his company. They did office furniture and design, as well as space planning. This was so similar to what I was already doing that it would be the perfect fit. I was an immediate hire.
The environment there was so much better. The boss was happily married and he had his niece working there, as the receptionist. He was from Henderson, a much more normal area (sans mini casinos in stores). He was respectful and patient. I would be more able to settle in (for a short while) with this company.
