I get to talk to my baby on Saturday. He'll be back in Miami kicking the old passengers off the ship, and greeting the new ones. And in between, he'll have the opportunity to call me. Or, as he sometimes does, he'll call me the minute he gets bars on his phone as they cruise into U.S. waters at like 5 in the morning.
Next week will be better, because there are three U.S. owned ports on the itinerary.
Shifting gears, I spoke to my ex-boss yesterday, who strongly mentioned a director position becoming available that I would need to post for. To this point, I have always been promoted automatically. I've never had to post for a position to grow. Its a little weird.
I need to think about it. Because what I don't want to do is go up the ladder so fast that I fall off of it and meet the ground with my ass. The benefits and money are great, and it is the next logical step, however, I don't want to push it.
I need a mentor to guide me through this part. I don't want to make the mistake of falling short of expectations by showing a lack of confidence and ambition, or by getting too big for my britches.
In addition, this ex-manager is someone I worked with for a very short time. So, I'm not sure that his confidence is warrented. Its true that I have had 5 managers in a year, and all fall under the same general umbrella, so we do interact on a daily basis.
Oh hell. I don't know.
Send me some good decision making mojo please.
BTW - I had to order the Kevin Lyttle CD because the big music store in my area doesn't carry it on a normal basis. But the good news is that I'll be able to pick it up on my birthday, which is next Tuesday in case you're interested. You know how much I like to celebrate my birthday. I'm not one of those women who gets depressed over how old I am or how far I've come or haven't. Its a birthday, and I want prizes and I want parties dammit!
Plus, this is a milestone year. I'm going to be 35. So its extra special.
Have I made my narcissistic self clear?
I'm going to put on my headphones now and listen to Sean Paul "The Trinity" now as I do some work stuff.
My God is he a sexy bastard.
