Obligation Blogging

I promised a certain mother of an adorable tu-tu'd 6 month-old that I would blog about 5 days ago. Unfortunately for everyone else, this might be a real snooze-fest (as Brent would say).

It's been a pretty blah week around here. Before I say anything else, though, I would like to publicly say THANK YOU for all your thoughts and prayers (T&P) for the Pillers' clan this week. I can really feel that you care and I appreciate that. I feel like this blog has had a lot of blah going on this summer where I've been asking for T&P, so thanks for hanging in there with me. Not everyday's a party, right?

This is my last week in Travel Pay. Starting on Monday, I will be the supervisor of a customer service operation in our Debt and Claims directorate. I'm excited for a change and for more responsibility (like 26 people reporting to me type of responsibility...) but sad to leave the people I've gotten to know really well over the last two years. It really hit me today when I was cleaning out my file folders for a contract procurement that I have worked on since February of 2008. A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into those documents that took me only seconds to shred. Eh, things change - get over it, Lindsey. It gets easier the older you get...but I'm not that old yet.

Here are a few pics from my farewell luncheon at Chile Verde yesterday:

Here's a random food event - on Saturday, Brent and I met Chris at Bub's Burgers in Carmel for lunch. The challenge - put down The Big Ugly burger and get your picture on the wall. It's a 22 oz. patty the size of a frisbee when it's raw, and a 16 oz. manly patty when cooked. Brent finished it with no problem and I wish I had ordered one too. But really, do I want to have my picture on the wall for eating mass amounts of meat? Kinda.

The good news of the week is that the sixth semester of grad classes officially ended tonight at 8:30 after I limped to the car after the Corporate Finance final. It.was.a.doozie. One more semester and I'll have three more letters to add to my name after an especially productive 2009. Let there be light!
I hope everyone has a great weekend and I hope for better blog material next week. Goodnight, you Kings of New England, you Princes of Maine. (name that movie for a bonus point...)
