Bill finally got his big promotion! I really shouldn’t say finally because once you’re a team leader, Wegmans policy is that you stay in your position at least a year before you can apply for something new/higher. So he got full time two days after we started working in Fairfax. Then he got Meat Team Leader about six months later, in April 2011. Then in March 2012 he was promoted to Service Team Leader (11 months). Only 10 months later he already has moved up again. I am so proud of him. He will be the Overnight Management Trainee for about a year then he becomes the Overnight Manager. It’s exciting because it means we both have jobs now that show our hard work paying off. Some days it feels like we just work and work and never get any where. So this is big!
Less exciting is the continuous journey to start our family. We are trying, but are now dealing with a very temperamental Aunt Flo. She visited two weeks early last cycle and had not yet visited this cycle, putting us at 42 days since she last stopped by. This has prompted two pregnancy tests. To our dismay, they have been negative. Aunt Flo is being rude…she will probably show up completely unannounced just when we don’t want her company, AKA this weekend in NYC.
Speaking of good, old New York, New York, I’m excited to go! The last time I was there was in college and we were on a class trip. We went all over Manhattan but didn’t really see much. I saw Times Square and ate at The Hard Rock New York but that was about it. This time we will go atop the Empire State Building and Rockefeller Center. I will go exploring Central Park and discover the exact spot where Kathleen Kelly tells Joe Fox, “I wanted it to be you. I wanted it to be you so bad.” It’s just too bad we aren’t going in the Fall, or I could wander saying, “Don’t you just love New York in the fall?” In case you didn’t know, You’ve Got Mail is one of my favorite movies of all time!
We are also seeing a show on Broadway! Wicked! Almost everything on my New York City bucket list will be complete. I wanted to go to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island but Hurricane Sandy did extensive damage, soooooo, it is closed indefinitely. We have a few places picked out for eating meals and I am set on eating a real NY bagel at least once.
The best part will be seeing Bill. I’ve hardly seen him since we got back to VA after our visit home last weekend. Four days of just us, hanging out and having fun. Can’t wait!
