Thai Spoon

I had Thai food for the first time last night at a little place near our house called Thai Spoon.  Their food was beyond excellent.  I had the Pad Thai with the Potak soup.  Hubby's meal was excellent too.  He had the Pad Prik Pow.  

We will definitely be going back again.

References and Letters of Recommendation

I am frequently asked to give references to people and I am someone who is kind of funny about references and letters of recommendation.  I have a hard time giving someone a reference or letter of recommendation unless I have complete confidence that they can do the job or task.  Thankfully, our company has a policy against employees providing references, so that gives me an easy out when it comes to a work reference.  When it comes to personal references; however, I never quite know what to say when someone asks and I am not comfortable giving one.

Sometimes I am completely honest and say that I am not comfortable doing that.  Unfortunately, that typically leads to more questions.  Sometimes, I go ahead and give the reference, but keep it extremely generic.

What would you do if someone asked you for a reference or letter of recommendation and you weren't comfortable giving it?

Time Flies

Wow, I can't believe it has been over two months since my last post.  Time has certainly been flying by lately.  Since my last post,  I have officially completed my Master's degree, gone through the graduation ceremony and have received my diploma.  I have also switched roles with my company.  Sadly there was no additional money for completing my degree, but this role should put me in a better position for promotions in the future.

We are moving forward with our home project for this year, new floors in the main living area and halls.  I am so excited to be getting rid of the carpet.  The new floors will be installed in three weeks.

I plan to get back to posting on a regular basis and hope to find some fun and interesting things to post about.
