What I Miss Most

Lately I've been missing a lot of food that's in Romania but sadly not here. I like the food here, but the food in Romania was just absolutely amazing! For instance, they had amazing bread which you could get fresh. The soup over their was to die for! All their soup is homemade, which takes a lot of effort but the finished product was heavenly. They also have amazing chocolate just like most European countries do. But what I've been missing the most is a pink grape fruit flavored soda.
Frutti Fresh: Pink Grapefruit (yummmm)
I absolutely love this stuff! It's like a little fruit party in my mouth. This stuff has a strong smell, I could be sitting four feet away from a glass filled with it and I could smell it, at least it smelled good. While on one of my trips to the grocery store I tried seeing if I could perhaps find something similar to hear. Here's what I found: 

I found it at Walmart for less than a dollar. I was kind of disappointed that it wasn't the same marvelous pink color as the one in Romania but as long as it had a good taste I wouldn't mind. I could not wait to get home and try some. I found this drink to be ok but not amazing, it didn't have quite that strong of a flavor that I was looking for but still doable. Never the less my search still remains. There's this new product that came out not to long ago and is in a bunch of commercials and stores, its called the SodaStream. Its a device that makes soda from tap water. At first I wasn't that interested in it till I realized they had...
I now really want one! The only problem is that they are more than I can afford right now. I've heard great reviews on the product itself so I'm giving myself high hopes for this particular flavor. This will more than likely make it onto my Christmas wish list this year. Till then I'll just have to sit and let my mouth water. ;)

Here We Go Again

I really need to do better at keeping up with this blog. Life just seems to be so busy. Recently there have a lot of changes to adjust to. I just quit my job a couple of weeks ago. I had been contemplating on quitting my job for a long time. I was good at my job and did very well, but it just became to overwhelming. For the first month we were there we had classroom training. I was doing really well then, but once we actually started taking calls it started going down hill. I was doing really well the first few weeks, I wasn't overwhelmed. I'm not exactly sure when it all started to go bad I just know that I began hating my job. I stuck with it though because I knew we needed me to be working. So I continued working. After awhile my mental stress was going through the roof. Michael and I had talked about me quitting on a number of occasions but by the time it came to go to work again, I just felt to guilty to actually quit. Then a couple of weeks ago I had my breaking point. One of the other major call centers that works along side of us is located in Colorado Springs. So when the wild fires started the call center was shut down. That put everyone in our call center on mandatory overtime. I think that pushed me over the edge, I was already there it was just a matter of time before I couldn't handle it anymore. Michael and I sat down and talked over things, looked over our finances and decided that I should quit and look for something else. I was expecting to be stressed once I quit but I actually felt relieved. Now I'm on the oh so familiar quest in finding a new job. I have come across several good possibilities but only time will tell. Waiting as always been my least favorite part. ;)
