Back to Work

Well, on days like today I remember what it was like to be a kid and miss it. I really loved this last week. I felt more like myself than I have for a while, and knowing that tomorrow is coming along to ruin it bothers me. I feel like I've lost the wonder at starting new things that little kids have but I've retained all the petulance.

Ah well, no sense crying over spilled milk (no matter how much you want to pout and stomp and scream).

It's back to work, but For the time being I have some beautiful flowers to look at!!!!

My brother and his beautiful girlfriend sent me these lovelies for my birthday! I haven't gotten flowers for quite a while so this was pretty exciting for me. J asked me if I'd be taking care of them, and I said "maybe." I'm not exactly the most "green-fingered" gal you're ever going to meet. But if it means looking at these a little longer I will definitely do it. It brings a little spring into the house, and I think we could use it, especially since we are supposed to get up to 8 inches of snow tonight. Disgusting.

J also broke out the surprises this weekend for my birthday, he made a fabulous chocolate desert for me and bought some candles to go with the gorgeous flowers. It was as nice a setup as we've had since he proposed three years ago. It was a really nice night.

I guess we will just have to find fun things like this to look forward to in the midst of all the work that will be the next 11 weeks. But, I fully plan on keeping you all updated on how long before summer vacation is coming! Eleven weeks (a little less, eleven weeks from last Friday) until vacation begins. I got through the last 11 without issue, I should get through the next 11 as well. At least I have a great, relaxing week under my belt to begin with. It'll keep me from being dragged back into it kicking and screaming, but it might not stop me from being a little petulant..
