Crazy Busy Day... today was a bit on the nutty side. I went to work after calling my Dad to arrange a lunch date. This was a bit of a momentous occasion, because I think the last time Dad and I had a meal on our own I was probably in eighth grade and we went to the truck stop that has since turned into a titty bar. But this time it was my treat to take him someplace in my city. We went to G.T. South's, and it was yummy. As usual.

...lots of things are going on at work these days. My usual work holds my attention, but other jobs have been added to my plate. It's exciting and stressful...all at the same time. I'm learning more and more to manage my workload. I don't think I can be a person anymore who does one thing completely before moving on to the next task. Some things should be worked on each day, and I can't just try to clean out my inbox before doing them. Am hoping to get a better grip on it.

....I totally love how green things are becoming. Spring and Fall are by far my favorite times of year. I love how everything seems so new in the Spring. It's time for new beginnings and fresh starts. That's what nature does, no? And the Fall is just a wonderful time for me. I love the smell of the dried leaves in the air. By far one of my favorite smells.

...I could so do with some warmer temps, though. Am tired of being cold!

...Speaking of being cold, we ditched our velour blanket this weekend. It seemed like such a good idea at the time.... being all snuggly warm under a soft blanket. We just didn't anticipate that being so snuggly warm would make us sweat through our jammies. So we turned it in for a cotton blanket, similar to the one we had (and wore out) when we first got married. And we're sleeping a bit more comfortably. Until one of us has to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.... then a bit of insomnia kicks in. Good times, getting older is....

Sorry Noah had a problem. It was just the thing to make a shitty day shittier, if that is possible.

I see we're going from freezing temps on Tuesday to 80 degrees Saturday. Are we not allowed the nice 65 degree weather for a few days? lol
