Wow, seems like so long since I've written in here. The last three weeks have been a little busy and crazy. My daughter was home for two weeks at Christmas and was SO looking forward to "hanging out" with her, just the two of us doing whatever we wanted. As it ended up, her dad (my ex) was in the hospital for a week of "our" time and she spent most of it at the hospital, waiting and making some decisions. Needless to say, she was freaked and didn't handle this too well, so I was with her throughout! Yes.....I spent most of that time with her at the hospital supporting her and helping her out. Even traveled to Cleveland Clinic, spent the night in a VERY uncomfortable chair and waited there too. Thankfully her dad did finally get better and home from the hospital, but that's not how we wanted to spend "our" time together. I didn't even talk to her dad (didn't have anything to say to him), but just being there with her was everything she needed from me.

Then, to top things off, getting back to work on Jan. 2 was like diving into a whirlwind of endless papers. So much work to be done, not enough hours in the day. I've been spending a lot of extra time at work trying to see the light of day. I think today was the first day that I didn't stay late. I think I might be seeing some progress, but the daily work doesn't stop just because I'm behind and overwhelmed. Actually, my whole department is backed up, so I don't feel like I'm the only one who's buried in paperwork. I think all the extra time is starting to catch up with me....all I did today was yawwwwwwwnnnnn!!!

So, is it "spring" for anyone else?? Here in Ohio we've had weather reaching 65+ degrees the last few days. Feels like spring in the air, but I know it won't last. It just feels really weird to have such nice days in early January.

Hope everyone is having a good week so far. I think it's time for my pajamas and a little relaxation before I hit the sack...........
