This week has been TOUGH. There's just no way around it. I think the combination of the time-change, coming back from vacation, the crazy weather we're having and oh yeah- almost being in my third trimester alllllll caught up to me at once. I haven't slept well at all lately and if you have seen me this week- you would know that's the truth ;) Bags under my eyes and a ponytail every day this week at work... I just embraced it and hoped my coworkers weren't too scared of me.
And even though it's been an annoying, emotional week things could be a lot worse. There was a 12-car accident this week on the bridge that I take home every day. The road was shut down for hours, a car went into the river and I don't know how many people were injured (or worse). I feel very fortunate that I wasn't in the wreck or affected by it at all- and it really makes you rethink the little things you might have been complaining about an hour earlier. This life is truly a blessing and I can't take that for granted.
So I'm ready for this weekend and for some regrouping. Ready to shake off this week's slump and get on with it. Spending time with family and friends, getting things back in order and hopefully starting on a very long baby to-do list. All of the things that I've been saying, "I'll do that after vacation" suddenly feel very, very pressing. Even though I know there is still a good amount of time to get things done, I am ready to chip away at the to-do's and get a little sanity and order back in my life. Post-vacation chaos is real, folks.
At least we always have sports- right? :) Did everyone join in the March Madness bracket fun this year? The first couple of days of the tournament are generally pretty fun in our office. We have a TV in the common area just outside my office so it's on all day for score updates. Today my boss is buying everyone lunch so we can eat and watch some hoops as a mid-day break, which will be nice. I've got Kansas, Oklahoma, UNC and Michigan State as my final four- what about you all??
