OK - so it's been a month since I've posted an update. The only excuse I have is that I've been super busy and there hasn't been anything earth-shattering to report. Work is good - my team is being left alone by PP#1 - and we're in full swing for the spring season. Life in the office has been pretty sweet actually.
I've been spending a lot of time working in the yard and around the house in general. Two days went to organizing my dresser and part of my closet. I still have a good day straightening out hanging clothes and removing coat hangers by the hundreds. Those things really must breed! And I broke down and bought a new dishwasher because I hated the one that I picked out when we built.
For two weeks T had a terrible bacterial-sinus infection thing that he brought back from a trip to West Virginia. About the time he started feeling better I caught it and am just now starting to feel human again. Thank God for anti-biotics and orange juice! At the peak of my misery I actually wrote T a thank you note for the "lovely gift" he gave me. It was my little way of making him feel guilty and it worked. And it was quite funny... During this week of hell we had company from Atlanta visiting. My old friend and her husband and 1 y.o. boy came for the weekend and it was really nice. They came down to tour the University Law School and the hubby decided after 1 day that this was where he'd get his law degree. The best part is that they are renting a house in my neighborhood for 3 years. It will be great to have my girlfriend and her family so close by.
On Easter Sunday I actually hid plastic eggs in the yard and had T look for them. I know...I know...It's stupid but it was fun. He just never knows what to expect from me. It was really cute and I took pictures of him walking around the back yard with his basket. Of course I've been forbidden from sharing these but trust me...They are cute.
During the whole funeral trip time I basically ignored my investment accounts. Imagine my surprise when one of my stocks, NABI, I'd bought 6 months ago at $3.06 (down from $23 after a failed FDA trial phase) started making a profit. Overall I'm up an average 42% in my portfolio and am on the hunt for another good Biotech stock which has taken a big hit.
One of office mates, CW#2, just returned from a week cruise on Celebrity and now I'm getting the bug again....Big time. What I'd give to be on a ship right this minute drinking my coffee on the balcony looking at the blue seas....The destination really doesn't matter - I just want to be cruising! I'm feeling a visit to the Royal Caribbean web site coming on....
Well, I have exactly 40 minutes before I need to be in the office and I better get running. It's going to take me 30 minutes just to decide what to wear!
Hope everyone has a wonderful day and I'll be hitting your blogs from the office.
