Keeping it brief.

Stork and Diff are playing “Fight For Your Life” on harmonica and guitar, respectively. Oh wait, now they’re playing “Just Like Heaven.” And earlier, Merdud and I figured out the secret lives of the 52 dogs in a pack of Umbra K-9 Playing Cards. We ate two pizzas, one with potato-sausage-onion and the other with spinach-mushroom-broccoli. I couldn’t resist making Paula Deen’s Banana Pudding (Bake or Break). The sugar caused my teeth to explode but not before giving me 26 root canals.

Friday nights are icing on the cake at the end of a good work week. While I was on the phone with my dad this afternoon, I commented on how much changes when you’re suddenly happy with your job.

On the first day of spring.

I’ve waited months for today and yet it still managed to snow this morning. I’m really hoping for the whole “out like a lamb” thing to come true this year because I’m so very tired of wearing my down coat and slipping on ice and forgetting to bring a hat or wear my mittens. I’m ready for open toe shoes and longer days (wish true—check!) and skirts! Okay, I’m never really ready for skirts but maybe this year I’ll wear them more often. And thunderstorms. I’m definitely ready for thunderstorms!

Work is still wonderful. (I can’t believe I’m saying that.) I’ve been assured that it won’t always be that way and I’m sure that some days won’t be marvelous but at least the floor isn’t shaking, I don’t have to listen to the boom of what is essentially 46 sewing machines and I escaped the evilevilevil clutches of my former boss! You can have all of that crap in exchange for the stress and challenges of my new position. I think you’re getting the short end of the stick, though.
