Taking a moment

December 2, 2010

Last night was a whirlwind of wonderful! I could not ask for more fun and loving family and friends! It was certainly a birthday to remember.

This morning feels a bit like the last lull before the fun-storm that is about to consume my life. The next seven months are going to be non-stop.

It felt nice to be at my desk early, before anyone else was on the floor. I filled up my trusty Emily mug – a highschool graduation gift from 1990 (ahem) – with piping hot Sumatra, and realized that this mug has been my “work cup” for every job I have held since 1992. (damnnnnn)

I even snuck a sliver off the leftover birthday cake I brought in for my co-workers. You wouldn’t believe how outrageously good it is!

The Breakfast of Champions and/or Newly 38 Year Olds

And tomorrow begins the whirlwind of…

  • Life
  • The Holiday Season and all its merriment
  • Christmas
  • New Years
  • Scott’s birthday
  • Mom’s birthday
  • Opening Day at Wrigley Field
  • The Child’s end-of-school

… and…


I’m not sure what I’ll do with myself after we return from our honeymoon. Will we be able to submit to real life after?

That’s a lot to process, so I will go back to marvelling at my trusty Emily mug for a moment longer.

  1. That cake looks delicious: you will return from your honeymoon glowing and relaxed and real life will ease right on back to itself – you’ll see 😉
