I saw this and thought, yes, this is putting it succinctly. But what's important is what happens between the bottles.
We had a wonderful day today. DD had the day off due to a snow day (her very first!), and DH and I took the day off as well. Kind of nice. But what was even nicer was someone from our senior management who I'd copied on my "gee, sorry, school just canceled and I won't be able to make it in" e-mail. Her response? "Happy snow day. Make a snow man, or at least a snow angel." You know, whenever I feel really down, she always picks me up. Life is full of blessings, found most often in the people who surround us. Sometimes, I need a reminder like that. Of course, I would walk through fire for her. Who wouldn't? Well, actually, I wouldn't have when I first started working there. But what a difference a few years makes sometimes.
Nothing exciting here on the cycling front. My pill month will be cut short to keep me in sync with the donor, so my last pill will be on 2/19. Lupron starts 2/16. Otherwise, just humming along in our routine. Work, commute, home stuff, scanning every piece of paper my daughter has ever produced (yes, I am obsessed), wishing I had a spare minute to spend on some genealogy, and trying to survive the bathroom renovation from hell. Oh, and really, really looking forward to spring.
Which reminds me . . .
Here is a picture from the back of my Valentine's day card from DD, which she couldn't wait to give to me:
It's a picture of DD and I, walking on the grass. I really miss grass. And sun. And blue sky. And having wine on my deck. And also having a neck and shoulders. DD always draws people with their arms coming out of their head. Not sure if there is any significance to that. I've pointed it out to her, and she just laughs about it. And that's pretty much one of the sweetest sounds around.
Happy Valentine's Day. I hope you have someone nice to snuggle with.
