Good morning friends!
Yesterday was another crazy day! I’ll tell you what – I am COUNTING DOWN the days until summer! Next week should be fairly easy, and then I am HOME FREE for 2 months! Not that I won’t still be working – but I won’t be teaching classes, attending classes, on campus every day for meetings, etc. And perhaps best of all, the boss-man leaves for almost the entirety of summer because it’s so hot in Arizona that it just gets unbearable. Of course, this has it’s down sides (like when you need something from Mr. Boss-Man), but for the most part, it’s nice to just get work done with all the other mice as the cat is away on vacay
So let me give you my Best and Worst from yesterday.
I like to start with the Worst so I can end on a positive!
I wore some new shoes I got from Old Navy (grad student budget – I buy a LOT of stuff from Old Navy!) I know this sounds like a good thing. And I do think they’re pretty cute.
But they left this wicked blister on my food. Doesn’t look as bad as it hurts!
For my Best – because it’s the end of the year, the undergraduates from our department do a little faculty appreciation week. I found this guy in my mailbox yesterday.
Made me feel good.
And speaking of growing – check out my flowers that are STILL going strong!!!
a burst of blue
tiny little primrose
and a punch of pink!
I’m so proud of myself! I notoriously kill every plant I ever own, so the fact that these guys are still rockin’ (despite some close calls!) really makes me happy!
And today the husband is off to work super early, and I don’t have an appointment until 2pm, so I may just stay home and work through lunch-time before I head into the office. SOOOOO nice to get to work from home sometimes. I wish we had a larger space with my own home office and I would totally do it all the time (for now, I just work from the couch!)
And I just want to say a sappy little “I miss you guys!”
Things have been so crazy that I haven’t been able to keep up with my favorite blogs as I wish I could! I promise – starting next week things will be calming down & you can expect more comment love! Is it weird to say I miss someone when you guys have never even left? Whatevs – its true! I said it before & I’ll say it again…totally COUNTING DOWN the days till summer!
Until then – What was your Best and Worst of Monday (or the weekend….or past week)?
Do you have a green thumb? What do you grow?
