I think I've had the busiest two weeks of.my.life. Honestly, I haven't had a moment to breath since Thanksgiving. I blame a little of it on the time change. Does anyone else have trouble leaving your house to run errands after it gets dark? Please tell me its not just me. The fact that its pitch black by 6:00 really has me feeling frantic to get off work and GET ALL THE STUFF DONE before the sun goes down. Which is crazy.

Plus, we've been working OT at work because of the Holidays. Great for my paycheck...not so good for the whole not leaving my house after dark issue. And even AT work, things have been a little hectic. I recently moved desks and so I'm getting use to a new supervisor and co-workers (every group dynamic is a little different). There have been meetings and events that we don't normally have to contend with. It's all really good stuff, so no worries, just takes a lot of time and makes the usual work day seem a little more busy. Last weekend, I worked all day Saturday and forgot to tell my supervisor to add it to my time card. So, it wasn't on my paycheck this week. DOH! But, it will be on my next check..if I don't get something sooner.
My cousin, Sonya, came for a quick visit. She lives in Florida so we don't get to see her too often, but it's always great when we do. She and I cooked dinner for our Grandma and the three of us had a fun night of drinking wine and visiting.

This weekend my Mom and I went to Dallas to see my sister AND so I could surprise my bestie, Jonessa, for her birthday. She had no idea I was coming but I worked it out with her husband. I called her as I walked up the sidewalk to her house.
Me: Happy birthday!
Jonessa: Thank you.
Me: So..what are you doing today?
Jonessa: Oh, just baking with my sister. How about you?
Me: Well, I got you something very special for your birthday.
Jonessa: You did?
Me: Yes, you need to come check your front porch.
Jonessa: ARE YOU HERE?!
Me: *laughing* I don't know..come to your front door.
At that point she opened her front door and declared it the best.birthday.ever.
After spending the day with her and her sisters and her sweet baby boy I headed back to my sisters for dinner and the Chinese Lantern Festival being put on at the Dallas Fair Grounds. It was a pretty impressive display and I enjoyed reading the background info on each display.
BUT!!! Even with all that..and the hectic day to day that has been my reality lately..life is good. Crazy good.
