A New Day

Although I am still waiting to schedule my certification exam, I’m starting to get my life back in bits and pieces. It’s like suddenly I can breathe freely again. This past weekend, I was so thankful to have three days rather than just two. It’s like I got to start my summer and my new life off with a bang. And what did we do for three days? Not a damn thing. We hibernated in the dark air conditioned house and watched old videotapes – playing videotape roulette “I wonder what’s on this one?”. Let me tell you, the Beijing Opening Ceremonies were fantastic. Oh, you already knew that since it happened two years ago? Ok then, moving right along.

Yesterday was the day from Hell. And unfortunately, my crankiness was sparked off the night before so it was a long day from Hell. Needless to say, it was topped off by some idiot (me) completely destroying (aka deleting all the data and then saving and closing) a spreadsheet that I need for my monthly report at work. Said spreadsheet included a number of pivot tables and 16,000 rows of data. I did this at 4:45pm. Awesome.

But, the complete highlight of my day? After work, after the gym, I got to go home. I got to have dinner with my husband. I got to watch crappy Wednesday night tv with him and talk about our days and just relax. There is nothing better than that. Ok, well maybe there is. I get to do it again tonight. I just can’t even begin to tell you what it’s like to actually come home, have a hot meal and spend time with my man. That little hole in my heart was filled.
