Time to exercise my mind

In just a couple of short weeks I will begin working a regular schedule again until April 15th. Soon my days will be filled with trying not to think about capital gains, itemized deductions, and depreciation and yet that is exactly what my evenings will consist of.

I had a nice lunch with my co workers yesterday and also had a meeting with the partner located in our office. I guess I got a promotion of sorts. Not in title, but in responsibility and pay.

I'm excited to see my co workers on a more regular basis since I will be able to get into the office a few afternoons a week instead of doing all of my work after "normal" business hours.

Best wishes in 2009!!

Funny story about Husband.

So we were watching a football game a couple of weeks ago. Not sure what game but it was on either NBC or ESPN because it was in HD. It was commercial time and for some reason Husband didn't start flipping channels as he is known to do (I swear he has television ADD). A Cialis commercial comes on (if you don't know what Cialis is, google it ;) ) and outloud husband says, "I wonder why they show this commercial in ED?" I just looked at him and asked, "did you really just say ED?" And then we both just busted out laughing. Heck, I bust out laughing just thinking about it. lol

Remind me again of the benefits of living in ND?

Seriously...It is December 16th(so technically not even winter yet) and we have had 2 huge storms. I don't remember the last time I saw this much snow piled on the streets. And to add insult to injury, the temperature has not gone above zero in I am not sure how many days. Boy, is it going to be a loooooong winter.

I know, I know...I can move. But really, we all know I am not going to do that. I have lived here my whole life(except for the 3 years my family lived in Montana), not likely that I will leave. :)

Too bad we didn't take our vacation this week instead of coming home just before this all hit.

One more before I attempt to pack

This is "You know it is Christmas time when..."

You know it is Christmas time when the infamous "leg lamp" from A Christmas Story is up in a front window on Washington Street. :)

Vacation Time!

I just started this and now I have to leave it for a week or so. We are headed on a fun-filled family vacation tomorrow. We will be back next week and I am sure I will have quite a few stories to share.

I am rushing around like a chicken with my head cut off today. (And believe me, I have been to a farm on butchering day) :) I just want to be sure that we have everything we need. The weather is sort of iffy so packing is kind of hard. We will just have to make do with what we have.

Our plane leaves at 4:32am. May the Good Lord help us all!!
