Well, yesterday was my first day back in the office. ... & I survived. Now, ask me how I'm doing around Thursday & we'll see.
I woke up anxious about the day early so the alarm didn't bother me yesterday.... but I can tell its going to get REALLY old.... REALLY FAST. I know I said to myself at least a half dozen times while I was getting ready, "I should still be sleeping" - #truth
I went into Monday after a fun weekend. We got to see my in-laws - a group of people we havent seen all together since December 2019!!! Crazy!
We had the perfect reason to get together too - a surprise for my mother in law for her 80th birthday!!!
It was funny because we all had gotten there & decorated & were "hiding" in the back - but got to talking about COVID & the vaccine .... & then all of a sudden, she's standing at the door & said, "WHAT IS HAPPENING?" HAHA - she was so shocked - but she actually surprised us. We didnt hear the alarm to tell us she was there. A double surprise win.

She had no idea we were doing this get together & she missed having us all together for so long... I think it was a great surprise for her - & that it landed exactly on her birthday was just perfect.
|I love this picture of her as a little girl
I asked her what her favorite "age" was... what sort of age range was the best. She said her 50's-60's were probably her favorite - which made this 49 1/2 year old gal feel really encouraged & hopeful.
Maggie is just full of life - she said her secret is she never stops moving... & I think that really is part of the answer to the secret of a great long life. Just keep moving. We have no doubt she's going to be moving for quite a long time & we'll be seeing her in 20 years at her 100th birthday. Maybe she'll slow down a little bit then.
Other highlights of the weekend:
* Went to see my mom - she's still doing really well in the rehab she's in. I really think her being allowed visitors is helpful.
* I started watching the show Travelers on Netflix & am really into it!!!!
* While we were out in the area for my MIL's party, we drove out to see my grandparents resting place. I havent been out that far in awhile & I forgot how beautiful their monument was.
* I got my office space in my house that I worked out of for the past year & a half all cleaned out... shredding papers & dragging out to the garbage - it took me on & off all weekend & it ended up being nearly 6 bags of garbage!!! My room looks so BIG now with all the paper out of it. I really need to get in there & organize it. It's been so many things through the years - knitting, photography, Beauty & the Beast, & planner stuff... now its ALL that... all combined in areas. I need to get it organized more. Clear out some of the stuff.... let me add this to the list of things to do.
So how was your weekend?
... & your Monday since I'm a day behind!
