The laboratory supervisors got our schedule for next year, which includes our weekend rotations of regular holidays and weekends. It showed me on Christmas PM shift, in 2019. And that made me stop and think…where will I be in 2019?
I don’t plan to be here in the Chicagoland area. As much as I love the city, the taxes kill us, and I am ready for a less stressful life filled with downsizing and beaches. Miami/Ft. Lauderdale is on our radar, but who knows, right?
But let’s talk today…shall we?
Today I realized that even after 24 years of doing my job, I still can kick butt as a bench technician rockin’ out the work like a mad woman.
Today I realized that my little girl, isn’t so little anymore as she asked me, “Mommy, when will I get under arm hair?” Ack. #notready
Today despite another sleepless night, I realized I am stronger than I think as I rocked out my 5k/5 minute plank after a crazy day at work. (see above)
Today I realized that it’s only December 9th, and I’m ahead of the game with package wrapping. Does anyone else feel like it’s double Christmas when 99.9% of your shopping is done online? I love opening all the packages, LOL!!!
Today I realized that while wrapping, and shopping on said Amazon Prime, that I had left over Cooper’s Hawk wine that my sister brought over for Thanksgiving!! What is leftover wine you ask? I can hardly answer that question, ROFL!!!!
Today I was reminded of how much my Dad loves me. I received this gift of two handmade ornaments and a hand carved rolling pin. All. The. Tears. We don’t see each other very often, but the love is so evident. I even got to talk to him on the phone tonight, thanking him graciously for such a heartfelt gift.
Today I spoiled myself with a beautiful gown that I will wear next weekend when we are in Chicago. I most certainly will feel like a princess. Wouldn’t you?
And lastly, today, I was reminded by my husband that although he is gone a lot, he thinks of us all the time and loves us very much. And that my friends, is a wrap.
How was your day today? Do you ever wonder where you will be in a few years?
