DOWN AND UP

I hate saying goodbye to my mom. No matter how long the visit is, it's never long enough.

We don't have any more snow but it sure is cold here. It's extra cold in my office and I've had to ask building maintenance to please come and take a look at the ventilation system, since despite the fact that I've turned the heat up as high as it will go, there are still arctic blasts of chill in the room. It feels as though my hands are feet are permanently frozen—from the inside-out. It gets worse all day as I work until I can hardly type and my hands are only just thawing out after a night in bed under blankets before it's time to start the whole chilly process over again. sigh

It's the second week of January and work is already building to a crescendo that I suspect will last until June. There are a lot of fun projects underway which is nice but the sheer volume of work has me staggering a bit just thinking about it.

Anders is in the final planning stages with his two friends for the annual Father/Child Ski Trip at the end of this month. I'm looking forward to my annual "week off" even though I'll be working during it. :)

A good pun is like a good steak
A rare medium well done

I do not have words for how badly I desire a long massage, sushi, and a good night's sleep. In any order.
