It's Finally OVER!

Well I am finally done! We filed late Tuesday afternoon. I have not felt so relieved in my whole life! Yesterday was the company-wide annual awards luncheon, so the day was pretty much shot, which was a nice break from the non-stop work days I've been having for the past two months.

I’m so relieved! However, I am still dreaming about work, which really needs to stop! But I’m back to my normal hours, and I don’t have to worry about getting to my daughter’s gymnastics or having to cancel any evening plans.

Last night we had our good friends over for dinner. I haven’t seen them since Christmas (and what’s even sadder is that they live two doors down from us). It was a fantastic dinner and it was so good to catch up! The kids all played great together, which was nice because it let us really catch up.

The kids have been doing OK in daycare, but the mornings are just way too tough. We have found a nanny, and she is set to start on the 17th, so only one more week of daycare and the kids can be back in their own house! It will be sad because the staff at their daycare is so nice, and always makes me feel so comfortable when I drop them off each morning. But it will be nice to going back to not having to get them up and dressed and dropping them off. Yesterday I was up for 2 ½ hours before I got to work!

This weekend we’re heading up to Michigan to visit my sister. I haven’t seen her since Christmas and I’ve never seen her apartment, so I’m really looking forward to it. It will just be good to have a completely and totally work-free weekend (not even any guilt about not working) again.

And I can’t wait to catch up on all of your blogs! I feel like I have been missing out on so much! I’ve really missed all of you!
