Weekly Update

This week’s update is brought to you by the letter Q and the number OU812.

Long time readers haven’t heard and intro like that in a while.

I couldn’t think of a better title and frankly this is a weekly wrap-up.

Monday we celebrated a household holiday. ?February 1st. ?We don’t do anything special. ?Mostly we acknowledge that January is now over and we can go about our “normal” lives.

Tuesday was fairly uneventful. ?I considered going grocery shopping, but later thought against it. ?I also contemplated the meaning of clean laundry and not turning my underpants inside out. ?That motion failed since I had to take the dog to the vet and had a meeting at work at 6:30. ?In other news, the dog now weighs 32 pounds and (except for the spay surgery) we don’t have to take her back until next year. ?That will save us some money.

Wednesday life pretty much fell apart. ?I found out that I will potentially lose the office I so painstakingly painted and did so with my own money. ?I loved my little office. ?I will now have to move to a bigger office that I will share with someone who might actually be there at the same time as me as opposed to my lovely little pretty office that I would have to share, but my co-worker wouldn’t be there at the same time. ?I’m very sad about it. ?I painted it with my own money. ?I had photos ordered for the walls. ?I had a beautiful chair for visitors. ?It was mine and I’ve waited 5 years for it. ?Now I will have to move to an office that is ugly green and yellow, I might have a desk that isn’t made for someone working on a laptop and a chair made out of naugahyde. ?Yes, it’s bigger, but I don’t want to move.

Wednesday also brought some other challenges, but I don’t want to go into that, I’m just trying to fix it. ?Let’s just say that it makes my losing my office problem very trivial.

Thursday the trusty husband and I spent the day fixing aforementioned problem. ?We also spent the afternoon constantly checking facebook for an update on our friend Jenny who went into labor at 2:00 a.m. ?You know me, I don’t get overly excited about babies (that whole I can’t have one thing), but I am quite excited about this one. ?Mainly because I know Jenny is so ready to be not pregnant anymore.

Today is all about candy. ?I have 5 slabs of caramels to make and 180 truffles to coat. ?I thought I was done with candy right about Christmas, but our China mission group at church did Sweet Hope for a fundraiser. ?I’ve whipped out about 600 truffles in 4 days (sans chocolate fridge).

Now did I meet my 5 mile walking goal as part of my 101 in 1001? ?Um yeah, no. ?I’ve been so tired from chocolate making that it didn’t work. ?I still have 2 days though…

    thanks for the peek inside. I love the weekly update.

    Way to go on the candies, you really do put your heart and soul into this and it shows.

    Have a great weekend, I hope that pesky issue, whatever it is, levels out and you can get past it.

    Thinking of you with lots of love, will give you a call to check in soon. Thanks for keeping us updates, and I’m VERY sorry about the office thing. Totally sucks. If you need us to take back the chair, to take a chore off your hands, we are happy to do so. But it’s yours if you can still use it!
