Excluding the last 3 days of the month, February 2009 will go down in our books as the worst month EVER!! There is much to say about this month, but without clearing it with Richard, I'll keep it generic.
1) Death = suckage... even if you know it's coming.
2) Kitty surgery = no fun on any day... 1 week after #1 above = even worse. Throw in 1am complications, emergency vet trip and Sara traveling == super suckage.
3) Busy Season - as icing on the cake - when I've been in town, its at least an 11 hour working day (no commute time included). By the time I get home, its not worth a trip to B-town for Richard as I'll just fall asleep. But I was only in town for 2 weeks. The other 2 -- leave mid Sunday, travel to east coast, work long hours all week, minimal alone time, and then come home LATE LATE Friday night. So I can officially say - WAY TO GO MOM!! I don't know how you do it every week and manage to still be nice to everyone.
4) HOME -- the good of the month! We bought a house yesterday :) And couldn't be happier about it. Super stressful along the way and we still have more to accomplish with moving and decorating - but it's ours. Yay us!!!
So I'll try not to kick February out the door too fast, but I'm more than ready for this month to end.
Welcome March.... and for me, that also means Pueblo, CO - here I come.
