Hurrah for a Friday, the last workday before my week off!

     Looks like today is the wrap-up of the snow/sleet/rain/ice fest that started on Tuesday. Glad we didn't get as much snow as forecasted, but it's really hard to look outside and believe it's April 12!

     Made great progress on the evenings with clearing all of the empty boxes & packing material mess out of my guestroom, in preparation for the furniture that will start arriving next week. Shado had a blast keeping me company and trying to get into everything.

     A surprise yesterday. Someone in Annuities nominated me for a Torchbearer Award, and I had no clue it was a big deal until my boss came over all excited, then had a big meeting to explain it, then I got a certificate to hang up...and then they all pitched in and got me flowers! I haven't gotten flowers in ages: pink and yellow lilies, cream snapdragons, carnations, irises, and best of all, pussy willows! That was quite a treat.

Very kind! =)
And yes, I managed to get them home without messing them up too much. Hopefully Shado will not get them on top of the fridge.

Re: Yay!!
Just having a full weekend off feels like such a treat, a week will be amazing!

Thanks! Somebody in Annuities nominated me for my help, and the Torchbearer Committee must have thought I merited it. Yes, it's because of all those crazy hours. At least I get some flowers out of it. ;)
