Wowee! I feel like I’ve had an incredibly busy month and I’m ready to flop into bed and not wake up until Christmas (just set up my tree for me and leave my presents underneath Santa. Thanks!). My Younger Sister came back from Japan last month but she’s ready to jet off back again for work. So the past month has been about spending as much time with her as possible and eating all the yummy things we said we would. Work has also been hectic with our team temporarily down two social workers and a sudden influx of clients, so the reamining three of us are holding down the fort as best we can. I’ve also been working on sprucing up this old house and have been on a few dates inbetween. Most people might say this constant running around is just normal life, but I’m going to say that this isn’t for me and I may need to consider some sort of Spring-time hibernation.
