A few things I should tell you

My mother in law found $100 bill in a snow bank on the side of the road a week after Christmas.

She gave it to us and we put it in the checking account.

Pretty cool, eh?

My job is very stressful this month. For the first time I am doing end of the year, and quarterly reports and there are lots of them. I am nervous about them and sometimes I sit and look at a question for a really long time and kind of zone out. It's probably taking four times as long as it needs to take.

Part of my job is pestering other people about giving me the things I need to do my job. I do not like to pester, confront, bother, interrupt, or otherwise interfere with other people. This whole asking people for things is a challenge for me. I am comfortable asking other people for help, though.

My son scored 13 points in his basketball game yesterday. He is absolutely blooming into this confident, awesome person. I love it. He is also getting peach fuzz, so I rub his face whenever I can so I will remember the smoothness of it when he is a stubbly-faced man. He just takes it, which is another thing I love about him.

I was invited to lunch with some ladies at work and I feel more at home there now. It's nice to make some friends.

My husband is awesome. He keeps cleaning the kitchen after I go to bed and it's so nice to wake up to an empty sink.

The minute Christmas is over, I am ready for spring. Even though I know that there is really a full season of winter to come.

I have knitted a whole lot of wrist warmers this season, but I haven't posted any pictures! I need to do that. I keep giving them away before I get the camera out.

That's about it. My life is full of work and basketball games and family stuff.

Here is a quote I will leave you with today that I like:

Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the common place, the slaves of the ordinary. - Cecil Beaton

Could you possibly bribe people with chocolate, to get the info you need for end of the year reports?

Enjoy the peach fuzz. My son now enjoys rubbing his scruffy face on my cheeks!

Wow, your son sounds like a champ--so does your husband. Good luck making your job work for you. I know what you mean about comfort zones.
