Mondays are always tough. No matter what’s up in my life Monday is my least favorite morning, especially when I have to wake up at 6:30AM. Weekends fly by too quickly.
It’s pretty strange working in a temp position where I’m filling in for someone else. There are many reasons- her shoes under the desk for one, but mostly it is strange to be in a situation where people are always walking into the office expecting/hoping to see someone else. It’s the constant look of disappointment on people’s faces. It’s not because they see me, but because they don’t see her, but it can sort of take it’s toll after 3 weeks….and counting. It sounds like she’s been here for years, so of course it must be odd to not have her around.
I am thankful to be working, and to be working in such a great office of people working hard to do really great things in the community. I am reminded how nice it is to be in a “permanent” position though, where people know you and expect to see you when they walk over to your desk. 😉
This weekend was: Trevor’s birthday party, movies at Raef & Danelle’s, getting stuff done around the house, and friends over for The Oscars. The Oscars were pretty predictable and boring. There were a few highlights but nothing was all that awesome. Trev and I saw all ten of the nominees for Best Picture, and were happy with The King’s Speech winning. Since we got married we’ve seen most of the best picture nominees each year, but we have seen all of them the past three years in a row, and the past two have had 10 nominees! I’m not sure how long we’ll be able to keep this up, but I have really enjoyed seeing all of these movies.
Today is the last day of February, a month full of birthdays, our anniversary, Valentine’s Day, The Oscars. March looks pretty boring in comparison!
