I'm awake now!

Usually I pour myself a really big mug of coffee and fire up the computer to read some blogs. Granted, it’s not my sharpest time of the day. But I almost had a heart attack when I started reading this blog post at Writeminded.

Then I read it again. :lmao:

:woot: Good way to start the day!

Red Sox tickets go on sale in 29 minutes.

The short kid’s been invited to a birthday party this afternoon.

And it’s fifty freakin’ degrees. (I keep waiting for a crocus to sprout between the snowmobile’s skis.)

And Wednesday is the day I get to dump this steaming heap of company paperwork into the lap of the accountant. So…hopefully Thursday will see the official beginning of my new year. :lmao: Did y’all know the deadline for having 1099’s to recipients is 1/31? I didn’t. Thought it was 2/28. Yesterday? Not a good day. But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now.

*braces for the train impact*

    Hehe, that was a mean trick to start a review. :whip:

    But all turned out well in the end, like a good romance should. :cheer:

    I can live til Wednesday.

    I’m like the little engine that could—I think I can, I think I can…
