Huzzah - beley's almost back!

Yup. dear, dear beley's moving back to DC. I believe he gets here tomorrow. I don't expect to hear from him for a few days (am not sure where he's staying and he's got a cast of thousands thrilled to have him finally back on this coast) but looking very forward to seeing him. In my pre-grad-school DC days beley was a huge part - we hung out quite a bit, I dated a bunch of his friends, etc. He's like a brother, but without the family baggage. And he's utterly completely fabulous (a compliment I don't throw around lightly). So hooray and can't wait to see you, babe!

blossoms galore

The rest of life hasn't been quite so hurrah.

Mostly have been busy at work. There are four big projects I'm working on, plus heading and coming up with discussion topics and materials for a division-wide user group. The meetings alone are a lot of time, then this week I had the chance to hear a presentation over at AARP on designing for older users (was really good) which meant I spent even less time in the office. From the time I walk in until I leave I barely have time to think - in some ways it's great because I need deadlines to get things done, but sometimes it takes me a little bit (like half a cup of coffee) in the morning just to wrap my mind around everything I've got to do.

Otherwise? Have been a bad daughter and only in the last couple of days have returned my parents phone calls. Was getting home late (out for dinner and/or drinks with SS the SS, Marie, Carrie, etc) but even on the nights I came home earlier I just didn't want to talk to anyone. The cold weather has really been getting to me, after the mountains of snow and cold and wind I just can't wait for spring.

a m. just a m

Doing (life and related tasks): Crazy busy at work. Doing some laundry tonight. Should be cleaning my apartment as it looks like the kind of mess that takes weeks (instead of days) to develop.

Doing (crafty stuff): Working on some knitting.

Wanting: To figure out how to turn the radiator off in the living room. And a bookshelf because the placing-my-stereo-on-top-of-a-pile-of-books look is getting old.

Anticipating: Hopefully seeing HK this weekend (she'll be in town). And the usual, entirely good round of boy and friend plans.

last one everything else what I'm working on on to the dailies all (well some) about me back to the index page next one
