I won?

I'm still double checking that it is really true. I won a giveaway from the very fabulous and morning sickness inflicted Crystal. Poor girl, hope you start to feel better soon. I missed my friend Nilsa. She is back from vacay but now is sick with a nasty cold. :-( My family had very nice birthday celebrations for me this weekend. Some Joanne gift cards mean I can now buy that self healing cutting board and rotary cutter I've been wanting for some time now. I also got a print from Swallowfield and a hammock from Jason and the kids!! A hammock is something I've always wanted. Unfortunately some parts are missing so we can't use it yet. They should be in soon though. Can't wait.

Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the cubicle. At first I was not in a mood to celebrate this day. I never cared for having a cubicle at work. The times I needed to buckle down and read or write and really concentrate at work, interuptions like conversations, social meetings around the goodies on Friday, loud music and many visits from bosses and coworkers made it nearly impossible. On the other hand, they probably made it possible to hire more people for less, encourage open communication, keep you in the loop and make it easy to get to your (in my case) bench space.

The news yesterday reported of terror and sadness in Istanbul. Two bombs. This really hit home for me as one of my best friends who lives in Dallas is married to a Turkish man who is from Istanbul and still has a mother who lives there.

The kids have been particularly challenging yesterday and this morning. I will be ready to drop them off at the YMCA child care so I can have an hour or so of peaceful workout time this morning.

I had our air ducts cleaned out and sanitized yesterday. Hopefully this will help with my indoor allergies.

The house is shaping up as I am getting more cleaning and organizing done. The main eyesore now is the basement. Not really looking forward to cleaning that!

I'm so glad to be back. Though, I'm drowning playing catch up now! Sorry I missed your birthday - I had it written down, but was without communication while at the beach. Happy belated day!
