First of all, THANK YOU, Dear Readers, for your congratulatory words!!! Your kind thoughts and well wishes mean SO much to me. I’m so proud and thankful to have such kind-hearted blogger friends!!!
Needless to say, it has been quite a celebration in our household for the past few days… After landing on my flight back to NYC (more on the Dallas trip soon, it was *beyond* fun and eventful!!), I walked to baggage claim and was surprised by a familiar face- Mr. Wonderful had traveled all the way to the airport to surprise and congratulate me! He was standing at the baggage carousel, an ear-to-ear smile on his face and a bottle of Veuve in his hand. Beyond adorable. We headed home, and went out to a celebratory sushi dinner.
The next morning, I woke up to the smell of breakfast… Mr. W snuck out of the house while I was still asleep, and ran to the corner store for my favorite breakfast sandwich. He surprised me (again!) with breakfast and bellinis in bed. Ladies, I almost died *right there* and went straight to Heaven. I can’t tell you how great this man is to me! We rounded out the celebration weekend by ordering the HBO channel for our apartment (SUCH an extravagance for us!), and catching up on one of our favorite shows- Big Love (HIGHLY recommend it!!!).
It dawned on me today, in the middle of room cleaning and laundry folding, that these were my last few days at home full-time! I’m both elated and nervous at the prospect of rejoining Corporate America. I’ve gotten into such a great routine over the last 5 months, I have an irrational fear that I’ll never cook a decent meal or have the laundry done on time again! It feels like the first day of school, all over again!
Here’s where you come in, Dear Reader! I would love for you all to share some of your favorite time-management skills!
What helps you manage your career/household /schoolwork/volunteer/church time? I’m talking cleaning schedules, meal planning, packing your lunch the night before work… ANY suggestions would be *greatly* appreciated! Nothing beats a case of the nerves like feeling 100% prepared beforehand… Please help me get there!
