It's amazing what a good night's sleep will do...  
Last night I fell asleep at the unGodly hour of 8pm and didn't wake up this morning until 6am. Usually I'd be pretty upset that I wasted all that time, but in this case, I think must've done me a world of good because I feel a hundred times better this morning than I have all week.

Part of the reason I think I feel so good might have to do with the fact that it's FINALLY April 16th - which has to be the BEST day of the year for everyone who works in my back office. :D Last week we fielded over 1,500 calls and took in over 1,000 trades (all of which I had to review - my brain is now completely mush!) :P Next week when we finally get back in to our regular non-tax production mode we'll probably see half of that... all in all it'll be a much more pleasant work week next week and I couldn't be happier. :)

There was so much stress this past week in our office that everyone was literally losing it. At this time last year, we were all calling each other by the wrong names :P, and this year it seemed that by Friday, no one was making any sense. :P My sales manager told me yesterday, "Don't close the computer - I still have to put my vault in there!" :P I think we all really needed this weekend!

On a completely different (but really wonderful) theatre note, I was actually able to convince Mark to go on a weekend trip with me in September to see Kevin perform with the California Philharmonic. :) It'll be so great since this will probably be the only trip that he and I will be able to take together this year. I'm pretty excited about it. :)

I have no plans for today - I'm just going to spend time with Mark & Sydney and take some time to re-charge my batteries. Tomorrow I'll get going on the housework and packing for my trip. :) Hope you all have a nice Saturday! :) I'm off to harrass the fuzzy dog. ;)

How great...now that the office stress is over doesn't it feel like a large weight has been lifted off of your shoulders?

I'll feel that way when this semester is over. LOL

Give Syd a big hug for me! :o)

Yes, totally! Thanks, Stacey! :) And how wonderful for you now that your semester is over! Woo hoo!

And you're so sweet! I will most definitely give Sydney a big *HUG* for you! :)

It was a lot of sleep! :P I usually don't need that much, but I think I might've needed it. :) I almost feel ready to go back to work on Monday. ;)

I'm glad you got the sleep you needed.

Sometimes, no plans are always the best plans. :D

No plans this weekend was just what I needed! :) I admit that I get bored easily when I have nothing much planned, but I think that today was the exception. :)

It was so wonderful to finally catch up on all my sleep - I must've really needed it. :) And I leave in just 5 days! Woo hoo! :D
