First and foremost, work has been crazy. It's just that time of year for us where 2011 budgets need to be finalized and 2010 books need to be closed. Even though I am a Mommy, I have to play an Accountant 3 days of the week and I have been working non stop. I have also been putting in several hours on my supposed "days off" by logging in from home and knocking down a few monthly reports during nap time. Nap time is usually my me time where I can clean the house, workout, shower, read blogs or create a blog post. Well, none of these things have been getting done and I am now living in a dirty house and it's driving me crazy!
Our personal life has been crazy busy too lately which is a good thing. Jeff and I actually traveled to a casino in New York this weekend and spent our first night away from Jillian. This was a huge step for us but we really enjoyed our time together!!! We were celebrating our 10 year dating anniversary and thought what better time than now to get away for a night. When Jeff and I were dating, we used to travel to New York this time of year to celebrate our dating anniversaries. We used to be active skiers and would spend a romantic weekend at either Holiday Valley or Peak and Peek. Both places are ski resorts nestled into small towns in western New York. I can't even tell you the last time that we have skied, however, it was nice to go back visit this area of New York and play a little black jack together!!! We almost didn't make it out there on Saturday, our drive to New York was white knuckle all of the way. Snow continuously came down and covered the road ways, piling up more and more as we drove. There were spin outs all around us. One would think that we were a little nuts driving in such nasty weather but we were determined to get away for the night.
I took a picture of our drive, we could barely get the snow off the windshield, it just kept coming down!

Even though I had plenty to catch up on at home this week, my sister is only going to be on maternity leave for a few more weeks so Jillian and I decided to spend my day off this week visiting my sister. Jillian LOVES playing with her cousin Nicole and actually got to experience coloring in a coloring book for the first time. Jillian has been very interested in writing lately and is always stealing pens out of my hands. I am sure she sees me constantly crunching numbers at home when I am working so she obviously wants to do the same!!!
After being away for the weekend and working on my days off, you can see how we are a bit out of our routine!!!!! Hopefully we will get back into the swing of things again soon.
