It’s a blustery day outside our cottage. Thank goodness there is no ice or snow visiting us right now! Some of my blogging friends have gotten clobbered with snow lately and my heart goes out to them.
I now have three very busy weeks of work behind me. It seems like a LOT longer! It’s frustrating that I haven’t seemed to make much a dent in the assigned work. I’m also having problems adjusting to the lack of time for personal endeavors. I’m hoping to catch my stride soon. There isn’t going to be any let-up in the level and intensity of this particular contract, unlike the last one. I am preparing myself for an endurance marathon into a blustery headwind! While I was in Chattanooga last week, I finally got to meet everyone in the work group. Everyone is really nice, so that’s a plus. I should get my first paycheck this next week too. I’ll feel better after I hear that initial kerplunk sound in the checking account. OK then, onward!
We are in the process of finishing up plans for the “on-our-own” time during the July trip to Alaska. Making the tour reservations was the easy part! The decisions for self-touring activities and lodging are a bit daunting. It was happy news when hubby was able to pay for our flight reservations with frequent flyer miles. He got that task done just in the nick of time. It was surprising how few open spots were left for a trip that is a more than five months away!
We’re seriously thinking about getting an iPad this spring when the new generation rolls off the production line. We’d love to leave our big HP laptop home and take something lighter on our traveling adventures. So if any of you out there in blogland have an iPad, I would love to hear which model you got, how well you like it, and your favorite apps.
