Spring Fling, Cleaning, and Other Ramblings...

The time has come. Yes, that's right. The time has come for me to return back to the working world. I've SO enjoyed my time off though. Tomorrow will be my first day at First American. I'm excited that I've been hired on with the company I wanted to be with, and I'm UBER excited about them relocating to the Solana Club. Once that happens, my commute will be less than 5 minutes (give or take a few for lights, etc). Can't wait for that to happen. Seriously. Can't wait. I know I won't get much sleep tonight. It's the first day of school feeling, only... it's work. Strange.

I knew I would be going back to work fairly quickly, and have been a productive bunny this week. Every possible stitch of laundry has been done. The living room has been cleaned. The kitchen has been cleaned (well except for the floor, for some reason it just doesn't get done). Both bathrooms have been cleaned. Tonight I cooked up a HONKIN' big dinner (well, I do special dinners every Sunday, but today was a LOT bigger than normal). Our menu included:

Orange Chicken Kiev
Wild Rice Medley
Steamed Spaghetti Squash (a personal favorite)
Honey-Oat Wheat Rolls (a new recipe for me)
and for Steve.... Homemade Southern Banana Pudding.

Overall, it was mighty tasty!

I also spent time this weekend going through my closet. It's interesting, green hasn't ever been one of my favorite colors, but I have more green t-shirts than any other color (except for white, but that's a basic standard shirt...). SO wierd for me. I don't even have a red one, and that's been my favorite color for YEARS. Oh well, as if I needed another reason for clothes shopping.

SO excited! Paper Bella released kit #4. Yep, already purchased it. YEAH for eBay money! I have seriously NEVER been dissapointed with a kit or purchase from Paper Bella. In fact, I CAN'T wait for it to get here! I'm SO excited! I'd share my projects with the other kits, but for some reason I can't get my camera and computer to communicate today. I'll have to look at it tommorrow afternoon. I have to get to bed so I'm refreshed for tommorrow morning! :)

Have a fantastic day!
