Missing someone is a really good feeling.

Moving Along

Needless to say, i've been running at full speed for the past couple weeks, and it has started to catch up with me. I believe the proper term would be 'burnt out.' Feeling a little down and homesick, my Dad came to visit me yesterday before he embarks on a week long trip to visit his brother. Even though at some points throughout the day I was having a hard time keeping my eyes open, he told me that he hasn't seen me this happy in a long time, and I would have to agree with him. Making progress at work, sunshine and some special people in my life are making all the stress accompanied by rebuilding a store just something in the background.

I am so looking forward to this summer.

Vitamin D

What a great weekend!

Friday night I went out to First Friday's for the first time with Carley, Travis, and Dashley. It definitely comforted me to find that Richmond still has a very vibrant art scene. My everyday life is lacking in the arts (other than music), so being reminded about what Richmond is all about made me a little more proud of our city. We went to the senior photography art show, which was very impressive! One of the seniors had done a series on ordinary objects that she held on to after her father passed away, and how much more they meant after they are gone. Let's just say I related a little too closely; art has never hit me so hard.

Work on Saturday was slow moving, but it was worth it, because the store ended 112% to budget and complete! Which means we may have won a district wide competition= we get cupcakes! Woohoo! I got to train and push some of my newbies and they ended up showing me what they were made of, proud boss lady moment.

Sunday was my day off, and it was one of the best i've had in a while! Woke up early, went and ran some errands, then went out for tea, which lead to adventures to the river, soaking up some vitamin D, listening to music, and hang outs. My cheeks still ache this morning, not because of the sun either.

This week has gotten off to a great start, and I have much to look forward to, starting with my tattoo on Wednesday!
