Mondays are always hard... but something about Monday in January after the holidays and in the winter is just so awful. I woke up to a house at 57 degrees (we're anti-heat and air conditioning), so that made it even worse... I'm thinking we should at least set the heat at 60.
If it wasn't for the hot pot of coffee brewing, I might not have gotten out of bed. I decided to try out this new coffee my mom sent me. It's a Fair Trade, Organic coffee. I'm assuming she got this kind because I'm the middle sister, but also because it's a dark blend. The coffee was fantastic! Just what I needed. Belle thought she needed some too...

Today was one of those days at work.... it was month end AND year end, which in the accounting world is no fun at all. It was really busy, full of hunting down numbers, finding out where they should be and where they were put... not fun! Since I just started in September, I still feel like I'm getting the hang of how things work, so it was quite a challenge. However, I do feel like I learned a lot (the hard way) and will be in a much better position to check myself at the end of each month and year. I guess it's all a learning curve. I take criticism really hard, and don't like to be wrong, so a few times I thought I was going to burst out in tears... but that's life. And it's all part of being a grown up.
When I got home, JJ told me the car battery had died because I left my iPod charger in the car all weekend. Seriously, between the charger and the Nike+ issues, I'm feeling like technology is turning on me!
We jumped my car off his, let it run for a while, got gas and ran an errand. By the time we were home and I made dinner, it was 8pm. I had intended on doing strength training, but I think I'm fried for the day both mentally and physically.
Tomorrow though, I am going to do No More Trouble Zones... which means I'm sure to have a sore butt and legs Wednesday! But it's a good sore.
So last week JJ got something VERY exciting in the mail, his Big 10 Championship ring!!!
Well I'm off to clean the kitchen and head to bed. Tomorrow is a very exciting day in my little world... I hope to get many awesome photos (if JJ's willing to oblige) of our big day!
