Domo Arigatoo, Mr. Toddboto

Life has been insane lately. I have been very neglectful of the blog. I've been working my crazy little head off lately, and am barely home. And when I am home, it's just to eat something, shower, sleep a bit, and then go right back to work.

I've been warned about the busy season at work, and it has hit with a vengeance. Lately I've been leaving for work before the sun is fully risen, and have been leaving well after it's set again. I am chained to my computer, barely leaving it long enough to retrieve a print out, or use the ladies room, or even to get a bite to eat. I understand it will continue at this pace until December.

Heaven help me.

But it's all good. I like what I do, probably for the first time in my career. I am having fun with it, and really it could be heaps worse. I could still be working for a past employer that I have come to refer to as the spawn of the devil. Instead I am working with some really cool people who stop what they are doing several times a day to exercise in the common area outside of our desks, and have roped me in to exercise with them. Yes, we have been dropping F-bombs to the point where we're considering installing a swear barrel instead of a swear jar. But at least we stop to lob a few nerf balls at each other to burn off some stress as well.

Todd, of course, has been the ridiculously supportive husband as I hack my way through my insane work schedule. He calls me at work to make me laugh, sends me funny little emails, and then he drew a picture for me last week so that I would see it when I was walking into the garage to flop into my car and switch on the auto-pilot that would take me to work. (Auto pilot=the muscle memory that steers the car to my place of employment, so that my brain will entirely disengage and I will arrive at work with no recollection of having driven there.)

This picture has had me laughing for days now.

We have a little magna-doodle thingy hanging on the door that leads out to the garage. This little $4 gadget from Target has provided us with endless entertainment for months now. We leave little notes and little pictures on it for each other to see every single day of the week. I haven't had the heart to erase this one yet, because it's been cracking me up every time I look at it.
Domo arigatoo, Mr. Toddboto. It's little things like this that make me so happy that I married you.

Too cute!

I love morning notes. Right now we are in Bill's insanely busy season... dude, the alarm was set for 3-something one day last week... and so the notes are dwindling. You've just reminded me that I need to sneak downstairs after he falls asleep tonight to leave him one for the morning.

Sweet! I love the little notes. And I think we have three magna doodles around here. Two for Kbug and one for us and I absolutely love it!

OMG you guys! He made me a salad for dinner last night and sliced the tip of his finger as he was cutting up the carrots. I feel *so* badly about it. Here he was being awesome and preparing dinner, and then he gets injured over it. Gah!

What a sweet, hillarious thing to have! (Sorry about the carrot injury. Like Homer & Bart Simpson say, "You don't win friends with salad! You don't win friends with salad! So true.)

What a cute idea! I think little notes like that are pretty important in the big scheme of life.
