Working from home

I am grateful for having the work flexibility to work from home when my mom, who normally watches Cassidy a few days a week, is on vacation. Working from home is hard though. Luckily my husband also worked from home today so we can tag team Cassidy however I had many conference calls so he is bearing an unfair burden.
so I guess I'm also grateful to have an awesome husband!

I'm grumpy today. It's hard to find anything good to say about the day. I worked, I picked up Cassidy who was also grumpy and very tired. I guess it's just a Monday.
Oh! There is a good thing about today - one day closer to the weekend! WooHoo!

Holding hands

Cassidy is starting to walk, with us holding her hands. We'll be sitting on the floor playing and she'll pull herself to standing and reach for your hand, grasp it tight and take off. Its the sweetest thing.

My sister came over today to help me make pinwheels for Cassidy's birthday party. Decoration only since they don't spin :-(  It was fun even with all the fingers stuck with tacks!

Today I am grateful for talented pilots and the safety of flying. I fly pretty regularly for work and never thought much about dying. Now that I'm a mom it crosses my mind. Today I flew to Washington, DC and back to attend a meeting and I'm happy that we made it safely.

Its nice having soft feet

My sister and I don't see each other often and even less often by ourselves but for the last few years we go out for pedicures for our birthdays. It's expensive but a nice hour together with resulting soft feet.

When Cassidy was done in her bath tonight she stood up by the side and tried to crawl into my arms. All naked and wet and adorable.

Time flies

I just sat with Cassidy giving her a bottle before bed, thinking about how few of these are left since she'll be turning one in a few weeks and we'll be getting rid of bottle. She's grown so much and is already so independant. She took the bottle from me tonight to hold it herself :-)  My girl is growing up.

almost spring in New England

Went for a walk with hubby, Jake (dog) and Cassidy today to the office park around the corner. It was a brisk 45 degrees but sunny. It was so nice to enjoy some fresh air. Spring is right around the corner! Yippee!

I stink at blogging - so I'll try to do it everyday

Well I stink at blogging. So in honor of my (gasp) 39th birthday I'm changing it up. I'm going to post a short (1 sentence?) post every day!  of what I'm grateful for. or want to remember from the day. or something. and yes, I got this idea from the book the Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin.

so... for yesterday because I have something good.

My husband took me into Boston for dinner & a comedy show for my birthday. It was a funny show and I love where we went to dinner.  What I really loved about it was that we get to the city so infrequently, and it was a warmish night, it was just nice to walk around holding hands & laughing.
