Back To The Grind

The first day back at work wasn't too bad...except for the getting up at 6AM part. Plus my latest dog hasn't exactly figured out what the dog door is for so there was some unpleasant clean-up at 3AM.

I checked my mortgage spreadsheet and found that with no extra payments I can still pay it off by December. Finally it is down to only 1 year. Of course I am going to try for the 3 month plan. That is much more fun.

My coworkers were all shocked that I didn't do more sight-seeing in Washington DC. But I went there to visit family not see the sights. I am perfectly happy with the 2 places that we visited. Here is a picture of one of my favorite exhibits at the Smithsonian...Muppets! I also liked Dorothy's ruby slippers, Dale Earnhardt's helmet and C3PO.

It rained while I was travelling so I was able to do a big load of laundry. It is so great to have clean clothes after trying to extend their wear for so long. And I was even able to wash the bed linens. I do have 3 sets of sheets which is great when I can't do laundry right away. I can still have clean sheets.

Tomorrow is only Tuesday but at least there are only 4 more days until the weekend! I am looking forward to it. Unfortunately it is double booked already but that just means I am never bored.

Thanks Sallie, I can feel how close it is and I am starting to feel like it actually might happen.
