First week of 2011

The first week of 2011 came in fast, but ended slowly at work yesterday.

It was one of those moments where I wanted to hurry up the clocks up to 4:00 pm just so that some of us could leave.

And go home.

A couple of us were not feeling good all week. While we did have a great Christmas Break (mine was little wild...death of G'pa John and nephew Nathan's birth within a 24 hour frame), sometimes a bug will find ya.

Last night a deaf couple came over. The guy wanted some help in how to start up a web page or perhaps a blog site.  While my husband isn't a blogger, I am.  Towards the end of the evening, I took over, because, this blogger, me, knows almost everything about blogging. So I helped him set it up. I loved seeing the smile on his face when we opened a blog account for him.  He smiled. He's not much of a smiler. A very serious person, and I made him smile.

He is going to be flying from New Jersey all the way to California sometime this summer, and wants to chronicle his adventures. And he's one of the few deaf pilots, so it'll be very interesting!  I'm really happy for him.  And has asked me to be his team member on his blog to update it whenever he can't. Sure, I'd love to!

( soon as he puts more stuff in it, and ready to share, I'll share the link with you guys)

That just made my evening. I sincerely hope that my husband and I will see more of them, and to grow in our new friendship.

Woke up this morning, I'm just feeling very ICKY. Like, my throat hurts, my body aches and I'm cold or not cold. I probably will just stay home and stay in bed. And sleep.

Have a wonderful weekend, and if anyone is sick, FEEL BETTER! If you have something exciting going on, HAVE FUN! And....if nothing going on, but just chillin' out, have a great weekend!
