Lace-Up The Chucks
I think, for me, that this is the craziest time of year.
And I love it.
It's spring and the weather is warming up, so Daniel and I get up super-early to hit the gym before work so we can spend every single moment outdoors after work—which includes dark neighborhood bike rides (don't worry, we're safe)!
We bike, we walk, we sit on restaurant patios and enjoy dinner, we watch the sunset from our front porch, we "toss the pig"... we're just outside all the time.
That also means that after work (read more about my job here), I'm not finding time to spend even a second on the computer.
And for good reason... because this time of year is also my busiest time at work.
We do a big, big solicitation mailing for our hospital every March, and all the responses from that mailing come straight to my desk.
Instead of 10 donations a day, I'm getting 30+.
And these gifts take far longer than usual donations to process... so it takes a lot of time and effort, but I tell you what—it sure makes my days go by quickly!
It's a little overwhelming... but so awesome to see the community's support at the same time.
Needless to say, with a packed work schedule and a ton on my plate, the last thing I want to do when I get home is get on the computer.
In all honesty, though it's busy, and exhausting, and just feels like a blur—this is definitely one of my favorite times of year.
I get excited to get up each day.
I can't seem to take the smile off my face.
Spring, though it seems busy, feels so good.
Time to kick off those work flats and lace-up the Chucks.
It's the weekend.
