Checking In

So sorry I have not blogged in so long. It has been a rough two weeks.

I sort of got some new responsibilities at work, which is good, but man has it been kicking my butt! I am supposed to be learning ALL desks and I am suppossed to be taking over for people when they are on vacation, in addition to my own desk. So ... on the 8th somone went out for a week. Then that weekend I drove to the other side of Dallas to go to my sisters mother in law's funeral. It was a LONG weekend and pretty emotional. On the 15th someone ELSE went out for a week's vacation. SO, I don't think I need to say that I was SO looking forward to this weekend !!! I badly need it and I slept til 9 this morning, the first time in I don't know how long.

To compound things, we've had some issues come up. No, no nothing marital related .. just things involving other people and some worry. It sort of built up and built up and on Wednesday night we had a RARE fight. It took a good 24 hours to get over, complete with emails and tears (mine, LOL), flowers and a good talk. I REALLY like how Conrad and I have good conflict resolution and even better that he understands the importance of it. When things get emotionally charged I am usually the one to walk out of the room and I did this time too ... went straight to bed ... and that usually means no resolution! ... but the next day we regrouped and things and 100% better and I love that about us.

It gives me hope ... not that I need it ... but I mean, it means I think we can handle a lot of things... and that gives me peace.

I hope to be back later this week with pics and house stuff --- sorry I've deviated from that!
