This is our granddog. Taco. Yes, he can fly. He kind of looks like a big, muscle-y fly, doesn't he? But then, with the background, he becomes more fairy-ish. I'm fascinated and greatly amused by this photo. Hope you enjoy it, too...

Well, the countdown has begun. Actually, it's been going on for quite a while. And, come to think of it, there's TWO countdowns happening.

The first is for when I'm done working - FOREVER. The kind you get paid for, anyway. I only have 9 more working days as I write this. And I've been SO crazy-busy at work, too. My dear boss keeps thinking of all these wonderful projects I should get done before I leave. Before I know it, I'll have half of next semesters workload completed! I understand where he's coming from. As he put it, when my last day is here I'm going to really need a rest!

But, am I going to have a rest? Noooooo. The very next day after I'm done with work, I'm packing my bags and heading to Harrisburg to spend the night so I can fly out to Madison the next day. My siblings and I are surprising my mom for her 80th birthday which is the day after Mother's Day. That will be great, even though it hadn't been in the plan until last week.

I'll get back on Tuesday to find my living room furniture-less. Chris will be polishing the wood floors Wednesday and then Thursday our new furniture (check this post) will arrive! I will be busy preparing some wedding decorations and making the guest book and I go away for three days again the last weekend in May and then THE KIDS WILL BE HERE! I made the mistake of looking at my calendar before I left for work yesterday and I about had a panic attack in the car!

Yes, that's my second countdown - to the wedding. It's going to go so fast now.

Ironically, even though I'm crazy busy at work and I know I only have 9 days left, the time is just creekping along - because I'm counting the days. The day itsself goes fast but the days are creeping by.

I do hope this theory works for the wedding countdown in May, too! Because there's still LOTS to do around here.

I'll keep you posted.
