I was so happy to leave work yesterday that I was dancing in the elevator...luckily I was the only one in it. It's been brutal lately and it all came to a head these last few days. We finalized a $12 million grant that was the most complicated thing I have done in 15 years. It was a massive project and trying to manage all the doctors and scientists involved was like herding cats.
I decided that I need a break....so I'm not going back to work until January 3rd. I have 11 straight days with no grants, budgets, or scientists. As I walked out.....I had a smile from ear to ear....and that's when I started dancing.
Today I'm cleaning house, doing laundry and getting ready for Christmas. My sister flys in tonight from Montana. Presents aren't part of the picture for us anymore. It's more importnat just to spend time together. We talk, watch movies, and eat....family life revolves around food. Meals are what bring us all together in the same place.
So I'm going to dance my way around the house, finish the laundry, and enjoy my time off.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year.
