It's hard to feel down about anything when you look at this face, isn't it?

I had a nice few days in L.A. doing not much of anything - hanging out with Dad and Deb playing Scrabble, helping Deb make ooey gooey chocolate chip cookies, seeing a movie, spending a day with Jen, Jim and their adorable Juliette. It was nice to take my mind off of things for a bit while Chris was out of town.

Yesterday afternoon, at the traditional P.F. Chang's Easter dinner, the fortune in my cookie said this: You'll accomplish more later if you take some time for yourself. So true ... I hope.

I came home early this morning. (And I do mean early. For a 7 a.m. flight I was up at 4:30 a.m. to be at the airport by 5:30 and it is so amusing to watch these people's eyes grow wide as they realize how long the line for security is - almost to the next terminal - and fret they will not make their plane. Um, hi - it is Monday morning at freaking LAX, what did you expect?)

Sorry, what was I saying? Oh yes, I came home today. To a car (thanks to Chris for parking it under a tree) covered in bird poo. So covered that we couldn't (a.k.a. were afraid to go near it with a 10-foot pole) open one of the car doors. If that old line that grandmas tell their grandchildren that getting pooped on by a bird is good luck, then HoneyBun is in for something special, I will tell you.

So, car washed and me with no nap (if you couldn't already tell by the rambling nature of this post) I am home now and in a makeshift office set up at the dining room table knee deep in the joy that is searching for a job. But feeling less stressed because my husband (who is wonderful even if he did leave my car under a tree) tells me that everything will be okay, as long as we have each other.

I'm positive things will be okay for you. Good things happen to good people. Just keep your hope alive....or just go back to school and get a PhD.

Chris IS right. And so is that fortune cookie. Hang in there, Tammy.
