think big

People are willing to give you what you ask.

But you have to ask.

A lady of forty-seven who had been married twenty-seven years and has six children knows what love really is and once described it for me like this: ‘Love is what you’ve been through with somebody.’
James Thurber

My parents hid this in a cabinet while in town Friday and called me yesterday morning to tell me where to find it.  And I don’t know…I just think that’s the cutest thing ever.

I jacked this from the Facebook wall of Lia’s mom.  No big whoop.

Monday came far too quickly this week and it’s not because I had a particularly busy or even eventful weekend.  In fact, this was the second straight weekend since returning from California where I’ve refused to schedule anything other than sleep. I slept until noon on both Saturday and Sunday – something I haven’t done for quite some time – without really even trying.  I’ve had a cold and tell myself the sleep was needed but why, then, is it 6:30 on Monday morning and I feel like I haven’t slept in a week?

I have a severe case of the winter blahs which probably sounds far more dramatic than intended but is still very real. I’m not going to jump off the Hennepin bridge but I can’t find motivation for anything other than work so I’ve thrown myself into that head first.  In my personal life I’ve only really been doing the things I can’t put off any longer, which is sad because I am excited about a lot of things.  Nate helped me ward off my usual winter grumpiness and I was pretty chipper straight through the holidays but once that was over,  early January was a bit rough.  I managed to escape for a good week and a half to The Warm but now I’m just burnt out. I love Minnesota so it has less to do with being unhappy where I am and more do to with the legitimately real lack of Vitamin D in my life.  The first thing I did after plopping into my office chair this morning – after I laid my head on my desk and internally screamed, “Whhhhhy?!” was take a 3 and a half minute breather to watch this video of I Hate Everyone, a song by Get Set Go.  My best friend Lia brought it to my attention several years ago:

I returned yesterday from almost two weeks in beautiful, sunny Southern California (I know – poor me) where I spent a little over a week in Huntington Beach on business followed by a much needed four day vacation in Los Angeles and the surrounding area. My entire body is sore.  I’m sunburned, I sliced my foot on the beach and I completely lost my voice on day 7.  An average of 5 hours of sleep per night was the norm.  And I feel awesome. This trip reconfirmed everything I already knew – the sun? I need it.  While on the plane, I tried to recap (I sware!) what was our two year anniversary of moving from LA but found it impossible to encapsulate my thoughts and feelings.  And I don’t care because it was exactly what I needed.

Ah well, better luck next time.  Later this week I hope to finish and share a photo slideshow of our vacation.  Also? I’m freezing.

I was looking forward to today’s Vikings – Giants game and what was supposed to be our first and only trip to the Metrodome this season.  And then the roof collapsed.  Of course it did:

We decided to go anyway.

Where do we put it all?

Taller than the 'dome

This weekend will easily go down as one of those surreal and magical memories  that come once in a lifetime.
