Blue Monday and National Hug Day

Today is apparently blue Monday (I say apparently because of this post). It is also National Hug Day which is a better thing to celebrate. Our workplace decided to celebrate both days anyway, and we came in wearing blue and ready to hug anyone who was willing.

A full week of work starts

For us office workers, today is our first full week back. Like many around this time of year, I felt pretty apprehensive about going back. It was so nice having a break from work and they always go way too fast. Christmas and New Year never last as long as you'd hope and everything just goes back to normal.

A brave new world

My wife will be leaving her place of work this week to go on her own adventure and creating her own pet sitting business. She is very scared and nervous, but I keep reassuring her that everything will be okay and if it doesn't work out, we can move on to something else.
