Easter weekend. I am not really a big Easter fan but we had a pretty nice day today. Warm weather for a change and I was able to go out and work in the yard this afternoon. Was out there for about 2 hours cutting down vines and other overgrown stuff. Definitely a lot of work ahead but it was nice to be able to go outside for a change.
Yesterday we worked till about 2pm, then met up with our friends John & Jana for lunch at Rizzuto's. Aftwards we decided to go to the movies with them and saw "Hanna". Pretty good movie. Not quite what I expected but still good.
Tomorrow is already Monday. :( This will be week number 3 in our new office and things are slowly falling back into a routine. Still very busy but slowly getting better.
My parents came back from their two week vacation in Spain on Friday. Time definitely flies. I am ready for another vacation soon. We will see how it plays out. Things definitely have to get a little more stable at work before we can plan another trip. Right now we are thinking about early June for a possible West Coast vacation (northern CA, San Francisco & Oregon). We will see.

So it's Wednesday and I am finally getting to a small update here after our crazy office move. All in all it honestly went fairly smooth considering we moved everything from one location to the other over two days. We were still in business at the old location until Saturday afternoon and back up and running at the new location Monday morning.
Mike & I worked all day Saturday and Sunday but in the long run it was worth it. We had some small problems and a few things are still not quite working the way we would like them to but nothing completely major so that's good. Of course this week is also the week prior to spring break which means I am crazy busy contacting all the schools trying to work out delivery schedules to make sure they have milk to serve after their break. Fun, fun, fun.
All in all I am very happy with the new office though. I like the set up of the place and am happy with the way my department looks. We are still waiting for the dividers/cubicle walls in my department, a conference room table and a few other small things. Looking forward to next week when things will hopefully be a little quieter.

Is spring finally around the corner?
It's slowly starting to feel like spring is in the air finally. This weekend we had temps in the 50ies (10-14C) Had a nice day Saturday with one of our friends, just being out and about. Today we had a pretty lazy day at home, did the dishes, laundry, etc. Later we are going to catch up on some more shows, have some cheese+crackers and wine.
We might actually move offices at work this coming weekend. We will see. If not this weekend the weekend after most likely. I am looking forward to the new place but setting everything up will definitely be a challenge. It should be nice once it's all in place but getting there will be a pain. Oh well. It will be worth it in the end.
My parents are off to Spain on Friday for 2 weeks. Jealous about that. :) Not sure when our next trip is going to be, probably a weekend somewhere but not sure when or where yet. All depends on how things develop at work.
Mail Update: A letter is going out tomorrow to: Lotte/Denmark. Received letters from: Emilia/Finland, Charles/TN, Nina/WA, Sarah/Canada and Carmen/Malta.
