Fill in the Blank Friday

I've not done one of these in many weeks, but I figured I was due for some reflection.  I've been feeling pretty crap all week -- physically exhausted and over-worked.  Sadly, Mr. Fine told me last week that the 'old Mrs. Fine' (read: the one who works 70 hours a week and is grumpy all the time) has come home to roost.  Unfortunately, I agree.  I'm not happy about it.  I'm not happy about it at all.  And I just don't know how to get back to the 'new Mrs. Fine' (read: the one who works 60 hours a week and can enjoy life outside of work).  I should likely be napping.  But who wants to nap on a sunny (read: 45 degrees - warm for here right now) evening.  I should likely be doing something fun.  But who wants to leave the house when they're in their fuzzy socks, hoodie, and yoga pants?  Not, I!  Ack.  So -- I need to reflect.  Here goes:

1.   I am       sometimes sarcastic.  A bookworm at heart.  Thrilled to see the world with a clarity I've never known.  A sucker for Girl Scout Cookies.  An addict when learning something new.

2.  The bravest thing I've ever done was    LASIK!  But you all knew that...before that?  I don't usually feel very brave...except when I do the black diamond sections that intersect with my blue square sections on the ski hill. 

3.  I feel prettiest when       I shower before school vs the night before and my hair looks proper.  When I wear heels vs comfortable dress shoes and when I wear my pea coats.  Those and the perfect matching lip gloss.

4.  Something that keeps me awake at night is   absolutely nothing (much to Mr. Fine's chagrin).  I can even sleep on a hardwood floor within a few minutes - just as snug as a bug.  I did stay awake for several hours this past week (read crap week rant above) and it drove me NUTS!

5.  My favorite meal in the entire world is    salmon on the BBQ, rice pilaf, and cooked fresh veggies.  Strawberry crumble for desert.  A bottle of Trader Joe's $4 wine (doesn't take much for me).  All on the patio in the middle of summer.  Shucks.  Makes me cry just thinking about it...where is summer?

6.  The way to my heart is        through chocolate, patience with my annoying habits, and a good solid hug.

7.  I would like to       be happy with myself.  Truly happy.

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends.  I am going to work on relaxing, being happy, and getting some emotional clutter tidied up.  What are you up to?

I actually went and splurged on some Girl Scout Cookies {and wine} at the grocery store today after work. I'm sorry to hear you've had a hard week! I hope you have a relaxing weekend :)

{There's a giveaway going on until Feb 20 @ my blog ... I'd love to see you there!}

I really heart your owl theme - we owl crushin' gals got to stick together. And I need to try some Trader Joes wine!

Oh Mrs. Fine~ I'm hoping and praying that you get some well needed R&R this weekend and that the warm weather kicks in soon. What can we do to make sure that it happens? I suggest a bottle of that wine with Mr. Fine and some cookies and a night of snuggling on the couch... computer off, candles on and a blanket. Lots of love xoxo

Hang in there, the warm weather is on it's way. Surround yourself with all the things that you love in your house ( including Mr. Fine).

I am making the most of our glorious Summer here in New Zealand, knowing that our cold,damp,rainy Winter will be here before I know it.
