We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars

Happy Groundhog Day

What a weird holiday. Apparently this morning, PA's most famous groundhog "Phil" predicted that it would be an early spring. Seeing as we have barely had a winter I don't see that as a mindblowing prediction. It seems like a pointless holiday, meant for nothing more than reminding me that I love Bill Murray.

I had a hard time getting up this morning. My alarm went off and I just really really prayed that it was magically Saturday and I didn't have to get up. I didn't get much sleep last weekend due to the wedding madness, and I am really looking forward to one morning (tomorrow) when I can sleep past 7:00. I know that it isn't crazy early the time I have to get up, but I feel motivated in the mornings and I am hoping to just wake up tomorrow, do some reading, clean the bathroom as it's now almost at the "dont want my bare feet to touch the tile" stage, maybe finally take the three bags of clothes taking up room on my floor to the Salvation army to donate. Oh the possibilities are endless. Just sometimes not being at work makes all the difference. I think it has just been a long week. David's injuries from the car accident have seemed to get worse in the past few weeks. His neck is a lot better but his lower back is really hurting. It's unfortunately putting a strain on both of us as he is grumpy from being in constant pain and I just have a hard time being around him when he is so cranky. He doesn't mean to come across as mean and gruff, but when you are home and relaxing its difficult to be sharing a space with someone who is feeling so miserable. I am trying to work harder at being more supportive since he is in a lot of pain, but I just want my old husband back!

As lame as this is, last night while watching the OC I started getting a bit nostalgic, for the good old days. You know, when Ryan was still the boy from the wrong side of the tracks and Julie Cooper-Nichol-Cooper was still scheming up super evil ways to make everyone's lives miserable. Now there are just three episodes left. How did we come so far?! and why do I actually care it's ending?

On a way more exciting note--last weekend I bought a camera!!! My grandma wanted to give my brothers and I some money before she died so she could see that we could enjoy it now. (makes me nervous coming from an 89 year old woman) I have been wanting one for a while and I absolutely LOVE taking photos, so I bought a Nikon D40. I am going to figure out how to link Flickr to my blog so I can share all my super awesome photos with the internet :) Yesterday my friend Mari and I went out on our lunch break and took some fun photos of Philly. Well more so the immediate area around our office cause it was really cold out, but it was so much fun. If anyone has advice on F/ settings and aperture tricks I would be up for it as I am a slow learner.
