New England! Right now! This is the time to be living here. We are united in a collective, Vitamin D-induced stellar mood for as long as it lasts (24 hours or less) so if you can get here within that time frame, bully for you. I got to take my run outside this morning, the first time in months and months, and though my knees are thoroughly confused by the turf change, my feel-good center is all stoked. Endorphins + caffeine + spring = Happy McManic Pants. I've been at work for hours and I'm still flying high.
Unfortunately, and this may be a buzzkill of a seasonal downside, HR has been struck with a case of The Mystery Goopy Eye. Might be allergies, might be conjunctivitis. A doctor visit was inconclusive, so we're left to keep aware of signs of infection and smear on the antibiotic prophylactically. That's not so bad, the tough part is deciding whether to go to the family seder tonight or, you know, pass it over. It's probably better to be safe and confine any potential pinkeye to one household, even though it sucks to miss family times. And I'm definitely showing my parent-of-a-well-child privilege because I was bummed that we missed out on going an entire year between doctor visits by about two weeks. What a preposterously lucky year.
Wherever you are, whatever you're doing, I wish you ease in both decision making and eye-opening. Happy Passover if that's your thing. Happy 4/14/14 everyone else.
