Post Tax Season Hangover

No, I'm not discussing an actual hangover. Although the possibility for that was more real this year than in any other year in the past. In fact, people of the Internet I have crossed a major milestone I feel I should share with you. Because really, if not with you... who else?

On April 15th, approximately 17 days before my 30th birthday, I, Heather Hamilton, got drunk for the very first time. And guess what? It was kinda fun. :-)

I have been working for my current company for almost eight years and as such this was my 8th after tax party but the first one in which I have partaken in the "festivities." I invited M. His job was to make sure that I did not make an idiot out of myself in front of my work people and also to make sure that I was able to get up the next day and fully function as there was a lunch date that I just couldn't miss.

While he did make sure I made it home and woke up Friday hangover free, I'm not 100% sure he didn't contribute to the fact that I had to leave the party at 9:30 pm to make it so. I'm a lightweight, a HUGE lightweight, so I'm sure that didn't help my cause either, but M did give me 2 shots on top of the other drinks.

Either way, I had a great time, I relaxed, I had fun and I am now just sort of coasting for a bit. Every year after tax season there is a week or two in which I have to play catch up. This weekend we cleaned up the yard, mowed, chased cows (not part of the plan) and started to try to kill off some of the weeds. M informed me this weekend that my yard should be green. All green. Not green and yellow and purple. I ask you... what fun is that?

Then yesterday I went and got my hair cut and colored, (I'll post pictures tonight or this afternoon) I attempted to find the dirt under the weeds in my flower bed, and last night I fell into bed at 9:00 and was asleep by 9:15.

I have so much to say and so many things to ponder, it will just be a matter of getting back into the blogging habit. Getting away for three months helped me, more than you can imagine. I needed the break to make the full transition from the old site to this site. To fully be ready to bring me back here.

So bare with me. I'm sure it's a lot like riding a bike. I will look a bit like and idiot for awhile and may fall on my face more than once, but I will get the hang of it and be back blogging interesting stuff before you know it.
