For years (mmm, nine to be exact), I have wanted to document tax day. The end of busy season. The day that you bound into the office and no one recognizes your bright-eyed and bushy tailed-ness. The day when everyone asks, "Do you need help with anything?" and no one does. The day when you plan to be done by late morning so that you can casually wander over to the other side of the office in order to be first in line when the lunch announcement rings over the intercom system. The day when you can count on having at least two people sitting on your desk swinging their feet through the afternoon. The day when you make a list of all the fun things to catch up on, including learning that dance. The day when you laugh so hard that one of the partners sticks his head in your cube and smirks knowing the relief you feel. The day when every single item gets crossed off your due date list. The day your desk is completely empty (even though the residual files are in your file cabinet down the hall). The day when you actually leave work at 5:00 and are reintroduced to sunlight.
It's actually one of my favorite [work] days of the year. It can be chaotic, but it's like the last day of school when everyone is buzzing with excitement.
This year, I took lots of photos with my new iTouch (thanks, Dave!). A few screen shots of the music I was listening to, my breakfast (thanks, Rachel!), snacks (thanks, Jessie!), girl time (thanks, Angie!) and a few of my desk. I whipped this page up last weekend with my roomies. It is now on display at the store.
Supplies: Patterned paper, stickers: October Afternoon; Alphas: American Crafts; Pen: Sharpie.
As always, I don't know how to wrap up this post, so I guess I'll just stop there. Cheers.
