I Declare Victory!Posted: January 16, 2011
I declare victory over a perpetual inability to sleep in. It was ridiculously exciting to see 10:35 on my clock when I finally rolled out of bed this morning!
Before my feet hit the floor, though, my ribs hit…a box?
I was so exhausted when I got home from watching the playoffs with The Coach last night that I managed to fall asleep with a present in my bed.
In honor of my new job, he made me (!!!!) an engraved pen and case set. How legit is that?
Of course, he’d hit the nail on the head with the quote, choosing one from the legendary Vince Lombardi:
“I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious“
It was such a sweet gesture I didn’t mind finding it with my ribcage when I woke up!
Shortly after, a fabulous – albeit late – breakfast presented me with an opportunity to declare victory over the ever-elusive perfect omlette.
The other half of the bagel got smothered in wild cherry preserves.
Thank you, momma, for the Panera gift card to support my whole grain bagel habit! Victory over a grocery budget? Yes, indeed!
Oddly enough, sleeping in has made my day infinitely more productive. I’ve already marked dishes, laundry, and lunch prep off my to-do list. and plan to emerge victorious from my black hole of a closet.
Man I feel like mon-ay…
Now if Da Bears could make a decisive victory over the Seahawks, it’ll be a perfect sweep of a day!
What are you declaring victory over today?
