You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
It is just after midnight here Central Time. I am never awake this late. I barely greeted 2011 at this hour. It may have had something to do with a cup of coffee at 3pm. Just sayin'.
It may also have something to do with the wheels in my head that won't stop. I got word of a really good opportunity today, and it is something I am pursuing. Not anything I can discuss at this point. Just keep those positive vibes coming, would you?
I lay there thinking about all of the great things in my life, and wonder if it can get better. I think about my friends and how lucky I am. I hear Ben sleeping, and am so grateful that he is in my life. Ben is the reason I was given that framed Dr. Seuss quotation in the first place. Better than I could have dreamed. Dreamed? Dreamt? Which one is it Karyn?
Instead of laying there, I thought I would check in with blog world.
Today, that would be the day I am leaving, not the day entering as I sit here and type, was a rather typical day.
Well, except that it took 2 hours to get to work due to an inch of snow. I am not kidding. Yes, you would think Minnesotans would be able to drive in this. They are not.
I had a few meetings, but most of the day was head down at my desk, getting some documentation complete that I have postponed way too long. It was a productive use of desk time.

As planned, we had leftover chili for dinner. Best. Chili. Ever. Cannot be emphasized enough.
There is someone else in my life making reality better than dreams for a lot of people.
