A little note from the desk of Mikael

Ever feel like this? Some days I do. Especially the days in December. December is nuts. I love it. I hate it. I need to get used to it. I get the last two weeks off of work which is WONDERFUL, but fitting all four weeks of work into the first two weeks isn't much fun. But it does create for some funny little "oops" moments. Like today, I woke up early for an early morning visit, and to get into the office early to get some things done. Well, I don't function well in the morning. It isn't until late in the afternoon when I glance up into my rear view mirror that is notice how terribly I had applied my make up in the wee hours of the morning! One eye looks ok, but my left eye looks like I let a toddler try and trace the outline of my eye with a black marker! I tried to lick my finger and and smudge it smoother, but I think I ended up just rubbing it completely off. I am sure my face looks lop-sided, but I am too scared to look. Luckily there isn't anyone I am too worried about impressing today. So the One Eyed Make Up monster over here is going to sit back down and work on reports #3,4,and 5 of the day. Husband, if you are reading this, I will need a hand massage and "you look beautiful!" at some point today.

Hello World

Yes, we are still alive. I know I have been WAY overdue to write a new post, but whenever I think I will sit down and write a new one, I always come to the conclusion it will be lame, or I just get too lazy. So here is a little pre-New Years resolution: I, Mikael Webb Squire (yes, I still keep adding that Webb. It just feels a little weird without it still. Like when you go to the grocery store for 4 things, and you walk out with 3 of the things you neded and 15 other things that caught your eye. Then you keep realizing how much you use that one thing you forgot to grab while getting the 15 other way cooler things. That's pretty much my maiden name right now. Tangent over.) Ok, Where were we? Oh yeah, I, MWS, promise to blog more and document even the not so exciting things, even when I would rather curl up with a pickle and watch an episode of 30 Rock. And Yes, Mom, Ronnie loves me even with my blankey and pickle fetish. I knew there was a prince charming out there who would love my weird ways. Lately I have been cutting out snowflakes and finding the cutest holiday decor the dollar store has to offer to make this little place of ours full of Christmas cheer. You might be surprised what great things the dollar store has! I will post pics as soon as I can figure out how to from this silly iPad. Ronnie will be the "entertainment" at my work Christmas party tomorrow and I can't wait to show him off. He will be giving us a little pep talk on getting through difficult times and how to motivate others and be a support for them. I think he will be a hit. I love every little thing about him. Even the endless amount of military documentaries he somehow finds on Netflix.
