I woke up Monday morning, ready to take on the day and week. By 10am, the "last straw" was already in sight and I was worried I was going to have a mini meltdown. I won't bore you with the details of WHY my day wasn't going well. I just wanted Friday to arrive ASAP.
I was at the station trying to catch up on my work, when I heard some commotion in the lobby. I decided to investigate what triggered all the "ooohs and ahhhhs." As I turned the corner, I saw what had to be the BIGGEST TEDDY BEAR...EVER! It was a GIANT (4 1/2 foot tall) Vermont Teddy Bear. It was going to be used as a promotional prize...but I immediately grabbed him for a hug before they gave him away.
I even let him sit on my shoulders...
As you can see from the smile on my face, a hug from this big guy was EXACTLY what I needed.
