My Life in Pictures

Hi there from the drive home from Phoenix! This weekend I played in a hockey tournament. It was way fun, except that I drank 3 purple hooters, 2 shots of tequila, and 3 margaritas Saturday night at a cowboy bar with my team and I was veeeery sick the next morning. I still played that day though, thanks to Gatorade and Goo. I was all looking forward to writing a whole big blog about it, but tonight was game 3 of the Stanley Cup final and I have the SEC and Financial Reporting Conference tomorrow.

Let me tell you, as an accounting geek I am so, so excited. I was literally jumping up and down earlier. The Chairman of FASB (the Financial Accounting Standards Board), the Chief Accountant from the SEC (U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission), board members from PCAOB (The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board) and IASB (the International Accounting Standards Board) and a bunch of other muckity-mucks from the accounting world will be there. Nine hours of accounting, financial reporting, and regulation, with continental breakfast, coffee breaks, luncheon (not lunch, luncheon), and a reception- what could be more fun?!?! Don't answer that. It's good for CPE (continuing professional education, for my CPA license) credits, and I, for one (maybe literally) will LOVE IT. So I do need to get to bed. Here are some pictures since I don't have time to write more.

Oh yeah, I love playing tournaments. It was a blast! My first tournament since I tore my MCL.

I officially have a sudoku addiction. I have to do a puzzle every night to relax. More evidence of my numbers geekdom.

Flowers from my boyfriend. Aren't they lovely? I haven't written that much about him because I didn't want to jinx it, but our 6 month anniversary is this Monday, and he is so supportive and wonderful. He is making it a lot easier to deal with EMDR and therapy and everything else I'm trying to process right now. He's also funny and interesting and smart, and a total hockey geek. He came to the tournament and took the pictures of our games, and took care of me when I was so sick and didn't even mind. He is truly a nice guy and I love him for it.

Even more romantic, he got me sports bras to replace the ones that irritated my skin during the tournament. How sweet is that?!?! They are cool colors too, and one looks like a soccer ball. Love it!

Okay, I'm off to bed. Hopefully I'll be able to write more later, about hockey and dreams and EMDR.

I was sorry we couldn't spend more time together at the tournament. Looking forward to seeing you Sunday!

Ooo, you're doing the eye movement thing? That helped me more than any other therapy I've ever done (and there has been a LOT of it). It's tough work, but I found that seeing a change so quickly was amazing. I hope you are having similarly amazing progress!
