1. Yes.  The first Tuesday in January after an election--that's when the big hit of stationery comes.  It usually lasts til around April.

2. It was pretty instantaneous (speaking of the ex here).  However, we see how that turned out.  :D

3. I have a light weight/fast cardio workout planned, but I may trash it to mow the back yard instead.  The weather is awesome; I can do the video tomorrow.  (Of course, I can mow tomorrow, too, so we'll see :D )

1. June/July and then Oct/Nov, aside from my normal day to day job being a bit busier I have additional projects.  Makes for some long days. 

2,  Instant attraction.  I do not believe in love at first sight because I do not think that you can be in love with someone you do not know but it was definitely lust at first sight.  I still remember my first time seeing him.

3,  I have been doing a lot of bike riding lately since they opened a new portion of hike and bike trail.  I ride for 50 minutes before work and then 1.5-2 hours on non work days when possibly.  Will be heading off in a few minutes when it gets a bit lighter.

Not applicable, I do dread making plans or obligations and my kid getting sick, usually during the school year.  We worked together and DH has said I was an instant attraction, Lol but I never knew him until we met up at a downtown club with mutual friends, It developed slowly and we dated three years before getting married in 1992.  I've been a real slouch and have not exercised since breaking my foot in June.

1. Summers can be tough as a freelancer because there is more competition for work.

2. We met online, so it's difficult to define "instant." We didn't cyber date, we just talked about books and music. We met for lunch on a Tuesday in July and we've basically been together ever since. I knew him all of 36 hours before I told my friends that I was going to marry him and have his babies. That was 17 years ago. 

3. Maybe just a dog walk. I have a lot of work to finish this afternoon before I attend a funeral.

1. Is there a time of year that you dread going to work? -- always? Seriously, there isn't any particular season, month, time etc that I dread.   Wait, let me take that back.  The first week of school in the fall semester always sucks. Not because work sucks (our work is completely independent of the academic calendar), but because parking, traffic and campus sucks at that time.

2.  Was there an instant attraction to your spouse/SO or did is slowly develop? -- well, since we met online, it slowly developed.

3. Excecise plans for the day? -- Today is a light day.  I had plans for a walk with the dog this morning but slept in instead. So dh and I will walk with him after dinner, but it will be a shorter walk because it will still be 85 degrees at 8pm.

1. Is there a time of year that you dread going to work?

Not really. Lately it has been way too overwhelming though, for everyone.

2.  Was there an instant attraction to your spouse/SO or did is slowly develop?

Nope, he was not my "type" at all. I liked the surfer type guy then lol. I knew we would get married though before we even started going out. He picked me up one day at work, like being carried over the threshold and something in me just knew. We had a mutual friend at work that told both of us that the other liked each other (even though we didnt say anything to her and we always consider her our matchmaker) and then it went from there. We always wonder what happened to her and only know her name was Kelly and where she lived almost 26 years ago so I think of her everytime we pass that apt. complex.

3. Excecise plans for the day?

NO!!! Lol. I think I pulled my sciatica running as I was in unbearable pain last night. Just relaxing today with a heating pad.

1. Is there a time of year that you dread going to work?

Probably not anymore.   Recent drastic changes at my workplace have made everything much, much nicer.  :)  The time I used to really dread was December 31st, and I might still.  We just haven't gotten there yet.  

2.  Was there an instant attraction to your spouse/SO or did is slowly develop?

Ha.  If he counts as an SO, GAB and I didn't particularly like each other for the first year or two that we knew each other.

3. Excecise plans for the day?

Probably none.  I'm sitting up today, which is a vast improvement over yesterday's inability to stand up, fever, etc.  I don't see anything more strenuous than walking very slowly in my immediate future.

  1.  Not really.  There are "seasons" to my work, and the busiest and craziest is graduate admissions season, which lasts from the end of January which is the deadine for applications until 15 April, which is the deadline for admitted students to accept our offers.  But I really like it all.   2.  Developed slowly and I fought it all the way, because I really was not looking for a relationship when I met DH.  3.  I walked three miles in very hilly territory then took a two hour tour of a cathedral while on my feet the whole time.  I can walk eight miles in flat territory and not even feel tired, but three miles in the hills is a while different story!

1,  Christmas, it is always so busy that time of year.

2.  Instant

3.  I walked a bit, too tired for much of anything else.
