I guess I just don't know what to say except that I am struggling to figure out how to fit everything in now that I am working so much during the day. The blessing is that my family hasn't been affected too much because everything happens while they are at work and/or school and at night I am trying to just be.
To just be Michele the wife and Michele the mom...not Michele the girl who does anything else.
So far, so good.
Here's a recap of this week. There was a super yummy lunch with that guy that I like so much...a last minute 'hey! can you go to lunch?' kinda lunch date. In all honesty we were both shot and spent some time just staring at each other...and then we both totally laughed. Summer is coming. Summer is coming. Summer is coming.
Matteo was home all weekend and it was so very, very nice. I just love having him around. He's bigger than life in that there is never any question that Matthew is home...his stuff is everywhere. Somehow it's all ok though...it's just nice to have him home, sleeping under the same roof as his brothers.
But, his life is away now and on Tuesday I had to drive him back. It. Is. Far. After I dropped him off I picked up the largest diet coke I could find, put Pandora on the Aerosmith channel and creeped and crawled home...which was fine until that large diet coke made me wish I hadn't had it.
Hikes this week were warm and sunny. I love that they give me a chance to clear my brain...to help me transition from work to play.
That guy that I like so much had to work late one night so I fed the boys and we had a date night out in the garden, under the heaters. We were able to get a little taste of summer...a teaser, if you will.
I can't wait.
The garden is blooming.
Is there any better sight than a tomato plant growing tomatoes? Nope, I don't think so either.
I did it again...snuck into Disney for an hour. I parked, walked in and rode Soarin' Over California as a single rider and walked back to my car. Such a luxury! My pass expires in less than a month and we're still on the fence as to whether to renew or not...they are pricey, but we do get lots of use out of them.
We'll see. In the meantime, I am squeezing in lots of visits.
Our two cats are litter mates...sisters. And they hate each other. I mean, HATE each other. This was a big, big deal and lasted for about three minutes, but it was so sweet while it lasted.
My new job involves things I never knew existed...things like 'go to' meetings and conference calls and mass emails and faxes.
This mornings conference call...2 hours and 26 minutes. Put everyone on speaker phone, cleaned a bathroom, folded laundry, made some ranch dressing and did yoga. The funny part? I was an integral part of the meeting and they probably had no clue I was a multi tasking fool.
Meetings this week?
A fun surprise came in the mail today. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE these bracelets. Totally expensive in real life (but for a great cause) but I scored an online deal and bought them for myself. The best part? There are 10 of them...wear them all or just a few at a time.
Sometimes you just need to be a girl.
Plus, it makes long, long conference calls seem worth it.
I am so happy it's the weekend. The house is clean and the laundry is under control. Not much is going on for me, though that guy that I like so much is going to be working a lot. We are going to sneak out for a late night date tonight...late, as in we have a 9:00pm dinner reservation at a place with great food and even better cocktails.
The perfect Friday night. Hope I stay awake.
