This has been one of those weeks where I wonder where it went while wondering why isn’t if Friday yet! Getting back into the swing of things has been kind of easy considering the time off I have had in the past month. I love long weekends and short work weeks.
The heat is getting to me, which makes me long for football weather and not having to come up with multiple layers of clothing each day. I have yet to work in an office where the temperature is just right. These leads me to cart a sweater to work and if I get really desperate I turn my heater on. And with a heat index of 100+ I just want to cry.
I have been slammed at work, not because I was out but because some of the other producers now have clients that I can work with. This is great news but it is almost like I can never get into a grove and just go with it. I should have two really crazy weeks, one that is winding down and then one where I can really focus on sharpening my skills. This has yet to happen and while I love to stay busy it seems like my poor little to do list never shrinks.
Even with all the sleep I got after Granny’s funeral, I have ended up either taking a nap once I get home or like last night, I went to sleep at 7 on the couch, woke up at 10 and stumbled to the bed. And yes, I could have slept in today and taken a nap!
I also hit Target after work and I am going to brag, I did not go crazy. There is something about that store that sucks me in. To the point that most of my purchases are over $50 everytime I go and I am still not sure what it is that I get! But I walked out spending less than $15 today and almost started dancing right there because that never happens! One bag of stuff, that is all.
I have great news plus a prayer request. My BFF and her husband have been blessed again with a pregnancy. Little Liam will be a big brother early next year. I am asking for all of you kind people to join in praying for them again, this time for a completely boring pregnancy, a peacefulness for the parents and a very healthy and happy little one.
I am beyond giddy for them but have made the solemn promise that I will not cheerlead that everything is perfect. While some can think that is an odd request, I get it. In fact, I have to hand it to my friend for doing so well so far. I cannot imagine the worries and stress that they are both feeling. As a friend, again, looking in from the outside, well, I am happy but I am reigning it in because even I worry. I have prayed for this, wished for it and wanted this for them and my only hope is that God sees them through. I have also promised not to promise any outlandish items for this one. I got carried away before, what can I say.
My parents have been going full speed ahead working with the group of kids the volunteer for, a school for adults with Down Syndrome. They love it and with that, they are instant grandparents to a ton of kids. Takes the pressure off! But this weekend they are performing their annual musical. It is a mix of different songs that they sing and dance to, I will be attending Saturday night and hope to remember my camera. They are a hoot and gave my parents an opportunity to volunteer and have a lot of fun with them.
And in just a few short weeks, my girls from Nashville (those crazy ladies I used to work with) will be visiting me for the weekend. Pray that it all goes well, they are crazy but I am cooking for them and we plan on hanging by the pool, talking and laughing for the most part. I need to put some ground rules together though. . .I vividly remember our Girls Trips from the office. And now sadly, my former boss has seen some of the pictures. At least he laughed. It could have been worse.
