Sidetracked

Well, darn... I haven't answered your questions from Wednesday yet... and I am really sorry about that. I have them and will get to them... worst case would be that I'll hold them and answer them this week...

I don't even know where the time is going anymore. I just know that I'm losing it!

What have I been up to, you might ask? I'm not sure that I even remember! From Wednesday on is pretty much a blur...

Lets see... while waiting to meet my Dad for dinner on Wednesday night - John bought me these things because we stopped in a Hallmark store...


Isn't that the sweetest thing you've ever seen?

Smells like heaven... it's a new scent for me... one of the scents of the month...

Another scent of the month - which I really liked as well!

I got this one for Christmas - but Sage & Citrus will always be my #1 favorite scent! 

After that shopping trip we had a wonderful dinner with my Dad - talked lots of politics and all sorts of other things. I learned several new pieces of information about my grandparents... things that I'd never known before. 

Thursday was a whirlwind day at the office - and even ended with me finding out that I was moving my workspace. It made me laugh actually - because I've been there for a year and a half... and I'm moving to my third workspace. For the last 6 months - I shared an office with a coworker that I share a lot of projects with... we both got moved into cubicles again. The best part? We're on the opposite side of the building as the rest of our department! I'm going to test the theory of "out of sight - out of mind" and see if my stress level goes down a little bit.

On the way home, I got a dinner offer that I couldn't refuse... my amazing friend Danielle and I went to dinner at our favorite place. PF Changs rocks our world... I hadn't realized it, but it is "our place" - hahahaha. We had our favorite - Crispy Green Beans... and I ordered John's favorite entree, Crispy Honey Shrimp, so that I could bring them home to him. Neither of us can finish an entree - so we try to share as much as possible. Funny thing is that now - we actually get three meals out of one entree! 

Friday brought the big move at work... and by the time we got home last night - I just couldn't function... it was an extremely long week with lots of emotional valleys. So we picked up dinner and I pretty much became worthless... I made the mistake of getting a dessert for us to share, and I don't know exactly what happened after that. I ate a little dessert and immediately felt really ill, so I had to go to bed - at 8:30! 

We jumped up early this morning because we were having our Environmental Inspection as well as our new mattress being delivered - both were supposed to happen at 9:30.... the mattress actually got here at 10:15 (and the order was wrong...so they have to come back next Saturday)... and the inspector? Oh, he showed up at 11:30!! Honestly! There were lots of issues with him... but mainly it boils down to us doing a LOT of work this morning for him to pretty much walk in and sign a paper... which cost us $145! 

Where can I find a job that pays me $145 for about 15 minutes worth of work?

From there we made our trip to WalMart for our biweekly grocery trip... John is such a wonderful guy - he did the shopping and I did this... 

 

We've both spent the rest of the day working on various projects for our church.... and I'm actually still waiting for John to get home from the church - he went up there at about 4 to print some flyers... and he's still working on making that happen. Oh goodness! Hopefully he'll be home soon... I'm about ready for dinner and then bed!
