It feels like quite a while since I’ve written a post just catching up on life, so I thought I’d do one of those quickly today. I’ve been so darn busy every day I’ve hardly had time to read/comment on blogs, let alone get any fresh content out there! I’m not sure how many posts I’ll write this week, I think it’ll all depend on how tired I am.
Here’s what my week looked like LAST week!
My work week was crazy, busy, hectic, chaotic, and AWESOME. It was March Break for most kids & we host activities each year from Monday-Saturday. I think this was one of the funnest, fullest years I’ve ever done. I was brought back to my childhood by painting and potting seedlings, re-learning the art of friendship bracelet making, coloring an endless amount of strange creatures and images, and watching my first home-made volcanic eruption. I am STILL mentally exhausted & it’s back to work tomorrow after a too-short day off, but such is life in retail! There is rarely such a thing as a week-end off.
I also had a LOT of puppy time before bed this week. Despite his devilish night-time tendencies, this puppy is a cuddle monster. I think this is his favorite position when you pick him up, and I just had to get it on camera!
On Thursday evening I attended this fantastic Charity event that one of my best friends helped organize. It was SO well done and truly motivated me to get more involved and school if it meant I could help put together such a bad ass fashion show. It was a lovely couple hours spent with good friends (and spending money for a good cause that I really could not afford… But charity! I couldn’t help it. The auction was too good.)
This weekend I put a lot of time in at work, but Sunday was a dedicated family day, and I NEEDED it. I hadn’t seen my nephew in weeks and I missed him terribly. Look at his adorable face, I just can’t handle it! Although he did a lot more sleeping this time around than playing, we still had some really sweet, giggly moments.
It was my sis-in-law’s birthday yesterday so we had a really lovely family brunch in the afternoon, followed by more food and some present opening for her, of course. It was all around a fantastic weekend, even with work. It was a great shift & I’m getting really excited because a group of us is planning a huge Hunger Games event. Prepare for awesomeness.
I have another jam-packed week starting today, too. On top of my regular 5 day work schedule I have 2 concerts, one benefit show, a meeting to organize another work event, and hopefully some more family time on the weekend. I’m looking forward to a day where I am reminded of what sleep is like… But until then? I’ll just keep enjoying the good times!
I’d also just like to take a moment for my dad, who I very rarely talk about, but today marks the 13th year since he passed away. I was very young, but I still make an effort to stop during my day and remember some of the special times we had together.
How have you been? What’s going on in your life that’s new and exciting?
