The week of poof!

Well I think it's safe to say that blogging while I'm working out in the field is difficult!   This week it was back to work for me and with a vengance!  I don't know if it was just work though.  We have been instructed to not go over 40 hours a week (I usually work 50-60 hours when out in the field) so it's not that I was working really late but I was seriously tired!  And busy with other stuff.

I've been working on planning a friend's couples wedding shower and spent all week doing stuff for it.  Shopping, shopping, making decorations, prepping food, forgetting to order beer, etc.  I guess that's why I'm tired!  Usually my schedule is work, come home, workout, relax for a bit, make dinner and continue relaxing.  This week it was all about work, errands, tasks, dinner, tasks, sleep!

No workouts for the whole week!  At least I did a good job of packing my lunch and making dinner at home.  Last night Scott made homemade pizza and it was delish!  I love it when he makes pizza.

Things are getting ready to change drastically around here though.  Scott goes back to work on Monday.  Boo.  He usually works for about 4-5 months then takes a few months off.  We've really gotten into a good groove with chores, making dinner and hanging out together.  I know he has to work but I'll miss him!  He works 14-16 hours a day so we don't see each other much during the week and he is fed 3 meals a day so...  I'll be cooking for 1 again!  The good thing is that we have really good friends that live right down the street so they can adopt me while Scott is working!

The good news is I'm in the office for the next 3 weeks!  It's almost like being on vacation again!  It'll be a good time to organize and get back on track!

Time to go hang a million tissue paper poof balls!


  1. I agree--blogging during the work wk is so difficult as opposed to the wknd when I feel like a lady of leisure lol.

    The wedding shower sounds like fun and Im sure all your hard work will pay off when it's done with it.

    Good luck getting used to your new routine this wk--what does he do that he only works four to five months at a time? I want a schedule like that!

    The shower was great! I think the couple had a really good time and everything went off without a hitch!

    Scott works in film and TV so his work is fairly seasonal. Sometimes I'm jealous of him having months off at a time but I think I would get bored. I was definitely bored when I was unemployed but I think it's different!

  3. just wanted to stop in and say hi, i read your comment on caitlin's blog today about quitting smoking and wanted to say that i think you summed things up perfectly. i totally agree with you and thanks for sharing such sound advice :)

  4. Thanks Stephanie! Quitting smoking sucks and it's something I still struggle with sometimes. I wrote a post on quitting called No Butts About It:
    Thanks for stopping by!
