Happy Sunday! For the football fans among you, are you excited about the big game tonight? I just hope it is a good game. We invited some of our friends to watch the game with us, so it should be a fun time at least.
Jim spent the week on what should be his last business trip for a while. It will be wonderful to see his face at home in the evenings again. As he said the other day, there is nothing glamorous about travel anymore, so I know he is relieved that his trips are at an end for the near future as well.
Poor Connor had a rough week. He and his girlfriend decided to part ways. Actually, she called it quits, but he admitted that he was going to pull the plug in another month or so. I think they both realized that they are better friends than girlfriend/boyfriend, which is surprisingly mature of them. I know he is still struggling with the decision and the need to shift his feelings from romance back to friendship. The end of your first major relationship is always tough, and we have been helping him assuage his broken heart.
Holly settled into her new dance schedule. The additional ballet rehearsals are now on Monday, keeping her at the studio for five hours. To me, it sounds like a lot, but she enjoys every minute of it. In addition, competition season is less than a month away, so the weekend rehearsals are taking on an added urgency as they work to clean up the dances to make them performance-worthy. It never ceases to amaze me how she can be the crabbiest girl in the world before dance and the happiest girl in the world after dance. I wish it were that easy for the rest of us!
My week was just as busy as I expected it to be, but after six months, I finally got to dig my hands into some of the financial reports on which businesses run. I forgot how much fun that is. (I know, I am a numbers nerd.) There is something so satisfactory about seeing all the numbers add up or balance to zero. It is the first time in a long time I have felt content at the end of each day.
As for the other part of my life, I only had one review this week: Burning Midnight. The rest of the week, I wrote another post in my series about organization and personal helpful hints, Getting Shit Done: Managing the Dreaded In-box as well as gave an update on my progress on adopting my one word for the year, Making the Grade: #oneword Update. I rounded out the week with my regular features, the weekly summary, What’s For Dinner?, and Fabulous Friday. Please check them out if you have not done so already.
That’s enough of my rambling for the day. Enjoy your Sunday, eating yummy food and enjoying the game or not if football is not your thing. Have a wonderful, relaxing day and even better week to come, and I’ll see you next week!
