Happy Sunday! I hope everyone on the East coast is staying warm and dry. I have to say I am ever so slightly jealous about all of the snow you got. I could use one really good snow storm this winter, preferably on the weekend. Somehow, the cold weather is getting to me this year. The idea of being able to play in the snow and be homebound sounds wonderful.
Jim was on another business trip this week, so I had the pleasure of doing double-duty again as mother and father. It is getting a little wearing; I won’t deny it. He is gone again this week too. Sigh. I guess this is what happens when you get to be one of the big boys in a company.
Jim did come home in time to take Connor to his first college visit. The boys headed to the Twin Cities and checked out the University of Minnesota. Of course, he loved it. Not only is the campus state of the art but it has his chosen undergraduate degree. He came back with the obligatory t-shirt too. The idea of my baby becoming a Gilded Rodent is a bit difficult to swallow. After all, Badgers and Gophers are not necessarily friends, but you have to make sacrifices for your children. Now, I guess he needs to decide what other schools he wants to visit, if any.
Holly had a typical week with school and dance. Ballet rehearsals have not yet started, and she actually had a quiet weekend. Of course, this means she only had one hour of dance rehearsals on Saturday instead of three. Don’t worry. She still has three hours of dance today, Yay!
The auditors were here this week. The best part of this was the fact that I did not have to deal with any of it. This is such a great thing. I love the fact that I don’t have to deal with any of that this year. You cannot imagine the relief I feel.
Did you miss any posts this week? I posted my typical weekly summary recap as well as Fabulous Friday and What’s for Dinner? For reviews, I shared my thoughts on The Winter Girl and City of Stairs. Finally, I shared some more of my planning tricks in Getting Shit Done: Planning Part 2. Sometimes, simple really is better.
With Jim gone yet again, today will be spent getting things ready for the coming week. Groceries need purchasing. Laundry needs cleaning. Bills need paying. Holly has dance. You know – the usual. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Have a great week, and I’ll see you here next Sunday!
