T. G. I. F.

What a week.  What a week.  Found out this week that one of my coworkers and good friend is being moved to a different department within the company.  While I know she will thrive in her new position I will surely miss her, as will all of us.  She was a great sounding board for the few many meltdowns I have had from feeling overwhelmed and frustrated.  But what I think I’ll miss the most are her impersonations.  Man is she good.  I know this is certainly not a “good-bye” but rather a “see ya later” it still sucks a big one for all involved (well minus the department she is moving to). 
It has just been one of those weeks.  You know the ones where you just seem to not be able to get out of that funk?  Just when you think you are about to bounce back something always knocks you back down.  T. G. I. F.
The one thing that has kept me pushing through this hellish week (besides the much needed mental health day I took on Wednesday) is another trip to Ann Arbor, MI to visit my sister for her 27th birthday and her roommate.  I cannot believe my younger sisters are 27 (they are twins.  The other one lives in St. Louis, Mo with my parents and isn’t able to back to MI for celebrations.).  They will always be the stubborn little brat who wouldn’t wear anything but a pink top and jean skirt to school for a month or a climbing partner.  Apparently when they were born I rushed up to my Great Grandmother, Great-Gran we called her, who was getting off her plane screaming “Twins! Twins!”  I was 2.5 years old and supposed to keep it a secret.  Apparently I just couldn’t contain myself.  Same holds true today.  I do not have any recollection of the day they were born but have always been proud to be their big sister.  My mom tells me another story of when we were once in grocery store.  The twins were in the grocery cart in I’m assuming their carriers and I next to them while mom checked out. Apparently there was a young couple behind us in line who were not goo-ing and aww-ing over them so I boldly said, “Did y’all see them?  They are twins!”  My mom said she was always a little concerned I would get jealous of all the attention they got.  After pointing them out to complete strangers because they weren’t giving them the attention I so thought they deserved she quickly realized she had nothing to worry about.   
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAMBAM AND LIS!  Lis – look forward to celebrating with you in a few hours!  Cam – look forward to celebrating with you in Ireland and Scotland in a few weeks!
I know I haven’t done this in a while but would like to share the different photos I have taken over the last week or so with my phone.  Friday Photo Dump:

  1. I hate those weeks where it feels like it's one thing after the other. You can't get a break! I hope your week is off to a better start!

    ..and what great photos. I especially like the pink glitter and the baby. Could he be any cuter? I don't think it's possible!


    1. YES! They are absolutely the worst! Unfortunately, this week wasn't much better. However, as it is now Thursday, things are starting look up a bit:)

      And thanks for the nice comments on the photos:) I think you are right, the baby could NOT be any cuter!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting! It's nice to know someone actually reads my posts:)


I love hearing from y'all. Comments are my favorite!
