Well, I survived.
Well, not really. But it felt that way a few times last week.
What a week.
I am soooo glad I don’t travel for a living anymore. I can’t believe I did it for almost 10 years, but that was 10 years ago and I had more stamina then, I guess. I certainly couldn’t do that full-time again. Nor would I want to.
I ended up sick all week with a rotten cold and so on top of the crazy travel, I had sleepless nights (thanks to the stuffy head and wire-you-up decongestants) and lots of snotty tissues (gross, but, hey, it’s reality)
You may have noticed no posts on Thursday/Friday. Those were my marathon travel days – where I really did feel like I was running a gauntlet. I was in survival mode and had no extra “gumption” for a blog post.
But, I have to say, the week was a smashing success. Other than one little hiccup on Monday morning, everything went smoothly and I had the most wonderful time with my colleagues. They are a great bunch of people and I truly enjoyed spending time with them while we accomplished the goals we’d set for the week.
Here was my “office” on Monday:
These are the sweet ladies I spent my week with:
This week, it’s back to my usual routine. I’m so happy to be home. Only thirteen more days of school for the girls and then things will really slow down. The girls were talking about it this morning – about how they can’t wait to wake up when they want to as opposed to when the school system wants them to! I think we’ll all enjoy that.
I’ve got a big shopping trip planned today – restocking the kitchen and back to my normal cooking routine. Here’s what’s on our menu for this week (so far) – I let SuperMan and the girls dictate the menu to me yesterday so it’s mostly their favorites:
- Pizza Braid (and maybe crock pot lasagna, I’m hungry for it)
- Asian Chicken Stir Fry
- Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo (maybe)
- BBQ sandwiches
- Meatloaf (maybe)
- Grilled chicken (on Friday when SuperMan is home to man the grill)
