Back to Reality, Back to the Here and Now (you can thank me for having this song stuck in your head all day) ... I am back in the desert after a long - long - did I mention long - cold week in NJ or as I refer to it as Tax He**! It was that good people - not! 11 hour days of tax with people who like to hear themselves talk! This resulted in breaks and lunch being delayed and shortened almost every single day (not good for a girl like me who enjoys eating). As if that wasn't enough we had two group dinners too! Ahh it was like the gift that just kept giving!
After two weekends in a row being cut short due to travel ... I was in bed by 8:15 p.m. last night. Pretty romantic for Valentine's Day! In my defense I picked up Pei Wei for dinner and brought Mr. ESPN beer back from NJ (his favorite) and thanks to the Kingston Queen for packing some of his beer in her suitcase too!
Mr. ESPN survived last week and didn't need to call in back up support, although I think he was just as excited to see me as the girls were - or maybe it was because he knew I had beer in my suitcase! Whatever it was he was happy! Funny comment from Chatty at the airport.
Chatty: "Mom I learned how to shoot tonight!"
Me (dazed and confused): "You learned how to what tonight?"
Chatty: "I learned how to shoot!"
Me: "Umm what?"
Chatty: "I learned how to shoot a goal at soccer tonight!"
Me (relieved): "Oh that's great!"
Note to self remind Chatty using the term shoot at an airport isn't the best idea in the world.
Happy Birthday to my Granny yesterday! The girls and I called her last night and both sang their own rendition of Happy Birthday to her. It was cute!
OK - is it Friday yet???
