Escape your life for a little while — come play in mine.

Hoo boy, this week has been strictly about keeping my head above water.

Obviously, I’m pleased that Shoothouse Barbie and Dr. Boyfriend were able to stay, but it’s meant three nights in a row of going to bed past midnight.  Lissa needs more sleep than that to keep her coat shiny!

Plus, work has been a sh*tshow this week.  One of our group was scheduled for maternity in mid-January, but the inconsiderate little punk decided to make an unexpected appearance early Monday morning.  Kids these days!  Not even out of the womb and they’re wrecking everyone’s schedules!

I kid, I kid; we’re all pleased she delivered safely and that the baby was healthy.  Duh.  But since the mother doesn’t have access to a computer while she’s in the hospital, and she only called once, and my boss is out of the office this week, it’s been a mad scramble to divvy up her work and get it completed.

Anyway, long story short, I made some new friends this week, I saw some old friends, I had wonderful company, I miss my husband (who comes home tonight – yay!), and I’m completely exhausted.  I’m turning my caffeine mainline up to 4000 volts.

Anyone have fun plans for New Year?

    One good thing about the baby arriving early is that it qualifies as a deduction for this year.

    Thank you soooooooooooo much for the lovely accomodations and company. We had a wonderful time. Next year, we hope to plan things better ahead of time, and perhaps stay for the new year! See you in March, babe!
