Weekly Wrap-Up

Happy Friday, y’all! How’s your week been? Mine has been busy, but I’m starting to think that’s a permanent state. I got back from Texas last Sunday at around 9 p.m. and pretty much crashed into bed.

I’d planned to sleep until I woke up on Monday, but my crazy body is now trained to wake up around 7:30 a.m. {sigh} Technically I did sleep until I woke up; I was just hoping it would be a little later than that.

Austin weird

I would have bought this as my souvenir from Austin if I’d seen it before I was boarding the plane. 🙂

I got up and worked on catching up some online work until around noon. Then, the family and I loaded up to go to lunch. Everyone was home since Brian was off and Brianna graduated cosmetology school last week, but hasn’t scheduled her exam yet. It was a rare treat to have everyone together for lunch.

The rest of the day was packed with grocery shopping and getting Brian packed up to leave that night. Yep, I got home from an out-of-town trip and 24 hours later Brian left for one. We hardly ever travel, but we both wound up doing so at the same time this month. Brian will be home this afternoon, though. Yay!

Next week was our planned break week, but after such a busy weekend, I decided that this week would be a much better time for a break. Of course, Josh and Megan didn’t argue with that plan.


What happens when you use the can opener when all the cats are in the house because it’s frigid and snowing outside. They were so disappointed that it wasn’t tuna.

We’ve had a couple of appointments this week, some outings with friends, I had lunch with a friend, online work, and, of course, there was laundry to catch up after traveling.

I was introduced to a new author recently and enjoyed her latest book, Cold Shot, as my in-flight entertainment during my trip. I finished it Wednesday while waiting on Megan at an appointment.

I’m kicking myself for starting with it, though. It’s the first in her new series, which means I’m going to have to wait awhile for the next book. I should have started with Submerged, the first in her completed series. I started it last night.

three cats

Brian and I talked about having a date night tonight, but with it being Valentine’s Day weekend most places are probably going to be packed. I think we may get take-out and catch up on our favorite TV shows On Demand. After such a busy week and so much time apart, an evening at home sounds like the ideal Friday night to me.

  1. I think that a movie night in sounds like a great idea (and not just because the next season of Z Nation is out on Netflix)! We’re doing more or less the same thing this weekend….it’s too cold and neither of us is social enough to want to drive to the next town over for a meal.
