Honey I'm Home!

Well technically it's not home home but it feels like some sort of a home for me. I am finally out of the Guatemalan Sweat Shop as I liked to call it and back to the Alaskan Coast Line! I am back in the law firm that I was temping at previously and I am LOVIN it - I hope this time may be a little more permanent!

It seems as though I was missed! I got tons of hugs and we missed you's all around and things are just like I hadn't left! Much better than the other place I was at. Oh and the best part is that instead of 86 in this office it's more like 68!

I know I have been MIA for almost 3 weeks but between DH's birthday, Father's Day and everything else going on I just haven't had much time.

For DH's birthday I got him a 1 hour or so flight up in a little Cessna over the East Coast of FL. He had a blast and complained it was too short. Add that to the tickets that were purchased for everyone for christmas to see blue man group and it was a great night!

Father's Day was spent at MOSI in Tampa and then we headed to BGT for a couple of hours. Another great day!

So thats where I have been!

One of those weeks...

OH MY GOODNESS, It's been a wild and crazy kinda week... Let me give you just a little snapshot of one evening... I am subjected to traffic that lengthens my drive home. A trip that normally is 45 minutes or an hour turned into TWO HOURS!!!! So we decide instead of cooking, making leftovers would be the way to go MUCH quicker right? Well I take out a pot of conch chowder and some cresent rolls and with both hands full I take 4 steps to the stove put the pot down and turn around to find my DS had gotten to the fridge and the contents before i could close it and I had left over olive garden spaghetti and chicken on the floor and there he sits in the middle of it salad dressing bottle in one hand. Deciding that the salad dressing wasn't quite as fun anymore he grabs the chicken from the floor and with two hands starts knawing on it. All I could do is grab the camera and laugh. And yes he finished the piece of chicken.

Other highlights of the week included DD being out in my MIL's yard and getting bit by about 75 - 100 red fire ants and having to treat those, and DH getting one of his optic migraines.

THEN this morning I stop by Dunkin Donuts thinking that a chocolate iced coffee and an untoasted bagel with salmon cream cheese would be yummy! So I order, pay, get my food and pull away from the drive through. I go to grab the bagel - it's cold and toasted (how long it had been sitting there who knows) the edges are burnt and the cream cheese is in a single serving tub and there's a knife in the bag... UMMM HELLO???? How in the hell are you supposed to drive down the road and spread cream cheese on a bagel... and darn it I didn't want it toasted... and IF I had it should have been WARM!!!! That chocolate iced coffee that I wanted... yeah it was plain. The manager got a nice little call from me.

So I am eternally greatful it's friday cause Im not sure if I could handle another day this week!!! Hopefully the weekend is better!
