Where did we leave off?

Oh, right. I was headed to Phoenix for a wedding and dreading leaving Remy at home for the weekend.

So much has happened between then and now including:

(a) the stomach flu plague of 2017, courtesy of one of my child’s small friends

(b) me almost passing out at work on Friday because of the aforementioned plague

(c) having to fly across the country and back and overall hold myself together/make wedding speeches/look presentable in front of a lot of people on no sleep and no food for daaayyyyzzzz

(d) a three hour plane delay

(e) and did I mention NO SLEEP

So excuse me for my extended absence. I’ve now tried to write this post three times after work and each time would just fall asleep at my computer.

It has been a week.

I’ve been drinking pumpkin beers for dessert every night (on top of actual dessert) and I’m not even sorry about it.

Friday especially was just a rough day. At the end of every week I feel like I’ve earned the weekend, but this weekend (and by weekend I mean Sunday, my one day off) I earned it. Maybe that means someone will cook dinner for me instead of the other way around? Doubtful. But a girl can hope.

Tell me all about your fun weekend plans in the comments! I want to live vicariously through them.
