Now, I haven't completely gone off the grid. I'm already planning our fall schedule and the logistics, including holiday menus and decorating. I only have a few loose ends and I'll be set. I'm just hoping I can get a better handle on things this year, because by the end of last year I felt like I was treading water.
Hubby is wrapping up a local project at work, and just in time he has landed a new gig that doesn't require him to travel. That monkey on our backs has finally been lifted. No matter how many in-town assignments he's been fortunate enough to work on, the nature of his work requires him to travel. With this new company and position, comes a more regional structure (=no travel), a promotion and raise. Bye bye monkey!
Here's what I've been up to since my last post. I dare not ask myself whether I eat to live, or live to eat. Frankly, I'm ashamed of the answer!
Side note: When "Scandal Thursdays" return in the fall, we'll have to find another (healthier) treat to enjoy while watching Olivia Pope and the gang. Weekly indulgences of creme brulee and molten lava cakes are just NOT a good idea!
Chocolate dipped shortbread cookies
Lobster macaroni and cheese
Molten lava cakes a la mode
Monster Sub Sandwich (poolside lunch)
Fresh Lemonade (school treat)
Iced Sugar Cookies (end of season football party)
