Week 4: Back to work today

Tuesday, September 02, 2008

It's always hard going back to work after so many days off. I've always said I couldn't be a stay at home mom, but...it still is nice knowing when you wake up in the morning you don't have to go into the office!

Monday morning I didn't wake up until 10:00!!! Granted, we did stay up late to watch a movie (this movie was wild), but I still cannot believe we slept that late. Even Emma - she only got up when her daddy went to get her out of bed!!

The weekend was very fun, though. Extremely hot, but still fun. I haven't uploaded my pics yet, except for this one, which I was using to play with texture overlays for fake ttv. I have a bunch, though so will be going through this this week & getting them posted.

Michael won a very nice shotgun at the shoot this weekend and got to go dove hunting yesterday to try it out - needless to say we're grilling dove tonight. It's in the fridge marinating now.

We ended up coming home Sunday - just didn't want to risk the drive being so terrible on Monday b/c of the storm. Who knows what people planned on doing. Also, we wanted to try to get together with some friends Monday, but unfortunately we weren't able to after all. It was nice to have a day home to just relax after being gone for four days, though. I had to come into the office Thursday morning for a meeting, but after that I left and we spent the morning getting things ready and hit the road that afternoon. So we spent Thursday, Friday, & Saturday nights in East Texas.

I had hoped Gustav would at least bring us more rain and cooler temperatures, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen. Yesterday we got some pretty strong wind and a bit of rain, but it only lasted for a very short time.

Well, at least this is a short work week - always good to have after having a few days off - ease back into things!!
