oh, hello

26 Feb


Oh, hello there. Sorry I have been MIA the last week. My excuses are as follows…last week was a beyond shitty week. I got some disappointing & surprising news from one of my work accounts and it made everything feel difficult. It put me in a total tailspin. Then Brian had to leave town for a work trip to Oregon and Frank  behaved extra bratty while he was gone making the week feel even harder and making it feel impossible to do anything. Luckily, my other excuse for being absent is a good one…we spent four days in Sedona, AZ with some friends. It was exactly what the doctor ordered. I needed a little break from my everyday life (Frank included) and some R & R. I spent the four days either sleeping (I was the first one in bed every night), eating (I was on a Mexican food tour), drinking (prickly pear margaritas or white wine), hot tubbing & reading (I cannot get enough of the Goldfinch). Thankfully, I came back from the trip feeling lighter and more positive. With age I am learning to ride out the shitty days and weeks knowing from experience everything changes and usually rather quickly.

I know it’s only Wednesday and things could take a turn for the worse but this week has been a good one. Not only because I’m feeling more positive but also because today is Brian’s birthday and I can’t really be in a bad mood when it’s the love of my life’s birthday.

Happy Birthday to my favorite human. You make my world a happier place and I am so grateful for all that you do.  I couldn’t love you more and I am so happy you were born.

    I read your blog often, but I have been remiss in commenting 😦
    Sometimes you have a week like that don’t you? I had one of those last week, and it lasted into the weekend. It was only after a crying jag (and a few blondies) that it subsided.
    I am glad to hear that you could get away and just be separated from your everyday life for a little while. Sometimes that is the best cure for a bad couple of days.
    Happy birthday to Brian as well.

    I hope you post more about Sedona- dying to go there. As for your bad week, girl, I know how it goes- the last two months have been very trying over here. But it helps me to try to remember the big picture- is my life really that bad? Or is it a moment, that will pass?
    Also: how can you ever be mad at Frankalicious?
    And: Happy birthday to your man. Celebrate! xx
