Turns out 4:30 on a Friday is an awesome time to go to the DMV if you don’t have an appointment. I’ve never seen it so empty.

Sniffing a little bit too. I love this kind of news.

This is why I haven’t posted pics lately. :) I’ve been working like a mad woman-sometimes over 12 hours, even though I’m “part time”. I planned/hosted my first solo event on September 9th, wrote and submitted a grant proposal, arranged our Board of Directors meeting, hosted 210 risk managers on campus, and am working on an event for over 1000 people next Wednesday. Along with my “regular” job duties. We’ve also lost two key staff members this month. I’m over my head and exhausted. 

Sophia’s 13th birthday was October 2nd, and I planned her party this Saturday at the very last minute. But it went well. So today I slept till 10:30, napped a little more, then slept from 4:00-8:00 tonight. In between, I’ve been helping with homework and editing Isabella’s college applications.

Tomorrow I start the fray again. Wednesday is the big event. Then Thursday we’re having an event for the president of Lloyd’s. Friday is the one year anniversary of my sister’s fiancé dying, so I’m spending the night with her. Maybe after this week I’ll have more tumblr time.

First meal in two days. Maybe hot tamales aren’t the wisest choice, but Luisa, who helps clean my house, brought them over still piping hot. And they seem to be just what I needed. Life is good!
