Home Sweet Home

As you may know, work just smashed me upside the head this week.  The highlights:  one and a bit hours of sleep on Wednesday night; 14 hours in a row in the same boardroom (out of the office) on Thursday; 9 hours in that same boardroom on Friday; nothing to eat between Thursday am and Friday evening except for bananas, applesauce, a Clif bar and a Pro bar; 18.5 hours billed on Thursday (and I was home by 10pm); 44 hours in high-heeled shoes in 3 days; about a million sheets of paper; three paper cuts; deal finally closed Friday at about 5pm.  I am, quite simply, exhausted.

But, I am home.  We had a nice dinner at Dharma Kitchen last night, a good sleep, and a relaxed cup of coffee this morning.  I got to take Maxy for a walk in the sunshine, and I just polished off a peanut butter and banana shake.  Soon, I will be off to play football (again, in the sunshine) with my good friends.  Life is actually pretty good.

My two favourite things about home.

I know this picture is blurry, but I really like it that way.* 

*Also, this is how they looked to me through tired eyes, when I finally got home last night, so it seemed appropriate.



  1. Cute picture and yes, it does seem like you’re looking at it with tired eyes. I cannot believe you worked that many hours and that is way too much time in high heels! HOpe this next week is a whole lot more restful for you and I’ll see you again, next Saturday, when we have a game that is whole lot more fun!
