Monday Memo

28 Sep

It’s Monday already? I really don’t know how the weekends fly by so quickly.

* One of our co-workers had emergency surgery late last night so the whole office is in a tizzy trying to figure out how to cover his work the next week or two. Which means I’ll be working a few more hours this week. Which means blogging may be light. Which means I may be like the Tazmanian Devil, running around in a cloud of my own dust.

* Many of you know that we (meaning me, Irish, and Jack) went to visit Nilsa, Sweets & SoMi this weekend. In a word: INCREDIBLE. In many words: please go read Nilsa’s blog for now until I have more time to write about what an amazing trip it was because seriously it was the perfect little getaway. I can’t wait to return to Chicago for more visits with Nilsa and the other fabulous Chicago bloggers I didn’t get to catch-up with.

* I’m struggling to wrap my brain around the fact that tomorrow I’m turning 26, which I know is no big deal, but I can’t believe it’s really tomorrow. I’ll be celebrating in a low-key fashion with my family and Irish around me for a Mexican dinner. That’s about as celebratory as I get these days and I’m more than okay with it.

* All you need is LOVE. Congratulations to EP on her engagement! And Mel on her upcoming nuptials. And two of my near and dear friends on their one-year wedding anniversary (Miss Kyla and my BFF MelO). All the excitement has me singing the “Love Is all Around Us…” song from Love Actually in my head non-stop.

    Ummmm, Hieeeeeeya! Miss you guys already. You made our home feel a little more cozy this weekend. Thanks for the positive energy you brought our way. Hope all is getting better for your co-worker, that work isn’t nearly as dizzying as it could be and that you really do get to relax and enjoy being 26. I’ve got to tell ya that 25-30 were some of my most favorite years to date!

    I am so glad that you had a great trip to Nilsa’s, that makes me happy! I hope you get some time to just relax and unwind some in the evenings since work will be a little crazy it sounds like. I hope we can catch up at some point!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! I remember 26, I felt so old. Now that I’m 30, part of me feels old but the other half doesn’t! =)
