Jet Lag...

Last night I was falling asleep on the couch while catching up on DVRs and woke up around 11.  I had a minute where I thought seriously about just staying right where I was.  I made it bed and managed to stay asleep until about 5:30am.  This is an improvement over yesterday's 4am wake-up and the 3:30 from Sunday.  Maybe by Friday I'll be back to normal?  (Or as normal as I can be)

Today is mattress moving day!  I am actually very excited.  I am getting my "brand new" mattress from storage and will finally have it in the house.  There is some discussion about what will be done with the old mattress but that will be figured out soon enough, I just need to be a little crowded for a few days while I either give in and rearrange stuff of just toss the old one when I get too frustrated.

I miss my husband and can't wait until we have a larger place to live in!

Home Sweet Home

So...for many reasons I have no words for my lack of posting the last couple of weeks.  It was a wonderful 14 days and the jet-lag is catching up with me tonight.  So a few gorgeous moments for your viewing pleasure and back to real life and (hopefully) some more regular posts starting tomorrow.

I need more coffee!!

I just need more.  I haven't been sleeping well this week, there is a lot going on and I keep waking up around 3-4am and have trouble falling back asleep.  Apart from being frustrrated, after 4 days of this I am TIRED!  Of course, I have a million things to at work today so it'll be a long one.

But, at the end of it there will be a reward.  I'll be offline for the next 2 weeks, give or take but all for good things.  So, look for me again at the end of February!  I thought about putting up some planned posts for the anticipated time but just haven't had a moment to prepare them.  So, my 10 loyal readers will just have to miss me until then!!

Warm weather productivity

It's February 6th and my windows are open wide to let in the beautiful fresh air!  I'm a little worried that Mother Natures is going to strike come March like it did at the end of October to make up for all of this loveliness now.  It's bright and sunny and fresh smelling inside the condo today which I love.

We had a shorter day today because of conferences and I have been so productive with my extra 2 hours!  I have done some organization and laundry-related stuff around the house, picked out my clothes for the next couple of days, taken out the recycling and put my kitchen back together after this weekend's baking.  (Did you see the great Giants game last night?!!)  I also went to the gym and am now taking a little DVR break.  It's great to feel that I've done a bunch of things that needed doing and still have time to relax before tonight's rehearsal.  Not bad for a Monday :)

Go Giants!

Happy Superbowl Sunday!!

For those of you unaware, the Giants are in the Superbowl tonight!  We're doing a small party with the family because Dad wants to be able to pay attention to the game...has he forgotten how much my sisters and I talk?  At least he'll have support from my brothers in-law who will be almost as focused on the game (though they're Eagles fans)

I am really excited because I've made Giants Blue Velvet cupckaes with cream cheese frosting!  I even made the decorations myself....the first "piping" challenge I've given myself in a while.  I'd forgotton what a pain royal icing is and how hard it is to get a good red color.  I think they came out pretty well, what do you think?
