Short Week in the Office

I'm so glad it's Friday!!  I've been out it a little all week.  I was traveling for work and that always throws off my schedule.  I left Sunday for Houston and got home Wednesday night.  I had 3 days worth of new software training and while it was very helpful...it was VERY boring and made for extremely long days!!!  I did get to see one of my great friends that I hadn't seen in years which made the whole trip worth while.  I mean the guy lives in Austin and works about half way between Austin and Houston and he drove over to see me and take me to dinner.  I'm definitely going to have to make a trip to Austin just to visit later this year!!

So, being out of the office for three days makes for a very stressful two day week in the office.  Last night I felt the need to a little dancing and music so I headed to the bar with some friends to see Roger Creager and drink and dance the night away...made 5:30 this morning a little rough.

I'm working all day today and then hoping for an amazing weekend.  Christy is coming down from Denver to celebrate her birthday and we intend on doing lots of celebrating.  Drinks tonight, bar tomorrow night and Sunday I'm hosting football and food at my house!  Hope it's a great weekend for everyone!

The first week...

Well...I made it thru the first week of the new year...almost. Just 8 hours left and it will be the weekend.  Work has been crazy, house work has been abundant, and there has been very little relaxation.  I started working out and eating better but haven't exercised as much as I wanted.  Baby steps right?

This weekend should be pretty low key.  Finish cleaning house and pack for a work trip to Houston.  As much as I love to travel for any reason, I HATE packing.  I'm the girl that has a hard time deciding what I'm going to wear for three days and sticking to it.

Back to work, I've got stacks of paperwork to get rid of before I leave.  Happy Weekend!!!

New Years Happenings

I had another crazy eventful weekend.  Just like Christmas week we started on Thursday with a birthday party for my brother (his birthday is NYE but we were all going to be scattered in different places so we partied early).  We went back to our local hangout and enjoyed each others company until they kicked us out.  I had Friday and Monday off so I started my day Friday packing up and running a couple of errands before heading out to a friends ranch to enjoy a weekend without phones, driving, and crazy people. 

We went to a little cantina Friday night and had a blast!!  We drank and talked and watched a little UFC...which seemed really odd in this little cantina in this tiny tiny town. 

Saturday we got up and got to prepping food for the New Years Eve festivities.  We had way more food than needed.  We got ourselves ready and headed across to the party house...10 miles away.  Did I mention that there was tons of snow and plenty of muddy slick roads?  I'm talking 3' snow drifts.  Well all those slick country roads led to this...

Yea...I slid off the road...I'm talking totally stuck...not moving anywhere.  It made for a not great start to the celebration.  Although, I got over it quickly and proceeded to the festivities of the night (which included a late night trip to get my truck out of the ditch after every thing froze.  That's the joys of ranch life?!

We enjoyed our evening and took NO pictures...well none that are worth showing at least.  Counted down to midnight and made it to bed not long after.

Sunday morning I came home and cleaned up and headed to Chili's to continue my New Years celebrations with a friend who came in from Colorado...we drank and ate...  And I was at home in bed by 7:30!!  Apparently I had to much fun all weekend.

My time off on Monday included sleeping in, running errands, and putting up fence for horses.  Nothing too exciting.

I'm back to work and crazy busy but will be out next week in Houston for work for a few days.
