Coming up for air

I can hardly believe that it is Thursday night!  I believe this is the first time that I've been on Blogger all week, even to read!  The days have tumbled by since last weekend as we were busy with various engagements.  Saturday night, Husband and I met with Husband's siblings in Portland.  After quite a bit of city walking, we cozied in for a late dinner at On Deck, a sports bar & grill in the Pearl District. Sunday night, we attended a 30th birthday party which included a limo, good friends, good eats and drinks around a grand piano at a great restaurant overlooking the city. 

We even had a rainbow view of the city that day!

 Thanks to Jeremy.

We have the best friends.

And then the week took over.  I've been working like I've never worked in my married life since I've had kids!  Yes, I am a stay-at-home-mama, but I also take care of the books for my husband's general contracting business, and write.  But this week was different as we have hired a specialist to teach me a thing or two about my Quickbooks and help me get some things more organized.  So, time gets tight around these parts, and this week--well there's hardly been time for a break!  Husband could hardly take me seriously when I told him that I was feeling burned out earlier tonight.  I'm used to a whole other kind of work--the kind that involves hugs, kisses, meals and baths, not nine hours in front of a computer and sorting files.  He's used to working twelve hour days if need be, and dreaming work in his sleep at times.

On top of this brain-puzzling stress, the sun has finally shown up in this region!  I was afraid we were going to have to wait till next year!  To be inside all day is a bit unfortunate, but is the small price I pay to be the wife of a successful business owner, whom I am immensely grateful! Plus, it is nice to be needed. 

Now, I will wind down with the memoir I am reading called, Please Stop Laughing at Me by Jodee Blanco.  It's a memoir of peer abuse, and I am excited to find out how she overcomes her ordeal.  Tomorrow is one more day hard at it and then I'll do like all the other hard working people and kick back and enjoy the weekend--more than ever.



“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
