If we were having coffee, I would tell you…that this past week has been SO draining! Work has been particularly grueling and I spend 80-90% of my days in very long meetings. We are definitely getting work done, but the phase of the project right now is all about negotiations and we’ve been handed many curveballs along the way. On top of that, I’ve been keeping very busy with marathon training, and my Tuesday and Thursday runs are 5 miles a piece! I’ve been falling asleep early every night…I need some serious rest this weekend!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…how much I appreciate everyone’s kind words as I deal with my mother’s recent passing. Some days are better than others. I’ve been having a lot of flashbacks and memories of our time together as a kid, especially in high school when I was the last one still home and it was just the two of us most of the time. Losing my mother suddenly and at such a young age (she was only 64) has shaken me to the core, but I am doing my best to focus on the positive, be grateful that I was able to say goodbye, and remember how blessed I truly am. I’m glad she’s in a MUCH better place and no longer has to suffer or feel any pain.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…that wedding planning has still been in progress. You may remember that I was keeping busy checking out venues almost every weekend. I had a really extensive list of venues with all the details broken out…and now I’m down to 2 locations…I think! I went to a venue last weekend and loved it…then we had brunch in the restaurant and the food was awful! I had the worst chicken and waffles in my life and I felt like I had food poisoning! Needless to say, that spot is off the list. But on a brighter note, I have an appointment to try on wedding dresses Saturday night! I’m nervous but excited…I have no idea what type of dress will suit my body type. I hope to come out with some inspiration!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you…that Super Bowl Sunday is a very exciting time for us Philadelphians! I am not an Eagles fan by any stretch of the imagination, but considering that I’ve lived in this city for so long and I was a freshman in college when the Eagles played the Patriots 13 years ago…I’m really looking forward to the rematch. Philly sports fans are pretty scary though…whether they win or lose, they will be absolutely unbearable for the rest of the year! But I’d rather them be happy than angry! As for the Halftime Show, I have a love/hate relationship with Justin Timberlake, so I’m torn as to whether I’ll watch his performance. I also have vivid memories of watching him and Janet “make history” at the Super Bowl, and feel “some type of way” about how he got out of that situation without consequences. But I digress!
I hope you have a great weekend! What would you share with me over coffee?
