I love time off from work. It’s my favorite. I think I was at work a total of 2 days last week between the holiday and taking an extra day off and having work-related errands that kept me out of the office. But now it’s Tuesday and the “vacation” is officially over and I have to get myself back into a routine of actually being useful in the office.
It sure was a good week, though. Between 4th of July at the beach and family fun this past weekend and taking a little bit of time to relax, it was definitely much-needed time away from work.
On Saturday we got to spend some time with Jim’s family. His mom and sister and her family, his cousin and his family and his aunt and uncles. I got to hang out with this little one: the newest little niece, Charlotte. Isn’t she adorable?
She spent most of the day sleeping. According to Tricia, her awake time is in the evening. It was only like 3 in the afternoon at this point, so she was still gathering her strength for a night of keeping mommy up!
Seriously. Way too cute, right? She turned one month old today.
Charlotte has an older brother, Cameron, who is almost two (his birthday is in a month). Jim’s cousin Bryan has a son named, Cody, who just turned 2 on the 4th. (Hold on, I’m going to go facebook jack some photos for ya!)
That night we went out to Swabbie’s on the river with Jim’s uncle Ken. They had a band playing and we had some drinks and a bite to eat. Evidently they have the best tacos around, but I wouldn’t know due to my inability to eat the part that makes it a taco: the tortilla. They sure looked delicious though.
(You almost cant tell I am dehydrating, here, in the almost unbearable heat…”keep drinking”)
So, needless to say, after all that fun, it’s been hard getting back into the boring old swing of things. And now that I’ve stopped “working” to write this post, it’s unlikely I’ll be very productive for the rest of the day. It’s a good thing I got a lot done this morning!
Hope you’re having a lovely Tuesday!
